SAP executives speak frequently about the importance of simplicity in our software. Artist Hans Hoffmann once said “The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
One of the areas that is not known for being simple is the area of security. It is often seen as a roadblock, a barrier, something we just have to deal with. But that doesn’t have to be the case. In a recent study, SAP partner Mobiquity reported that 43% of employees abandon mobile apps. That’s crazy! And one of the biggest reasons why is the barrier added by security requirements. Having to VPN in from a mobile device to connect to an app 10 times a day is, quite simply, silly.
The SAP Mobile Secure team lives and breathes security every day – and our top priority is finding the balance between security and usability. I’ve done a lot of work lately on pairing our SAP Mobile App Protection product with the Mocana Atlas platform to provide secure and straightforward mobile access to SAP mobile apps. We’re tacking the usability issue head on with this technology offering.
One of the key drivers for simplifying the experience is the overwhelming shift our customers are taking to embrace SAP Fiori UX. SAP Fiori UX connects your staff to critical SAP Business Suite applications and provides a truly modern user experience – simple, responsive, and personalized.
Using the Mocana Atlas platform and SAP Mobile App Protection – together with SAP Fiori UX, you can secure your SAP Fiori apps with robust authentication, encryption, and data security protocols. Instead of negotiating numerous authentication screens, users need only sign on once to access the information they need.
