Single Sign-On Outside Of SAP Portal

50 Views

As a result of audit issues with our financial auditor we are currently in the process of changing our password reset parameters in all of our SAP systems to reset the passwords every 90 days. We have most of SAP modules installed including the following modules:

SAP R/3

SAP BW

SAP SEM

SAP APO

SAP CRM

SAP Portals

We currently have single sign-on enabled within SAP Portals however we are anticipating high call volumes in our help desk when we make this parameter change as users will be prompted in all SAP environments (accessed outside of the portal) to change their password every 90 days. We are also anticipating issues with users keeping their passwords in synch in the different environments that they have user ids. We anticipate this will be particularly an issue in BW and SEM where users have Excel BEX workbooks that they refresh and are prompted for user ids and passwords.

As a result, we are looking into single sign-on tools. Currently we have looked at the following companies:

Courion

Imprivata OneSign

P-Synch by M-Tech

Secude - Have not looked at this but got an email post Sapphire.

Does anyone have any experience with any of the above vendors? Are there other tools we should be looking at? Is a tool necessary or are there other ways to achieve single sign-on?

Any help would be appreciated.
