Risks related to poor AD management habits
Certain poor management habits also generate data quality issues. Brainwave Identity GRC can identify these problems immediately and investigate easily the root causes. By lack of time or of good practices in rights management, it is common that administrators allocate direct rights or discretionnary ones without going by the group notion in Active directory.
- administrators’ tolerance levels that are too high regarding residual rights in frames of reference
- orphan accounts resulting from an absence of syncing with personel movements
- good management of accounts with privileges
- no respect of the specific classification to classify accounts with privileges
- orphan accounts management, desactived accounts monitoring over time, services accounts management
- cyclical groups in AD that can be represent a stability and availability issue for applications which are exploiting this frame of reference
- inheritance break-ups in shared folders rights allocation (also belonging to data governance issues)
- Absent or partial metadata
These practices are to avoid because they represent security risks. Brainwave Identity GRC enables you to identify immediately quality issues and analyze the root causes.
