Appsian Security Unveils Cloud Platform for ERP Access Management, Data Loss Prevention and SoD

By CIOReview | Tuesday, October 5, 2021

This important launch highlights a significant expansion of Appsian Security capabilities, along with their ability to offer critical ERP security and compliance in the cloud.

FREMONT, CA: Appsian Security, an ERP data security and compliance provider, unveiled a unified GRC platform designed to automate ERP access governance, identity governance, user provisioning/de-provisioning, and segregation of duties (SoD). The platform is meant to make managing important governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) operations like managing user access, minimizing business process risks, and securing sensitive data easier and more automated for SAP, Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, and other customers.

“For ten years, Appsian Security has built our reputation on protecting ERP data. But what we realized our customers were also needing was a more streamlined approach to managing segregation of duties and mitigating their business process risks,” said Piyush Pandey, CEO of Appsian Security. “By releasing our platform in the cloud, we are able to provide tremendous value through rapid implementation and easy configuration – all with functionality that is simply unmatched in the IGA and GRC markets. In addition, our proprietary automation features will play a critical role in helping our customers streamline their compliance processes.”

“An increasing number of customers are viewing identity, access management, and data security as interconnected components of an effective risk management strategy,” said David Vincent, VP of Strategy and Customer Experience at Appsian Security. “We couldn’t agree more. The truth is, ERP compliance initiatives have historically been managed using manual, error-prone processes that have IT, security, and compliance teams operating in silos. Our goal is to bring these groups together with a single cloud platform that helps everyone achieve their core objectives—which is maintaining the integrity of sensitive data and financial transactions.”

To improve GRC support for the ERP market, Appsian Security focuses on assisting customers with managing and enforcing SoD across one or multiple ERP applications. The platform can detect SoD conflicts, offer suggestions for mitigation, automate requirements for provisioning, and prevent SoD violations from taking place in real-time. Additionally, data masking can be adopted (dynamically) to redact sensitive data if a user’s session presents a risk.
