SAP ArcSight Integration – Sending SAP Security Events to ArcSight using CEF Format

SAP ArcSight integration including sending realtime SAP security events to ArcSight can be accomplished by Enterprise Threat Monitor in a couple of steps.

ETM has over 300 SAP specific threat detection cases built-in and preconfigured, which includes 0-day SAP attack signatures, common attacks such using debug/replace on SAP to bypass authorizations, and compliance related issues such as SAP account sharing or download of customer master data.

Further configuration of customer specific Z* or Y* tables, reports and SAP transactions can be easily configured in the Enterprise Threat Monitor customizations screen.

For connecting ArcSight with SAP security events, Enterprise Threat Monitor is used. ETM connects to SAP systems and analyzes realtime security events using its correlation engine. It then uses machine learning to eliminate false positives and noise.

The results are high quality offenses in HP ArcSight CEF format, which are ready to be consumed by ArcSight.
