“We are extremely excited about partnering with the SAP Security experts at Winterhawk Consulting, who immediately understood the value for compliance and confidentiality of our Data Secure software. Data Security is key to any business’s needs. With this partnership clients can know that they have a winning combination of the best products and services in the GRC, risk and compliance field.” said Charles Wheeler, EVP, Global Sales and Services at EPI-USE Labs.

Data Secure, part of the Data Sync Manager suite of products, enables in-place masking or scrambling of sensitive data, in addition to providing an extendable set of masking rules that can be applied to SAP clients. Its simple user interface allows functional teams to define a set of rules, which the basis team can re-use easily whenever they create or refresh a client. Data Secure ensures that copied SAP clients are secured in accordance with global security regulations.

Charles Braswell, Managing Partner for Winterhawk Consulting said, “We are excited about this opportunity. This program will allow us to assist our clients with the EPI-USE Labs Data Sync Manager™ (DSM) product. DSM allows customers to copy SAP systems, SAP clients and SAP data objects as well as incorporates complex algorithms to mask personal and other privacy related data in SAP quality assurance and training environments where the data has traditionally been exposed to inappropriate access.”
