ERP Review

ERP systems like SAP and Oracle are business critical applications running everything from supply chains to storing personnel data to recording sales activities, and a lot more. The data that ERP systems store, process, and transmit can be considered the ‘crown jewels’ any enterprise. And yet these systems lack robust security controls leaving them vulnerable to breaches.

Most cybersecurity initiatives are viewed from the perspective of defending the perimeter with little attention paid to the application layer. ERP systems have been a cybersecurity blindspot for many years which has led to a significant rise in the number of attacks. ERP systems are complex interconnected applications reaching into several business functions. Their deployment model is no longer limited to a controlled on-premise environment but extends to the cloud. This complexity coupled with suboptimal security controls means that ERP systems have an extraordinarily large attack surface and if infiltrated, bad actors can precipitate a series of crippling attacks across your network.

ERP systems are shipped with configuration settings that are not optimized for security and compliance At GRM Technologies, our experts will carry out comprehensive configuration reviews to gain an insight into the workings of your ERP system and resolve any suboptimal configuration settings that could give attackers a foothold into your system. We will conduct penetration tests to uncover vulnerabilities related to authorization, directory traversal, SQL injection, and others that are common in ERP systems. We will also ensure that your ERP systems are up-to-date with latest software and critical patches to defend against any public exploits.

Another aspect of ERP systems that require attention from a security standpoint is related to the transport system. Transports are an essential part of an SAP environment and are used to implement new features, apply updates, and install third-party applications. However, transports can also create serious security flaws such as modification of roles and authorizations, manipulation and unauthorized export of confidential data, execution of undesirable code, and other issues. Our team of experts will work with you to deploy industry-standard tools that scan transports for any vulnerabilities, security, and quality before they are released.

For ERP systems that are web-enabled, our team of security experts look for issues around user input and validation, token and session management, and parameterized queries. An audit against the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities will ensure that your system is secure against SQL injection, XSS, and CSRF attacks.

Our experts will also provide guidance on installing ERP scanners from leading vendors. We will work with you to deploy and configure these tools to monitor your ERP environment for any missing patches and vulnerabilities and insecure configurations, which could lead to a security hazard.

A natural consequence applying the necessary rigors to strengthen your ERP environment is that you will always stay in compliance to regulations such as GDPR, PCI DSS, SOX, and others. You can be rest assured that our experts will help you implement a security program around your ERP systems in a meaningful and thoughtful way without causing any disruption your business environment.
