Symmetry Announces Security Complete PlusGRC for ERP Environments

New "Audit Ready" Service Combines ControlPanelGRC® Software With Expert SAP Security Consulting Resources Offered as a Flexible Monthly Service

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Jul 12, 2016) - Responding to increasing audit and regulatory requirements for critical business assets, Symmetry, a leading enterprise application management and cloud hosting solutions provider, today announced Security Complete PlusGRC for maintaining security and compliance for SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) infrastructure environments.

The data contained in an SAP environment is the crown jewels of an enterprise, which requires accuracy, protection and ease of accessibility for authorized users. Auditors are tasked with looking for potential risks in your infrastructure, and combining that with a well-developed SAP security plan is essential. Without a plan, security threats arise and businesses can spend days, weeks, even months finding a solution; and performing Segregation of Duty (SoD) checks to remediate threats and maintain compliance can be a daunting task. Reading SoD reports as a non-technical user can be even more difficult, which makes using them for informed business decisions a real challenge.

Symmetry's Security Complete PlusGRC provides continuous security and compliance automation for SAP environments, and significantly reduces the time, operational costs and complexities associated with using in-house resources. The new service offering expands Symmetry's existing security services by combining Symmetry's award-winning ControlPanelGRC® software suite, a powerful and comprehensive governance, risk and compliance (GRC) platform for SAP, along with SAP security and controls experts who become an extension of your team -- together as a flexible monthly service offering for users.

The solution can be implemented in as little as two weeks and does not involve a complicated or lengthy training program. Security Complete PlusGRC ensures that your system is managed according to industry standards, SAP best practices and the recommendations of your auditors.
Key benefits:

  • 24x7x365 expert security and audit-ready compliance coverage
  • Seamless integration to SAP without a large upfront investment
  • Robust reporting tailored to business users, technical users, and auditors
  • Intuitive user interface with exceptional ease of use
