SAP SE

SAP has grown to become the world's leading provider of business software solutions. With 12 million users, 96,400 installations, and more than 1,500 partners, SAP is the world's largest inter-enterprise software company and the world's third-largest independent software supplier, overall. SAP solutions help enterprises of all sizes around the world to improve customer relationships, enhance partner collaboration and create efficiencies across their supply chains and business operations.
SAP industry solutions support the unique business processes of more than 25 industry segments, including high tech, retail, manufacturing and financial services. Via HORIZON2020 projects SAP bridges the gap between open, collaborative research with external partners and exploitation into new or existing SAP product lines through SAP's development groups. In the context of this document, SAP refers to SAP AG and his Product Security Research unit.
The 40+ researchers of the Product Security Research unit focus on security engineering (e.g., the automation of the secure software development lifecycle), secure business execution (e.g., business process security and security in cloud-based business applications) and secure operations (e.g., secure maintenance and support of complex and heterogeneous cloud IT landscapes). Recent results include, among many others, a searchable encrypted cloud database, an attack monitoring framework for ERP systems, a security validator for business processes, visualization and enforcement of security constraints, sticky policies for cloud-based applications, and cloud-based secure multi-party computation schemes for optimization problems in distributed supply chains. The Product Security Research team has a long history of leading European collaborative research projects to success (15+ projects in FP7) and is actively contributing to shaping the security research agenda for Europe as part of, for example, the ongoing EU ICT projects A4CLOUD, WEBSAND, PRACTICE, ANIKETOS and POSECCO.
