Autome access reviews and control processes
Increase your IT team’s productivity and include business managers easily
IT teams must shoulder increasingly large workloads, given the increase in huge data volumes and the fragmentation of the information systems for which they are responsible. The lack of visibility of security risks, HR movements, access rights, permissions and shared assets, collection and processing of data “by hand”, difficulties with responding to requests from the auditors… New operational difficulties are added daily.
The result? Productivity is constrained by this workload. Risk detection comes late and is incomplete, and collaboration with other stakeholders within the organization is difficult. Brainwave Identity GRC provides an opportunity to relieve your IT staff of a significant part of their workload and optimize their productivity by focusing on their preferred activities and centralizing all information on a single platform.
Answer the challenges of data growth with Brainwave GRC
Every day, IT teams are stretched thin, as they research and compile information “by hand”, and authorization data is scattered throughout fragmented information systems.
Brainwave Identity GRC, which is centralized on a single platform, is accessible via a web application, along with all the data, technical information, and information from HR in your organization.
Data collection and processing are automated to allow job profiles to access information that is easily understood and readily usable on the platform.
The IT teams have a 360° view of all authorization data, HR information, and risks to the systems for which they are responsible.
Identify risks and anomalies
Brainwave Identity GRC facilitates the identification of security risks, particularly by highlighting risky situations and abnormal users behaviors
The solution’s analysis and reporting engines highlight abnormal allocations of rights to a user, as well as any behavior that is significantly different from their peers, the allocation of privilege rights to an associate when their function does not justify such privilege a priori, or even an anomaly concerning access to a shared directory or an AD.
The solution enables IT teams to focus their attention on situations and behaviors that may represent a risk and require further attention. This saves time and results in higher operational efficiency for the detection and subsequent correction of these potential or known security risks.
Manage remediation via ITSM or ticketing
Brainwave Identity GRC automates and facilitates remediation management to prevent situations and rights allocations that pose a security risk to the organization.
The IT teams can then conduct the remediations via ITSM or the ticketing system integrated into the solution, which stakeholders in the organization can access.
These tasks are no longer performed “by hand”, but can be conducted quickly and effortlessly, with reports that summarize completed actions and incorporate any recommendations.
The solution goes so far as to verify, once the ITSM ticket is closed, that the associated remediation is effective in the systems involved.
Automate access, organizations, permissions and accounts reviews
The Brainwave Identity GRC solution, with its workflow engine, also allows you to automate review campaigns for access, organizations, permissions, and accounts.
Because of this automation, the solution relieves the IT teams of a significant part of their workload, as the reviews are typically conducted “by hand”.
In addition, the automation of these processes allows department managers to be involved in conducting the reviews, as the solution cross-references the access rights, accounts, identities, and permissions with HR data. This provides a contextualized and fair view of each organization, so that each review can be conducted quickly and efficiently.
The Brainwave Identity GRC reporting engine then allows you to publish actionable remediation reports to maximize the value of the reviews that are carried out.
Help and provdie information for audits and investigations
The Brainwave Identity GRC solution enables IT teams to provide auditors with the necessary information, quickly and effortlessly.
The web platform solution allows teams to navigate and search for the information in natural language, which is more efficient and saves a significant amount of time. Surpassing the need to collect and process data “by hand”, IT teams can easily assist with various investigations and audits without any additional workload.
On the other hand, the auditors themselves can access the Brainwave Identity GRC web platform to independently conduct their information search.
Supervise risk controls over business processes
IT teams can count on Brainwave Identity RCMP for controlling risks that put a burden on the business processes of the organization.
The solution automates these controls, and includes the IT teams, department managers, and other stakeholders, such as internal control, in the process.
The supervision of these controls is facilitated by the solution’s analysis and reporting engines, which can then highlight the potential and known risks involved in the business processes.
