Logpoint launches cloud security solution for SAP BTP
Wed, 17th Jan 2024

Logpoint, a cybersecurity company, has announced the launch of its Business Critical Security (BCS) solution for SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP). This new release will arm organisations with cloud security capabilities, allowing them to effectively manage monitoring and threat detection within SAP BTP. Applications built and managed on the platform will benefit from its extensive threat visibility features and proactive defence against unwanted activities.

SAP BTP provides a range of integrated services and tools, facilitating application development, deployment, and management. Its strengths include database and data management, analytics, machine learning, and more, making it a versatile platform for creating diverse applications, including web and mobile. Yet, with its position as the central point of entire cloud infrastructures, it potentially allows threat actors to access applications built on the platform and all integrations with other applications.

Skr Ilker Birakoglu, Senior Director at Logpoint, commented, "Organisations use SAP BTP for developing and deploying applications, and if it gets compromised, the entire cloud infrastructure can be at risk. Until now, SAP Basis Managers have had to access, review and correlate reports in each cloud system individually, which requires a substantial amount of effort, leading to missed opportunities to handle security breaches before they turn into problems."

The newly launched Logpoint BCS for SAP BTP is designed to empower organisations to proactively tackle threats and keep attacks at bay through real-time monitoring of security-related events such as logins, users' geography, timeframes, and changes to roles and configurations. The solution will help organisations to save time, resources, and alleviates alert fatigue with its intuitive dashboards, offering an easy and prioritised overview of security incidents. This allows users to act promptly and effectively mitigate threats.

Mr Birakoglu further explained, "Our solution elevates the security of SAP BTP and boosts the security posture. A login from an unauthorised location triggers an alert for immediate notification. The monitoring capability empowers administrators to quickly scrutinise patterns and deviations from established norms and discern potential security threats and anomalies. With our real-time capabilities and actionable dashboards, we empower SAP Basis Managers to be proactive and mitigate threats in the early stages of an attack."

The Logpoint BCS for SAP BTP is an add-on to Logpoint BCS for SAP solutions, which enables visibility across the SAP environment, ensuring organisations can effectively respond to threats. By integrating with Logpoint's Converged SIEM platform, it delivers comprehensive threat detection and incident response across the entire IT infrastructure. The overall aim is striving for a more secure and risk-minimised cloud environment for businesses operating on SAP BTP.
