In September 2010, SAP released Secure Configuration of SAP NetWeaver ABAP Whitepaper, which describes "a set of security measures for ABAP systems against unauthorized access within the corporate network." These measures are not addressed by segregation of duties controls nor the security of base operating systems and databases; their sole focus is on the security of the SAP technology platform (Basis/NetWeaver). With reported SAP security notes on the rise from 20 per year in 2007, to over 1000 in 2014, SAP is proactively trying to help their customers mitigate the growing security risks to their SAP systems.
