Predict SAP Attacks – Assess SAP systems

Why do you need an automated SAP Scanning solution?

Timely prediction of cyberattacks is the key to Security. The reliability of protection mechanisms and the speed of responding to security incidents make a world of difference when it comes to protecting your system. The best way to secure your precious business-critical data is to continuously analyze existing vulnerabilities that can be used to break in.

Analysts from Gartner, IDC, KuppingerCole, Qoucirca, and other firms agree on the significance of ERP security as well as on the lack of this functionality (e.g., security scanners, SIEM, and breach detection mechanisms) in traditional solutions.

In-depth assessments of databases and applications, such as ERP systems (for example, SAP or Oracle), specially, are not widely supported in traditional VA solutions, which focus on devices. Gartner’s Market Guide for Vulnerability Assessment 2014.

The EAS-SEC SAP Cybersecurity framework distinguishes the following areas that have vital importance for predicting cyberattacks:

  • Asset Management
  • Vulnerability Management
  • Risk Management
  • Secure Development
  • Governance and Business Environment

Combining most of the listed areas, SAP Security Assessment plays the major part in predicting SAP attacks. Since these are complex systems to operate, and there is an array of different installation types, the need for security experts specialized in different areas is urgent. Even an application server may be based on either ABAP, J2EE, HANA or other platforms, not to mention that there are more than 50 particular applications and modules, which turns the manual process into a real challenge. Such an in-depth assessment of an SAP landscape is a laborious and time-consuming process as there may be 10,000+ vulnerabilities and misconfigurations of user access control in a single system.

What will you get from Prediction Module?

Prediction Module of ERPScan Smart Cybersecurity Platform for SAP can help to inventory your SAP landscape, determine the probability of security drawbacks, and continuously monitor all the arising issues within SAP and security-relevant changes.

SAP security is a combination of 3 areas: Platform Security, Сustomization Protection, and Segregation of Duties. Each area requires unique expertise. Our solution covers all these areas and performs 10,000+ security checks.

Platform Security module is divided into the following categories:

  • Asset management
  • Blackbox vulnerability analysis
  • Misconfigurations
  • Insecure connections
  • Weak passwords

Customization Protection detects 100+ different code issues:

  • Code injections
  • Missing authorizations
  • Backdoors
  • Obsolete statements
  • Data leakage

Segregation of Duties detects the following security issues:

  • Critical privileges
  • SoD conflicts
  • Multi-dimension SoD conflicts
  • SoD conflicts with custom SoD rules
  • SoD conflicts with SOX compliance
