Secure efficiently and easily your perimeter with Brainwave  GRC

Each application and infrastructure manager within the organization must ensure operational maintenance within their scope. They must also operate level 1 controls to implement internal control plans and respond to any auditor request.

The infrastructure and application manager is therefore responsible for ensuring compliance, as well as securing the data and systems of their infrastructures and applications.

Business challenges

Lack of global visibility

The infrastructure and application manager generally has a good visibility over access allocation within the systems for which they are responsible. However, they do not always have timely access to contextual information, which would help them judge whether the allocated access is relevant to the situation: this user switched to another team and function and his rights have not been reviewed; another user accumulates rights that are prohibited regarding several applications; etc.

Consequently, these situations, which pose a security risk, accumulate in systems, hidden from view, and they are only dealt with after their negative consequences appear, in “reactive mode”. 

Solutions

Benefit from a 360° view

Brainwave Identity GRC offers a holistic and comprehensive vision of contextualized access to resources and data, particularly through the collection, processing, and reconciliation of HR data with technical data the applications and infrastructures, rights, and access logs.

The infrastructure and application manager is notified regarding changes, abnormal situations, and control gaps; thus, they can act quickly and correct the problems.

Tedious access rights reviews

Conducting access rights reviews or recertification requires a large number of participants, who must provide accurate and easily understandable information. Reviews, relaunches, and results consolidation also add a significant workload.

Conduct reviews quickly and easily

Brainwave Identity GRC makes it easier to complete reviews by automating campaigns with a powerful, customizable workflow engine. Reviews are adapted to business needs and provide concrete, actionable reports, both to ensure that systems are secured in a timely fashion and to meet regulatory requirements.

Complex AD audits

It is a complex matter to conduct an Active Directory (AD) audit. Directories contain thousands of objects that are not always documented: user accounts, service accounts, groups, etc. How can you ensure that the access rights provided do not create security risks? And how can you monitor administrative delegation within the domains? Migration to the cloud (Azure AD, Office 365) further exacerbates security issues and risks.

Conduct audit over Active Directories efficienctly

Brainwave Identity GRC can not only provide a comprehensive and accurate view of the AD infrastructure situation (delegated administration rights, objects inventory, etc), but can also run reviews to document and classify objects (service accounts, groups, etc.). Thus, the objects being managed are understood and justified, and directories can be cleaned up. Finally, the solution continuously automates inspections to ensure that the situation does not gradually deteriorate over time. The collected information is archived in the system. It is also possible to view a previous version of the directory and changes made in a period of time. .
