SAP and XM Cyber Announce Strategic Partnership

XM Cyber announced its strategic partnership with SAP. Leveraging the capabilities of XM Cyber's Exposure Management Platform and its attack-path technology, this partnership will help organizations utilizing SAP solutions, such as RISE with SAP and SAP eCommerce Cloud, to transition their data and processes to the cloud with less risk and without compromise. SAP customers can now use the company's exposure management technology to gain visibility into their entire attack surface, both on-premise and in the cloud, to detect and migrate malicious activity before it can occur.  

According to XM Cyber's recent research, 71 percent of organizations have exposures in their on-prem networks that put their critical assets in the cloud at risk, highlighting the need for stronger hybrid security controls. In addition to offering the XM Cyber platform to customers, SAP is also utilizing XM Cyber to secure its own hybrid cloud and IT infrastructure. The platform provides SAP with continuous attack identification, remediation, monitoring, and validation capabilities.  

"Many organizations continue to struggle with the security complexities associated with managing diverse on-premise and cloud environments," said Tim McKnight, EVP and Chief Security Officer at SAP. "An important part of our ecosystem is ensuring that our customers can securely scale and adapt their infrastructure as required. Partners like XM Cyber, with its attack-path modeling technology, are uniquely positioned to help us and our customers reduce risks within hybrid environments, enhancing resilience against attacks and increasing overall security posture."  

XM Cyber's platform is now available for purchase in the SAP Store, the online marketplace for solutions from SAP and its trusted partners. SAP Store provides customers with real-time access to over 2,300 innovative solutions to become intelligent enterprises and help digitally transform their business. SAP Partners can also benefit from this offer and add their own managed service offering. The offer extends to XM Cyber's continuous control monitoring capabilities which ensures existing security controls are well configured and helps enterprises automate compliance against standards such as ISO, NIST, SWIFT and GDPR. 

"Through this strategic partnership, we are harnessing the combined expertise of SAP with our proven technology to help streamline the reduction of risk and the remediation of exposures within organizations," said Noem Erez, CEO and co-founder of XM Cyber. "Our goal is to provide security teams with the data and intelligence needed to quickly remediate the risks which matter most by offering an attacker's perspective with holistic attack path modeling."
