Real-time defense against APTs and targeted attacks

Deep Discovery integrated with IBM Security QRadar SIEM enables organizations to more quickly, confidently and cost-effectively detect and respond to advanced persistent threats (APTs) and network targeted attacks that are invisible to traditional security systems, or that are easily lost in the “noise” of millions of events.

  • Deep Discovery provides real-time threat intelligence (detection, analysis, characteristics, remediation recommendations) across the entire attack lifecycle. Its specialized inspection engines and custom sandbox simulation identify zero-day malware, malicious communications, and attacker activities that are invisible to standard security products.
  • IBM Security QRadar SIEM consolidates log source event data from thousands of devices endpoints and applications distributed throughout a network. It performs immediate normalization and correlation activities on raw data to distinguish real threats from false positives. Deep Discovery automatically pushes syslog attack event data it collects to QRadar in Log Event Enhanced Format (LEEF).  QRadar is then used for wider context analysis, correlation and investigation, and therefore helps detect, predict and remediate breaches.

Trend Micro and SAP: Security for greater efficiency

Open all

Business-critical data—a profitable target for industrial espionage

Almost all data in SAP systems is business-critical—which is why it is increasingly moving into the crosshairs of industrial espionage. Most instances of drive-by manipulation, deletion or even theft of business-critical data have devastating consequences. In order to continue leveraging the immense benefits of SAP software and of developments such as big data in the face of this increasing threat, organisations require an end-to-end solution to protect SAP applications and data.

Trend Micro—setting the pace for cloud security

Trend Micro is the "pioneer and pace setter" for cloud security, and—according to the Experton Group—its Deep Security product "currently sets the benchmark for competitors." Deep Security enables comprehensive protection of physical, virtual, and cloud-based servers and desktops using a stand-alone, centrally managed platform. Trend Micro has a long history of collaborating with SAP as an OEM partner. SAP AG's certification of Deep Security 9 as "SAP Certified – Integration with SAP NetWeaver" affirms that integration via certain interfaces works.

Trend Micro Deep Security

Trend Micro Deep Security is a modular security solution for aggressive protection of physical, virtual, and cloud-based servers and desktops. Deep Security provides the following features, and more, for system protection:

  • Integrity monitoring: detecting changes to file systems and registry
  • Firewall: blocking illegitimate communication
  • Anti-malware/web reputation: protecting servers against malware and checking Web connections to prevent any potential threats from the outset
  • IDS/IPS: detecting and blocking attacks on, e.g., SAP systems and supporting infrastructure elements
  • Virtual patching: closing security gaps even if no official patch is available


See the datasheet (PDF)

What are the particular benefits of virtualisation?

Close collaboration with VMware enables Deep Security to deliver considerable cost, performance, and security benefits in VMware-based virtualised environments:

Security for data and applications

Deep Security's modules for firewall, IDS/IPS, antivirus, etc. have been providing comprehensive protection for SAP system infrastructures for many years. SAP's certification of the VSI interface represents a key enhancement of Deep Security's set of capabilities to include content security for SAP NetWeaver—and thus for all SAP applications using anti-malware security via SAP NetWeaver. This means, for example, that uploads or downloads can be submitted from applications to SAP NetWeaver and, from there, to Deep Security, or that job applicant cvs can be checked for malware when they arrive in the HR module. The entire configuration—which application is used to scan content from which activity—takes place transparently within the SAP environment.

This ensures that Deep Security covers all of the security requirements: From protection for host systems to on-site, virtualised, or cloud-based SAP applications. This increases performance, simplifies management, and ultimately cuts costs.

SecureCloud: Encryption for data protection in SAP systems

Security is never absolutely safe—because you can never entirely rule out the human factor. This is why organisations have to protect themselves in case an intruder accesses their data in SAP systems or applications. The SecureCloud module offers encryption of data and virtual hard drives so that they cannot be read by external parties. This is achieved using a dedicated key management server that is fully controlled by the organisation—and may even physically reside within its data centre if necessary. This server checks the systems' identity and integrity and only provides keys if the check is successful.

Simplified compliance

Business IT systems and processes need to comply with a large number of legal requirements such as data privacy acts, corporate governance regulations, or PCI DSS. Deep Security is Common Criteria EAL 4+ certified and enables organisations in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland to quickly and easily provide proof of compliance at any time. All relevant data is immediately available during audits. For example, all of the questions relating to Standard PS330, 331 for IT system checks (IDW, Institute of Public Auditors in Germany) can be answered at the click of a button.

SAP helps organisations of all sizes and in all industries to operate their business profitably, adapt continuously, and grow sustainably. From back office to boardroom, warehouse to shelf, and desktop to mobile device—SAP enables people and organisations to collaborate more efficiently and to use business information more effectively than their competitors.
