Protect High Value Data
HPE SecureData has achieved the industry’s first Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 validation of Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE). Now government agencies, and private contractors serving government customers, can leverage the same powerful and proven technology that has transformed cybersecurity in the private sector.
HPE SecureData with Hyper FPE “de-identifies” sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) such as social security numbers (SSN), and other high value data, rendering it useless to attackers in the event of a security breach. This allows government agencies to securely leverage the de-identified data for big-data analytics, and collaborate with shared data between other agencies or contractors. It also allows government agencies to adopt new technologies such as the cloud or Hadoop or invest in innovations such as IoT, all while lowering the risk of disclosing sensitive personal data or compromising high value classified data.
HPE SecureData now has the world’s first FIPS-validated AES-FF1 encryption configuration option to operate in strict FIPS mode. This enables public sector customers to take advantage of true FIPS-validated and approved cryptography when building compliance programs for regulations such as the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 data security requirements, DFARS CUI, and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
The legacy challenge
A major challenge faced by federal agencies is the dependency on legacy applications and platforms with limited native data security options. HPE SecureData helps build data security into both new and decades-old legacy applications, de-identifying high-value data classes; for example, protecting classified information, or eliminating reliance on using Social Security Numbers for business processes. Security assurance is increased, while unleashing utility of data for secure adoption of big data analytics, Hadoop and other new applications and solutions.
