Rev-Trac, a business that deals with SAP change management and DevOps orchestration, announced a strategic partnership with Turnkey, a globally renowned risk management consultancy, to address the ever-growing threat of cyber-attacks on the SAP application layer. The newly formed alliance allows SAP-using organizations to minimize risk exposure and manage user access by giving them the tools and expertise to secure their business-critical applications. Under the terms of the agreement, Turnkey can offer Rev-Trac Platinum to its customers to help build advanced security and GRC practices into the SAP change management process. Rev-Trac Platinum, an automated SAP change control platform, enables organizations to significantly reduce risk and prevent harm to the production system through enforcement and guaranteed compliance. Users adopt a collaborative approach to establish workflows and practices to solve the challenges of delivering secure application changes and development projects for SAP.
The partnership comes when the ERP industry is undergoing a massive transformation. The rapid acceleration of digital and Cloud technologies forces organizations to rethink their approach to cybersecurity, unauthorized access, and other vulnerabilities. It’s no longer sufficient to build a secure perimeter around specific IT assets and databases and limit or control access. At the same time, SAP systems are integrated across more departments, driving up ransomware and phishing attacks and increasing the potential attack surface, with integrations often requiring custom coding to work. With the recent increase in the volume and sophistication of cyber-attacks, it is critical that security practices be built into the development process to avoid code vulnerabilities migrating to production.
