How Linde identifies and tracks security incidents in its SAP systems. (March 9, 2021)

Only the permanent monitoring of all events allows you a reliable protection of your SAP systems. Thereby a real security incident can arise from a combination of several uncritical events.

In this webinar, Linde will provide insights on how to identify, evaluate and document such an incident as quickly as possible so that appropriate countermeasures can be taken. In case of an attack, the reaction capability has a considerable influence on the expected level of damage.

Topics of focus:

  • What is needed for a reliable security monitoring
  • Protection of your SAP systems on platform and authorization level
  • Identification of vulnerabilities in real time
  • Importance of security dashboards to analyze suspicious user activities
  • Best practice case: Linde plc

End-to-end SAP S/4HANA security projects are child’s play – if you have the right tools. (April 20, 2021)

In practice, we often see SAP security projects that only offer a partial solution. Only rarely do such projects involve an end-to-end examination of all layers – from operating system to databases and applications, as well as concepts and policies.

At the same time, an all-encompassing approach to security is essential for projects involving the implementation of or migration to SAP S/4HANA, because the database, user interface, gateway, applications, and authorizations have all grown closer together. As a result, access to important data has become both more complex and more difficult to monitor – especially due to media discontinuity and access options at different layers. This means your framework authorization concept has to combine all these topics prior to implementation and define an end-to-end security strategy.

Ideally, all the security expertise needed for a comprehensive solution like this will come from a single source. This will guarantee perfect interplay between design and management, as well as monitoring, administration, and auditing. And you will also cover all the security areas, in the sense of a comprehensive SIEM system.

In this webinar, we will show you why SAST SOLUTIONS, with our highly specialized SAP experts in combination with our SAST SUITE solution, have just what you are looking for.

Topics of focus:

  • The challenges of successful SAP S/4HANA security projects
  • How to make sure your SAP S/4HANA implementation or migration is a success
  • Benefits of support by SAST SUITE tools
  • Best practice tips

Cut your costs: Deactivate inactive users and reduce your sap license fees. (May 18, 2021)

Every year, SAP audits its customers’ systems and calculates the user-specific license fee based on the collected data. Many companies prefer to leave SAP users active when in doubt, however, out of concern that their day-to-day operations might be disrupted. They fear that a given user ID might still be used technically for background workflows or interface activities.

Use the SAST SUITE to analyze your SAP users, to find out about their actual usage and identify user IDs that are no longer in use. In addition to dialog users, we also focus on background and interface use. This holistic approach makes it possible to derive recommended actions and remove user IDs safely, without any negative side-effects.

It’s a double win for you: with the very little effort required, a fast return on investment is practically certain.

Topics of focus:

  • How to reduce your SAP license fees without affecting your day-to-day business
  • Use the SAST SUITE to identify users that are no longer needed
  • Step-by-step instructions for deactivating obsolete SAP users
  • Best practice tips

Too many SAP S/4HANA authorization projects fail. But it doesn’t have to be that way! How agile project management really works. (June 15, 2021)

Conventional authorization projects are based on a monolithic approach, with a standardized procedure model and a linear sequence of project phases with milestones. In an ideal project, where both the project factors and the final state are known, this approach might go well. But if changes occur during the project, things become more difficult, and the response is often to increase the resources or push the deadline back. Neither is an ideal solution for your project.

In our experience, SAP S/4HANA authorization projects tend to be highly dynamic, due to the lack of a clear overall strategy in the beginning and frequently changing requirements. This is a key reason why such projects fail.

Our SAP experts at SAST SOLUTIONS follow an agile project management approach that is perfectly suited to the complexity and dynamism in SAP S/4HANA projects. Take advantage of our extensive experience and benefit from rapid response times to changing requirements and a continuous optimization process.

Topics of focus:

  • Frequent stumbling blocks in SAP S/4HANA authorization projects
  • Comparison between “classic” and “agile” project management
  • How you can benefit from the SAST project approach
  • Best practice tips
