I am proud to announce our collaboration with IBM. This exciting new relationship authorizes IBM to bundle and sell ERP Maestro together with their leading portfolio of enterprise security products and services, globally. We are working with IBM because, together, we can better address the broader problem of cybersecurity threats that come from inside the organization. There’s a reason this is significant: according to IBM Security’s 2016 Cyber Security Intelligence Index, 60% of all cybersecurity attacks were carried out by insiders. With 87% of Forbes 2000 companies using SAP, and 76% of the world's transaction revenue flowing through SAP systems, the potential risk exposure is truly massive.
A couple of weeks ago our team was at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas. This was the first year we participated at this event, and it was quite interesting to see the increased interest and buzz around SAP security. Now, I realize "SAP security" is a very broad term - but it boils down to protecting your precious SAP data two ways: from external AND internal threats. Often the latter is overlooked - and that's why SAP access security is so important. So, if you were asked by your CIO how your SAP access security is looking what would you say? Are you ready for a year-end security audit? Are you ready for GDPR? These are all questions we can help you answer in our next live webcast on Thursday, October 19th.
At ERP Maestro, we truly believe our product is more than just software. Our offering would not be complete without the top-notch service and support we provide – day in, day out, no matter the time zone – to ensure our customers are as successful as possible, quickly as possible with Access Analyzer. Of course, this level of support would not be possible without awesome experts to provide it. In this post, we introduce you to Jay Dhruv, Director of Solution Delivery at ERP Maestro. Certified in SAP GRC, CISA and PMP, Jay spends his days on the front line of technical support resolving issues, onboarding new clients, and above all keeping our customers very happy!
With access audits coming up soon, chances are you’re starting to feel the pressure of everything that it entails – analysis in SAP, extracting reports, auditor requests, and those long, long hours. It’s alot to manage over the course of a few weeks. The good news is that there are things you can do now and during the audit that can reduce the stress and even make the process run much smoother.
