As companies continue to see benefits with digital transformation and utilize all the capabilities inside Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, the area of security is more important than ever. As business processes change and users are introduced to the benefits of digital transformation in their daily tasks and department functions, security around these tasks and functions continues to be critically important to ensure these benefits are realized.
Many times, security is one of the last pieces of a software implementation project to be completed and consequently does not receive the proper amount of time or resources to effectively set up proper controls over company records and assets. Without the right tool and procedures in place for managing user access, controls can be compromised. Errors, intentional or not, can occur, and data privacy and financial risks are elevated.
Security Designer by Fastpath provides a Microsoft Azure-based solution to manage user access and administration efficiently inside Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations. It gives security and IT administrators functional tools that they require as well as a framework designed around the industry. The solution ensures security is easy to set up during a company’s digital transformation journey with Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. With Fastpath Security Designer, company IT teams can easily edit and create roles with an automatic risk review. Starting with the ability to model security changes, they can simulate edits and view where conflicts exist versus where they would exist if changes went into effect.
Administrators can also create multiple security models, and, in turn, be able to decide which model best fits the company’s needs with the lowest possible risk level. Finally, if the implementation of changes is approved, these can be written directly to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, requiring no repeat work, from security analysis to provisioning.
The Fastpath Security Designer is complementary to Dyanmics 365 Finance and Operation’s native security configuration.
