SAP Cloud Security

As the world becomes a more digitalized one, it is essential that all operations, systems, and events hosted in the cloud are safely guarded. This is especially important for systems such as SAP systems that host business-critical information in the cloud.

What is SAP Cloud Security?

SAP cloud security refers to the measures, techniques, and systems put in place to protect SAP Systems hosted in the cloud. To achieve this, there are a variety of safety controls, tools, encryptions, incident responses, and more that can aid in their protection. Moreover, the goal of having an SAP cloud security solution or strategy is to ensure your cloud systems are protected against, cyber threats, hackers, data breaches, etc.

There are many ways to protect SAP systems hosted in the cloud. One of the many ways to secure them is through managed security services such as the SecurityBridge Identity Protection solution, the SecurityBridge SAP Vulnerability Management solution, or the SecurityBridge Threat Monitoring solution. Solutions like these, ensure your systems are protected by monitoring and reporting exploits 24/7, automating compliance and security, and by immediately identifying vulnerabilities for your cloud SAP systems.

Every organization constantly faces the challenge of minimizing the attack surface that an adversary could use to perform malicious operations. To do this, administrators must install the deployed components and understand them in detail to identify risks and proactively mitigate or prevent those. Today we are looking at what is necessary to protect the SAP Cloud Connector.

How to achieve SAP Cloud Security?

The road to achieve SAP Cloud Security requires a multi-layered approach of processes, systems, and strategy. Here are some easy steps you can take to start protecting your SAP cloud systems:

 

  1. Implement Identity and Access Management: Create role-based access controls or multi-factor authentication to ensure all users that are within the system are supposed to be there.
  2. Data encryption: If it is sensitive, encrypt the data to protect it from unauthorized access.
  3. Create network security controls like firewalls, threat and intrusion detection, and other security technologies.
  4. Implement security monitoring and incident response processes to detect and respond fast to security incidents.
  5. Patch and update your systems regularly with the latest security updates and patches.
  6. Make sure you are staying compliant with regulatory requirements like SOC II, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, and more.

 

These are just some of the steps you can take to achieve SAP cloud security. Combining these steps with a managed security solution like SecurityBridge, will ensure that your SAP cloud security posture is a an optimal stage. By using a managed service provider like SecurityBridge, you can ensure your SAP cloud-based environments are secure and compliant with the latest security standards and best practices.
