Reasons for choosing Data Secure included:
  • simplicity through the provision of user profiles
  • provisioning of pre-configured masking profiles
  • speed, thanks to automation
  • selective copying and masking of fields

IN BRIEF: MAPA CHOSE DATA SECURE AND DATA DISCLOSE

 

Increasing globalization demanded that MAPA change the way they handled test environments. Ten years ago, the German site at MAPA included one SAP® ERP system. Today, ten additional company codes are administered from this site.

Creating accurate testing data in non-production systems was a real need, but the security risks of the non-production systems left them feeling exposed. Managing the risk through Authorizations didn’t provide sufficient security.

Choosing Data Secure™ was immediately obvious; despite being a comprehensive application, it was still easy for functional users to use. An important selection criterion was performance, because MAPA needed to mask or scramble large volumes of SAP HCM data.

MAPA also uses Data Disclose™ to search their SAP landscape for sensitive data, which helps them comply with GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation).

Thanks to Data Secure, we can anonymize all sensitive SAP HCM data, such as employee-related data, in a very short time. The biggest advantage of Data Disclose is that data integrity is guaranteed; customers’ sensitive data is anonymized but all orders and items sold are still accessible. All test systems stay fully functional, and test orders are still editable.”
