The First Software to Actually Solve GRC Conflicts for SAP®: Xpandion’s SoD Conflict Resolver™
Product totally remediates SoD conflicts, allows users to save time, lower costs and easily maintain compliance
Tel Aviv, Israel, February 25, 2014: Companies looking to solve their Segregation of Duties (SoD) conflicts for maintaining GRC will benefit from Xpandion’s new software called SoD Conflict Resolver. While other GRC solutions for SAP only pinpoint SoD violations, SoD Conflict Resolver is the first and only solution in the market that actually solves them. Using behavior-based profiling, the software identifies the conflicts, finds alternate authorizations to replace the ones that are causing the conflicts, and totally eliminates the conflicts so companies can easily maintain GRC. Xpandion offers a free demo of SoD Conflict Resolver.
Developed by Xpandion, Ltd., the leading provider of authorization control solutions in a unified cloud & on-premises environment, SoD Conflict Resolver for SAP and other leading ERP platforms is designed to automate the large, arduous, expensive and often futile task of searching for possible solutions for every SoD conflict. It provides a real solution, which answers the need for implementing a compensating control to a conflict deemed “unsolvable.”
“Seeing so many frustrated customers just didn’t make sense,” says Moshe Panzer, Xpandion’s CEO. “Our mission is to arm enterprises with user activity analysis, so they can act smarter. This is a perfect case where we could give them a complete end-to-end solution to not only identify the conflict and alert about new conflicts, but to also solve it and solve it permanently. Up until now, customers have had to define compensating controls to keep track of conflicts, like reports that need to be approved weekly or monthly. This is tedious work and in most instances extremely time consuming. With SoD Conflict Resolver it’s easy to know for each user which authorization roles to delete and add, the user feels no impact on his functionality, and the conflict is remediated. This makes everyone happy – especially the auditors, the management, and the people that once had to review and approve those weekly activity reports”.
“SAP customers just can’t wait to try out this new tool,” says Danny Lior, Xpandion’s Director of Global Sales. “Using our unique technology based on sophisticated search algorithms and real usage data, we’re the only ones who know how to find the best action plan in order to solve the conflict yet allow the user to continue his duties as if nothing has changed.” He continued, “These days when regulations are getting extra complicated and companies are adding cloud applications to on-premises ones, companies more than ever must find a way to easily and effectively solve conflicts rather than just applying a band-aid. We’ve been sharing our in-depth knowledge about using automation to solve SoD conflicts with leading auditing firms in order to streamline their processes too.”
