Privileged Access Management for SAP withitesys Firefighter
Automated and smooth with itesys Firefighter.
Monitor and manage privileged SAP authorisations seamlessly and compliantly
This has probably happened to you, too: When allocating and managing temporary privileged system access, you suddenly need to assign an emergency role for extended IT system access (SAP/non-SAP), for example as part of a substitution arrangement. Depending on the situation, this is not or inadequately documented, there’s a lack of emergency user concept, and it can even happen that a user is assigned with full authorisation (SAP_ALL) due to the rush. Then, in day-to-day business, no one thinks to revoke this role again, and the monitoring of the activities of privileged users is also incomplete. This can have consequences such as unregulated and unlogged system access, which poses significant risks.
Our solution: itesys Firefighter!
This can be prevented with itesys Firefighter, a dedicated solution developed by itesys based on SAP Identity Management. It simplifies and speeds up the allocation of time-limited and dedicated privileged authorisations, for example for SAP S/4HANA, SAP AS ABAP, SAP AS JAVA, SAP Fiori, SAP HANA database or Active Directory. In the process, itesys Firefighter automatically and efficiently manages these authorisations from approval to revocation and enables checking for critical activities. In addition, itesys Firefighter monitors the activities of privileged users for the entire IT landscape (SAP/non-SAP) seamlessly and documents them in compliance with guidelines and audits. In this manner, both business continuity and security are ensured – a real added value for your company.
