Hubwoo Adds Transparent Data Encryption
Hubwoo, a provider of comprehensive spend management and business process automation solutions, has added encryption capabilities to its Source-to-Pay solutions in the cloud.
In an ongoing effort to help companies move to the cloud, Hubwoo now provides a data encryption option to ensure that its customers can comply with strict data security requirements. This option allows more companies to move to the cloud, even those with the strictest of data security protocols, such as financial institutions.
Hubwoo's Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) capability takes place at the database level, ensuring the protection of customer data against access from unauthorized users, safeguarding competitive information such as source of supply, award decisions, volume and unit price information. Hubwoo provides TDE column encryption which enables the user to encrypt sensitive data stored in select table columns, as well as TDE tablespace encryption which means the user can encrypt all data stored in a tablespace. Both TDE column encryption and TDE tablespace encryption use a two-tiered, key-based architecture.
TDE column encryption is used to protect confidential data, such as credit card and social security numbers, stored in table columns. TDE column encryption uses the two-tiered, key-based architecture to transparently encrypt and decrypt sensitive table columns. The TDE master encryption key is stored in an external security module, this master encryption key is used to encrypt the table key, which in turn is used to encrypt and decrypt data in the table column.
TDE tablespace encryption enables users to encrypt an entire tablespace. All objects created in the encrypted tablespace are automatically encrypted.
"We are pleased to introduce TDE (Transparent Data Encryption) to our customers. Hubwoo is one of the few cloud-based enterprise software companies which bring such a capability to the market," said Gandhi Gopinath, chief technology officer at Hubwoo, in a statement. "The solution has been introduced after extensive performance and regression testing to ensure that customers benefit from data security while not compromising on functionality. In addition, Hubwoo adheres to best-in-class security policies that supplement its solution capabilities."
