Customer success towards GDPR compliance is already happening for those proactive about protecting data privacy and detecting threats. Just ask Micro Focus customers such as Adriatic Slovenica who are tapping into a broad range Micro Focus Security and IT Governance solutions to address the complexity of privacy compliance with a partner who is with them each step of the way, no matter where they are in their journey. 

The Need

Threat Visibility for Compliance with GDPR may SIEM Impossible sq.jpgAdriatic Slovenica, like many Insurance companies with sensitive data at risk, require audit visibility to better understand an ever-evolving threat landscape. They rely upon industry-proven and battle-hardened ArcSight to lead the way, tracking access to data. And while their needs at this point in their GDPR journey may be unique, each company will eventually follow a similar roadmap for understanding risk posture, proactively protecting data and meeting routine audits—and Micro Focus can help, whether just starting out or reaching that next level of maturity for insights and comprehensive data protection. 

Where are you at today and are you reducing risk?

Whether just discovering and classifying your sensitive data with products such as Structured Data Manager, actively protecting critical data with Voltage encryption, hardening apps with Fortify, or using the power of identity to control access with Identity & Access Management solutions, Micro Focus has got your back. Arguably no other IT security vendor can offer as robust of a hand-off when implementing a GDPR data protection strategy, when given the breadth and depth of security and governance solutions. 

“We recognized that this was not just about improving security, but about introducing structure and processes to gain full visibility of the environment.” – SRC, Micro Focus Partner

 Adriatic Slovenica may be at a specific phase in their journey, but ultimately it’s a consistent set of milestones on the road to GDPR compliance. With PwC, Micro Focus offers technology portfolio mapping guidance, whether just starting out or looking to the next step of evolution. Decades of experience and engineering designed into products enable a wide range of security and privacy use cases, provides perspective that isn’t easily replicated, and offer an integrated strategy—avoiding the dead ends from vendors that can only offer single-point solutions with limited, discrete capabilities. Where are you on your journey? Do you need an integrated approach to address the complexities of your IT strategy?

For example, did you know Voltage data-centric encryption technologies such as format-preserving encryption integrate with ArcSight to protect sensitive data used by the ArcSight SIEM? By not only protecting your customer data and your corporate IP, but extending to protect data ingested into analytics, Micro Focus can reduce exposure to insiders with privileged access to sensitive data! It’s this level of layered security approach that Micro focus is uniquely in a position to offer when companies such as Adriatic Slovenica look to lower risk, audit protection, and expect greater value from a stronger-together product portfolio.
