CyberSafe announces support for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance.
TrustBroker Secure Client is one of the first products to offer FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance and Single Sign-On / Multiple Sign-On for SAP Business Applications
ORLANDO, Fla. – May 14, 2012 – CyberSafe, a leading security software vendor and SAP partner, today announced that that the latest version of its TrustBroker™ Secure Client product delivers Active Directory-based Single Sign-On and Multiple Sign-On, with full support for the FDA 21 CFR Part 11 (FDA) Compliance features in the SAP® ERP application. The announcement was made at the SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference being held in Orlando, May 14-16, where CyberSafe is exhibiting in booth 207.
“Our customers were looking for our Secure Client product to co-exist with their FDA compliance needs, as non-compliance with FDA regulations can lead to fines and cost millions of dollars,” said Tim Alsop, CEO, CyberSafe. “The risk of ignoring these issues is high, so we made this a top priority.”
Version 4.3.3 of the TrustBroker Secure Client includes new features that allow users to re-authenticate when signing and approving electronic documents. They can use the same Active Directory credentials that they used when they logged onto SAP ERP. Previously, CyberSafe customers were required to use an SAP user ID and password for re-authentication, and use TrustBroker and Active Directory credentials via Single Sign-On for the initial application log on.
When using TrustBroker Secure Client, FDA compliance can co-exist with Active Directory authentication and Single Sign-On for SAP ERP without any need for additional hardware - saving on capital investment and operational costs. Installation and deployment is both quick and easy, and complexity is further reduced, as no Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is required, keeping costs down and allowing a quick ROI.
Users can have a single Active Directory identity and a single set of credentials for authentication. This reduces costs, boosts user productivity and improves security and compliance. Users who must sign and approve electronic records for FDA compliance can now complete the electronic signature process more easily and effectively.
“Part 11 Section 11.10 requires that the possibility that a signer would repudiate an approval be minimized,” added Alsop. “TrustBroker does this by asking the user to re-authenticate using their existing Active Directory credentials when approving any type of document. The user has a single unique identity and a single set of authentication credentials, so he or she doesn’t need to remember multiple credentials, thereby reducing the chance of a repudiation.”
In addition, TrustBroker includes many advanced features compared to typical SSO products, such as enhanced auditing, which reduces the time to troubleshoot authentication issues; automatic encryption key renewal, which improves overall application security; and support for a wide range of authentication methods, including X.509 Certificate, RSA SecurID, Active Directory Account and Password.
TrustBroker goes beyond Single Sign-On by ensuring compliance with FDA regulations using a simple, easy-to-use re-authentication process that streamlines approvals and boosts user productivity.
