Automated SAP Security Management and Monitoring

smarterSec SAP Security Platform

smarterSec has been developed by some of the most expert SAP security professionals in the business to provide the deepest of insights, so your team can keep your systems as protected as possible. smarterSec SAP security software will highlight, and then automatically monitor all known SAP vulnerabilities, enabling teams to maintain the highest SAP security.

SAP environments have hundreds, if not thousands of vulnerabilities, many critical and many unknown to all but a few SAP security experts.

According to the IBM 2023 Cost of a Data Breach Report, Australian companies' average data breach cost is around $4 million. The 2023 InsideSAP SAP Cyber Security Threats to SAP Systems Benchmark Report states that 30% of SAP customers surveyed suffered a production system-impacting breach in the previous 12 months.

The high level of complexity, integrations and the different technologies present the responsible parties with significant challenges regarding securing their SAP systems and complying with internal and external regulations. Attackers often exploit the “human factor” as the supposed weakest link in the security chain to obtain sensitive data. It is therefore not surprising that 70% of all attacks occur from “inside” the company, i.e., from within its network. This makes it even more important to proactively prepare for new attacks.

Where awareness and training fail, technical protection mechanisms like smarterSec make the difference.

“We use smarterSec to analyze and evaluate the monthly SAP security patches. The analyses of the individual patches and the implementation or rework have always cost us a lot of time and effort in the past. We are therefore very happy to have smarterSec as a trustworthy, competent partner at our side, who monitors and ensures the security of our products and our SAP HCM system.”

"You cannot just implement a central SAP component like SAP Cloud Connector and keep it at a low maintenance level. It is essential that you integrate SAP Cloud Connector in your software lifecycle management and keep high attention like it would be your main SAP ERP system, especially when it comes to security"
