Security Administrators Get the Data They Need When They Need It
AT A GLANCE
Streamline Authorization Requests and Eliminate Research Headaches Authorization Help from Security Weaver reduces the time and energy security administrators spend to resolve access issues. Authorization Help enables both IT teams and end users to be more productive because it automatically captures and shares contextual information, determines the most appropriate roles to be assigned to users, and recommends to both IT and end users peers and model users who currently have the required access.
Increased Productivity: Authorization Help dramatically reduces the frequency of issues and the time needed to resolve them by capturing relevant information, including both error messages and user activities, and then recommending courses of action to both security administrators and end users. Rich data automatically collected and consistently formatted allows for faster identification of the exact access issue and less disruptive communication between IT and users.
Improved User Satisfaction: Too often security policies delay operations. Authorization Help recommends peers in the user's department who have the necessary access, allowing users to get pressing work done in parallel with having their access request processed. Authorization Help is also intelligent enough to hide peer recommendations when the request would constitute a segregation of duties (SOD) conflict or sensitive access.
Improved Role Design and Reuse: Authorization Help's model user identification and role recommendations allow administrators to quickly determine if there is an existing role that would appropriately solve an access issue. These recommendations, coupled with the robust data automatically collected by Authorization Help, increases role reuse, reduces testing issues, and facilitates role design improvements.

Reduce the time, complexity, and costs of authorization testing
AT A GLANCE
Efficiently address authorization issues before they get into production Validation Workbench from Security Weaver reduces the time it takes to test authorizations and roles while simultaneously improving control over access in production systems. It is an ABAP solution that runs within the SAP environment and thus requires no additional hardware, middleware, or special maintenance skills.
Avoid the tedious and time-wasting requirements associated with authorization testing Access issues can be showstoppers for a business and can determine how users judge the quality of IT. Because complex role designs and missing role assignments are often the reasons behind access issues, they are on the critical path for solving access related problems.
However, because role designs and assignments are considered configuration items, any changes to them need to follow a proper release process, regardless of the time required. For those IT teams who wish to minimize highly visible access issues, authorization testing is mandatory.
However, testing is expensive and can create its own challenges. For example, even before authorizations and roles can be tested, a test environment must be created. This requires creating test user accounts across systems, establishing passwords that must be changed by testers, and then remembered, reset, and synchronized across systems throughout the testing period. Further challenges arise because of the constant need for communication and coordination between IT operations teams, security teams, and the end users doing the testing. Communication and coordination are hindered, schedules delayed, and tests skipped because of the inevitable ambiguity of what is in scope to be tested, the tediousness of some tests, and the lack of a single repository for reporting status and capturing issues.
