Included Capabilities

Identity Management

Manage user access to applications securely and efficiently

Ensure that all business users have fast, secure access to applications with identity management solutions from SAP. Our software provides a central mechanism for provisioning users in accordance with their current business roles. It also supports related processes, such as password management, self-service functionality, and approvals workflow. With efficient management processes, you can implement business-driven, compliant, and corporate-wide security solutions.

  • Lower IT support costs and reduce risk with centralized identity and access management
  • Boost productivity with self-services such as automatic password reset and rules-driven workflows
  • Increase flexibility with standards-based functionality that seamlessly integrates with business processes
Authentication Management

Reduce risks and costs associated with multiple authentication processes

Enable employees to log in to all applications from their initial authentication with single sign-on (SSO) software from SAP. With a comprehensive SSO solution, you can cover basic authentication requirements as well as the most sophisticated security needs, such as digital signatures and encryption. For cloud-based applications, our cloud identity service enables authentication and SSO for SAP and non-SAP cloud-based applications and deployments.

  • Increase productivity by allowing users to log in once to gain access to all of their accounts
  • Ensure confidentiality through reliable, standards-based encryption during data transmission
  • Protect against cybercrime using smart cards, two-factor and risk-based authentication, digital signatures, and encryption
Access Control

Automate access control and enforce governance

Streamline the process of managing and validating user access to applications and data – with SAP Access Control. Our access governance software automates user provisioning and can help you certify access, embed preventative policy checks, and monitor reviews of emergency access activities – all with minimal support from IT.

  • Automatically detect and remediate access risk violations across SAP and non-SAP systems
  • Embed compliance checks and mandatory risk mitigation into business processes
