Hewlett Packard Enterprise Helps Organizations Build Data Security into Mobile

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 1, 2016 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today introduced HPE SecureData Mobile, an end-to-end data encryption solution designed to protect sensitive information in mobile environments. HPE SecureData Mobile expands upon the HPE SecureData product portfolio, enabling organizations to build data security into their mobile applications and safeguard the data throughout its full lifecycle – at rest, in motion, and in use – extending security far beyond traditional technologies such as TLS, VPN, and storage encryption.

By year-end, mobile share of ecommerce transactions is forecasted to reach 40 percent globally1. There’s a critical need to secure sensitive payment card data transmitted via mobile applications as adversaries increasingly focus on attacking mobile platforms2. In addition, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Personal Heath Information (PHI) are being transmitted through mobile environments across various industries and presenting an ongoing challenge to organizations responsible for securing that data.

“As all industries increasingly leverage mobile applications to collect and store sensitive customer information, adversaries have taken notice and are shifting their focus to the mobile attack surface,” said Albert Biketi, vice president and general manager, HPE Security – Data Security for Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “HPE enables customers to build data security into their applications at the outset and ensures that data is protected from the moment it’s entered into a mobile application throughout its full lifecycle.”

HPE SecureData Mobile provides data capture and security from the native iOS or Android mobile application through the entire enterprise data lifecycle and payment data stream. This is important as a majority of mobile applications track sensitive data such as geolocation, according to a HPE Mobile Application Security Report announced today3. The solution leverages HPE Format-Preserving Encryption, a standards-based encryption to make only minimal modifications to existing applications, while providing data security for mobile applications or mobile purchases.

HPE SecureData Mobile ensures organizations remain in compliance with PCI (Payment Card Industry,) PII, PHI and other industry standards. The solution also supports HPE Stateless Key Management architecture, which enables on-demand key generation and re-generation without an ever-growing key store. The result is a system that can be infinitely scaled across distributed physical and logical locations for a low operational and infrastructure cost.

Availability
HPE SecureData Mobile is currently available globally as part of the HPE SecureData family. Additional information about this offering and other HPE Security solutions is available at the HPE booth No. 3411, at the RSA Conference 2016 taking place this week in San Francisco.
