Data Access Governance for unstructured data

Comments Off on 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.

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.

GARANCY DAG puts the business departments back in charge of stored information. It allows data owners to decide who may access certain data resources when, where and to what extent. Integrated authorization workflows or portal self-services automatically connect the respective data owners with the assignment processes in compliance with all applicable laws, standards and internal regulations.
