Business-critical applications are ubiquitous and support critical functions and processes of global organizations, such as supply chain controls and flows, manufacturing processes, financial transactions, and human capital management . According to SAP data, more than 87% of global commerce passes through SAP systems. It is therefore fair to say that these mission-critical applications fuel the global economy. We all know how important these applications are to the business, but securing them continues to present challenges for organizations. Unfortunately, with research showing threat actors increasingly targeting the application layerthe need for security has never been greater.
The growing complexity and size of application environments, heavy customization of individual applications, and growing patch backlogs have left organizations with a longer list and greater variety of vulnerabilities to identify, understand, and act on. Exposure and risk of exploitation at the application layer is now much higher due to internal digital transformation initiatives, with many critical applications moving to the cloud, connecting to third parties, or becoming publicly available. Externally, organizations face significant risks from increasing ransomware attacks on critical systems and looming cyber warfare threats.
This combination of more vulnerabilities, more threats, and greater exposure means companies need strong vulnerability management programs around their mission-critical applications. However, traditional vulnerability management tools do not sufficiently support these complex ERP environments with the granularity necessary to effectively protect them against malicious actors. This forces teams to rely on manual efforts, when they are already under-resourced and exhausted from various other projects. Alternatively, they may simply not have the security expertise in such business-critical SAP applications, for example, to better understand how and where to start. Either way, this inevitably leads to an environment full of unaddressed risks and open attack vectors in the organization’s most important assets.
The time has come organizations to reassess how they secure their most critical applications to ensure business continuity.
