Baker Tilly Teams With ERP Maestro

Relationship brings clients new levels of automation, control oversight and visibility to segregation of duties (SoD) program management

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (September 16, 2015) – Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) announced a new solution to serve a growing number of organizations seeking to address challenges in maintaining segregation of duties in increasingly complex environments. The solution, developed by ERP Maestro, helps clients running SAP to automate access controls and conduct SoD monitoring quickly and affordably.

"Auditors are placing increased scrutiny on application access and authorization levels. As a result, functions like access provisioning and SoD have become too complex and the risks too great for organizations to manage effectively with manual processes," said Tom Wojcinski, director of technology risk services at Baker Tilly.

ERP Maestro is a cloud-based solution that automates segregation of duties, sensitive access, emergency access and secure provisioning.

"We are very pleased to work with an emerging leader like ERP Maestro to bring a new level of automation, control oversight and risk visibility for our clients–ensuring ERP systems are secure while reducing risk and controlling costs."

ERP Maestro’s solution brings cost savings when compared to legacy ERP on-premises solutions and processes. The solution monitors all transactions in SAP for conflicts down to the authorization object level and features a selection of audit-ready reports out of the box.

"Fraud and the cost of security audits have increased for SAP and other ERP environments. Baker Tilly is addressing the growing need for organizations focused on SoD risk analysis to automate their SoD controls monitoring process," said Jody Paterson, CEO, ERP Maestro. "ERP Maestro is proud to work with Baker Tilly. We look forward to helping its SAP clients eliminate costs associated with the compliance reporting process and improve organizational risk position."

Baker Tilly has already implemented the solution with several clients. To learn more, visit www.bakertilly.com/technology-risk.
