The SoD module in Fastpath Assure analyzes SAP user access reporting existing risks in your environment.
Undetected conflicts and risks are a company’s worst internal nightmares. That is why an effective segregation of duties (SoD) within users’ access is vital to its health.
Fastpath Assure includes both SoD, and Access Review modules to maintain this segregation and review access to sensitive transactions. By reviewing, analyzing, and alerting you to any potential conflicting duties within your internal controls, these Assure modules ensure access among users is kept at the bare minimum, keeping your company safe from critical access mistakes that could allow undetected fraud and errors.
The Fastpath Assure module, Identity Manager, automates user provisioning from request through approval and implementation without the need for IT.
You wouldn’t just give anyone access to your bank account, so why run the risk of authorizing the wrong users to your company’s sensitive information and transactions?
The Identity Manager module automates the time-consuming process of figuring out who can be authorized to do what, while eliminating the need for IT to manually implement. It also eliminates the hassle of running requests by hand through your various authorizing managers and provides them the necessary SoD analysis to empower those reviews. With the ability to enforce authorization based on department, role, or even risk level, Identity Manager can immediately grant access to the appropriate individuals while saving your company significant time and money.
The Audit Trail module in Fastpath
Information is the lifeblood of a company and you need to know who’s accessing and changing the data in your SAP system.
The Audit Trail module lets you track your company’s critical points of data, giving you the power to catch issues such as mistakes and fraud as they happen so you can save your business both time and money. No matter what the level of
The Fastpath Assure Segregation of Duties (SoD) module assesses user access in SAP based on a customizable out of the box ruleset.
To create a segregation of duties that effectively protects your company from fraud, mistakes, and misstatements, you need a solid ruleset as its backbone. So, what goes into establishing a compliant rule set? Simple, the comprehension of the pertinent laws, regulations, and best practices that secure the many facets of business.
Okay, maybe it’s not that simple.
But that’s where the Fastpath Assure SoD module establishes value. Built by certified internal and external auditors, the SoD module boasts a proprietary rule set built specifically for SAP and includes over 100 conflicts out-of-the-box. Because no two businesses are the same it is a completely customizable tool, so you’ll have the ability to add and adjust the ruleset to fit your specific business, industry, and any regulations it adheres to, enabling you to develop an SoD that keeps your applications secure.
The Identity Manager module in Fastpath Assure now includes SAP Emergency Access, which improves access requests in SAP with start and end date automation.
You never know what’s right around the corner, 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.
Of course, you don’t want to start throwing around new roles and powers like candy.
It is crucial to limit the additional access time such temporary users have to maintain SAP security. With the Identity Manager module and Emergency Access feature, you’ll be able to automate the process of temporary access provisioning (who gets access and for how long) through easy-to-create customizable workflows and access-expiration scheduling.
Fastpath Assure uses SAP transaction data to quantify the financial exposure of segregation of duties conflicts in your SAP environment. Giving a value to your risk conflicts.

How does custom SAP code impact your risk? The Assure Custom Code Analyzer scans all custom programs in your SAP environment and identifies the objects used to ensure completeness and accuracy of your ruleset. The Analyzer then shows you what needs to be updated in your SoD ruleset to reflect these custom transactions. Additionally, just being able to catalog all of these called objects for management and the auditors will transform internal controls and auditor reliance.

Essentially, our Code Checker interrogates the target SAP environment line by line, identifying all objects that begin with Z* and Y*. From there, it will identify if these custom programs call any SAP standard objects to determine if there is indirect, unintended access being granted to users [as well as if the standard objects called are part of the established SAP GRC or Fastpath ruleset].
After the Code Checker Analysis is complete, Fastpath will display the resulting custom programs which can be added to your ruleset via the click of a button.

When defining new roles, it can be difficult to identify every area where Segregation of Duties risk occurs without seeing the role in production. And no one has the time for trial-and-error.
The Fastpath Assure Security Designer for SAP lets users create a new simulation with proposed security changes, analyze those security changes for Segregation of Duties impact, and then publish these security changes into SAP. Use Security Designer to simulate proposed edits to the role and then test those edits to see if the proposed changes reduce the risk for that role. This module requires Fastpath ABAP Bundle 7.
Regardless of your company size, multiple people in various roles are using the system to enter and obtain information. However, that does not mean they all need access to the same information. In fact, it is in the company’s best interest to limit access to users to help prevent fraudulent activity. SAP Access Controls can prevent this type of fraud by providing everyone with the minimum rights they need to do their work, and nothing more.Read More
