SAP® Afaria® Cloud Edition: A By-the-Numbers Approach to Security


The software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach to software delivery is rapidly gaining popularity in the enterprise software marketplace. Many companies have found that adopting software “on demand” has become not just a viable option but a necessary cornerstone of their IT strategy. The benefits are obvious: drastically reduced start-up costs and no need for a physical infrastructure or the ongoing maintenance for either the operating system or the applications that run on top of it.

Outsourcing part of the IT infrastructure does come with some perceived risk, however, usually in the area of security. The purpose of this technical paper is to describe SAP’s approach to maintaining confidentiality, data integrity, and system availability for the SAP® Afaria®, cloud edition, set of solutions. We will take a by-the-numbers approach to security, starting with a solution diagram and describing security features at various points in the solution. SAP believes that we have taken a differentiating approach to enterprise mobility management in the cloud. By the end of this paper, you will too.
