SAP Security Audit

The majority of company assets, such as financial data, human capital and know-how, are stored in SAP systems. An extensive system audit will reveal security issues and allow you to increase the system’s security and protect these assets efficiently.

 SAP security audit

Our consultants carry out a security check of your SAP systems and highlight potential flaws in your SAP security concept, according to best practice recommendations for security settings. The analysis is performed using the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) and examines the following key areas:

  • System configuration (parameters, logging transport management)
  • Documents (comparison of the concept’s target state and actual state)
  • Roles (technical compliance, functional compliance, according to guidelines)
  • Authorizations (administration of jobs, users, transports, systems)
  • Users (profile allocation, user types, critical authorizations, login activities)

The results of the analysis are recorded and saved in a report. This comprehensive evaluation of system security is followed by a final customer presentation with management summary.
