Our goal at SECUDE is to give auditors and administrators the increased visibility and controls necessary to reduce their data security risks, while at the same time simplifying internal audit processes.

Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

SECUDE, an innovative data security provider specializing in SAP security, offers a new solution to help 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. The software is highly configurable and can produce reports by functional area, geographic region, or many other SAP attributes. The Auditor is available at no charge on SECUDE’s website.

One of the most significant cyber security risks in 2013 originated from the difficulty in keeping track of information, according to Kroll Advisory Solutions. “Our goal at SECUDE is to give auditors and administrators the increased visibility and controls necessary to reduce their data security risks, while at the same time simplifying internal audit processes,” said Michael Kummer, President of SECUDE Americas.

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. 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.
