12. How can you ensure that SAP data is protected from hackers?

12. When displaying SAP content using a Web browser, what is an effective way to ensure that data is protected from hackers?

a) Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
b) Use an intermediate server to act as a proxy for your Web content.
c) A and B.
d) None of the above.


Using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) along with a proxy server are two important ways to protect your SAP system from the outside world. SSL will encrypt your data and the proxy server will sit separate from your server with the content and act as a pass through for users to gain access. The proxy server is a device that is setup on the network to access your server from the DMZ. This has a unique port that can only be used by this server, and it helps ensure that the main data server is locked down and protected.
