VIRTUAL FORGE ANNOUNCES UPDATES TO ITS VIRTUAL FORGE SECURITY CLOUD-BASED SAP SECURITY AND QUALITY OFFERING
Now Scans Third-Party Apps Via TransportProfiler Solution
HEIDELBERG, Germany (June 12, 2018) – Virtual Forge, the leading provider of cyber security solutions for SAP®, today unveiled updates to its Virtual Forge Security Cloud, a leading cloud-based security and quality check of SAP objects that now includes third-party application scanning through its TransportProfiler solution.
The Virtual Forge Security Cloud is a cross-product of Virtual Forge and offers selective sub functionalities of its on-premise products and services, including CodeProfiler and SystemProfiler. The Virtual Forge Security Cloud offers the easiest and fastest way to determine the risk degree of SAP-based applications and change requests. What’s more, the cloud-based security solution is the most effective form of SAP firewall since dangerous objects do not even have to enter the SAP landscape to identify possible danger.
Virtual Forge TransportProfiler checks transports for security, completeness and consistency, and any changes in critical data. This makes it possible to identify flawed transports in advance, which in turn helps prevent system downtime, damage to target systems, and the costs and effort required for correcting errors.
Now offered in a cloud-based solution through Virtual Forge Security Cloud, TransportProfiler analyzes and evaluates the changes affected by a transport before it is imported into an SAP system. Its flexible approach to assessing outcomes is designed to account for the individual risks modifications pose to the security and stability of the system in question. This is how Virtual Forge TransportProfiler's detailed analysis and evaluation of individual changes avert negative consequences in target systems.
Only 3% of North American users said1 they scan their SAP code daily for security and stability checks, and the majority (32%) said they only check “a few times each month”. Most of these companies are concerned with keeping vendor/partner files secure (33%); Management planning of SAP functions (31%); and keeping their customer database secure (28%).
“Protecting SAP systems in the cloud has never been more important, especially now that millions of companies are operating in the cloud with critical internal, vendor and customer data held virtually,” said Thomas Kastner, Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer at Virtual Forge GmbH. “Our additions to Virtual Forge Security Cloud, particularly with the ability to scan third-party applications, will greatly enhance the security and stability of our clients’ systems, particularly as they move files and information from dev to production.”
