Logpoint’s new Vulnerability Monitoring Analyzer helps organizations automate and simplify vulnerability management in SAP systems.
Organizations can get a complete overview and ease prioritization of security-critical patches.
COPENHAGEN, November 7, 2023 – Logpoint is announcing the release of the Vulnerability Monitoring Analyzer, bringing new capabilities to its Business-Critical Security (BCS) solutions by enabling organizations to automate the assessment of SAP patches and ease how these are prioritized. As SAP patching is carried out manually, automating the patch review process will bolster the protection of SAP systems and help safeguard against cybercriminals looking to exploit systems lacking critical security updates.
SAP releases security patches once a month to protect its users against vulnerabilities continually. Understanding the technical changes and evaluating the relevancy of the security patches is typically conducted manually. Statistics show that a typical SAP customer needs more than 100 days on average to install critical security corrections, potentially exposing the business during that time.
“SAP patches are crucial for maintaining the security, stability, and performance of the SAP software products as well as keeping your organization’s business processes running smoothly,” says Sükrü Ilker Birakoglu, Senior Director at Logpoint. “Evaluating the patches’ relevancy is a lengthy, tedious, and time-consuming process, resulting in a reactive approach to the review process. This is problematic as cyberattackers specifically target the SAP systems that have not yet received the latest security updates.”
The Vulnerability Monitoring Analyzer automatically reads the technical content of released patches and matches its release version with the system’s release version throughout thousands of repositories. The solution also provides a comprehensive overview of components and their patch levels, component versions of Kernel, Database, Library, etc., and the SAP GUI version.
“With the Vulnerability Monitoring Analsyzer, we aim to help SAP basis managers and administrators and SAP security consultants enhance efficiency, amplify the security posture, and improve the uptime of their most valuable applications by automating SAP patch monitoring and configuration,” says Sükrü Ilker Birakoglu. “We provide actionable insights to help customers work effectively on remediating the most critical issues faster.”
