Increase Security with Portal-Based Recertification of Access Rights

We are very pleased to announce the general availability of its Garancy Recertification Center, our portal solution to boost the use of SAM Enterprise for the efficient recertification of user access rights. It enables companies to review internal and external users’ access rights and to specify which managers are able to recertify or revoke user permissions. The benefit to companies is an increase in the security and accuracy of recertifications, while making the recertification process itself auditable and compliant.

Insider Threats

Recent studies have shown that 50-70% of all attacks on information security are coming from within the organization, and often the length of time that the breach existed is unknown. There are many issues involved in closing the gaps that cause such insider incidents and strenghten the protection of data.

Using the need “need to know” principal, organizations can limit who has access to data. Controls that adjust given access rights to actual needs exist and should be utilized. This webcast session will focus on how to adjust data access rights, implementing the “least privilege principal”, and the use of detective and proactive risk-oriented controls.

How to identify and measure IT access risks

IT Risk Identification with Access Intelligence – Why you can’t do without it

Before access risks can be avoided, reduced or managed, they must first be identified. While this may seem trivial, it is a complex task in terms of permission management. Detecting and assessing risks among the enormous amounts of data that continuously accrue in the access management environment is a lot like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. With a growing number of users, roles and IT systems – all of which must be granted permissions – the sheer number of risk opportunities rises exponentially.

A company with 5,000 employees and only 50 IT systems with ten permission groups each, for example, has over 2.5 million permission-granting possibilities, each of which may represent a high or low risk for the company. In light of this, the task of identifying all the existing risks from these permissions, assessing their effects and defining appropriate measures seems hopeless.
