SAP Access Risk Analysis — Incorporating Transactional Usage

Soterion for SAP analyses users’ authorisations and incorporates the user’s historical transactional usage data to differentiate between the potential and the actual access risks. This allows business to focus on the real access risk in the SAP environment.

Business-friendly SAP Access Risk Reporting

Soterion for SAP allows data to be viewed from every angle using drag and drop functionality for grouping and filtering. Graphical overviews show the organisation’s access risk landscape, including high-risk areas, in relation to risk tolerance and appetite levels. Reporting on SAP access risks at department level enables business users to take ownership, and become accountable for access risk in their area of responsibility.

Business-Process Flows Reporting

Business process flow diagrams provide more context to the access risk, converting the technical GRC language into a business-friendly language to ensure better decision-making.

Resolution-driven Gap Analysis Reporting

Soterion performs a gap analysis between potential and actual SAP access risk in the authorisation solution, highlighting superfluous risk-bearing access. Removing this unused or inappropriate SAP user access significantly reduces the potential for fraud. Superfluous user access can then be remediated without business interruption and allows business to focus on the real access risk. Unused user access typically contributes to 80% of the access risks in an SAP environment.

SAP Access Risk Clean-up Projection

The risk clean-up projection estimates how much your SAP Authorisation solution can be cleaned up using Soterion for SAP’s methodology. The clean-up actions focus on the removal of unused access that contributes to risk, ensuring significant risk remediation with minimal impact on business.

Risk Clean-up Wizards

The Risk Clean-up Wizards provide clear, step-by-step suggestions on how to reduce access risk. Suggestions include the removal of superfluous allocations, as well as the splitting of roles based on role usage analytics.

User Risk Overview

The risk clean-up project reduces the potential for fraud through the removal of all unused risk-bearing access. This also significantly reduces the effort required by business users to carry out user access reviews. Soterion provides graphical tracking of clean-up progress.

Allocation Simulations and “What-If” Analysis

Soterion’s allocation simulator identifies whether SAP access change requests will introduce new access risk violations. Business users can review the impact and approve these changes using Soterion’s powerful workflow engine, ensuring only approved changes are applied in SAP. This entrenches business buy-in for new risk, and enhances the SAP user change management process through detailed audit logging.
