SAST SOLUTIONS from AKQUINET receives the 2019 IT Security Award.

On October 8, 2019, SAST SOLUTIONS from AKQUINET was awarded the IT Security Award at it-sa in Nuremberg, Germany, the leading trade fair for IT security.

SAST SOLUTIONS from AKQUINET offers customers efficient solutions for protecting their SAP systems. With the governance, risk, and compliance management software, SAST, as the central element of its portfolio, the company is among the leading SAP security providers.

Each year since 2007, the most innovative IT security product is distinguished by the IT Security Award. Companies can apply for consideration in four categories: Management Security, Web/Internet Security, Identity & Access Management and Cloud Security. This year, AKQUINET achieved the highest number of points in the Management Security category with SAST Self-Adjusting Authorizations from its SAST SUITE.

To date, constant optimization of user authorizations has remained a time-intensive process from an IT perspective. In addition, transactions no longer in use are only infrequently removed from the roles. This is a completely avoidable cause of risks related to separation of duties, an unnecessary drain on admin resources and, of course, an untapped source of potential savings for SAP licenses. After applying the self-adjusting authorizations, based on concrete usage analyses, each role contains only those transactions that are truly necessary for performing a business process. Unused transactions are blocked.

“In our authorization projects, we come across users with as many as 500 authorizations on a regular basis. Only 25% of these are necessary. Thanks to SAST SUITE, our customers can identify them. In this way, up to 75% of the current authorizations can be reduced within one quarter,” explained Ralf Kempf, CTO of SAST SOLUTIONS. He added, “Our solution reduces internal efforts, in terms of both time and personnel. As a result, financial efforts are minimized many times over.”

These are the underlying issues that RENK AG, which tested the new tool, wanted to tackle. Frank Schröder, CIO of RENK AG reported, “Just a few weeks was enough to massively relieve pressure on our IT department. In addition, streamlined authorizations have reduced the risk of internal data misuse and allowed us to use concrete work profiles to improve our workflow in SAP.”

SAST Self-Adjusting Authorizations from the SAST SUITE allows customers to implement tailored, fully streamlined roles without putting any restrictions on day-to-day business And, almost without trying, they'll also be in the best position possible for their next SAP license audit.
