Technology and Manufacturing

Problem

Technology companies create software and hardware for different types of customers all around the world. Their primary purpose is to create solutions that would meet the needs and ensure the benefits of their customers from different areas. Cybercriminals are naturally drawn towards this resourceful industry with the sole purpose of making backdoors in their software and hardware products. A successful hack into any technology driven company’s system will expose its SAP PLM (Product Lifecycle Management). Manufacturing companies produce goods; hackers can modify data and schemes used in the PLM, PPM or CAD systems, and alter the production of goods, which may result in the poor quality of the product. If the manufactured goods do not meet quality standards, the company will have to recall them, which in its turn can lead to reputational and financial losses.

Solution

ERPScan can help to reduce the specific risks that most IT companies are subject to. We draw upon our experience with SAP SE as well as the assisting companies like Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, and HP, in identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities to understand the specific needs of the IT and technology companies during the development of their products. We analyze SAP systems, which are usually installed in every industry, and other critical systems, such as Product Lifecycle Management and Manufacturing systems. User access to critical transactions and programs used by the PLM modules is also thoroughly examined.
