OREANDA-NEWS. SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) won an award for cloud security at the IT-Security Expo & Congress “it-sa” held in Nuremberg, Germany, on October 6. The award, by IT Security magazine, was for SAP’s Security Configuration Compliance project, which helps increase the safety of cloud infrastructure.

“We are honored that our security teams have won this award,” said Bernd Leukert, member of the Executive Board of SAP SE. “While security is a must in the digital economy, being recognized as a leader in this space reemphasizes our measures to protect SAP customers and ourselves.”

SAP started the Security Configuration Compliance project to achieve transparency in data collection, reporting and the improvement of security parameters. The project helps ensure regular checking of defined security. The identified level of compliance is made transparent to responsible technical staff and to SAP’s cloud customers through a reporting dashboard.

Since 2007, IT Security magazine has offered awards in the following categories: Management Security, Web/Internet Security, Cloud Security, Identity & Access Management. SAP won an award in the Management Security category in 2014.

The IT-Security Expo & Congress is Europe’s largest IT security trade fair. The awards at this fair honor the most successful IT experts in the German-speaking region.
