SAP systems contain numerous transactions that enable applications to be accessed quickly. However, transactions can also be used to access sensitive business processes and confidential information. This is why events relevant to security have to be filtered out of a sea of data and placed in the proper context. This means that in order to evaluate and analyze conspicuous events, intelligent management is required.
SAST SUITE by akquinet AG scores again: The KuppingerCole analysts rates us in Leadership Compass for „Access Control Tools for SAP environments“ as international leader in three categories:
Product, Innovation and Overall Leadership.

The complexity of SAP systems often makes it difficult for administrators to keep track of all their facets. How can an SAP system audit be planned constructively, for example? The SAST SUITE gives you sophisticated analysis methods to identify vulnerabilities quickly, before they can be exploited. The SAST SUITE also offers a wide variety of functions for analyzing and increasing the security of your SAP systems.
Do you have an overview of the RFC interfaces in your SAP systems? The larger the company, the more interfaces there are. Unfortunately, these are often not taken into account when securing IT systems, thereby allowing hackers free access to sensitive data. The name of the game for SAP managers is therefore: Clean up and check.
Did you know that you can distribute licenses easily and automatically via RFC starting from SAST SUITE Release 5.0?
Almost all companies fine-tune their SAP systems with custom developments, but in doing so, they often expose themselves to severe security flaws. In particular, forgotten code that was only needed for a short time or has since been rendered obsolete by SAP’s own enhancements presents a further avenue for attacks.
AKQUINET’s analyses show that up to 90% of ABAP code is no longer used. Frequently written for one-time situations and neglected ever since, such programming offers an ideal back door for hacking and other forms of manipulation.
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 General Data Protection Regulation (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.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018, and hardly a day goes by without some news about it – and that’s the way it should be! As demonstrated by a DSAG member survey of SAP users just a few weeks ago, only just over half of all the companies (53%) have a roadmap. To say nothing of full implementation of the new requirements.
