Governance, risk and control (GRC) is key for all organisations; achieving an effective solution can prove challenging as many of the necessary requirements cannot be met by the E-Business Suite itself and additional solutions can be costly and difficult to implement.
For example, security is a complex area within the E-Business Suite with many setups affecting what functions, programs and data users are able to access, including:
As well as changes made to security setups during normal system management these areas can be directly affected when patches are applied or where the environment is upgraded. New forms, form functions and concurrent programs may be introduced by these processes and may automatically become available to some users. It can be a significant challenge to identify what these new components are and an even greater challenge to understand what has been the effect on users’ access to them.
As well as considering access to individual forms, functions and concurrent programs organisations must consider which combinations of access users should not be permitted concurrently; e.g. the ability to enter and post a General Ledger journal within the same ledger. Controlling segregation of duties is a requirement when complying with legislation such as Sarbanes Oxley but is also good practice that should be considered in any organisation.
ConfigSnapshot provides flexible reporting to review all key security setup areas to enable system administrators to keep a vigilant watch over access controls and any changes that might be made.
ConfigSnapshot simplifies managing changes to security settings as a result of applying patches or upgrades, quickly identifying any new items introduced and also which users and responsibilities have inherited access to these items, allowing you to determine any additional access controls that should be defined.
ConfigSnapshot provides a simple and cost effective segregation of duties capability, including:
Through our key partners ConfigSnapshot can provide a comprehensive set of pre-defined segregation of duties rules designed by industry experts.
