Measuring the actual business value of SoD violations

/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/274571_l_srgb_s_gl_760315.jpgNo matter which industry companies operate in, the rules and regulations are becoming more and more onerous. One of the biggest considerations for complying with them is carefully controlling the access employees have to enterprise systems.

But therein lies a dilemma. Eliminating the risk of non-compliance would mean tying application security down so tightly as to make it almost impossible for people to do their jobs. Yet making it easy for people to work could make it simpler for someone to abuse the system. The question is how to strike the right balance.

The answer, of course, is that a considered decision has to be made by balancing the risk of non-compliance against the impact on productivity. The problem facing most organizations is what they base that decision on. Very few facts about their vulnerability are available to help them. 

Which is why the SAP Access Violation Management application by Greenlight is such a powerful tool. It not only provides clear information about the financial value of access violations it also increases efficiency.

According to statistics taken from customer testimonials*, using SAP solutions, has led to:

  • An 80% reduction in IT personnel time to manage access governance and SoD controls
  • 300 fewer hours spent per month on SoD control monitoring

And objective third-party and SAP benchmarks of other companies indicate the potential annual benefit of using it to be in the region of $3 million–$10 million.

Join our webinar on Tuesday 29th September at 3.00pm CEST to learn how SAP Access Violation Management by Greenlight can help you make better decisions and increase efficiency.
