Security

We understand the key security challenges faced by organisations using Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle ERP Cloud include:

 

  • Oracle ERPs have more than 10,000 options that can be set, but Oracle provides limited guidance on which of these enforce good practice security
  • Security policies are inconsistently applied in both EBS and ERP Cloud – some controls are set system-wide, some can be overridden for individual users and some have to be set on a user-by-user basis
  • Both Oracle EBS and Oracle ERP Cloud is insecure by default and have a number of security loopholes that give unexpected user privileges
  • Both Oracle EBS and Oracle ERP Cloud have very limited security reporting by default. There is nothing to even answer basic security questions such as ‘who are my systems administrators?’

 

This is why we offer on site consulting services to help you design and implement best practice security controls into both Oracle and its supporting processes, along with our unique and bespoke Access Analytics service
