SAP Access Control

Why SAP Access Control?

Because the software lets you move beyond manual processes for managing access risk. SAP Access Control can help you automatically detect, remediate, and ultimately prevent access risk violations, regardless of industry or business size. Get real-time visibility into your current risk position, and confidently reduce unauthorised access, fraud, and the cost of compliance.

  • Automatically detect and remediate access risk violations across SAP and non-SAP systems
  • Embed compliance checks and mandatory risk mitigation into business processes
  • Empower users with self-service, workflow-driven access requests and approvals
  • Automate reviews of user access, role authorisations, risk violations, and control assignments
  • Efficiently manage super-user access controls with a centralised, closed-loop process
  • Create a comprehensive audit trail of user and role-based access control activities
