According to Prof defaults, SAP data is stored in two easy-to-manage formats i.e. ECC and SP compliant. But what are the common data security options?
In an SAP system what one can define as the most used data security option is Data Control. In the Data Control sector, master data is stored in two file formats that are identified as R/3 and R/4.
Data Protection options in SAP
There are various SAP data security options ranging from simple to complex. The SAP-based system has a facility of user access and logon to the system. And this access is provided only to certain users, rather than having the users log on and then have access to the data in all. This gives very good protection to the data with all the users having their own accounts and data only on a certain account.
SAP Specification for SAP Data Protection is contained in the document called BOSPlease. BOSplease also contains a security function that is dedicated to accepting user requests for accessing the data. Each user who has access to the system has to specify what type of access he wishes to perform. This is easily done by giving access rights to the users. Another data security option is the establishment of users as DBAs. In this case, also the access of the users is restricted to a certain number of databases that are defined by the enterprise. These are called pool databases. These databases can be deployed on the enterprise’s SQL server.
SAP Using Data Encryption option
A few companies which are said to be part of the Fortune 500 list do decide to not encrypt their client data at all. The reason behind this is the fear of corporate security. There are dreams of data hacking in the future and even variants of hijacking. If the encryption option is not chosen, there is a chance of the clients’ data being sent out to unidentified users. If the option to encrypt is chosen, then client data is encrypted in transitivity mode. The encrypted data is first sent to the user and only the client application aware of it. It makes sure that even if the data is intercepted, no one else is aware of it.
Support to ECCMA standards is quite good in most of the companies. They support the ECCMA rules in their applications.
SAP has an Option to Lock Files and Folders
The implementation of freezing data protection is an interesting aspect. It provides the users an option to protect the data with a password. If you have some confidential files that you keep in the Zip folder, then you can keep the files locked with a password and only upload the files in case you forget it. It can also be used in the same way in the case of folders or sub-folders in Zip format.
Also, all the options to encrypt data with algorithms are supported by SAP.
SAPCA stands for ‘Systems, Applications and Products’ or SAP was founded in the German SAP Technology area. Today it is divided into eight operating areas, which are SAP AG, SAP Technology, SAP Services, SAP ECC, SAP Customer, SAP Solutions, and SAP Infrastructure. SAP Solutions is one of the fastest-growing segments in the company. SAP companies are worldwide and are found mostly in German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and Dutch authorizations.
