With the majority of Oracle and SAP ERP customers recently experiencing a breach, it has become evident that these system pose unique challenges. In order to safeguard these systems from the myriad of internal and external threats that try to exploit them, organizations must enhance their Access Controls, Compliance & Audit, and Threat Protection strategies. Fortunately, Appsian can help.
Managing ERP access with static roles and permissions is not effective at preventing unauthorized data access. Why? Because static rules do not consider the context of access. Appsian can enhance your (current) static rules by implementing (additional) contextual, attribute-based rules that enable you to have full control over data access – who, when, where, why, and how.
Understanding who accessed what data inside ERP systems is a manual, time-consuming task that is not effective for audits or threat remediation. This is because native logging features were designed for system troubleshooting – not forensics. Appsian’s powerful logging and analytics provide detailed access information that give you the actionable insights needed to swiftly respond to threats and automate compliance & governance audits.
Today’s security threats include phishing, brute force attacks, privilege misuse, and unauthorized data exfiltration – all of which frequently occur inside traditional ERP systems. This is especially true with systems that are exposed to the open internet. Appsian enables you to enhance your systems with the security and compliance features required to combat these threats – and mitigate the myriad of risks that threaten your data.
ERP investments are years (and millions of dollars) in the making. ERP migrations and large-scale ‘ripe-and-replace’ projects are disruptive to business operations. Appsian gives you the power to leverage your current ERP investment by enhancing your systems, so you can achieve the access control and visibility required to combat modern security and compliance threats.
With Appsian, you can achieve a lower total cost of ownership over the life of your ERP systems.
