Traditional ERP applications fall short of providing the data security and compliance required to combat modern threats. Originally designed for easy access to business processes and data, many ERP applications have developed large gaps in control and visibility that can lead to devastating data breaches. In addition, these gaps lead to substantial financial losses each year, as business policies are not being followed within the organization. The Appsian Security Platform (ASP) is designed for this exact reason. To both retrofit ERP applications like PeopleSoft and SAP (ECC) with advanced data security and compliance solutions, along with enable SAP customers to scale their strategies as they migrate to S/4HANA.
Hundreds of organizations trust Appsian because they can achieve unrivaled levels of control and visibility over their ERP data. Learn more about the Appsian Advantage!
Users demand mobile access, but the exposure of sensitive data can lead organizations to feel apprehensive. Enabling mobile ERP access can pose unique challenges due to compromised user credentials, privileged access management, data exfiltration onto unauthorized devices, managing internal governance policies, and many more.
Traditional network and application security is not enough to mitigate risks when ERP access is ubiquitous. Fortunately, fine-grained solutions can be integrated – thus, enabling organizations to center their security policies on specific data elements. With Appsian, you can enhance user productivity without compromising data security.
81% of hacking attacks involve stolen credentials. After gaining access to a user’s credentials, hackers can move freely inside your ERP application(s). As a result, sensitive information like social security and direct deposit numbers can be stolen with ease. This threat becomes far greater if the intruder obtains a high-privilege credential.
Given traditional ERP applications like PeopleSoft rely primarily on a Username and Password security model, security can be challenging. This is why many organizations are turning to Appsian’s Multi-Factor Authentication and Single Sign-On solutions to enhance the identity and authentication process for PeopleSoft.
Comprehensive Segregation of Duties (SoD) controls are a cornerstone of compliance in ERP applications. Strong governance policies are essential for avoiding conflicts in high-value transactions.
Unfortunately, managing these controls can be challenging because auditing and reporting are typically manual, time-consuming tasks. And maintaining consistent SoD controls can be an uphill battle, as users’ roles and permissions change often. Given the growing volume and complexity of ERP data, current approaches are becoming unscalable and increasingly costly.
As access rules grow in complexity, a (static) roles-based authorization model is reaching its limitations. One-off role derivations have created a “role-explosion” – adding complexity and overhead to role provisioning and management. Enforcing access controls beyond a user’s role, down to a field-value level, requires unscalable customization.
Enforcing governance policies aligned to global trade regulations, segregation of duties, or the segregation of access between different business units requires an attribute-based layer in addition to standard role-based controls.
