04 Apr ERP Armor™ Press Release
Greeley, Colorado, April 5, 2019 – ERP Risk Advisors, a practical thought leader for managing ERP Risk, providing content and consulting services related to compliance, security, risk management, and controls, today introduces ERP ArmorTM , a tailored approach to solving customer’s complex compliance and security requirements.
The heart of ERP Armor is the identification and management of risk in a customer’s ERP Solution. ERP Armor blends a proven ERP Risk Architecture with ERP Risk Content developed over 20 years. The solution works with industry leading software applications for Compliance and Security along with a support model of quarterly and annual updates. The approach provides continuous protection for the ERP Solution at both the application and database levels. The core of the intellectual property is ERP Risk Advisor’s design methodology and experience in the integrated design of security and controls.
ERP Risk Architecture
Each customer’s project leverages the proprietary risk architecture, addressing risk through manual controls, applications controls, general IT controls, application security, database security, and overall technical architecture. As a proven risk architecture, it is considered one of the industry’s most advanced solutions for identifying risk and implementing controls for the ERP system.
ERP Risk Content
The architecture leverages pre-seeded content to address application access control risks which allows for a dramatically decreased time for implementation while also using best practices for reducing risk. For example, for EBS there are nearly 1200 SoD Conflicts and Sensitive Access Risks covering over 6000 functions and concurrent programs. For ERP Cloud there are 110 rules covering over 1200 privileges.
ERP Armor is a solution, not software, and benefits customers by coupling both the architecture and 2 decades of expertise by ERP Risk Advisors, with best-in-class industry software solutions for each customer’s specific needs in the area of Compliance, Application Security, and Database Security. Below are quotes from a few of these software, consulting, and technology partners.
