An information security company will soon release a tool that will allow companies to test their ERP (enterprise resource planning) software for security threats.
The first version of X1 works with SAP business platforms, said Mariano Nu
X1 can perform several types of security tests, Nu
Current exploits are included in X1, and it's possible to drag and drop exploits to illustrate existing risks "so people are aware of what the vulnerability really means for their business," Nu
If a patch or workaround is available, X1 will show it, and it has a reporting engine that can show detailed vulnerability reports and draw up a mitigation plan, Nu
X1 is capable of checking for violations in SAP platforms of the Payment Card Industry's Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a set of guidelines for protecting payment card data. The tool can also compare to how the current ERP system's configuration compares with an organization's internal security standards.
Pricing will be based on the size of a company's ERP implementation that a company wants to evaluate, Nu
