Implementing Fastpath’s Assure Suite: Pre-installation steps

FastpathThis post is part of the series on Implementing Fastpath's Assure Suite.

When you place an order for the Fastpath Assure Suite, you are asked to complete a questionnaire; this is important to get correct as the details on this questionnaire will form the basis for both your registration key and how the Fastpath portal connects to your local system.

Once the questionnaire has been sent to Fastpath, they will create the necessary configuration on their side, including setting up the Fastpath portal; you will get both test and production portals created.

One of the details you’ll supply is the main administrator and how they will sign in (Microsoft Account or Fastpath account); along with your portal details you will also receive a log in to the support portal for the administrator.

Implementing Fastpath’s Assure Suite: What is Assure Suite?

FastpathThis post is part of the series on Implementing Fastpath's Assure Suite.

The Fastpath Assure Suite is a comprehensive security auditing tool for analysing segregation of duties, critical transactions and key access to systems. While it works with several systems, this series of posts is specifically looking at it working with Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Fastpath developed the Assure suite of tools to simplify security and audit needs by streamlining segregation of duties analysis and user access reporting. If your company is having trouble reviewing user access, recognizing access conflicts, or tracking what users do with their access, the Fastpath Assure suite has solutions to help. Separated into modules to allow proper reporting, the suite includes templates to make security or audit reviews easy to understand, shareable, and with scheduling automation, built for repeatable success.

Access Reviews

The Access Review module pulls user access data from your business software, allowing you to review and sign-off on access by user, company, role, and data sensitivity.

Audit Trail

The Audit Trail module tracks changes made to your business software, including schema changes. Audit Trail allows you design templates that focus on high conflict areas of change, creating efficient and easy-to-read reports.

Segregation Of Duties (SoD)

The SoD module analyses access in your business software by user or role, down to the lowest security level, reporting any conflicts or risks associated with the access.

Identity Manager

The Identity Manager module allows user provisioning to be fast and secure. Using this tool allows business process owners to request access directly from approvers without the need for IT intervention, streamlining the provisioning process. It also allows you to assign temporary (or firefighter) access.
