Data Access Control

Time and again companies are caught off-guard by inappropriate access rights

This often results in financial penalties, legal problems or data theft.
Despite this, internal data security is rarely given the importance it deserves. Large companies often lose track of the internal permissions structure – leaving highly sensitive data susceptible to unwarranted internal access. Traditional approaches are no longer sufficient to manage users and their access rights. Only if you know who has access to which data, across your organisation, can you defend your sensitive information against unauthorised access and shield your business from malicious threats and information security risk.
A closer inspection of authorisation structures often reveals over privileged users and other discrepancies which can lead to serious insider fraud. Proactive security measures are therefore needed to limit access strictly on a need to know basis.
This not only nurtures accountability and awareness, but also contributes to significant cost and time savings.

Who is it designed for?

FOR CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE SENSITIVE DATA

FOR CUSTOMERS WHO ARE SUBJECT TO COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS

FOR CUSTOMERS WHO ARE USING ACTIVE DIRECTORY

FOR CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE LARGE AMOUNTS OF UNSTRUCTURED DATA

Background

Our Data Access control review provides any size of organisation with a single pane view of who has access to what data, across the organisation and for all users.

This enables data owners to make informed decisions as to who ‘should’ have access to what information. The review can be provided ‘as a Service’ to regularly audit data access controls, or as a solution to enable on going data governance controls.

The Benefits

Simple, single pane view

Companies get a simple, single pane view of all permissions – across all systems and locations, leaving no threat undiscovered

Documented and auditable

All changes to user rights and group memberships are documented and auditable. Anomalies can be quickly spotted to avoid employees having any unauthorized access to confidential and sensitive company data.

Immediate answers

Using  traditional measures, an IT team will take many weeks  to analyse data access controls for compliance, audit and regulation.  Our Data Access Control services provide immediate answers to demonstrate to senior management that proactive data security controls are being maintained.
