SAP Admits to Security Lapses in Some Products, but Says There Was No Data Breach
Posted May 6, 2020
- Business software group SAP disclosed on Tuesday that some of its cloud products did not meet contractual or statutory security standards and said it would take remedial action to fix the problem as soon as possible.
- While SAP, Europe’s most richly valued technology company, declined to elaborate on a statement it issued overnight, the news follows management turmoil and a reduction to its profit forecast due to the coronavirus pandemic.
