How a Leading Sports Club Secured SAP with TransientAccess ZTNA

TransientAccess delivers true Zero Trust Network Access for the Fenerbahce Sports Club

With over 5000 employees and more than 300,000 members,
Fenerbahce is one of the largest multi-sport clubs in Turkey and is a
major retailer in its own right.

With their dedicated fan bases, legal and illegal betting riding on game results and big revenue streams, professional sports clubs are among the most targeted companies by hackers. Successful attacks can have devastating effects on company operations and reputation.

An organization’s viability can be imperiled because of damage caused by IP loss. For an organization like Fenerbahçe, SAP is the most important digital asset to defend. Protecting such a high value asset means going beyond traditional security paradigms. Most organizations deploy multiple security layers to protect SAP data, such as NGFWs, AV, MFA along with robust IT security policies. Yet all these steps can still leave holes that
need to be closed.

FC Fenerbahce relies heavily on SAP for all business-critical processes. The executives and security teams are responsible for carrying out this process knowing that their business revolves around this information. However, they are also aware of hidden dangers such as user accesses, file downloads, and data leaks that can occur due to data streaming. It therefore became critical to implement solutions that monitor and prevent such leaks.

“After a detailed product assessment, in-depth presentations and a pilot
project to measure performance in our company’s environment,
TransientAccess demonstrated reliability and effectively demonstrated its
value in providing SAP access and data security.”
– Bülent Kaçmaz, CTO, FC
Fenerbahçe
