SECUDE Addresses Increasing Customer Demand for Vulnerability Management for SAP NetWeaver® With SECUDE Security Center

LUCERNE, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwire - February 19, 2008) - Addressing an increased demand for cost-effective end-to-end Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), SECUDE International AG announces the launch of its new enterprise software solution for automated vulnerability management for the SAP NetWeaver® platform. Capitalizing on more than 10 years experience in IT security for SAP environments, SECUDE has developed a solution that provides instant insights into SAP NetWeaver® vulnerabilities and helps automate the security management processes across entire SAP landscapes.

Many successful companies rely on SAP business solutions to automate and manage their business processes. Any problems with the stability of their SAP solutions or a data security breach would result in a significant loss of revenue, stock price, and reputation. To combat this risk, companies are looking into ways how to efficiently achieve and maintain a secure configuration of their SAP business solutions. While the analysis of risks at the business process layer is increasingly addressed by the SAP GRC portfolio, the automated, proactive detection of vulnerabilities in SAP NetWeaver across the entire SAP landscape is a largely unaddressed area.

"The market has been waiting for this," says Peter Adams, Vice President SAP Solutions Division at SECUDE, "Companies need software solutions that help efficiently manage security of their SAP NetWeaver® platform, in support of flawless business process execution and compliance with regulations. Our new solution enables companies to automate regular vulnerability management tasks for SAP NetWeaver®. This is a large step up from manual security checks."

SECUDE Security Center is an innovative software solution that enables companies to automatically assess and manage vulnerabilities in SAP NetWeaver® without the need for expensive consulting services to execute routine tasks. Features include:

--  Ease-of use -- First insights are available within minutes through a
    browser-based user interface and remote, non-intrusive checks;
--  Automation -- Scheduled checks for a large numbers of SAP systems
--  Know-How -- World-class SAP security expertise packaged into pre-
    defined security checks and an extensive knowledge base

SECUDE Security Center helps companies comply with regulations like PCI-DSS and to lower audit costs. It also reduces the cost to build up specialized SAP security know-how, improves transparency of the security situation, and introduces control checks for internal security guidelines. Through its open and modular design, SECUDE Security Center is easy to customize, expand and integrate with other security management processes.
