Independence of resources
Server infrastructure inherited from proven SAP NetWeaver architecture and Cache infrastructure (Application server global and program local ones) minimises load on central components (esp. the database). Application web servers are added automatically if the load becomes compromised. We have a full security and infrastructure guide on this subject.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability

Approach to resilience
Data Centre information can be found at
Outage reporting
SAP data centres maintain multiple connections to several power companies, making a complete power outage highly unlikely. Even if the local power grid were to fail, the data centres supporting your SAP Cloud solution have an uninterruptible power supply for short-term outages, and a diesel generator backup power supply for longer-term outages. Therefore, power interruptions or outages are unlikely to affect customer data or solution access.

Configuration and change management standard
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach

Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402

Vulnerability management focuses on identifying, assessing, and mitigating common known vulnerabilities and configuration issues that might represent a potential risk to the integrity and security of systems or services. The following services are part of the Vulnerability Management system.

Vulnerability Scanning
External Penetration Testing
Customer Performed Vulnerability Assessment.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
In SAP Cloud Business Applications an automated monitoring system and operations personnel ensure the system availability 24x7. Security relevant events are logged and retained for 180 days in a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) system.
CCTV footage must be archived for at least 90 days (or maximum allowed by local law)
• Monitoring room to be staffed 7x24
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach
SAP Cloud implements formal event reporting and follows escalation procedures if an information security incident occurs. Documented security incident response plans for the cloud solutions from SAP ensure that the best possible level of service quality and availability is achieved.
Security incidents are monitored and tracked by security specialists in cooperation with defined communication channels relating to customer until resolved. A Security Breach is a confirmed security incidents in which sensitive, protected, personally identifiable information (PII) or confidential data is: exposed, transmitted, copied, viewed, stolen or used by an individual or a group unauthorised to do so.
