Traditional, on-premise ERP applications fall short of providing the data security needed to prevent today’s threats. Security and compliance gaps can lead to expensive data breaches and business policy violations that disrupt your organization and lead to financial losses. The Appsian Security Platform is designed to mitigate risks by enhancing your ability to authenticate users, control access to data, and monitor & respond to potential threats.
That’s why hundreds of organizations trust Appsian to protect the ERP data that runs the core of their business!
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.
