NextLabs Entitlement Manager for SAP prevents unauthorized access to sensitive SAP data. The solution extends native role based authorization and enforces finer-grained, attribute-based controls. It identifies and protects data inside and outside of SAP leveraging SAP’s classifications and information about the user. Attribute-based policies enforce proper authorization at runtime utilizing all of the relevant information available – sourced from either SAP or external sources. The policies are managed centrally making changing policies much easier with the ability to enforce on a consistent basis. You do not need to make any changes to the application.
NextLabs Entitlement Manager for SAP ERP integrates with SAP ERP Core Component (ECC) to provide an out-of-the-box solution to data-level access control based on a flexible standards-based policy system. It extends SAP’s role based authorization to enhance access security by utilizing contextual factors or attributes to authorize access to SAP business objects such as Materials, Bill of Materials (BOMs), and documents. It can leverage SAP roles and other SAP and non-SAP attributes for dynamic authorization decisions at the time of request.
The Entitlement Manager for Business Warehouse enables users to secure classified data accessed through the reporting tool for additional data analytics. Fine grained access control is enforced using the same access governance rules that are used for ERP applications. This ensures the same security controls are utilized across all systems for consistency and enhanced protection.
