Q Software to showcase Cloud-based Security Audits for Oracle® ERP Cloud and Oracle® E-Business Suite Users at Oracle Openworld

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

Denver CO, October 18, 2018 – Q Software Global, an Oracle Gold Partner and provider of audit, security and productivity tools for ERP customers, will showcase its innovative QCloud Audit as a Service for Oracle ERP Cloud and Oracle E-Business Suite on Booth 3019 at Oracle Openworld in San Francisco from October 22-25.

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 four 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.

On Booth 3019 at Oracle OpenWorld, Q Software will also demonstrate QCloud License Audit, which enables Oracle E-Business Suite and JD Edwards to keep tabs on their license usage. They can use the service to:

  • Run regular checks to reveal any areas of non-compliance
  • Understand who is using which modules to identify redundant licenses
  • ​Provide evidence for the Oracle License team
  • All this within hours, with no in-house technical effort needed.
