Encrypting Cloud data

… prior to them leaving the company and being processed in the Cloud.

Only encrypted – and thus non-critical – data is processed in the Cloud – no sensitive data is leaving the company. All Cloud computing benefits may be used unrestrictedly.

Because of the encryption’s high security level, person related data – according to the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) – especially worth of protection, become non-critical and – order data processing-free data. A tremendous advantage – also for the Cloud provider.

Secure authentication and authorization check

Contrary to conventional back-end systems the eperi solution verifies user with security mechanisms completely capable of being integrated into the existing company administration of users, roles and certificates. Each single request is verified and processed only if the user is authorized for the requested company network area.

The eperi Gateway for Cloud Apps unifies the authentication as well as the authorization. The eperi solution is extremely flexible, because you may comfortably integrate nearly any back-end system using the modeling component. Even complex multi-level log-in processes may be mapped, e.g. by using a two-factor-authentication for a user group.

Single Sign-On (SSO) – in the Cloud

The generic Single Sign-On (SSO) seamlessly integrates into existing applications. Users  have to authenticate only once to gain access to all systems and applications in the Cloud. The identity of administrators and all other in-house users is hidden from the Cloud systems. This means additional security. The eperi solution centrally administers all user identities in the company. This simplifies external access since the user administration is done in one system only. All standard log-in procedures are supported like e.g. SAP Netweaver, Microsoft SharePoint and Google Apps. Non-standardized applications are also supported.

Single Sign on (SSO) – On premise

The eperi Gateway for Cloud Apps standardizes the authentication as well as the authorization. The eperi solution is extremely flexible as with our modeling component nearly any backend system may be comfortably connected. At each call the eperi Gateway verifies the authorized user’s rights.

We are able to map nearly any complex log-in-processes. The external access is simplified as the user administration is done in only one system .

Optional: Hide the User Identities

  • Encryption and optional tokenization

    Encrypting sensitive data, optionally generating substitute values – only non-critical data is processed in the cloud. Because of intelligent procedures, there is no mathematical connection between original and substitute value.

  • CROSS-DOMAIN DATA ACCESS

    The generic Single Sign-On solution seamlessly integrates into existing applications. Users have to authenticate only once to gain secure access to all systems and applications in the Cloud.

  • Federated Identity Management

    The eperi Gateway for Cloud Apps enables centrally managing all user identities – in an external Active Directory, LDAP or the eperi Gateway itself. The eperi Gateway also supports SAP Netweaver, Microsoft SharePoint and Google Apps– but also non-standardized applications.

  • Without modifying existing systems - SAAS ready

    The eperi Gateway for Databases works as network component – as Reverse or Forward Proxy. So existing systems do not have to be modified. The solution can unproblematic be used for SaaS applications like Microsoft Office 365, IBM Connections and others.

  • Supporting all web applications

    The eperi Gateway for Cloud Apps supports standard applications like e.g. Office 365. Because of the innovative learning mode all other applications are supported callable via a Web Browser.
