Appsian To Support SAP by Extending Data Security and Compliance Platform

Most organizations have little control over how users are consuming data in ERP applications,” said Piyush Pandey, CEO of Appsian. “We use context-specific algorithms to comprehensively measure security risk and then deploy adaptive access controls – all while delivering granular logging and analytics that help manage the application at the data and transaction levels.”

By extending support to SAP, it becomes a lot easier to fully and effectively address the major challenge that is often time faced by these customers; data security and compliance. These challenges are often times brought about by the level of complexity that comes with the proper management of protected access in mobile enviroments plus newly required compliant regulations by GDPR and CCPA.

Native SAP security controls are inherently strong, but gaps can quickly appear as organizations allow expanded access to mobile users,” said Rajesh Rengarethinam, VP of SAP Engineering at Appsian. “By applying attribute-based access controls to an organization’s existing role-based access controls, the overall security posture becomes significantly stronger. Also, when the precise context of access can dictate user privilege, risk variables like transaction sensitivity, location, time, and device can be mitigated.”

Part of the features for the newly extended support for SAP ERP applications will include Central Component (ECC) and S/4HANA, both of which will help to proactively monitor and identify intending data hackers.

“By enhancing an organization’s ability to control and better understand data access, the integrity of critical SAP business processes can be maintained,” said Piyush Pandey, CEO of Appsian. “We look forward to building on our success securing Oracle ecosystems, by making our technology available to organizations leveraging SAP because threats are more prevalent than ever.”
