Audit Security and Compliance

Ensure compliance standards and reduce complexity with Arbela Audit and Security Manager

Arbela Audit & Security ManagerKeeping your Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance system secure is mission-critical, and most company stakeholders will “spare no expense” to ensure security. But, often times that does not happen until a breach occurs or deficiencies from auditors are handed down.

Today, success in security also means ensuring integrity in your approach to security and its systems so that, in the event of an audit, you’re assured of meeting compliance and regulatory standards: e.g., Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance and conforming to Segregation of Duties (SoD) controls.

Fortunately, there’s a simple way to extend Dynamics 365 Finance that concurrently improves both how you manage security internally, while helping you be proactive and prepared for external audits of security systems and processes: Arbela Audit and Security Manager.

Securely built for Dynamics

Arbela Audit and Security Manager reduces the amount of manual labor required to manage security processes. It also simplifies and automates much of the reporting, which can help to further protect your data, and ensure you’re completely prepared for external audits. You can:

  • Reduce security deployment times by intelligently defining roles and automating steps
  • Have confidence in complete and accurate security and audit reporting
  • Simplify access reviews with persona-based reporting
  • Reduce key staff involvement and free them to do other high value activities
  • Reduce preparation time for audits and reporting with pre-configured Separation of Duties (SoD) and audit trail controls
  • Reduce cost associated with licensing

Arbela Audit and Security Manager is an invaluable tool for managing security in Dynamics. It simplifies the complexity…and is a must have, especially for SOX compliant companies. Further, the support we received from the Arbela team was exceptional. I highly recommend the solution! — Keri Lantz, CPA, Achillion Pharmaceuticals 

Proactive management for Segregation of Duties; simplified reporting

Arbela Audit and Security Manager makes construction of Segregation of Duties (SoD) rules accurate, simpler, and easier. It helps precisely capture access to securable menu items, tables, etc. - where auditors look - that could enable a user to commit fraud, misappropriation, manipulations or material misstatements on financial reports, or other acts of malfeasance, intentional or incidental.

To help with role assignment validation, Arbela created a systematic process that includes SoD rule cross-checks as you setup your security structure. If a violation is detected, a message is displayed and the violation is captured as an SoD conflict to be remediated.

“Built-in” audit prep

Arbela Audit and Security Manager includes built-in security and audit reporting that helps you track changes by name, role, date, time, as well as many other configurable properties. Within the change logs, you’re able to view these historical changes and export and/or print the changes in, for example, the event of an audit.
