The Fastpath Assure Access Review module pulls user
To keep your Dynamics GP environment secure, it is necessary to regularly analyze user access. These security access reviews should specifically report user access to sensitive areas of your system, areas allowing a user the potential to commit fraud, misstatements, or errors. Performing these access reviews in Dynamics GP can be very time-consuming when done manually, making them difficult to perform regularly.
With the Access Review module, these processes can be done regularly, quickly, and automatically. The module pulls the access data from Dynamics GP and can report based on user, role, or access point. The module includes out-of-the-box report templates for reviewing critical areas of access in Dynamics GP. Reports can be scheduled and automatically shared for assessment and sign-off by executives.
Tracking changes in Dynamics GP is an essential part of maintaining security. With numerous changes happening through daily business processes, it is important to catch errors quickly. Change tracking is one of the easiest ways to catch fraudulent transactions. The native Dynamics GP activity tracking tool allows you to do the basics but is limited and unable to report things such as before and after values. Furthermore, any change tracker tends to slow system performance via fighting for server access and taking up storage space.
The Fastpath Assure Audit Trail module tracks key changes in Dynamics GP configuration settings and data values, reporting when and by whom modifications are made.
The Audit Trail module expands on the activity tracking capabilities of Dynamics GP, identifying changes made in GP as well as changes made by add-on applications and modifications made directly to Microsoft SQL, all with minimal impact on system performance. Audit Trail also provides before and after values to assist in error and fraud correction
Audit Trail comes with out-of-the-box tracking templates developed by Fastpath’s team of certified auditors to help you track and document critical data changes to your system, including:
Fastpath Config AD merges security between Dynamics GP and Active Directory for efficient IT management.
A strong password policy is the most basic level of system security, and arguably the most important. The issue some businesses have is the number of passwords needed for employees to do their job. More passwords mean lowering user productivity by increasing the steps in performing tasks. Further, it can create more work for IT support when it comes to lost passwords. To solve this issue, Microsoft recommends utilizing a single
Fastpath Config AD supplies the option for SSO between windows active directory and Dynamics GP. This allows you to seamlessly enforce windows password policies for GP users as well. Along with SSO, Config AD supplies a better way to perform secure user provisioning by taking the process out of Dynamics GP and minimizing the need for admin access.
The Segregation of Duties (SoD) module in Fastpath Assure assesses user access in Dynamics GP for existing risks, allowing for conflict mitigation.
To maintain the security of Dynamics GP, it is necessary to separate permissions between users so no one has too much access. For example, you wouldn't want a user to be able to create vendors as well as pay those vendors, as they could make themselves a vendor and pay themselves as necessary. The ruleset maintaining this SoD can be an integral part of Dynamics GP security, but creating it can be difficult, and applying SoD to your user access for review can be even harder. Every business must be able to recognize the potential risks existing in Dynamics GP user access and roles to mitigate any conflicts.
The SoD module has a customizable ruleset, built specifically for Dynamics GP, is included with over 100 built-in conflicts. The SOD module pulls user
Fastpath Config AD integrates GP and Active Directory for efficient IT security management. GP security is a silo disconnected from the rest of the organization's security. It doesn’t have to be this way. Fastpath Config AD gives a company's administrator the option to connect GP users to Active Directory (AD) users and GP roles to AD groups. This makes it easy to assign GP security in a way that is familiar to the IT department. Running security through Active Directory reduces your access risk further by removing the need for an 'SA' role in your GP instance.
Security Via AD
The Identity Manager module allows easy modifications to access requests and approvals, including the automation of start and end dates.
You may find the unexpected happen, and when urgent short-term projects suddenly pop up, you’ll often need to grant emergency or temporary access to certain users that normally wouldn’t be allowed. When needed, you should be able to grant this access quickly without sacrificing security, but in most cases, the manual approval process for access requests in GP doesn't allow for both speed while managing risk aversion.
With Fastpath Assure Identity Manager you can easily make access change requests and automate the approval process for quicker deployment. Use this for planned temporary access as well, such as vacations. You can set both start and end time, based on the specific needs, and Identity Manager will report any SoD conflicts existing in the new access so risk can be minimized.
