Thousands of organizations worldwide rely on the SAP ERP system for their daily business needs. If SAP is deployed on Windows Server, Microsoft Active Directory can be easily configured to centrally manage user authentication and access control. However, when SAP is deployed on AIX, HP-UX, Solaris or various Linux distributions, end-users are often required to enter their credentials every time they access it. They may even have multiple SAP usernames and passwords to access different modules owned by separate business units within their organization.
In such environments, end-users, corporate IT managers, and SAP administrators feel the pain every day. End-users, frustrated by having so many usernames and passwords to remember, may write their login info down so they can refer to it later, exposing the company to security breaches should these details fall into the wrong hands. Administrators are burdened with provisioning and de-provisioning accounts, and for resetting passwords and managing account lockouts. SAP represents one more group of identities that needs to be managed locally, requiring labor-intensive administration that can compromise security. Without centralized management of user accounts and identity policies such as the password policy, regulatory compliance is also more difficult to achieve.
In this webinar, Corey Williams, Centrify Director of Product Management, explains how Centrify DirectControl for SAP addresses these challenges by leveraging your existing Active Directory infrastructure to deliver single sign-on and centralized identity management for your SAP ERP system.
