Flow International Simplifies SOX Compliance Efforts with Fastpath
“Having Fastpath Assure has been a lifesaver. There are some native security reports available in Microsoft Dynamics AX but without Fastpath’s capabilities, it would have been a painful, time-consuming process. We were especially pleased that Fastpath was able to address additional items required by our auditors that were not part of the standard delivered rule-set and directly map the rules from our previous ERP to Microsoft Dynamics AX.”
Using Fastpath tools designed for Microsoft Dynamics AX, Flow International was able to simplify their SOX compliance efforts while maintaining strict security standards, ultimately saving time and audit costs. Flow designed their security model around their business. Like many public companies, the auditor is not always involved in the security planning and must decipher any potential separation of duties conflicts after security is already configured.
SOD controls exist both to limit malicious behavior and to limit accidents caused by human error. This is done through the pragmatic implementation of checks and balances designed to reduce risks to an acceptable level. Using Fastpath to quickly and easily analyze Microsoft Dynamics AX for potential separation of duties (SOD) conflicts, Flow International was able to eliminate the manual process of reconciling security reports. Fastpath provided the company a comprehensive, interactive tool to identify all SOD conflicts within Microsoft Dynamics AX and better understand security. The company was able to provide the necessary reports to both internal and external audit teams.
Fastpath also provided a work flow module that allowed staff to propose, approve and implement resolutions and mitigations throughout the audit process, as well as communicate these changes through reports and automated email. “Having Fastpath has been a lifesaver. There are some native security reports available in Microsoft Dynamics AX but without Fastpath’s capabilities, it would have been a painful, time-consuming process,” Zuniga added.
Fastpath’s flexible framework offers customers like Flow International the information that they need without requiring drastic changes to their business process. “We were especially pleased that Fastpath was able to address additional items required by our auditors that were not part of the standard delivered rule-set and directly map the rules from our previous ERP to Microsoft Dynamics AX,” he said. Fastpath’s tools and knowledge allowed Flow International to get the most from their new ERP environment while getting their auditors the reports and output that they need quickly and easily.
