What has changed in the past ten years and what can we expect in the next ten? How will they affect the requirements profile of SAP Basis experts and how can they adapt to them?
Why should we even have an individual SAP Security Check performed? Your SAP authorisation concept is designed to ensure the security and protection of data against unauthorised access and abuse. The technical complexity of SAP systems and the ongoing adaptations of business processes often lead to unknown security vulnerabilities. In addition, the increasing digital networking with business partners offers further attack points on your SAP system. SAP Security Check gives you an overview of the security situation of your SAP systems. This will identify potential risks that could jeopardise the safe operation of your IT landscape. Your starting situation The ongoing changes in your IT systems lead to unrecognised security vulnerabilities and your auditors will regularly report to you in the final report on abuses in the authorisation concept. The legal requirements (e.g. EU guidelines) to secure your business processes and IT systems have not yet been implemented and the increasing networking with business partners presents new challenges to your security system. The security-related system settings and permissions settings applied to your SAPS systems are poorly documented, which in many cases causes the system settings to allow extensive critical access unchecked. Critical SAP permissions, profiles, and roles identify permissions that allow critical operations to be performed in terms of security or from a legal or business perspective are called "critical permissions" by SAP. The granting of critical allowances must therefore generally be carried out with particular care and should therefore be planned in advance. Technical and organisational measures and processes must then ensure that the desired level of safety is implemented.
In the initial screen, you can first use the global settings to specify whether changes should be allowed in general. Furthermore, you can define specifically for the software components and namespaces of the Repository objects whether they can be changed at all, or whether changeability should be restricted.
More security with less effort Internal employees often do not have the comprehensive know-how to know all relevant security risks. However, our security experts specialise in this. We use a standardised approach to determine your current security situation. Based on the analysis results, we show you where the security of your SAP systems can be improved and show you possible solutions. Focus your internal resources on your core business, while our experts will perform a customised audit on your SAP system to determine your security status. SAP Security Check - Our standardised approach (4-step model) Briefing: You register an interest in SAP Security Check. A consultant will contact you and discuss the details of the exam. They have the opportunity to clarify individual issues and to determine the focus of the security check. Data extraction: To ensure that your system is not affected by our audit, we export the relevant data manually or with the help of a data export tool. Analysis: Our security experts analyse the data, evaluate the results and prepare your report. Results: We will discuss the results of SAP Security Check with you. If safety deficiencies have been discovered, we will give recommendations for action on how to correct them. Optionally, you can ask our experts to solve your security risks in the short term. Your security risks become transparent Rapid assessment of your current SAP security status Detailed analysis and documentation Simple traffic light system enables overview of the results You can assess and prioritise the potential for danger for your company for every risk Know-how Transfer and recommendations for action You can easily communicate internally with the transparent and easily understandable final report You can close the relevant security gaps with our measures Optional: Eliminating security deficiencies Experts Our standardised approach enables us to assess the security of your SAP systems systematically and quickly. You do not need to build up authorisation expertise.
The SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of the programmes in the SAP system. It acts as an operating system for R/3 and subsequent releases including S/4HANA. Each operating system provides an environment in which programmes can run, such as MS Office on Microsoft Windows. Likewise, the SAP base system with the NetWeaver and HANA platform offers an environment in which the SAP programmes can run. In this context, the NetWeaver platform itself relies on server operating systems such as Windows and Linux.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.
The extended memory size is determined by the values of em/initial_size_MB and em/global_area_MB.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
In addition, depending on the configuration, a stored workflow can be initiated as an approval process, or pre-defined controllers will be notified by email to verify activities.
