Hewlett Packard Enterprise Doubles Down on Data-Centric Security for Governments and Global Enterprises

MAY 10, 2016 • News Advisory

HPE provides organizations with NIST-standardized data security methods to mitigate data breaches and adhere to data privacy compliance regulations such as the European Commissions GDPR


PALO ALTO, Calif., May 10, 2016 Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced the global release of HPE SecureData with Hyper Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE), and Hyper Secure Stateless Tokenization (SST). The new Hyper FPE technology delivers a proven and NIST-standardized method of protecting data in use, at rest, and in motion for government agencies, global enterprises, and European organizations that need to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. It includes Unicode format- and character set-preserving encryption for data in languages such as German, French, Spanish, Turkish, and more.


With the influx of cloud, Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT), the attack surface is rapidly expanding, making it critical for organizations to take a data-centric approach to securing their sensitive information. In the event of a breach, strong end-to-end encryption and tokenization will render stolen data useless to attackers and thereby mitigate the financial, operational and reputational ramifications. As such, IDC estimates that total GDPR related security software spending in Europe will reach $811 million in 2016, $1,335 million in 2017 and $1,713 million in 20181.


With the dissolving network perimeter, organizations are now challenged with protecting what attackers are actually after the data, said Albert Biketi, vice president and general manager, HPE Security Data Security at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. HPEs new data-centric Hyper FPE and Hyper SST solutions offer next generation encryption and tokenization to strengthen the data security posture for customers while ensuring they maintain regulatory compliance.


Hyper FPE for a New Era of Encryption in the Data-driven Economy

Hyper FPE is critical to protecting sensitive personal and structured data required by existing and emerging privacy frameworks such as payment card information (PCI), national identification, and social security numbers while preserving the original data formats. HPE Hyper FPE is also optimized for protecting sensitive data in Connected Car IoT Systems and Connected Home use cases that require de-identification of location information, mobile device personal identifies, and manufacturer identifier codes needed to meet data security and privacy requirements.


HPE SecureData with Hyper FPE technology provides accelerated encryption performance up to 170% in conservative scenarios, building on todays proven high-speed FPE technology, while aligning to the high volume needs of next generation Big Data, cloud, and IoT scenarios2. The result is a strong encryption scheme that allows for minimal modifications to the way that existing applications and databases work significantly reducing complexity for customers.


Enhancing Data Security with Hyper SST

Enterprises, merchants and payment processors are challenged with protecting high value sensitive data such as PCI, and must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and data privacy laws that have increasing compliance scrutiny. To help customers address mounting complexities and costs, HPE SecureData with Hyper SST offers an enhanced, patented approach to tokenization that maximizes speed, scalability, security, and manageability of the tokenization process, effectively doubling the existing high octane HPE SST tokenization performance.



Hyper FPE and HPE Hyper SST are currently available globally as part of the HPE SecureData family delivering data security for compliance, governance and risk reduction across enterprise, cloud, big data, payments, mobile data capture, and mission critical systems.
