Tackling Indirect Access
ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor identifies suspicious user accounts that might be used for indirect access by defining third party applications, including related user accounts, inspecting third party applications and point out possible risks for indirect access. ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor provides immediate notifications of new potential indirect access providing ongoing optimization.
Companies can now license indirect access by users or by orders. ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor provides a clear view of the amount of orders allowing organizations to compare if licensing by orders or by users is the most cost effective way to license indirect access. This allows organizations to predict and project future licensing costs more effectively and clearly.
Indirect Static Read
Identify and determine if any indirect usages are due to static read. Since static read users, defined by SAP, do not require any additional licenses, companies no longer need to worry about surprise costs during an audit. ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor has the ability to identify and determine which data was accessed, how it was accessed and if it qualifies as static read.
