Avantra recently addressed the numerous security steps that SAP employs to minimise and prevent security threats against its clients’ ERP systems in a recent blog post, as well as how it can assist businesses in determining which SAP HotNews releases are applicable to their specific mission-critical applications.
The beginning of the blog post defines SAP cyber security and explores common risks to a businesses SAP environment. It then explains which SAP/Avantra tools are available to help businesses improve their S/4HANA or legacy product.
To fully appreciate the breadth of SAP’s online security procedures, Avantra zooms out further to analyze the threats to a company’s ERP system.
Prior to SAP’s digital revolution, cyber assaults on businesses that used SAP ERP were uncommon. However, as SAP systems become increasingly integrated with internet networks and operate in hybrid or cloud settings, organisations started facing increased danger from attackers.
When a cyber attacker breaches SAP, their objective is to either conceal your data (typically for financial benefit) or to steal a company’s important and personal information, such as financial records, health records, social security numbers, or customer data such as usernames and passwords.
Cyber security risks to ERP systems include malware, ransomware, and phishing, with one of the primary entrance ways being a company’s IT infrastructure.
When a security breach occurs, attackers may demand large ransoms from businesses in exchange for regaining access; at other times, cyber attackers want publicity. Additionally, attackers may spy on businesses in order to get access to their financial information and intellectual property.
Customers are strongly advised to review SAP’s cybersecurity documentation and to peruse Avantra’s tools to bolster their SAP security understanding. Avantra provides a booklet, titled “How to Prevent SAP Security Vulnerabilities”, which helps people to take a deeper look at their application’s cybersecurity.
