Security Technologies

This section describes the security technologies used by Promenta Solutions. Please refer to Authorisation sections for SAP Authorisation settings

Note : Promenta Webflow runs completely within the SAP environment (ECC and optionally, Netweaver Portal) and hence inherit security settings from the underlying systems.


Access to Promenta webflow is usually via web browsers for the majority of users.

Supported browsers are those supported by SAP for your environment and SAP patch level. See the Product Availability Matrix for more details:


Web security such as HTTPS / SSL is provided by the SAP environment itself and is used automatically by Webflow. Promenta recommend HTTPS/SSL for all production systems and a valid SSL certificate is purchased by the customer.

Logon Process

Logon to Promenta Webflow is via the underlying SAP system. However for Web-application-server based installs Promenta do not support “basic authentication” provided by browsers due to its insecurity. Only form-based authentication is supported. 


Most Webflow implementations are not exposed directly to the Internet so the security concerns are reduced. However if webflow is on an external facing system then the customer must implement all of SAPs security recommendations for external facing systems:

  • Firewall settings
  • Proxy servers
  • Antivirus
  • Security-related OS and database patches

Cross-Site Scripting Protection (XSS)

Webflow contains protection for Cross-Site scripting attacks (XSS). This protection is activated by default. More information about this type of vulnerability can be found here :
