Managing ERP Systems Like SAP ECC And PeopleSoft Can Be Challenging
Managing user authentication, role provisioning, ensuring policy enforcement, and working with audit teams can lead many administrators to feel they lack the control and visibility required to effectively manage their systems.
However, with the right tools and technology, setting up a strong security and compliance framework can be achieved.
Challenges In The Modern Business Environment
Mobile access to ERP systems means data security risks can originate from both inside and outside your secure network. ERP systems only offer access controls that are static and roles based. Meaning, the context of access does not dictate what someone can view. Thus, aligning a security posture around best practices like least privilege and zero-trust becomes impossible. Native ERP logging features only offer high levels of visibility. These features do not provide granular access information that can be used for threat prevention, remediation or compliance audits.
How Appsian Can Help
Appsian enables you to strike the perfect balance between data security and user productivity. Integrate stepped-up, fine-grained security (ex. MFA, masking, click-to-view) and strengthen access controls that leverage contextual attributes. With real-time data access monitoring, you are better equipped to detect and respond to security incidents.
Enhanced logging capabilities enable you to track all access attempts, so you can take precautions wherever required.
Policy-Based Data Protection
Implement data masking in SAP using a single, one-to-many policy enhancement. Dynamically enforce data masking and data exfiltration rules based on context to protect data in high-risk access scenarios
Preventive Business Process Controls
Enforce business rules with a technical control that can set limits at the field level, consider previous activity, and minimize reliance on manual compensating controls
Risk-Aware Dynamic Authorizations
Align controls to real-world risk by extending authorization logic to include contextual attributes such as IP address, location, time of day, previous activity and more
Data-Centric Analytics & Continuous Monitoring
Combine granular insights with enriched processing to capture the information you want, when you want it – without the noise or manual effort
