Q Software Announces Cloud-based Security Audits for JD Edwards World Users

QCloud Audit as a Service enables customers to conduct a comprehensive audit of their JD Edwards World security and Segregation of Duties whenever they need it, without needing technical assistance.

Denver CO, March 12, 2018 – Q Software Global, an Oracle Gold Partner and provider of audit, security and productivity tools for Oracle ERP customers, has today announced QCloud Audit as Service for JD Edwards World. This service rapidly delivers accurate information about the effectiveness of the customer’s security and Segregation of Duties (SoD) controls, and helps to reduce external audit costs and prevent internal fraud.

With this innovative service, customers can login to the QCloud portal and request a security audit of their live system. Within hours, the user will receive a URL to view their results, including access and Segregation of Duties analysis, and a report identifying security weaknesses and recommendations for improvements.

“Up to now, auditing JD Edwards World security has been an extremely tortuous process, often dependent on complex spreadsheets, SQL reporting and technical resources,” said Brian Stanz, Chief Technology Officer at Q Software. “It was also prone to error, and therefore gave unreliable results. QCloud Audit as a Service eliminates the hassle and delivers accurate information online very rapidly.”

How it works:
Customers request an audit from the QCloud portal, then download the QCloud Audit library and Q Agent, which gathers the information needed from the ERP system, such as the live Security table, User and Role information, then pushes it to QCloud.  All data is fully encrypted and totally secure in flight and at rest.

The data is analyzed, then the requester receives an email notification that the audit results are ready, including links to access and download the report via QCloud.  An interactive view of the detailed audit results is available online.

Users can also view previous audit reports and graphs comparing the results of their audits, highlighting trends and areas of improvement or degradation.  New audits can be requested at any time.

The audit can help customers:

  • Reduce external audit and compliance reporting costs
  • Prevent internal fraud
  • Prioritize security improvement work
  • Scan on demand to check remediation work
  • Plan a JD Edwards upgrade.
