Automated Security & Access Controls Through the Cloud
[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Executive Summary”]
Organizations face increased pressure to ensure business applications such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are secure and access control risks are managed in the context of a dynamic business environment. Segregation of Duties (SoD), inherited rights, critical and super user access, and changes to roles are too much for today’s organization to manage adequately in manual processes involving spreadsheets, documents, and email as they are time-consuming, prone to mistakes and errors, and can leave the business exposed. By automating access controls, organizations take a proactive approach to avoiding risk while cutting down the cost and time required maintaining controls, being compliant, and mitigating risk. However, automated access control/SoD solutions are known to be exorbitantly expensive and take a considerable amount of consulting resources and time to implement. ERP Maestro is an innovative access control/SoD solution that GRC 20/20 has researched that takes a cost effective approach by using the cloud to make automated access control/SoD efficient and agile as well as effective. ERP Maestro has proven that it is as or more effective in access control and SoD as its competitors but it does this at a fraction of the cost to implement and maintain.
