TAMPA, Fla., May 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XITING, a long-time SAP Silver Partner, specializing in SAP security software and services, announced today the newest release of its flagship automation and security solution, XAMS, with additional capabilities designed to simplify authorizing users in SAP via machine learning algorithms. The new version also makes it easier for an organization to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union, which goes into effect on May 25th.
Michael Kummer, Senior Vice President of Xiting, explains: "The goal of the XAMS is to reduce the cost and effort involved in keeping SAP systems secure. The XAMS does that by simplifying and automating many of the tasks security administrators have to perform on a daily basis. With the new Support Pack 13, we have taken that approach to the next level by introducing machine learning algorithms, and GDPR watchdog reports to help IT executives with their GDPR compliance efforts."
Latest XAMS features include:
- Machine Learning – Xiting has added advanced capabilities to the XAMS that can automatically suggest role clusters based on usage data. That enabled role administrators to design roles based on the least-privilege principle and without having to involve the business.
- GDPR Watchdogs – Xiting's new GDPR watchdog reports help security administrators, auditors, and IT executives to quickly and reliably identify users who have access to GDPR-relevant data in SAP systems. Using the results of Xiting's GDPR-analysis engine, role administrators can efficiently and rapidly remove GDPR-related authorizations from users and their roles, if necessary.
- License Optimization – Based on SAP’s latest changes to how the company measures licenses, the XAMS provides new reporting and role design functions that take those licensing changes into account. That enables role administrators to make changes to roles and authorizations that can positively impact the organization’s licensing structure.
