Consulting and managed security services from IBM Security supporting Microsoft Defender, Azure Sentinel, and the SAP Threat Monitoring solution for Sentinel

SAP applications are business-critical, and an SAP security breach can be catastrophic. Yet, protecting SAP applications is uniquely challenging.

SAP systems are growing in complexity as organizations expand them beyond base capabilities, making them vulnerable not only to outside attacks but also insider threats, which means that threats can emerge across multiple modules, making cross-correlation especially important.

It has been traditionally very difficult for security operations (SecOps) teams to effectively monitor SAP due to the unique nature of the SAP ecosystems and the expertise they require.

Microsoft set out to meet this challenge with the SAP threat monitoring solution for Azure Sentinel. The solution provides continuous threat detection and analytics for SAP systems deployed on Azure, in other clouds, or on-premises. Now, SecOps teams can use Azure Sentinel’s visibility, threat detection, and investigation tools to protect their SAP systems and cross-correlate across their entire organization.
