An ERP system is really at the heart of any organization. It enables and facilitates all critical business processes human resources management, financial planning, product management, and more. More importantly, it holds all the data critical to the organization financial information, employee data, customer details, product information, and so on. The espionage or sabotage of this data could have a devastating impact on the company, translating into huge financial losses, a disruption in business processes, and the loss of customer trust.
It is hence essential that you pen test your ERP system to be assured that it is fully secure. A pen test will help you discover what kind of critical data attackers can gain access to.
However, this is easier said than done, for ERP systems are notoriously difficult to test, more so than applications or networks.
However, there is no question that a detailed pen test of your ERP system is essential and mandatory. It can provide an independent and comprehensive overview of where your vulnerabilities lie, the business impact of these risks, and the mitigating measures that you need to take.
When it comes to pen testing an ERP system, remember that what is needed is a holistic approach, one that focuses on architecture, business logic and configuration problems rather than mere technical flaws or coding vulnerabilities.
