KSI and bioLock Partners on Solution for SAP Security
New KSI + bioLock Solution Provides Superior Access Control for SAP® Logon and Module Functions
An expanded partnership offering end point biometric security for SAP® takes on new importance amid COVID-19
Oakland, CA (May 27, 2020) – Key Source International (KSI) today announced expansion of its partnership with realtime North America, developer of bioLock software, to include a new, robust biometric solution for SAP®.
The pairing of KSI’s 1700 series biometric keyboard with bioLock software is the answer for all organizations seeking password replacement for logon and enhanced security within each SAP® module. KSI + bioLock services over 25 verticals, including financial services, enterprise, government, and healthcare sectors.
Multifactor authentication is achieved using the keyboard’s integrated HID Crossmatch™ biometric fingerprint reader and Windows Hello for logon. Access to the SAP® platform is controlled with biometrics and bioLock software hard coded within SAP® ABAP programming language. bioLock prompts users to reauthenticate with biometrics throughout the day to execute protected SAP® functions. Denied requests prompt instant email notifications that alert system administrators to attempted access.
“Used by governments and multinational corporations around the world, SAP® is more popular than ever,” said KSI CEO Philip Bruno. “KSI + bioLock is well positioned to help protect SAP® customers against insider threats, leaks, and data breaches that have become pervasive and publicized. Our solution also supports compliance with GDPR and the growing number of data privacy laws now on the books that have potential to negatively impact an entity’s bottom line. We couldn’t be more pleased to work with realtime North America to deliver this comprehensive security product to SAP® users.”
The KSI + bioLock solution is particularly important now, in light of the ensuing economic downturn caused by COVID-19 and the strong likelihood of occupational fraud. Security experts agree that corporate entities must remain especially vigilant in monitoring system access from top to bottom during economic instability.
The president of Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the world’s largest anti-fraud organization, explains why COVID-19 presents the perfect storm for fraud. According to Bruce Dorris,
“We can expect not only more fraud to occur, but also more existing fraud to be discovered.” Fortunately, bioLock’s granular biometric controls inside SAP® prevent and identify fraud as described by ACFE.
bioLock was the first biometric solution certified by SAP®, and cannot be circumvented by unauthorized users. Requiring no special training of end users, KSI + bioLock secures shared workstations by providing granular control of SAP® checkpoints – securing high risk, high consequence areas within the platform. bioLock software creates an audit trail of access and attempted access, and protects any defined SAP® transaction with biometrics.
“In seeking technology partners, we collaborate only with those who add tremendous value for the SAP® customer,” said Thomas Neudenberger, COO of realtime North America. “We obviously endorse KSI without reservation as a certified companion product to our bioLock security suite for SAP®. KSI has a brilliant track record in the healthcare sector, with hundreds of thousands of biometric devices in the field. The care that goes into making every KSI keyboard is evident. State-of-the-art and embedded with top-notch components, these security devices provide superior access control and data input routed through a single USB for increased efficiencies and improved workflow for SAP® customers.”
