SAP Code Security

Enterprise security is a multidimensional, evolving challenge across the
technology stack. smartShift provides the only solution on the market for
automated security hardening for SAP-based business applications.

ABAP Code Security Implementation Challenges

Security Audits

  • Lack of visibility of security issues limits your ability to pass compliance audits
  • Manual fixes are not well documented and traceable

Manual Fixes

  • Relying on people to find and fix vulnerabilities is risky
  • Manual fixes are error prone
  • Human capital is expensive

Business Disruption

  • Security fixes may unintentionally restrict user access to needed functions
  • Lack of a standard methodology to minimize disruption

Unused Code

  • Old/obsolete custom code is likely to have security flaws
  • 40-60% of custom code in an SAP system may be unused
  • Safely removing unused code is the best security measure and also reduces maintenance costs

Why use smartShift’s Code Security and Compliance Solution?

Security and compliance issues often come to the forefront when it’s least convenient: after a breach, just before an audit, or during a large development project. Reactive approaches are not desirable, nor are traditional development practices that don’t reduce legacy technical debt. Manual approaches are costly, take much time, and produce low quality. Unlike traditional code analysis tools and approaches, smartShift’s solution doesn’t burden you with fixing thousands of security issues manually with no way to determine if they’re truly valid up front.

The patented smartShift Intelligent AutomationTM Platform identifies security vulnerabilities in application code. It considers the relationship between code, SAP security model, and OS configuration to ensure that issues are properly adjudicated as either automatically fixable (and fixes them), false positive, or requiring manual review.

Implementing security fixes will have a major impact on your business unless authorization setup is perfect. This requires a non-disruptive, step-by-step approach. smartShift incorporates a non-disruptive framework for resolving security issues into our delivery methodology. We provide reporting and auditing support for application development and at runtime. Our combination of technology, expertise, and support addresses all of your code security needs.
