For about a year, Capgemini’s SAP Basis team has been working with Protect4S for a few SAP support customers in the Netherlands. The collaboration went very well and after many discussions, an attractive model was found to deploy the Protect4S software more widely for more SAP managed services customers of Capgemini.
This has resulted in a long-term agreement between Capgemini and Protect4S whereby all Capgemini countries can deploy this new SAP security as a service, powered by Protect4S, for their SAP support customers.
Hans Peter van der Horst, Industrialization & Automation director at Capgemini, says: “Not only is cybercrime increasing enormously, but so is the pressure from audit and compliance. As a major SAP service provider, Capgemini has a duty to structurally raise and maintain our SAP customers at a higher level of SAP security. Protect4S offers an excellent proven solution for this that is very user-friendly at low costs.”
His colleague Michel Maas, SAP architect at Capgemini, adds: “Our SAP Basis support team in the Netherlands has been working with Protect4S for more than a year now and recently also our offshore colleagues at Capgemini India. The Protect4S application is very intuitive and makes the SAP security work of our people much easier.”
Protect4S is an SAP-certified Add-On and the most complete and advanced SAP Vulnerability Management solution worldwide. With Protect4S, the SAP systems are automatically scanned for around 2000 security checks at any desired frequency (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly). Protect4S automates many processes and guides additional actions via clear dashboards, mitigation plans and reports.
“We are extremely proud and pleased that a big name such as Capgemini will be widely deploying Protect4S for its SAP security services. This is a fantastic confirmation of how easily Protect4S can be integrated into the services of SAP Managed Service Providers,” says Onno Coenen, Partner & Commercial Lead at Protect4S.
