CaoSys Introduces Lightweight Segregation of Duties Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite
CaoSys, a developer of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software announced this week the introduction CS*Comply XE (Express Edition), a new and lightweight Segregation of Duties (SoD) violation detection solution for Oracle E-Business Suite.
CS*ComplyXE enables organizations to quickly and accurately identify SoD violations within their Oracle enterprise applications. The solution performs a deep dive analysis of Oracle EBS to deliver several comprehensive reports that can greatly help with user provisioning and remediation and give visibility of where there is inherent risk within the system from an access control perspective. CS*ComplyXE fills a gap between the company’s flagship SoD solution, CS*Comply which is embedded into Oracle E-Business Suite and their SaaS based SoD offering, CS*Proviso.
Whilst the fully embedded solution (CS*Comply) can offer a lot more in terms of functionality such as preventive controls and other process automation solutions, it does require a lot more in terms of implementation time, training and using the solution day to day as well as associated costs; conversely, a SaaS based offering would typically only be used once or twice a year and so is not as effective as having on-demand access to a solution.
CS*ComplyXE offers some of the benefits of both the embedded and the SaaS based solutions; one of the main benefits is the ability to run a scan against the system as often as is needed, you are not constrained by having a cost associated with each scan as you would be with the SaaS based solution and so if you want to scan the system every month or even every week then you can do so. Furthermore, since CS*ComplyXE is a lightweight solution then it can be installed and implemented in minutes; everything is script driven and so there is no complex user interface to get to grips with, you simply point it at an instance of Oracle E-Business Suite, invoke a single script and CS*ComplyXE takes care of the rest.
Craig O’Neill, CTO at CaoSys said “Organizations need the ability to ensure user access risks in their enterprise applications are identified and remediated in a repeatable and cost effective manner. Often the time and expense associated with implementing an embedded solution is prohibitive and the constraints inherent with a SaaS based offering mean that there is a need for something in between embedded and SaaS; CS*ComplyXE fills this gap in a cost effective manner.”
CS*ComplyXE can be installed on almost any Oracle database including the free to use XE edition. It supports Oracle E-Business Suite 11i and R12 and will be available to customers from August 1st 2012.
