A security audit is a comprehensive assessment of all critical application access and business process controls. Conducting regular audits helps identify SoD violations, access risks, and gaps in security. Audits are also an integral part of meeting regulatory compliance requirements. They enable internal auditors and business managers to gain insights into applications risks and take the necessary steps towards risk mitigation and remediation.
Auditing an ERP system like Oracle EBS for security risks is a complex, time-consuming, and tedious process. Security teams must scan through user roles, authorizations, data access privileges, and usage logs to determine risk factors like Segregation of Duties (SoD) conflicts, master data changes, and security gaps. Conducting an audit manually takes time and resources which not only adds to the cost but also results in longer audit cycles. Even with a large enough budget and team, there is a high possibility of missing something that might cause an audit failure.
Appsian’s audit-as-a-service for Oracle ERP applications uncovers SoD and security control gaps across your ERP applications. The SaaS offering is hosted in AWS with 150 built-in SoD rulesets that can customize to suit your business policies. The audit results are delivered in hours with fewer false positives and deeper insights into security gaps that help prevent financial fraud and compliance violations.
The audit service deploys an agent that runs on your Oracle ERP applications, located on-premises, hosted, in Oracle Cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment. The agent collects security data from business applications such as ERP, encrypts it, and then pushes it to the cloud. The information extracted is limited to security and access rights; no transactional data is uploaded.
It receives and decrypts the data in the cloud, then runs the analysis and produces the reports. Users receive an email notification when the reports are ready, including links to access the audit results. In addition, the results can be viewed by authorized users from anywhere, at any time.
