Addressing GDPR in Your OpenEdge Environment
Addressing certain GDPR requirements relies on the use of current technology. Progress OpenEdge provides you with opportunities to upgrade technology that is the foundation of your application – and perhaps your business.
Manage the Data
Companies must take responsibility for the proper care of personal data they collect, process and/or store. We understand the complexity of this undertaking and offer the OpenEdge RDBMS Advanced Enterprise Edition specifically designed to help companies effectively manage vast amounts of data. It includes, but is not limited to:
Identify, track and save personal data changes within the RDBMS and support accurate data source synchronization across the business
Ensure the separation of your customers’ personal data within the cloud, while reducing development and deployment costs when delivering SaaS applications
Near real-time continuous duplication for fast data recovery, minimizing the impact of unexpected outages and supporting a high-availability strategy
Privacy by Design, Privacy by Default
Defining the Processes
OpenEdge BPM allows you to build models that specify how work gets done, by whom and when. New regulatory requirements may create the need for companies to easily and quickly assess, modify, and redeploy these workflows processes to the runtime environment. Being able to do so with little to no coding changes and then view dashboards to measure application performance saves time, decreases development effort, and lowers overall costs.
Automating the Rules
Help your organization effectively adhere to changing data privacy regulations by putting the power in the citizen developers’ hands, and taking the pressure off of IT. Progress Corticon manages complex rules, including business rules designed to determine when it is necessary to delete personal data from your database when there is no longer a legitimate business reason to collect, process and/or store such data.
The Corticon rule integrity feature and onboard diagnostics allows you to automate and test new rules to pinpoint conflicts before they become headaches as well as ensure accurate results—before potentially incurring expensive fines.
Progress OpenEdge 11.7 provides security updates to the entire platform by supporting the latest versions of SSL/TLS protocols. These protocols aim to secure data while it passes between different application components. For more information, read SSL/TLS Communication in Progress OpenEdge.
Data Access: Authentication & Authorization
Our latest release, Progress OpenEdge 11.7 includes enhancements to help you secure personal data that is collected, processed and/or stored based on current industry-standards helping you to minimize vulnerabilities that are amplified by legacy technology.
OpenEdge Authentication Gateway is a key component of a centralized authentication and authorization service for database access, providing trusted identity management by ensuring only the right people get the right access to the appropriate information, hardening the security of your OpenEdge application environment.
