3 Ways ControlPanelGRC Is Changing SAP Compliance for ITSAP security and compliance is the foundation your enterprise landscape rests on. Neglect it for too long, let a few too many cracks develop, and it can all collapse. If you’ve been struggling to get your SAP landscape up to code, ControlPanelGRC might be just what you need. On October 18th, 2017, we held our second annual SAP Security & GRC User Summit to network, teach and learn from our community. Here are just a few of the ways ControlPanelGRC is changing SAP Compliance for IT professionals and end users.

 

  1. SAP Fiori Risk Analysis & Remediation

     

    Everyone is eager to move on from the menu-dragging world of SAP GUI to the slick, modern interface of SAP Fiori. However, with all the excitement, most companies have failed to recognize some major compliance issues.

     

    Fiori handles access differently than SAP GUI does. Instead of granting authorizations to transactions, Fiori uses service authorizations. Unfortunately, other SAP GRC software doesn’t look at service authorizations, which can leave Segregation of Duties (SoD) conflicts undetected.

     

    ControlPanelGRC is the first product that provides total SoD detection, both in Fiori and SAP GUI. That means you don’t have to worry about undetected SoD conflicts jeopardizing your compliance efforts or increasing internal risks like fraud and inaccurate record keeping. With ControlPanelGRC, you get all of the benefits of Fiori without any added risk.

 

  1. Putting Cloud IT Security and SAP Compliance Together

     

    SAP security and IT security have traditionally been separate domains. SAP security controls user access and behavior from the inside, while IT security protects you from external threats. But in the cloud age, the barrier between the inside and outside of your landscape is much more tenuous — and security and compliance professionals need to adapt.

     

    Symmetry has partnered with Onapsis, an industry leader in IT security research and protection, to offer a complete SAP security and compliance solution. Using ControlPanelGRC along with Onapsis’ security platform, we’ve created a complete security and compliance package. Rather than creating their own complex, patchwork solutions, companies can rely on a single team handling everything from SoD remediation, to audit readiness, to detecting and neutralizing internal and external threats. That dramatically reduces risks, cuts costs, frees up your internal team to focus on strategic goals and supports continuing security and compliance improvement.

 

  1. A Compliance Team That’s as Accessible as the Software

     

    The IT risks your business faces don’t leave at 5:00, and your support team shouldn’t either. As a leading managed services provider, Symmetry offers you direct access to SAP compliance and managed services professionals around the clock.
