bioLock™ for use with SAP® ERP - powered by Fujitsu PalmSecure

bioLock PalmSecure

bioLock for use with SAP ERP - powered by Fujitsu PalmSecure helps to protect business data and prevent fraud with granular biometric user authentication for systems running SAP software. Integrated with traditional SAP system security including single sign-on and SAP solutions for governance, risk and compliance (GRC), bioLock for use with SAP ERP - powered by Fujitsu PalmSecure identifies users by the unique pattern of blood vessels in their palm to control login to critical SAP systems including human resources, customer relationship management, supply chain management and finance software, retail point-of-sale systems, as well as the HANA platform. Biometric authentication even allows for secure access to SAP systems from shared devices. Important or risk-prone activities can be further protected with additional biometric re-authentication checkpoints to ensure that only authorized employees can execute critical transactions. With valantic bioLock ™ for use with SAP ERP- powered by Fujitsu PalmSecure , customizable security checkpoints can be established based on management policies and business rules on a user-by-user basis. These re-authentication checkpoints can be set at very granular levels if needed such as tables, transactions, info types, fields, field values, buttons or whenever a critical activity is performed within SAP. Actions such as exporting data, printing data, saving data, changing data and of course viewing data can all be controlled. This could protect anything involving sensitive data, or large amounts of money, or any mission-critical information that would be of value if stolen.
Existing SAP security, roles and authorizations remain unchanged – bioLock software complements, reinforces and sits on top of existing SAP security and GRC (Governance, Risk management und Compliance). Logging of activities, including errors and violations, are securely logged in a tamper-proof way that is accessible to third-party audit tools on a “read-only” basis. Employees can be enrolled into bioLock for use with SAP ERP – powered by Fujitsu PalmSecure in a few minutes.
Establishing a bioLock user does not override or change existing SAP security settings. Instead, bioLock overlays and reinforces existing security. Use is extremely intuitive so there is no training or learning curve, users simply respond when prompted.

Business challenges

  • Despite SAP’s dominant market position, security is an on-going functional gap
  • Single-authentication SAP passwords are not encrypted; username and passwords credentials at risk
  • Data breaches becoming more prevalent, publicized and costly
  • Data breaches can be difficult to prevent and take time to detect

Benefits

  • Based on industry-leading realtime North America and bioLock™
  • With bioLock security control & monitoring software, breaches can be prevented
  • Dual authentication will require a biometric credential match in addition to a “password”. Password alone is useless
  • Can be used to prevent internal and external fraud
  • Can be used in many different customer service environments and industries
  • With “protected” bioLock solution there will be audit trail, accountability data protection, recourse against abuse and privacy

Fujitsu bioLock™ Overiew

SAP is the global market leader when it comes to ERP systems. However, the sensitive data contained in SAP systems is increasingly coming under attack from external hackers and internal corporate security breaches. SAP passwords are not encrypted by default, making them very easy to obtain. One noted expert in security said, “it is not of matter of if, it is a matter of when, your data will be compromised.” Given this environment, building trust with your customers and your internal or external shareholders has never been more challenging.

Unfortunately, once inside, the SAP system is easy to navigate from department to department increasing your exposure. It does not force users to re-authenticate within a work session, allowing intruders to roam freely with no audit trail or accountability. This dramatically increases the instances of and opportunities for fraud.

Now, SAP users can easily make dramatic security improvements by implementing rigorous sign-on and re-authentication checkpoints throughout a given session. Fujitsu is leveraging their PalmSecure® technology in partnership with realtime North America and their bioLock software solutions, to deliver a dual approach to security called bioLock™. All non-biometric access can be completely eliminated.

Firstly, bioLock, positively authenticates the identity and security level of the user at log on. Secondly, once in SAP, it ensures the user has the security level and approval to continue to conduct transactions within a given area of the system

No matter what industry you are in, biometric re-authentication at all levels is the key to dramatically improving your security in SAP. The bioLock solution enables you to combat fraud in all areas including purchasing, payroll, inventory, retail POS and many more.

bioLock, powered by Fujitsu, allows you to control access to the five important access levels mentioned below.
