More Information



About WASL

HPE Workload Aware Security for Linux (WASL) provides security compliance to industry standards for Linux operating system instances and for SAP HANA workloads.

In addition to server evaluations WASL can perform remediation for any security compliance issue found in the evaluation process. WASL also offers rich reports and log files from which details of evaluation issues found are extensively explained and the remediation steps needed to correct them are provided.

Automating security compliance across your servers and workloads can be as simple as a single-click from a centralized dashboard known as the WASL Security Management Station (SMS).

WASL provides the ability to rollback any remediation done, and restore the workload configuration to a pre-remediation state.

WASL provides default profiles built using an industry standard extensible language so any profile can be customized to meet your security needs. WASL currently provides the following standard profiles for the O/S and the SAP HANA application:

  • OS Security Level 1 for SLES 12
  • OS Security Level 2 for SLES 12
  • OS Security Level 1 for SLES for SAP Applications 12
