SecurityBridge’s SAP Platform Helps Schneider Electric Secure Their Critical SAP Applications And Integrate With SIEM

Schneider Electric SAP

Ingolstadt, Germany, July 13, 2022 SAP security provider SecurityBridge—now operating in the U.S.—today announced Schneider Electric has selected the company’s SAP Security platform. SecurityBridge’s platform provides Schneider Electric with an advanced level of SAP visibility that enables the company’s IT teams to proactively manage potential risks arising from applications and custom code.

SecurityBridge’s SAP platform provides holistic insight into SAP’s complexity with real-time threat monitoring. This SAP security approach differs from traditional solutions by providing a preventative, behavioral-based approach for:

  • Detecting Anomalies
  • Identifying Security Risks
  • Mitigating Risks to Business Operations
  • Ensuring Compliance with Regulatory Mandates
  • Creating an Inclusive Cybersecurity Posture

“SecurityBridge helped us automate our SAP application monitoring and vulnerability by easily integrating with our SIEM platform. By doing this, we boosted security, lowered costs, and allowed our security team to focus on remediation,” said Thierry Eyraud, Digital Risk Leader, Schneider Electric.

SecurityBridge’s continuous SAP security management process accelerates and prioritizes risk management with intelligence-driven and accelerated remediation processes through a two-step approach that:

  1. Identifies cybersecurity tools targeting the SAP application layer and custom code while integrating the solution with the SIEM platform 
  2. Evaluates solutions for robustness while covering forensics, internal and external threats, Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and ease of integration and maintenance. 

The SAP platform also provides Schneider Electric with a single-pane-of-glass on the SAP security posture that covers multiple geographical regions with their local SAP installations. In addition, high-privileged access roles were reduced to a minimum, and the company’s security department received real-time policy break alerts.

“SecurityBridge is a true partner, and we count on this platform to alert us on critical vulnerabilities while automating SAP risk management practices,” said Tony Parrillo, Global Head of Cybersecurity, Schneider Electric. “Our teams now communicate more effectively; SecurityBridge has become essential to our overall cybersecurity strategy.”

“Without complete visibility into the system and a continued patching process, SAP can be particularly vulnerable to internal and external cybersecurity threats,” said Christoph Nagy, CEO, SecurityBridge. “We are proud to help Schneider Electric enhance the resiliency and stability of their business operations.”

SAP Security Services
SAP Cybersecurity- Security News
Many companies have recognized the need for SAP cybersecurity, but many have also realized that they cannot accomplish this alone. There are many reasons for this. It can be due to the internal teams' workload or due to the employee's level of knowledge. However, there is a solution that neither burdens your internal staff nor demands additional knowledge. A specialized managed SAP Security Service allows you to harden mission-critical systems, detect and promptly counteract non-compliance, and implement monitoring with accurate anomaly detection.
Patch Management
SAP security provider SecurityBridge—now operating in the U.S.—today announced the full integration of its SAP Security Platform with the Microsoft Sentinel cloud-native Security Information and Event Manager (SIEM) platform and its membership to MISA. SecurityBridge was nominated to MISA because of the integration of its SAP Controller to the Microsoft Sentinel dashboard. SecurityBridge is a Smart Data Adapter that significantly simplifies security monitoring of critical and highly specific business applications.
