Not tracking sensitive data usage poses a huge risk to any company. Our new auditor is specifically designed to give administrators increased visibility of sensitive data distribution.
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
SECUDE, an innovative data security provider specializing in SAP security, announced today the release of a new solution, which helps auditors and CISO’s identify and track data downloads from NetWeaver-based applications. It provides visibility into what critical business data is being downloaded, who is downloading it, and where. For each download, the solution intelligently classifies the activity into configurable groups, providing a simplified report of sensitive exports by functional area, geographic region, or many other SAP attributes. SECUDE offers this software free of charge.
“Data is more accessible and transferable today than ever before. Not tracking sensitive data usage poses a huge risk to any company,” said Dr. Heiner Kromer, SECUDE’s founder and CEO. “Our new auditor is specifically designed to give administrators increased visibility of sensitive data distribution. The solution simplifies internal audit processes and allows the enterprise to track each and every download via the SAP GUI and understand what critical information has been exported.”
SAP is one of the most widely deployed ERP systems that houses a wide range of data, which is both business critical and highly sensitive. Information about finances, employees, clients, suppliers, and products are just a few examples of sensitive data stored inside SAP applications. This data is exported on a regular basis to generate reports, spreadsheets, documents, PDFs, or other files.
The SECUDE Halocore Data Export Auditor for SAP is an SAP add-on that logs all downloaded data via the SAP GUI (for Windows, Java, or HTML) from NetWeaver ABAP-based SAP applications. Every download of any data via the SAP GUI is audited. This includes exporting spreadsheets, downloading attachments, and saving data from transactions. The audit log records the following attributes of each transaction:
- Who performed the download? (user ID and name)
- What was downloaded? (file name, size, and file type)
- Where from? (transaction code and text, application component, and table name)
- Where to? (path, terminal, and IP address)
Unlike other solutions, Halocore Data Export Auditor for SAP not only records all activity, but also adds intelligent classification. The new solution gives the ability to filter collected entries into configurable groups, e.g. by functional area, geographic region, or transaction type. For example, the audit team can analyze downloading activity around confidential HR information for a specific personnel area or financial reports of a particular legal entity. This significantly reduces the amount of time and effort spent on processing raw data and helps IT administrators identify security risks of possible data leakage.
