Virtual Forge CodeProfiler
With Virtual Forge CodeProfiler, you can identify business risks and correct errors in your ABAP® code automatically.
Fully integrated into the SAP® development environment and based on Virtual Forge’s patented global data and control flow analysis, you can automatically pinpoint and correct critical vulnerabilities in ABAP code. Capturing expert knowledge in more than 240 ready-to-use test cases, CodeProfiler helps to ensure that applications written in ABAP are free of known security, compliance or quality issues. That way, your SAP systems are protected from unauthorized access and you can easily meet the requirements of internal and external auditors. In addition, you increase the overall performance and reduce operational costs of your SAP systems.
Many interesting new applications for SAP HANA will emerge that will process highly critical data and be connected to the outside world through a variety of interfaces. This is why these new solutions need to run in a manner that’s not only stable and efficient, but sufficiently secure, as well. Integrating code checks into the SAP HANA development environment helps prevent errors as early on as possible, train developers in an interactive way, and minimize the long-term costs of defects.
Virtual Forge SystemProfiler
With Virtual Forge SystemProfiler, you can detect and correct errors in SAP® system configurations and avoid recurrence.
Virtual Forge SystemProfiler, the leading solution for validating and optimizing SAP system configurations, is now available in version 3.0. This update by Virtual Forge extends the world of SAP security by delivering security relevant information to SIEM systems. This will bridge the gap to general IT-Security, where SAP data is often neglected – simply because they could not be retrieved properly. Within SAP security, there is news, too: SystemProfiler now supports the continuous monitoring of SAP HANA systems.
This leads to minimized critical risks, significant cost reduction through more stable, and faster SAP systems and drastically reduced effort for monitoring and correction measures.
Virtual Forge TransportProfiler
SAP’s transport system is an important tool in importing changes and custom developments into production systems. That said, it does not perform any detailed checks on transport objects. Inconsistent or faulty SAP transports can therefore cause operational malfunctions or even system shutdowns.
Virtual Forge TransportProfiler checks transports for completeness, consistency, and changes in critical data. This makes it possible to identify flawed transports in advance, which in turn helps prevent system downtime, damage to target systems, and the costs and effort required for correcting errors.
TransportProfiler analyzes and evaluates the changes effected by a transport before it is imported into an SAP system. Its flexible approach to assessing outcomes is designed to account for the individual risks modifications pose to the security and stability of the system in question. This is how TransportProfiler’s detailed analysis and evaluation of individual changes avert negative consequences in target systems.
TransportProfiler comes with extensive checks that are based on Virtual Forge’s years of experience in countless customer projects. It is also possible for customers to define and incorporate their own checks.
