eperi Data Protection for Custom Apps


Protect Your Sensitive Information in all Your Business Applications

Protecting sensitive information in your business applications is particularly important: they usually store and process sensitive personal information about your customers, employees and partners which has to be especially well protected from unauthorized access.

Internal and external as well as legal data protection and compliance requirements, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), demand that you take effective measures to provide comprehensive security for sensitive personal information in all your business applications. This especially applies to all solutions hosted by third parties or used as Software as a Service.

The Perfect Complement for Maximum Data Protection and Compliance

eperi Data Protection for Custom Apps is the ideal addition to the security and data protection features that SaaS and custom applications offer. It adds a central data protection and compliance platform that gives you sole control over precise and transparent encryption, tokenization and advanced key management. Define which data you want to protect – and reinforce the critical parts of your data protection with minimal effort – for applications on premises, hosted by third parties or used as Software as a Service.

eperi Data Protection for Custom Apps helps you easily address compliance requirements. The solution encrypts sensitive information before it is transmitted to the cloud application. Only authorized individuals in your organization have access to the cryptographic keys needed to encrypt and decrypt sensitive information. All encryption and decryption processes happen outside of the SaaS or custom application – solely under your control. Not even administrators or employees of external data centers can access the data in plain text.

Quickly and Easy Implementation

eperi Data Protection for Custom Apps is simply implemented as a transparent layer between an existing SaaS or application infrastructure and the end user. All clients remain unchanged for users and important application functions can be used as usual, while sensitive information in the SaaS or custom application is encrypted at all times: in Use, in Transit and at Rest.

Centralized Platform

The eperi Gateway is the basis for all eperi Data Protection solutions. With more than 14 years in the market, the eperi Gateway is used by several hundred enterprises and organizations to protect sensitive information within business applications by encrypting and pseudonymizing it – whether in the cloud or on premises.

Preconfigured and ready-to-use templates are used in all eperi Data Protection solutions, for example databases like Oracle and cloud services such as Office 365, Salesforce or ServiceNow. Templates for custom applications can either be created by eperi partners or by customers themselves. This renders the eperi Gateway a centralized encryption solution for all your business and cloud applications.

Template-based Flexibility

The eperi Gateway is based on an innovative template architecture that allows easy configuration of data protection policies for sensitive information and has filed a patent for it.

eperi Gateway templates are mainly XML files describing which data is encrypted or tokenized in the data stream. This way, you have full control over the solution`s impact: decide exactly which data will be encrypted, tokenized or left in plain text, and adapt the template with a few clicks as requirements change.

Templates can include both executable Java code as well as complex workflow definitions in BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) to extend the functionality of the eperi Gateway.

Creating New Templates for Custom Applications

The eperi Application Analyzer is a core component of the eperi Data Protection Solution for Custom Apps. It provides a quick and easy way for you to create your own templates – for example for an internal HR application or a sales partner portal.

The eperi Application Analyzer is integrated into the data stream as a transparent proxy. It recognizes the target application’s input fields and variables automatically and generates recommendations for which information should be protected.

For every recognized field, an encryption, tokenization or pseudonymization method can be specified. You can then fine-tune the security settings to your individual data protection requirements.

The created template file can be imported into the eperi Gateway – from this point on, all sensitive information in your custom application is protected.
