There is a reason Layer Seven Security is the #1 cybersecurity vendor for SAP.
See how we stack up with SAP Enterprise Threat Detection.

Layer Seven Security


The Cybersecurity Extension for SAP (CES) from Layer Seven Security provides 5X the coverage of SAP ETD. ETD provides approximately 200 patterns for detecting and alerting for indicators of compromise in SAP logs. The cloud edition of ETD includes around 50 patterns. In comparison, CES provides 1000+ attack detection patterns for SAP systems.


ETD includes patterns for SAP HANA. However, it does not provide coverage for other databases. CES performs full-stack monitoring including database and host layers. CES includes patterns for not only SAP HANA but also SAP ASE, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. It also monitors operating system logs for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), and Microsoft Server.


Unlike SAP ETD, the Cybersecurity Extension for SAP is an add-on for existing SAP solutions such as SAP Solution Manager and SAP Focused Run. Support for SAP GRC is planned for Q4 2024. Therefore, it does not require new servers and infrastructure. This leads to more rapid deployment and easier maintenance than SAP ETD.


SAP ETD does not support integration with all SIEM solutions. In comparison, CES can be integrated with any SIEM solution that supports log file ingestion. This includes Splunk, QRadar, Sentinel, and LogRhythm.


CES is an integrated solution that provides coverage for SAP threat detection and incident response as well as SAP vulnerability management, patch management, custom code security, and compliance monitoring. CES licensing is a fraction of the cost of SAP ETD.
