Product Report: SECUDE Security Intelligence

Report Details

SECUDE is a vendor specializing in security solutions mainly for SAP customers. In addition to their latest product, SECUDE Security Intelligence, the company’s portfolio includes a number of solutions providing authentication and communication within SAP environments.

SECUDE Security Intelligence works by providing a layer between the various protocols and SAP-related systems handling SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) information on the one hand, and the receiving applications on the other. These are typically also SIEM-enabled. Data in the SAP system is extracted by the central component – the “Publisher” – which forwards it to the receiving applications. The system provides significantly more and more valuable information than most other SIEM products. Thanks to the flexibility of its modular architecture, SECUDE SI creates much greater benefits than solution based on proprietary interfaces for each individual SIEM system.

In its first version SECUDE SI already proved itself to be fully functional. In our opinion, however, there is room for improvement in details such as setup, SAP certification, and flexible configuration. Having said this, we still feel that the basic solution can be deployed with benefit in most productive environments. SECUDE’s current roadmap, based on the proven architecture already available, leads us to expect that a far more powerful system will be available soon that will be able to satisfy even greater demands.

We recommend the current version for evaluation by customers already using SIEM solutions and who worry that the information about their ABAP based SAP environments provided by these systems is not sufficient for them to maintain overall security and to demonstrate compliance in the face of increasing legal and regulatory pressure.
