Thales and SAP have partnered to provide an integrated data protection solution for SAP applications. Thales CipherTrust Tokenization now secures SAP application data via the SAP Data Custodian. Via the SAP Data Custodian, SAP customers can choose to tokenize specific fields and assign access policies that determine which users have access to sensitive data. Specific functions such as HR, Finance, and Legal may all have access to the same application, but have permissions to see different application fields. Any field that isn’t authorized will show token values in place of real data.
