Identity & Access Management is not just for Security its for Business!

IAM as a Business Enabler

IAM as Business Enabler

Sure, Identity & Access Management ticks the boxes for IT Security requirements for both internal IT security policies and external governance and compliance requirements and that alone is justification for some organisations to invest in an IAM solution.

But lets be honest – the real reason most businesses invest in IT systems is; to

Reduce Costs and Increase Business!

Increasing business of course should be the main goal for any size organisation as its seeks to either maintain market position (by controlling customer churn) or attract new customers away from the competition.

Fit for an IAM implementation

How to get fit for an IAM implementation

There are several measures you can and should take to prepare for the successful, efficient and on-target IAM implementation. The more carefully such a project is planned, the smoother and simpler the actual implementation will turn out.

Many IAM projects end up exceeding the planned time and budget many times over. The possible reasons are manifold, but generally not only the system provider is to blame – instead, more likely than not, the project preparation and definition of the required specialist concepts was also flawed.

Data Access Governance for unstructured data

Improve your security and reduce the risk of data theft

Beta Systems Software AG introduces the GARANCY Data Access Governance (DAG) solution. This enables customers the secure administration and control of access rights to data stored in unstructured format. Access to data resources can be managed at sub-AD group level such as on file servers, in Microsoft SharePoint or other document management systems. Company data is thus far better protected. GARANCY DAG helps organizations meet the high expectations in risk management and increasing compliance demands in regard to critical information.

Data Access Governance

Data Access Governance

Growing security risks are often neglected

Companies have to process ever greater volumes of unstructured data – such as documents, spreadsheets, presentations or e-mails – on a daily basis. This leads to non-transparent file systems, unmanageable access authorizations and higher security risks. Security is threatened by undesired rights accumulations, multiple used accounts and orphaned user rights of former employees. Companies need clarity on who may access what data, who controls data access and whether the file system has structural weaknesses that facilitate unwanted data leakage.
