Resolution-driven Gap Analysis Reporting

Soterion for SAP performs a Gap Analysis between potential SAP access risk and the actual SAP access risk in your authorization environment. Identifying and resolving this superfluous access is the first step in taking control of your SAP authorization landscape.

The clean-up actions focus initially on the removal of unused access contributing to risk, ensuring significant risk remediation with minimal impact on business.
