Security for Oracle Financials Cloud

Analyze Critical Data Access

As an online enterprise application, Oracle Cloud allows you easy, on-demand access to your system. So getting easy, on-demand access to critical security features such as monitoring access to your systems, knowing who is performing high-risk transactions and knowing how much access-based risk you have, is imperative. Fastpath is one of the few companies to have developed a solution to answer these needs for Oracle Cloud.

Fastpath Assure® can help you answer three critical questions:

  • Who has access to your Oracle data?

  • Where are the risks in their access?

  • Who has access to modify the chart of accounts, bank account data for suppliers, or process journal entries?

SoD for Oracle Cloud Financials

The Fastpath Assure Segregation of Duties (SoD) module in our cloud-based platform provides concise security reporting, easy to understand segregation of duties reporting, and an automation platform to streamline your periodic access reviews. Fastpath Assure can help you discover:

  • Who can create a vendor and then pay that vendor?
  • Who has access to modify the chart of accounts, bank account data for vendors, or process journal entries?
  • Who is turning approvals on and off, or opening and closing periods?


  • Extensive list of segregation of duties conflicts specifically designed for Oracle Cloud
  • SoD Analysis can be done by User, Role, or Privilege Access
  • Out-of-the-box Business Processes can be customized to fit unique company needs
  • Security reporting by user, table access, or menu access
  • Assists in Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance
  • Intuitive and automated system supports continuous compliance
  • Define custom report schedules (daily, weekly, monthly) and send via Excel or PDF attachment

Who has Access to Your Data in Oracle Cloud?

The Fastpath Assure Access Review module lets you report and sign-off on user access in Oracle Cloud.

Understanding who has access to a company’s sensitive data is fundamental to security in Oracle Cloud, and it can be a challenge to review who has this sensitive access. Often companies need to sift through binders full of reports to narrow down specific areas of access.

Fastpath Assure eliminates that challenge and gives companies the power to easily focus their access reviews in Oracle. By quickly analyzing who has access to critical data at a very granular level, companies can start to reduce the resources and time needed to conduct these reviews on a repeatable basis.


  • Enables compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, and FDA
  • Security reporting by user, role or privilege access
  • Easily save or download custom reports in multiple formats like Excel & PDF
  • Schedule and deliver customized reports to reviewers
  • Automate access analysis for Oracle Cloud

Implement User Access Changes Quickly & Securely

In Fastpath Assure the Identity Manager module streamlines user access requests and approvals, without IT involvement.

User provisioning may be one of the most important aspects of your Oracle Cloud security, which is probably why it seems to take so long for even basic user edits to be approved. Many times, we find the approval process to consist of a tangled web of approvers giving manual sign-offs, before requests end up with IT and sit at the bottom of their support queue. With our Identity Manager module, you gain the ability to automate this process and increase its security.

Requests made in Identity Manager go through a customizable workflow of approvers based on the permissions requested and who is requesting them. The requests can be viewed, approved, or denied from the application or even from the approver’s outlook inbox. With the integration of the Fastpath Assure Segregation of Duties (SoD) module, each request includes a SoD analysis, so risks can be recognized by the requester and each approver prior to decision making. Once approved, the request is automatically applied, without the need for IT.


  • Streamline User Provisioning
  • Visibility into SoD risks during requests and approvals with Assure integration
  • Helps achieve Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance
  • Multi-level management approval structures
  • Schedule Start and Stop times for Emergency/temporary access
  • Require approvals based on requesting user, requested role, requested application, or SoD risk level
  • Comprehensive reporting on requests and approvals

Schedule reviews and Define Owners with Ease

The Access Certification module within Fastpath Assure® will allow you to schedule periodic reviews and sign-off of different types of access: Conflict, Role Assignment, Critical Access, Business Process and Product access. The module will allow you to define owners of the access type for review and schedule reviews for both full access reviews and rolling access reviews.

'Run Now' Capability

Ability to run a schedule on-demand from the ‘Review Schedules’ setup place. This will allow you to create reviews without having to wait until the next scheduled run time.

Export From All Reviews

Enhanced the Export of a review from the ‘All Reviews’ page to now include the Generated Date, Due Date, and Completed Date of the reviewers and review items.

Oracle Security in the Cloud

For companies looking to move to Oracle ERP Cloud, the advantages are many – high scalability, consistent processes, real-time financial reporting, and cost savings from a hosted solution.

These benefits, however, should not obscure the need for a strong application security design aimed to deter fraud and ensure that transactions performed in the cloud are appropriate and authorized.
