AlertEnterprise’s Enterprise Sentry™ and Enterprise Guardian™ Security Products Become SAP-Endorsed Business Solutions

AlertEnterprise today announced that its Enterprise Guardian™ and Enterprise Sentry™ products are now available as SAP-endorsed business solutions. For customers and organizations with sensitive facilities, equipment and infrastructure, AlertEnterprise Enterprise Guardian and Enterprise Sentry – integrated with SAP® applications – provides critical infrastructure protection and physical security, primarily for industries including utilities, oil & gas, transportation, federal and life sciences, via the convergence of IT and operational technologies (OT). AlertEnterprise is one of the first SAP partners to deliver solutions for physical and operational security that integrate with SAP ERP application data for advanced security and monitoring.

Features provided by Enterprise Guardian and Enterprise Sentry support new scenarios for detection and response to potential threats and possible attacks by correlating system and event data across the silos of IT, physical security and industrial control systems. AlertEnterprise is able to deliver these capabilities through integration of its Enterprise Guardian and Enterprise Sentry solutions with SAP applications and the SAP HANA® database to correlate events and detect alerts in real time. AlertEnterprise Enterprise Sentry and Enterprise Guardian integrate with SAP ERP, the SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM), and the SAP Enterprise Asset Management (SAP EAM) solutions to enable threat prevention and proactive, timely, incident response for protection of critical infrastructure.

“Asset-intensive industries like utilities, energy, chemicals and transportation make up a significant portion of the nation’s critical infrastructure,” said Jasvir Gill, founder and CEO of AlertEnterprise. “AlertEnterprise solutions deliver IT-OT convergence that enables customers to enhance operational reliability, protect operating assets, and respond instantly to multiple complex threats that might otherwise go unnoticed.”

Evolving regulations, standards and best-practice frameworks (e.g., NERC CIP, CFATS, MTSA, NIST SP800-xx and HITRUST) require monitoring of physical access controls and tracking of access to critical assets. Convergence technology from AlertEnterprise automates these processes and extends the capabilities of the SAP Access Control application to automate Segregation of Duty (SoD) and compliance management for critical industries.

“An important part of our national security is related to protecting the nation’s power grid and gas distribution,” commented Kevin McCollom, vice president, GRC Solution Management, SAP. “Early detection of potential issues is now made easier with the ability to correlate billions of IT system transactions, physical events, and operational events and data through these endorsed solutions from AlertEnterprise integrated with SAP solutions. AlertEnterprise’s Enterprise Guardian and Enterprise Sentry solutions – used together with SAP HANA – show the power of SAP HANA, delivering capabilities that enable detection and early response to these critical security issues.”

Solutions endorsed by SAP are complementary to SAP software offerings, are developed in accordance with SAP development guidelines, and provide additional choices and flexibility for businesses running SAP applications.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
