Selecting the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software often poses a challenge for many businesses in the manufacturing industry. With so many options out there, it’s difficult to break down each potential application and choose the one that’s the best fit for your business.
This Gartner report explains how ERP selection teams can come to a consensus and establish an understanding of all options by jointly populating and prioritizing a hierarchical, weighted ERP evaluation model.
A structured evaluation model helps put all the cards on the table by explaining and justifying to internal stakeholders, external auditors, and vendors how and why an ERP software decision was made.
Read the Gartner report and establish your own ERP evaluation model to see if the Epicor ERP solution is the right fit for your manufacturing business.

Businesses today must reduce the risk of security breaches to protect the valuable data within their
organizations. At the same time, IT auditors are increasingly enforcing ever more stringent requirements
on the business. The bottom line is that privileged accounts and privileged access are being targeted by
hackers as a new attack surface and focused on by auditors who are insisting on greater controls around
The right privileged access management solution provides comprehensive protection for your missioncritical
servers with powerful, fine-grained controls over operating system-level access and privileged
user actions. Capable of enforcing access controls on powerful native Superuser accounts—like the
UNIX® and Linux® root and Microsoft® Windows® administrator—this system-level, host-based privileged
access management solution controls, monitors and audits privileged user activity, improving security and
simplifying audit and compliance.
Las cuentas de usuario con privilegios, ya se usurpen, sean objeto de abuso o, simplemente, se usen de forma incorrecta, se encuentran en el corazón de la mayoría de las infracciones relativas a datos. Los equipos de seguridad evalúan, cada vez más, soluciones de gestión de accesos con privilegios (PAM) completas para evitar el perjuicio que podría provocar un usuario malintencionado con privilegios altos o un usuario con privilegios que está cansado, estresado o que, sencillamente, comete un error. La presión que ejercen los ejecutivos y los equipos de auditoría para reducir la exposición de la empresa aseguran el esfuerzo, pero las soluciones de PAM completas pueden acarrear costes ocultos, según la estrategia de implementación adoptada.

All organizations depend on information to manage day-to-day operations, comply with regulations, gauge financial performance, and monitor strategic initiatives. This critical information resides in the organization's business records. As internal auditors conduct their annual risk assessment, they should consider how well business records are managed and assess the degree to which the risks to this information are understood.
Organizations have traditionally viewed vulnerability scanners as a tactical product, largely commoditized and only providing value around audit time. But with limited resources and a real need to reduce risk, organizations need the ability to pull in threat-related data, combine it with an understanding of what is vulnerable, and figure out what is at risk.
This report from Securosis outlines how yesterday's vulnerability scanners are evolving to meet this need, emerging as a much more strategic component of an organization's control set than in the past.
Learn how vulnerability scanners are evolving to provide real value beyond vulnerability reports for auditors - emerging as a strategic component helping organizations effectively lower risks.
