SAP systems function as enterprise nerve centers, housing and directing the most vital business processes. Accordingly, the data stored in business applications such as SAP ERP, SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW), and SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) is highly sensitive. Any illegal access can result in enormous losses to a business.
Until recently, organizations have made little effort to upgrade the security of SAP systems. Moreover, there is a persistent misconception that SAP security should be based upon access control and segregation of duties (SoD). While these traditional measures are necessary, they (alone) cannot possibly address the full range of attack vectors and vulnerabilities.
All SAP Security Threats Must Be Addressed
The entire spectrum of internal and external threats to SAP systems must be addressed. This includes attacks on SAP routers, the SAP Enterprise Portal, and critical business applications such as SAP ERP, SAP CRM and SAP BW. Even the programs developed in SAP's own language (ABAP) are targets. And, there is now a need to counter the “SAP Hack Tools” that have been released lately, which simplify the ability of cybercriminals to break into SAP systems.
SAP Security Vulnerabilities Continue to Skyrocket
There were roughly 100 documented SAP security weaknesses in 2009. As of 2016, this number had risen to more than 3,500 SAP security notes, in which vulnerabilities in SAP components were identified and addressed.
The ERPScan Security Monitoring Suite for SAP
The ERPScan Security Monitoring Suite for SAP is acknowledged worldwide as the only solution on the market that covers the three crucial aspects of ERP security – identification, analysis, and remediation. This ensures maximum protection against cyberattacks and internal fraud.
Leveraging its "smart dashboards," trend analytics, and vulnerability correlation capabilities, the ERPScan Security Monitoring Suite is specifically designed to continuously monitor the security state of SAP systems. The tool automates the pro-active identification of potential threats while enabling more-effective security management.
The ERPScan Security Monitoring Suite also (a) provides problem resolution and remediation guidance, (b) allows report generation in multiple formats, and (c) easily integrates with third-party IT GRC, ITSM and SIEM solutions.
The tool supports all SAP platforms (ABAP, JAVA, HANA, BOBJ, and Mobile), modules (ERP, CRM, SRM, BI, and HCM), and industry solutions.
Large organizations across various industries, including Oil and Gas, Financial, Retail, Consulting and Energy are successfully utilizing ERPScan.
ERPScan Security Monitoring Suite for SAP: Components
There are three base modules and two add-ons:
Vulnerability Management. Enables security management of SAP servers by identifying software vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Verifies compliance to relevant industry standards.
Source Code Scanning. A Static Application Security Testing (SAST) tool designed specifically for SAP infrastructure. Contains checks for ABAP and JAVA applications. Able to find critical issues and backdoors in custom source code.
Segregation of Duties. Enables the discovery of users that have rights to execute critical actions, including those that can result in a fraud.
Advanced Analysis – A set of features that facilitates security and business intelligence procedures for gathered data. Simplifies risk management for vast landscapes while allowing convenient visual presentations of the results. Also enables vulnerability prioritization, trend analysis and visualizations. Allows users to trace connections between systems.
Remediation – Facilitates vulnerability management procedures. Streamlines workflows. Automatically correct identified issues, provide virtual patches.
