WALLIX SIMPLIFIES GDPR COMPLIANCE WITH ITS DATA ENCRYPTION PLATFORM, DATAPEPS


WALLIX Group, a software company providing cyber security and governance solutions for information systems access, has launched DataPeps, a new E2EE[1] encryption platform for data protection.

DataPeps is an “as a service” end-to-end encryption solution[2] that developers can easily and seamlessly integrate in all of their applications and infrastructures. DataPeps not only protects data from cyber attacks, it also ensures that applications comply with the future European General Data Protection Regulation, the GDPR. Down the line, DataPeps will enable users to widen the scope of encryption and protect data in the different forms in which it is used (file sharing, e-mails, social networks and online platforms, connected objects and smart home devices).

A simple and disruptive offer

At a time when cyber security is becoming crucial and data protection is a legal obligation, very few applications and communications tools are genuinely secure. The benefits of using data encryption are widely known but, for the most part, its implementation is incomplete and its actual use by developers remains limited due to a lack of expertise in cryptography. Generally speaking, it would appear that only the transfer of data is secure, which is why DataPeps offers end-to-end encryption to protect data stored on infrastructures or Cloud solutions.

Simplified GDPR compliance

Thanks to DataPeps, compliance with new European data protection regulations is simplified. User data is protected during transfer and storage and, even if breaches are successful, data is not visible to attackers. It is a solution that avoids any form of data leaks, whether intentional or not. Beyond the prevention of attacks, the GDPR also extends to respect for personal data, and notably the right of application users to manage their own personal information (view and delete information, etc.). DataPeps offers a unique portal that ensures editors are able to comply with the GDPR without the need for further development.

Accounts can already be created for developers and DevOps on the https://DataPeps.com platform which also features all of the documentation[3] needed to easily integrate DataPeps into all applications.

Henri Binsztok, Chief Innovation Officer in charge of the DataPeps offer, said: “With DataPeps, editors can secure their infrastructures and comply with regulations by simply integrating a few lines of code. The technology is based on a state-of-the-art method of encryption, elliptic encryption, which preserves data in the event of an attack on a server infrastructure and eliminates the risk of internal threats. DataPeps provides proven security features such as the formal verification of data integrity and authentication.

Commenting on the new offer in cyber security from WALLIX, Jean-Noël de Galzain, Chairman of WALLIX, said: “The DataPeps offer adds the finishing touches to the Group's Bastion technology and takes data security to a new level. Born out of the acquisition in 2016 of the assets and technology of MLstate, DataPeps is a disruptive and innovative product that protects both content and the exchange of data between users, whatever the equipment and whatever the context. It makes high-level encryption accessible to all solution and application developers.”
