Symmetry ControlPanelGRC® Is First SAP® Access Control Platform with Segregation of Duties Rules for S/4HANA and Fiori Applications

Cost-effective and time-saving compliance automation solution provides risk analysis and actionable remediation options for systems using SAP GUI transactions, SAP Fiori applications or both

BROOKFIELD, Wis., Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetry today announced significant enhancements to its ControlPanelGRC® software suite, an industry leader in governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) automation for SAP environments. The updated functionality makes ControlPanelGRC® the first access control platform to offer actionable, out-of-the-box segregation of duties rules for S/4HANA and Fiori applications in addition to existing SAP GUI transactions. As enterprises migrate and transform their infrastructure by moving to S/4HANA, they are realizing it is creating a gap in access controls and unexpected GRC exposure that requires new ways to secure and automate the access controls, compliance reporting, and audit-readiness of their mission-critical SAP deployments.

Addressing the consumerization of IT, SAP Fiori delivers a role-based, simplified and personalized user experience across all lines of business, tasks and devices, including an enhanced mobile platform. In addition, with more enterprises migrating to S/4HANA, the SAP Fiori interface is seeing increased adoption – either as a replacement for traditional SAP GUI transactions or in addition to them. As enterprises integrate SAP Fiori applications into their business processes, they need to update their segregation of duty analysis processes to ensure complete visibility across their SAP environment.

"As enterprises migrate to S/4HANA and Fiori for the performance and improved role-based business user experience, it is creating new challenges for evaluating access controls across the environment due to the complexity Fiori introduces to the SAP Security Model," said Scott Goolik, VP of Compliance and Security at Symmetry. "With this release, our simplified concept for including SAP Fiori Applications into SoD rulesets provides an automated discovery process, captures usage of Fiori applications, and pushes comprehensible segregation of duties data to the appropriate business owners for simplified review and removal as necessary." 

Used by more than 150 companies, Symmetry's ControlPanelGRC® software suite is focused on providing a comprehensive compliance automation solution for SAP environments – including SAP Fiori applications, SAP GUI transactions or both – that doesn't involve a lengthy implementation time or a complicated training program. In addition, Symmetry's SAP security and controls consultants ensure that customers' systems are managed according to industry standards, SAP best practices and auditor recommendations.
