It’s probably too early to sum up the state of SAP security in 2018. Then again, fall is the season for events such as the DSAG Annual Congress (German SAP User Group), which just ended in Leipzig. It is at conferences and trade fairs like this that you get a chance to find out exactly what is on the minds of SAP customers.

The IT compliance field poses a major challenge for SAP customers, and in particular, with regard to the compliance of SAP users. It is no coincidence that roles and authorization issues are what many SAP customers find most frustrating.
Companies find themselves challenged again and again by the immense effort required to keep employee SAP authorizations up to date during day to day business. Our new SAST SUITE module, Self-Adjusting Authorizations, takes an intelligent approach to solving the most frequent problems: It removes unused transactions automatically, increasing both compliance security and protection against data misuse, in turn reducing administrative effort.
Security policies allow companies to ensure compliance with data integrity, secrecy, availability and authenticity. Such policies are constantly being updated and scaled to keep up with changes to ongoing operations. When additional policies are added in compliance with guidelines – for example a software update or a DSAG audit, the policy must be compared. To date, this has required checks by hand. Since the Release 5.0 SAST SUITE offers solution, providing automatic identification and adoption of deltas where policies differ.
Since the new General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is fully effective, companies must now face new challenges with respect to protecting personal data.
To meet the guidelines under the GDPR, we can help with two modules of SAST SUITE in particular: SAST HCM Read Access Monitoring and SAST Superuser Management.
After upgrading to a new SAP release, customers often face the challenge of using the SAP transaction SU25 to bring their authorizations up to speed, as well.
