In the past twelve months, the specialist for security and compliance in the SAP environment has gained 15 new partners throughout Europe who use its software platform in their customer projects.

Ingolstadt, October 8, 2021 – SAP security provider SecurityBridge is taking off and is currently focusing its growth strategy on European expansion. New partners include companies such as NTT Data, Aglea, PASáPAS, Agentil Group and TechEdge Spain. Only recently, the manufacturer of the SAP cybersecurity platform of the same name concluded a partnership with Fortinet, the world’s leading provider of automated cybersecurity solutions based in Sunnyvale, California. Together, the two companies offer an integrated solution to combat vulnerabilities within SAP landscapes.

Many SAP user companies are currently busy integrating cloud and non-SAP applications. This increases complexity; IT landscapes become even more complex due to new interfaces and risks increase significantly. This is where SecurityBridge offers security managers an open and scalable architecture. The SAP-integrated security solution keeps pace with the growing attack surface and provides a high level of protection against internal and external attacks.

In Spain, SecurityBridge will be represented by the digital transformation consultancy Techedge Spain. A strategic alliance has been concluded in Italy with the SAP security service provider Aglea (head office in Milan). In Switzerland, the SAP IT security specialist AGENTIL Group, Geneva, will in future offer an integrated SAP security platform and services based on SecurityBridge technology. The new strategic partner in France is the regional value-added reseller PASàPAS. Further partnerships have been concluded in the rest of Europe.

Christoph Nagy, CEO of SecurityBridge: “The combination of our SecurityBridge platform with the services of expert partners creates a broad spectrum of service possibilities that SAP customers can benefit from.”

SecurityBridge and Fortinet close gap between SAP and network security

SAP systems process 77 percent of global transactional revenue and form the digital backbone of an enterprise. IT security relies on a multi-layered security structure built like onion layers. However, the lines of defense often exist in isolation and are not interconnected. In their partnership, SecurityBridge and Fortinet are addressing this problem and initiating a paradigm shift. By integrating SecurityBridge with the Fortinet Security Fabric, the gap between SAP and network security is closed. For more information, visit our SAP Attack Detection page

In SAP’s patch round of February 2022, an SAP Security Note was released with a CVSS score of 10/10 named, “Request smuggling and request concatenation in SAP NetWeaver, SAP Content Server and SAP Web Dispatcher”. This particular type of vulnerability is not common in SAP systems and therefore interesting to look at. As patching the SAP kernel executables is often not done promptly, we can expect this vulnerability present in the customer’s systems for quite some time.
