  • Especially if you are working in the banking area, IT workers must use ObserveIT to provide more detailed evidence to audits.
  • You don't need to give a firewall permission to a client, you can easily do it by giving permissions to the ObserveIT server. By doing this, you will be able to understand why he/she needs this permission without asking.

SAP NW Identity Management

SAP Identity Management manages organization identities centrally with a great amount of flexibility and efficiency.Compared to the conventional SAP solution of central user administration (CUA), SAP IDM (version 7.2/8.0) delivers a great number of benefits like:1. Availability of connectors for non-SAP application identity management,
2. Modular/granular access management in the form of context-based business role definition.
3. It can be integrated with the SAP HR system for making entire user identity management automatic.

SAP NW Identity Management

  • In my previous organization, to achieve the granularity of access based on organization restrictions, we implemented enabler role-based security roles. Provisioning the enabler roles through the SAP GRC was a great challenge (realistically improbable). Here came the SAP IDM to our rescue. It has a peculiar feature of context-based business role provisioning feature.
  • Customized context & its association with security roles & user HR attributes, give us unique ability to achieve granularity of access provisioning.
  • SAP IDM integrates with the SAP HR system and identity management becomes automatic.

Cons

ObserveIT

  • You need to make a better optimization work on its database servers. It may cause problems working itself properly.
  • After upgrading its agents, it may give some false positive alerts like "Agent not reporting" while it reporting.
  • Archiving technology must be improved. When you restart that appliance, it needs more tuning on it to make it right.

  • SAP Identity management should come up with connectors for almost all not SAP applications, which will enable the use of SAP IDM as a one-stop solution for organizations' identity management.

It depends on the our needs actually. Audit has big space on our environment, so we need to put anything infront of them clearly. ObserveIT makes it perfectly.

As IDM heavily relies on JAVA/SQL as a development language, finding skills resources sometimes becomes challenging. But SAP has strong support available for this product which makes it reliable for long term use within an organization.

Alternatives Considered

ObserveIT

Forcepoint Insider Threat is a new product and also it supports DLP(we were using Forcepoint DLP), that's why we did trial of this. As I said before, it's a new product on this area and its support level were low, on the other hand ObserveIT vendors gave support when we had a problem. That was the key point on our decision.

SAP NW Identity Management

SAP IDM offers a great deal of benefits/features compared to conventional access provisioning with SAP.
1. Conventional SAP user administration solution like CUA has great limitations. e.g. only SAP systems can be managed. Low-performance issues, unreliable access provisioning, and risk analysis were missing.
2. SAP IDM integrates with SAP GRC solution to perform the reliable risk analysis before access provisioning. Its context feature allows granular access provisioning.

Return on Investment

ObserveIT

  • As I previously mentioned about this, we were able to give more detailed evidence to the Internal/External Audit team. Audit teams were understanding all of the logs better.
  • A new feature with the newer version of it, like UEBA, we can find the riskier users by looking user's suspicious activities. This feature gave ObserveIT more credit on our bank.
  • Actually, there were no negative impacts on our objectives.

SAP NW Identity Management

  • SAP IDM has the huge potential to minimize risks arising out of disorganized identity management within an organization. As all identities are managed centrally, there is very little room for manipulation of an identity.
  • As this solution has the ability to integrate with SAP GRC, risk analysis becomes mandatory before any access provisioning takes place.
  • As the solution is automatic, hiring to employee exits is managed with a minimal margin of error.
