SAP systems require special attention when it comes to their security and this is no longer news to anyone. More often than not, the ERP systems supplied from Walldorf in Baden-Württemberg store some of the most crucial and sensitive company data. That said, what is the best approach to achieving the optimum level of security? A security audit would fit the bill!
The Gateway is a central communication component of an SAP system. As such, it is an attractive target for hacker attacks – and should receive corresponding protections. If the Gateway protections fall short, hacking it becomes child’s play. Despite this, system interfaces are often left out when securing IT systems. Should a cyberattack occur, this will give the perpetrators direct access to your sensitive SAP systems.
Analyze the RFC interfaces of your SAP Systems.
SAP interfaces are often not considered when SAP systems are protected. Therefore, they remain unprotected and provide attractive targets for attackers.
Experience from numerous SAP security audits and penetration tests for SAP systems shows repeatedly that, in almost every SAP system checked, unprotected interfaces exist that could allow attackers direct access to your SAP Systems.
