Technical Requirements

View technical information for implementing, managing, and configuring SAP S/4HANA.

User management

Users can access SAP S/4HANA from a web browser via any device. All they need to get started is an internet connection, the URL, and access rights.

Identity and access management

Effective identity and access management is the basis for secure and compliant system operation.

Security

Cloud customers can trust SAP to keep their business and data safe. SAP S/4HANA Cloud complies with the most stringent industry standards.  

Data protection

SAP S/4HANA complies with general data privacy acts, country and industry-specific data protection legislation, and the highest safety standards: 

  • Business data is stored in secure data centers
  • Customers may share physical hardware, but data is always separated
  • Users who require access to business data must authenticate themselves, and their identity must be verified by user and access management
  • Customer data always belongs to the customer

Data center best practices

We follow operating best practices for data centers:

  • Computation and storage parts of solutions are deployed over separated fire-safe areas to support disaster recovery
  • A redundant hardware storage system performs regular backups
  • An advanced database management solution is used to securely isolate each customer’s business information 

External auditing

We perform regular audits to ensure early detection of security issues:

  • We are committed to third-party validations, standards, and certifications of the policies and procedures we use to maintain our customers’ security, privacy, and data integrity 
  • We maintain several different certifications and accreditations to ensure the highest standards of service and reliability for our customers
