Compliance with RBE Plus
IT compliance figures high on corporate agendas. These days employees are storing, editing and sharing ever increasing volumes of data in SAP systems. Our RBE Plus analyses are essential tools that support your company in complying with laws and regulations, and documenting this compliance. What’s more, we’ll help you review and restructure your authorization concept and tailor your licensing concept to your specific needs.
Security and compliance requirements are increasing, but managing access authorization is tricky. Problems must be detected and remedied immediately.
This reckless distribution of authorizations gives employees access to activities in the system that they don’t need and shouldn’t have – and worse still, this access cannot be reliably monitored. Besides negatively impacting business processes, indiscriminate distribution of authorizations can result in massive breaches in data security, not to mention unwarranted costs.
RBE Access analysis helps you:
- establish authorization management that conforms to your company’s needs and meets compliance and security requirements
- ensures that employees’ physical and network access matches current task profiles and activities
Cutting costs by regularly checking licenses against user activities and reassessing the need for purchased licenses.
When system configuration does not reflect real needs, you’re at risk for over-licensing. But assigning licenses based on actual system usage requires periodic reviews and reassessment of licensing needs. Thanks to RBE Plus, this is simple.
The analysis makes it easy to fit users with the proper number and types of license. What’s more, it reveals shortcomings in your current licensing strategy and points out how to improve them.
Access to company-critical data must be strictly regulated and mutually incompatible functions segregated.
The SoD analysis helps you:
- to segregate functions to comply with internal and external regulations.
- to check activities executed
- to proactively review and detect breaches enabled by employees’ access authorizations
License verification will be authorization based – are you ready?
Up to now the usage – i.e. the actual executed transaction and table access – determined the price for licensing SAP users. However, in the future the full potential scope of functions is said to be it, whether actually used or not. This means that the full scope of functions is going to determine the license type and therefore the cost of an SAP license. This is SAP’s plan anyway.
This procedure already becomes apparent in the actual version of the SAP verification tool USSM 2.0. We know from our project experience that many users have numerous dormant authorizations (and unneeded user licenses for that matter) in their authorization roles which they usually don’t use. With SAP’s future plan this can be quite expensive for you. Therefore, take care of your SAP licenses and user authorizations as soon as possible.
Get in touch with us. We are happy to help you find out which authorizations your users really use and need. You shouldn’t pay more than necessary!
