Jumpstart Your SAP Security with Onapsis Assess Baseline

Business-critical applications are ubiquitous and support the essential functions and processes in global organizations, such as supply chain controls and flows, manufacturing processes, financial transactions, and human capital management. According to data from SAP, over 87% of total global commerce flows through SAP systems, so it’s fair to say that these business-critical applications power the world’s economy. We all know how important these applications are to the business, but securing them, however, continues to present challenges for organizations. Unfortunately, with research showing threat actors increasingly targeting the application layer, the security need has never been more important.
The increasing complexity and size of application environments, heavy customization of individual apps, and growing backlogs of patches have left organizations with a longer list and greater variety of vulnerabilities to identify, understand, and act on. The exposure and risk of exploitation at the application layer is much higher now due to internal digital transformation initiatives, with many critical applications moving to the cloud, connecting to third-parties, or becoming publicly accessible. Externally, organizations face significant risks from growing ransomware attacks on critical systems and the looming threats of cyberwarfare.
This combination of more vulnerabilities, more threats, and more exposure means organizations need strong vulnerability management programs around their business-critical applications. However, traditional vulnerability management tools don’t adequately support these complex ERP environments with the granularity needed to effectively secure them from malicious threat actors. This forces teams to rely on manual efforts, when they are already under-resourced and stretched thin with various other projects. Alternatively, they simply may not have the security expertise in these business-critical SAP applications, for example, to best understand how and where to start. Either way, it inevitably leads to an environment full of unaddressed risk and open attack vectors in the most important assets in the organization.
Now is the time for organizations to re-evaluate how they secure their most critical applications to ensure their businesses keep running. With over a decade of experience in leading the charge in securing the business-critical applications that power the global economy, Onapsis has been on the frontlines of defending organizations from these threats and risks to business-critical applications.
