Reduce complexity the enemy of security

Complexity is one enemy of enterprise security. Attackers like intransparent architectures, since they can hide their footsteps with ease. With the present release, we started an initiative that will simplify the security process for SAP, eliminate known barriers, and allow a detailed insight.

Summary

On November  5th, 2020 a new release of SecurityBridge was made available for our subscribers.  The release (version 5.78.3)  contains major improvements. Some of the highlights contained in the release are described on this site. Customers can download the new release from our online support portal. 

Highlight

Patch Management

Find relevant patches for your instances and apply them in time

SecurityBridge Platform received a new module “Patch Management” supporting our customers to implement security-relevant patches in time.  The module supports both ABAP and J2EE instances. 

The new module smoothly integrates with the Security Advisory portal, available via abex.io/advisory. Know whether your system contains a vulnerability that can be patched to prevent incidents that could have been avoided.

Highlight

Risk Accepetance

Inline risk tracking and acceptance management

Although we wish for all our customers that they can eliminate the potential risks arising from their business-critical systems, it is safe to assume that some need to be accepted. A brand new risk approval process has been introduced to SecurityBridge Vulnerability Management. Governance included, that helps you to track and document any acceptance. Using the process, allows customers to detect further deviations from the accepted state. 

Highlight

Security Advisory

The security advisory portal received a new design

With thousands of visitors every month, our Security Advisory Page receives much attention. The portal provides you a convenient view of available patches for your installed base. 

The information available is continuously kept up to date to reflect the constant need for knowledge concerning available patches for known vulnerabilities.

Highlight

SAP NetWeaver Java

A new agent for Java based SAP instances exists

Connecting Java agents to SecurityBridge has been simplified even further. Security and audit log data sources stored in files is now automatically streamed into your SecurityBridge controller. This avoids the use of file moving scripts or LogForwarders.

Highlight

Incident & Response

IT Service Management integrations

Incident and Response

The SecurityBridge Incident & Response Management, used by your SAP Basis-, Security- and Authorization teams now allows integration with your established ITSM platform. BADI’s are available to easily connect to Jira, ServiceNow, Solution Manager, and others.
