Secure Your SAP Data with HSPD-12 Multifactor Authentication

Power LogOn® Enhances Information Security of SAP® Data – Capabilities Study

HSPD-12 SAP DATASAP is the market leader in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solutions that include customer relationship management (CRM), product life management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM), supplier relationship management (SRM), and more.  SAP applications and services enable over 197,000 customers to operate profitably, adapt continuously, and grow sustainably.  With all that valuable and sensitive information, an IT administrator’s other concern is securing it to HSPD-12 compliance levels. 

Access Smart believes that for information security to be effective, it must never be cumbersome for the employee to use; otherwise, productivity decreases and eventually, security is compromised.  Passwords are still the most cost effective way to authenticate access to computer data.  However, employee managed passwords are the weakest link.  Access Smart’s Power LogOn is a multifactor, password manager solution for cyber access control that enables Information Technology (IT) administrators to secure and centrally manage all employees’ passwords.

 Implement HSPD-12 Government Privacy Compliance Regulations:

Strong, multifactor authentication for logical access has never been more important than now.  In many heavily regulated sectors like government, healthcare and finance, the government has legislated privacy protection.  By law, businesses, institutions and agencies must protect their customer’s personal information and IT environment from unauthorized access.  All these laws recommend two-factor authentication to secure data.  Since SAP manages most of this information, care must be taken that employees don’t circumvent security practices for their own convenience by writing password on sticky notes or using the same password everywhere.  Employee managed passwords can result in hefty fines for non-compliance of these privacy laws.
