Logpoint Enhances its Business-Critical Security Solution for SAP SuccessFactors

Logpoint is updating its Business-Critical Security (BCS) solution for SAP SuccessFactors, enabling real-time security and compliance monitoring of SAP SuccessFactors, which is a Human Capital Management (HCM) application.

Through log extraction, continuous monitoring, and cross-correlation of data, BCS for SuccessFactors provides holistic, landscape-wide threat visibility in the Logpoint Converged SIEM platform or any other SIEM solution, according to the vendor.

“Being a Cloud-based product raises a series of security challenges; employees working remotely using unsafe devices and networks, the fact that there are no fixed perimeters in the Cloud, and lack of visibility into the enclosed system,” said Sükrü Ilker Birakoglu, Logpoint Senior Director. “Today, collecting and investigating the relevant security logs is impossible because they are dispersed throughout many reports and events. Up until now, SuccessFactors has been a black box.”

SAP SuccessFactors stores a wide range of personal data, from basic details like date of birth to potentially sensitive information such as religion, salary, pension schemes, social security numbers, or medical history.

Integrating with the Logpoint Converged SIEM platform or other SIEM solutions, BCS for SuccessFactors provides an easy overview with a single pane of glass, allowing users to get complete threat visibility to improve their security response and effectively distinguish potential risks from critical vulnerabilities that could be exploited. The solution also automatically identifies data integrity and compliance issues, easing the burden of complying with GDPR, CCPA, and other data privacy standards.

BCS for SuccessFactors reads and collects the relevant SuccessFactors logs through SAP iRPA (Intelligent Robotic Process Automation), a connector. The logs are subsequently fed into SIEM for analysis, cross-correlation, and continuous monitoring. Tracking all authorizations, logins, access to sensitive data, misuse of privileges and more enables organizations to detect unauthorized downloads of sensitive data, changes to user roles, role-based permissions, alterations to proxy roles or assignments or DDoS attempts.

“As organizations migrate to SAP cloud solutions like SuccessFactors, they need to be mindful that they themselves are responsible for their own customer data and data security, authentication and authorizations, and to review security logs,” said Birakoglu. “We’re excited to offer the first and fully automated advanced SuccessFactors monitoring solution in the market, enabling our customers to be confident that compliance monitoring and data privacy is ensured.”

BCS for SuccessFactors is easily deployed and configured, allowing a quick roll-out. On top of that, it works for every industry and integrates with any SIEM, according to the vendor.
