RISK MITIGATION

Identify access risks to prevent security breaches.

Problem

In many organisations the ‘user population’ is no longer just made up of employees and contractors. Users now include partners, vendors, customers and clients.

This increase in the number, type and method of access has created an ‘identity crisis’ for many companies. In this scenario their current management systems are unable to unify disparate information, which means critical access risks remain invisible.

The reality is that the business needs flexible tools to identify, investigate and action access risks to prevent security breaches.

‘Our business model requires portal-based access for thousands of health providers internationally. We were looking for a flexible system to generate security reports that would help us identify compliance breaches, out of one system’ noted this CIO of a mid-size health services organisation.
