The SAP App Center, launched in September 2016, offers customers a modern user experience to browse and discover innovative solution use cases and extensions for their existing SAP application landscapes, including S/4 HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Business One and SAP Hybris. SAP Certified apps like Access Analyzer are highlighted separately in the SAP App Center as solutions that are trusted by SAP to integrate with or enhance SAP business applications.

Automating access controls – specifically segregation of duties (SoD), sensitive access, emergency access and provisioning – is one of the more complex challenges facing SAP clients who must manage risk and security in their SAP ERP environments. Tougher audits and increased scrutiny by external auditors in demonstrating completeness and accuracy of the controls only add to the pressure to automate. Currently, ERP Maestro Access Analyzer is the only solution in the SAP App Center that addresses these challenges.

“Our organization decided to implement ERP Maestro after an exhaustive look for a solution to our on-going challenges around SoD and Privileged User Access,” wrote Jeffrey Davis, an Associate Director of Governance, Risk and Compliance via a review of Access Analyzer on the SAP App Center. “Due to our size and complexity, we were looking for a solution that was both flexible and scalable…we were able to implement the client within days and configure our custom ruleset shortly thereafter. Within the first year of using ERP Maestro, we were able to reduce the number of SOD conflicts by 40%, and provide to our business leaders a clear picture of our risk exposure.”

“We are excited to be included on the SAP App Center as a certified and trusted solution that visualizes access risk within hours, assists in remediation and redesign of security, and automates controls that ensure security risk is managed effectively,” said Jody Paterson, CEO and Co-Founder of ERP Maestro. “We look forward to extending our reach through this valuable platform and making it even easier for SAP clients of any size to improve access security.”
