SAP S/4 HANA is the biggest update to SAP’s ERP Solution since R/3. With SAP’s mainstream support for the ECC platform ending in 2025, it is not a matter of “if” your organization will transfer to the new system but when and how. S/4 HANA enables you to use your core ERP in combination with cloud-based third-party applications, allowing for a true digital enterprise.
However, with the convenience of widespread digitalization comes the acute realization of being prone to cyber attacks. ERP systems remain a tempting target given the crucial business data they house. According to a
study from the Ponemon Institute, fifty-nine percent of the respondents believed in an increased risk to their SAP applications with new technologies such as cloud, mobile, big data and the Internet of Things.
Sixty percent of these security breaches were seen emanating in-house, making addressing internal threats a top priority for IT professionals.
