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.

Varonis Data Security Platform

For sure it is well suited for companies that need to keep track of their data and that are willing to pay for it. It does an excelent job of monitoring the file's access, with zero impact on Storage's performance. Sometimes it is not enough to be able to restore the data. Sometimes in critical incidents, managers and heads demand to know who caused it. Thanks to Varonis we were able to give them this information easily and in a short time.

Pros

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

SAP NW Identity Management

  • 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.

Varonis Data Security Platform

  • Some of the reporting interfaces are difficult to navigate and appear somewhat dated.
  • This software does require a lot of servers to be built for various purposes.
  • Varonis is on the pricey side and now requires subscription based licensing. This can present problems is your company tries to use very little OpX spending vs CapX.

I wish the cost was a little bit lower and increase functionality and features would give it 10/10.

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.

Support has always been very responsive and addressed any issues we may have had in the past. Some local engineers are willing to come onsite or work over a web session to discuss creating a new rule set or look at some issues. Getting issues address has never been a problem. There was one feature we had trouble getting to function correctly, but support and local engineers were willing to work with us as much as needed to get it working correctly for our organization.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Varonis Data Security Platform

Actually, we didn't expend much time evaluating other file auditing platforms. We chose Varonis just after a serious incident and we had already heard about Varonis at a Netapp event. So it was an easy choice. We called Varonis and asked them for a PoC, that's it. The PoC became a production and it is running until this day.

Return on Investment

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.

Varonis Data Security Platform

  • Positive: Audit carried out using much less time and people.
  • Positive: Organizational and management reports with information surveys.
  • Positive: After analyzing the FS, the cost went down a lot because we excluded repeated and unnecessary files from it.
