SAP Enterprise Threat Detection


Identify attacks on SAP systems before it’s too late

SAP Enterprise Threat Detection (SAP ETD) is a solution that analyzes IT security risks in real time in SAP landscapes. By assessing the log files of the systems at hand – including network components, databases, and applications from both SAP and other providers – SAP ETD can quickly and reliably detect attacks from internal and external sources, enabling you to take corresponding measures as fast as possible. In addition, it is capable of generating business impact analyses that show you the effects a specific attack had on your SAP landscape.

SAP ETD Solution Overview

SAP ETD Highlights

Threat Detection

HANA Smart Data Streaming (SDS) collects log files from every connected system. The data therein is then normalized, pseudonymized, and further enriched before proceeding directly to a SAP HANA database for analysis. SDS can also pass the data on to an archiving solution.

Pattern recognition

Logs can contain suspicious activity. By analyzing them, SAP ETD can determine whether they correspond to any known threat pattern and sound the alarm in case they do.

Forensic analysis

SAP ETD aids security analysts in monitoring their systems in real time. It also offers the ability to compare historic data against known threat patterns. This in turn makes it possible to identify new patterns that can be incorporated into future ad hoc analyses.

SIEM Integration

Data from security information and event management (SIEM) software and third-party security solutions can be fed into SAP EDT’s analyses.
