Our reliance on technology has made system security essential. Today’s cyber threats are more advanced than ever, surpassing traditional defenses like firewalls and antivirus software. In 2023, over 90% of successful cyberattacks involved the exploitation of unpatched software vulnerabilities.
Picture the SAP Kernel as the heartbeat of the system, vitalizing the core programs upon which the fundamental functionality of SAP applications rely on. It's the life force pulsing through the application server, executable programs, database, and operating system, rather than merely encompassing them within itself. SAP Kernel upgrades refer to updating the system's current executables with upgraded versions. These upgrades are essential to patch security vulnerabilities and fix bugs. Besides bug fixing, SAP Kernel upgrades improve hardware compatibility, boost speed, and enhance stability.
