Announcement: Turnkey and ABEX Partnership

Leading SAP security platform provider ABEX and SAP IT security specialist, Turnkey Consulting, have announced a global partnership, following several successful joint projects.

Turnkey Consulting is a global provider of expertise in SAP and GRC security and ABEX, the provider of SecurityBridge, is a “rising star” in SAP security. With today’s announcement, ABEX and Turnkey Consulting will be partnering to provide their clients with a combination of an advanced security platform and a team of experts to deliver solutions on a global basis.

Organisations understand that the probability of being infiltrated is realistically high. Many have been victims of a cyber-attack, with or without awareness. GDPR, and a rising tide of stringent regulatory legislation, has increased the obligation for securing privacy data, or risk strict punitive measures. Risk assessments and compliance are a key area of focus for the partnership to add value to their client services.

Richard Hunt, managing director of Turnkey Consulting, said: “Technology in this space is evolving rapidly with improved methods of threat detection and intelligence providing our clients with a number of options to defend their SAP systems from an increasing number of cyber attacks. Turnkey’s independent status gives us critical insight into the solutions available in the market and enables us to select the products that best answer each organisation’s individual needs. We are already working with several companies that have selected the SecurityBridge Plat-form and including ABEX as one of our strategic partners broadens the options we have available to provide real-time threat monitoring and vulnerability management to our clients.”

“Threats against SAP systems are becoming more prevalent and more sophisticated. As we've seen with the recent RECON zero-day, vulnerabilities can and do exist. The most effective, proven approach is to combine constant real-time threat monitoring and vulnerability management into a holistic security process, said Christoph Nagy, CEO of ABEX. “The partnership with Turnkey Consulting will be highly synergistic for both parties, as we value the expertise and global presence that Turnkey Consulting provides. This will enable our rapidly growing client base to engage in extending their security operations with a trusted service partner, and we look forward to an exciting year ahead".
