Application Access Governance for SAP Environments and Beyond
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, September 24, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
For many enterprises, SAP systems are an essential part of their corporate IT infrastructure, storing critical business information and employee data. SAP systems have traditionally been a major focus area for auditors. It is therefore essential that all existing SAP systems are covered by an effective solution for managing risks, including managing access controls and SoD controls, and implementing adequate Access Governance.
The ERP landscape, however, is changing. A growing number of critical business systems are moving to the cloud, either to solutions provided by SAP or to other vendors’ SaaS solutions. Thus, the scope for centralized access controls is expanding beyond SAP to a broader range of vendors, systems, and deployment models.
A comprehensive, centralized approach is needed to address access control issues for SAP environments as well as other business applications and cloud solutions to ensure all access risks are covered, especially in the post-Covid era as workforces become increasingly distributed.
This KuppingerCole webinar will cover:
- The changing access requirements for business applications
- Aligning access control solutions with IGA requirements
- How to secure SAP and other business applications using one cloud-based solution
- The value of using pre-configured access controls and SoD rulesets
Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the changing landscape of business applications in organizations adopting cloud-first strategies and how this impacts access control solutions. He also will discuss whether to align such solutions with the overall IGA requirements, and how that might be done.
Yash Prakash, Chief Operating Officer of Saviynt will provide insights into the options and the offerings of Saviynt’s Application Access Governance product that offers in-depth access control capabilities for SAP and other business applications. He will also discuss the advantages of an ERP vendor-agnostic solution that can detect cross-environment access risks and help remediate them.

When it comes to identity management many companies depend heavily on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). This high degree of dependency on one service can become a problem when this service faces an outage. Also, respective of the requirements companies have, all services have certain limitations which are sometimes necessary to overcome. Many cyberattacks are perpetrated via staff endpoint devices (computers, smartphones or even printers). This necessitates a fine-mesh risk management approach with a centralized solution, called Identity Fabric at KuppingerCole.
