Q Software Announces Cloud-based Security Audits for Oracle® ERP Cloud and Oracle® E-Business Suite Users

QCloud Audit As A Service enables customers to conduct a comprehensive Segregations of Duties audit of their ERP system whenever they need it, without needing technical assistance.

Denver CO, September 26, 2017 – Q Software Global, an Oracle Gold Partner and provider of audit, security and productivity tools for ERP customers, has today announced QCloud Audit as a Service for Oracle ERP Cloud and Oracle E-Business Suite.

This Cloud-based service enables users to produce detailed Segregation of Duties (SoD) reports easily and quickly – the results are delivered overnight.

“Typically Segregation of Duties reporting is a very complex and cumbersome process, often dependent on complex spreadsheets, SQL reporting and technical resources,” said Mike Ward, Chief Executive Officer at Q Software. “It’s also prone to error, and therefore gives unreliable results. QCloud Audit as a Service eliminates the hassle and delivers accurate information online very rapidly.”

With this innovative service, customers can login to the QCloud portal and request an audit of their live system. Within 4 hours the user will receive a URL to view their results, including SoD analysis with drill down facilities to investigate violations, key security metrics and an audit report identifying security weaknesses and recommendations for improvements.

How it works:
Customers request an audit from the QCloud portal, then download the Q Agent, which gathers the security information needed from the ERP system, then pushes it to QCloud.  All data is fully encrypted and totally secure both in flight and in situ.

The data is analyzed, then the requester receives an email notification that the audit results are ready, including links to access and download the consultancy 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, and the results will be delivered overnight.

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

Q Software will showcase QCloud at Booth 2828 at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco on October 1-5.
