Application Security

Managing access to your critical enterprise applications, such as SAP, is key to protecting them from internal and external threats. We help clients build robust security measures to safeguard against risks, such as downtime or loss of data.

The problems we solve

Once an afterthought in the implementation of ERP systems, security is now a key concern due to easier access to systems and increased vulnerability. We can help you overcome the typical issues associated with application security. 


Application security by design

We start with role and authorisation design and plan ahead of your implementation to ensure the right security is in place to minimise your application vulnerabilities.


Ensuring you meet compliance standards

We ensure your applications comply with necessary regulations and help your organisation to follow application security best practices.


Remediating identified vulnerabilities

Audits and access reviews often uncover weaknesses and issues within security and authorisation design. We help you take the necessary actions to remediate identified security risks.
