In this blog I want to talk about SAP HCI related Security questions, customers frequently ask.

SAP HANA Cloud Integration or SAP HCI as most call it, enables you to connect your cloud applications quickly and seamlessly to other SAP and non-SAP application (on-cloud or on-premise).

As more and more customers started using SAP HANA Cloud Integration for Process Integration, lots of questions were asked around security and connections. Setting up a secure connection between a customer system and the integration platform (which is based on SAP HANA Cloud Platform) also requires the cooperation of experts at SAP and at the customer's side.

14.  What is SAP cloud connector (or HANA Cloud Connector) and is it mandatory?

Cloud connector is a complementary offering to SAP HCI. SAP Cloud Connector needs to be installed on premise and is an integral component of HCP. It acts as a reverse proxy and creates a secure tunnel with customer’s own HCP/HCI account. SAP HCI can route calls via SAP Cloud Connector for HTTP based protocols (eg. SOAP, OData IDoc XMLs etc.). SCC is a preferred mode of communication from HCP customers. However it is not mandatory as customer may use other reverse proxy softwares eg. Web Dispatcher.
