As part of these services, at Hicron we offer our Clients a guarantee of regular system maintenance and improvement, also with a focus on security audits. We conduct thorough examinations to identify any gaps in security or authorizations. If the form, quality, or quantity of the security measures is found to be lacking, Hicron’s SAP Security team will offer recommendations of appropriate solutions or trusted partners. Our services extend not only to the latest SAP S/4HANA software but also ECC, including both its cloud and on-premise versions.

Why is the security of SAP systems so important?

For a long time, the security of SAP systems often received insufficient attention, even in companies which generally exercise appropriate diligence to protect their overall infrastructure. In most cases, this was not due to deliberate neglect but rather to budget cuts at the expense of security unregulated by legal standards. However, the security of these systems, which often store and process key business data, is becoming increasingly important to not only their manufacturers but also their users. Adhering to proper procedures, implementing application extensions, and conducting maintenance activities ensure the continued efficiency and functionality of the software, preventing the leakage or even theft of critical data.

In an era of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, organizations need to consider potential internal threats as carefully as external ones. The geopolitical situation has spurred companies to take extra precautions. Security challenges are a common concern for both small businesses and multinational organizations; therefore, SAP is actively working to address customer expectations in this domain.
