CSI tools: Pragmatic Solutions for SAP Security

Every single day, successful companies are reinventing themselves, resulting in constantly assessing their risk exposure by finding inconsistencies in what people are allowed to do, can do, did and can almost do. CSI tools have developed dynamic analytics tools that deliver intelligence from and to decisions taken in identity and access governance for SAP environments.

CSI tools’ cockpit and engine provide insight into your real vulnerabilities, streamline SAP roles and then delivers practical solutions to improve your risk/security posture, like automated role building and reverse engineering. By transforming data into information, these tools allow you to adjust on demand your risk and security strategies. They use your SAP systems to identify the access governance requirements and allow you to sync them with the SAP systems employed.

While dealing with SAP security, first roadblock is to understand how exactly it works? CSI tools give guidance to simplify this complexity by splitting it into two layers: a governance layer and a technical layer. So that the access governances become transparent, while management can focus on the governance aspects, the technical people can focus on technical layer and get the instructions through the governance layer.
