Access Rights Management.  Only much Smarter.

8MAN secures companies from within - all employee access rights are managed and documented without allowing for any tampering.



Unstructured Data

The Challenge

Unstructured data is a huge problem for business.

80% of company data is unstructured and IDC's The Digital Universe study projects that the total amount of data created and copied annually was 4.4 zettabytes (1010, or 4.4 billion 1TB disk drives) at the end of 2013 and will grow by a factor of 10 by 2020.

Active Directory keeps track of user accounts and passwords well enough, but using native tools to manage permissions in a large Windows Environment is challenging if not impossible.

The big question might be “who has access” to finance? The Data Owner does not know in most instances.   The IT admin only creates access permissions with instructions from the data owner.

In large environments (1000+AD users) IT admins might manage their permissions using spreadsheets and scripts.

The Solution

8MAN is a unique access rights management solution that brings a new level of comfort in handling complex tasks related to user-provisioning, tracking and monitoring – helping businesses establish a robust security framework to successfully minimise exposure to insider threats.

It provides and intuitive overview of all permissions for environments such as Active Directory, File Servers, SharePoint, Exchange and vSphere.

It allows you to make changes to permissions or directly within Active Directory including enriched functionality such as temporary permissions and role based access templates.

With 8MAN, you can ensure that all parties are involved in the process of access rights management.  You can also setup scheduled reports, delegate tasks and ensure that everyone is properly informed.

8MAN helps you structure efficient workflows allowing appropriate persons to authorise access to shared areas.  Involve the people who use and create your access rights decisions is the key to efficiency and accuracy.

8MAN provides a full audit trail of all permissions and changes, allowing you to easily answer any audit or compliance question.  Make sure all changes are fully documented thereby reducing operational and data security risks.
