Scapa Achieves Full Control Over Segregation Of Duties With Pathlock’s Access Governance Solution
Compelled to address SoD issues within the company – specifically on order to cash and procure to pay processes – Scapa set out to find an affordable solution for long-term monitoring and management. Scapa was discouraged to realize that the market-available options required integration into SAP, long implementation, and SAP expertise. In need for immediate results and concerned of overloading its SAP system, Scapa could not afford a time-consuming implementation process or any change to its SAP system. After searching the market at length, Scapa was finally introduced to Pathlock’s Access Governance solution, which best answered their demands. Pathlock’s solution is installed externally to SAP and requires no SAP consultants or additional expenses other than license costs. Furthermore, it is uniquely implemented within days, delivering immediate results, and offering fully automated processes for achieving full control over SoD violations.
After extensive testing, Scapa chose Pathlock’s solution as its preferred SoD management tool. Following just two days of implementation and training, our solution was up and running, monitoring, alerting, and delivering results as expected. Scapa was able to immediately receive an analysis report of the company’s existing SoD issues, while our access governance solution began learning the actual behavior of all users on all systems. After only a few weeks, our solution delivered continuous monitoring, immediate alerts, and notifications of new SoD violations and high-risk activities throughout the organization. Scapa was able to easily implement SoD on order to cash and procure to pay processes, identifying irregular usage behavior or high-risk profile assignments, and maintaining an overall proactive approach to security and control.
