SAP security provider SecurityBridge—now operating in the U.S.— announced its new Patch Management function for its SAP Security Platform. SecurityBridge Patch Management is a best-in-class SAP security feature that provides instant, actionable insight into which SAP security patches are missing—without the hassle of filtering through false positives to identify applicable patches needed. With this latest enhancement, SecurityBridge customers can automate SAP patch management procedures down to a single click.
SAP’s Security Patch Day takes place every second Tuesday of the month to release security updates to customers. However, after these security holes are made public, hackers use scanners to find vulnerable systems and develop exploitation toolkits. Organizations that lack the staff to sift through the new patches, and identify the relevant ones for their systems, often delay the time-consuming task. The SecurityBridge Patch Management feature automates identifying only the applicable SAP security patches, rates them by severity, and enables users with one-click installation. In addition, SAP users will automatically receive notifications on high-severity vulnerabilities so they may quickly secure their mission-critical systems.
“Many companies don’t have the amount of SAP personnel to prioritize patch management,” said Christoph Nagy, CEO, SecurityBridge. “Our new one-click installation for SecurityBridge Patch Management removes the manual task of identifying and installing security patches by automatically highlighting missing security patches with great accuracy for instant integration. In addition, the SecurityBridge Platform provides a holistic all-in-one approach that promises to provide the best SAP security capabilities at a very attractive subscription model.”
Additional features include:
~Seamless integration with Security & Compliance Management.
~Query tools from an SAP Security Dashboard to identify technical components and versions installed.
~360° View: System Patches vs. Patch Systems.
~Automatic location of all SAP systems expecting a specific patch, i.e., for ICMAD.
~Access to Security Advisories that contain additional information describing existing “workarounds,” recommendations for implementation timing, and side effects that need addressing during implementation.
The Patch Management module is a core component of the SecurityBridge SAP Platform and is immediately available and active after installation, and the entire platform installs in a few hours. The basis for all SecurityBridge components is the homogeneous configuration, which enables users to orchestrate complex system landscapes in a simplified and manageable way.
