New book on SAP HANA security released

SAP HANA Security Guide

SAP Press has released a new book, SAP HANA Security Guide, covering privileges, roles, user provisioning, authentication and auditing in relation to the SAP HANA database and application development platform.

The book is authored by Jonathan Haun, director in the business intelligence group at global consulting firm and SAP Gold Partner Protiviti. He has previously co-authored two other books.

The guide uses practical examples, case studies and detailed instructions to help readers develop a complete security model. It explains how organisations can protect and defend against breaches, includes details of security options such as authentication and encryption, and shows readers how to secure database objects, provision and maintain user accounts, and develop and assign roles.

The book also offers in-depth reviews of authentication, certificate management, auditing, security tracing and other recommended steps for organisations to help protect their SAP HANA data systems.

“Keeping data secure is an important focus for any business that maintains a database,” said Shaheen Dil, a Protiviti managing director and global leader of its Data Management and Advanced Analytics practice. “I consider Jonathan’s new book to be required reading for anyone who supports solutions based on SAP HANA within their landscape.”

A full-time consultant, Haun has over 15 years of IT experience in the field of business intelligence and database administration across a variety of industries. He holds several certifications including: BOCP-BusinessObjects Enterprise; BOCP-Crystal Reports; SCAA-SAP HANA 1.0; SCTA–SAP HANA 1.0 and SCTS-SAP HANA 1.0 Installation.

SAP HANA Security Guide is available now from SAP Press.
