Secure and certify your access with Brainwave GRC
Access Rights mapping and Brainwave Identity Catalog
Brainwave Identity GRC allows you to create a map based on all users who have access to the information system applications and data, what they have access to, what they can do and they did and identify every single abnormal situations.
For that purpose, all this information is strengthened in a global catalog of the users and their access rights. The structure of the catalog as well as the flexibility of the associated interfaces allows you to navigate in a multi dimension data cube (by user, account, organization, or permission) and to match the data to identify potential exceptions.
With Brainwave, you have the full potential of a Business Intelligence solution applied to applications, data and digital assets security and confidentiality
Data is the life blood of any business, unfortunately bad data quality can ruin your strategic IAM effort.
Quality is measured by how accurately and consistently the Identity data in the applications and systems reflects actual information. Brainwave Identity GRC platform helps you to solve Identity data quality through a reconciliation process of all of your data contains in numerous silos in one trustable and unique Identity repository.
Brainwave Identity GRC platform collects automatically all the data from your information system. With no needs of intrusive connectors, our solution has no disruptive impact on your critical applications. Brainwave Identity GRC platform can be deployed within a few days because of the high number of applications natively supported.
The solution is designed to integrate your legacy applications with a limited effort. Once the data are extracted and updated within the catalog, you have a global, unified vision and always up to date users access rights.
Manage and Navigate
Brainwave provides you with an outstanding user experience Web portal which allows you to pilot all your actions. Beyond browsing the people rights catalog, you have access to pre-formatted dashboards highlighting the risks identified and trends. It also makes very easy to ask for a change and follow-up the status of current actions.
The information is isolated depending on the organization, making impossible for a functional manager to access to information relative to another departments.
Brainwave Identity GRC integrates a dedicated workflow engine to allow you to manage every single governance process: remediation request, access right review, request for changes, etc.
Numerous processes are provided as standard features and are perfectly integrated within the Web portal to offer a rich and intuitive user experience. Its smart integrated graphic editor allow you to customize any standard process or to create your own specific process.
Data classification allows to identify which data or directories have to be specifically protected and allows to estimate the sensitivity of directories.
Visualization of high-risk areas is immediate and allows to focus on the critical zones. This level of sensitivity is aggregated into the meta-datas of every directory and file and is immediately inherited by the directory containing those data. This allows to establish a unique reference table to the company data, being of use as point of reference at the same time to the users, to the data business owners and to the IT Managers.
Brainwave provides over 200 standard reports. Reports are accessible via the Web portal and they are dynamically generated according to the profile and the rights of the user. They can be exported under various standard formats (pdf, Microsoft Office, open office, etc.).
Reports aggregate the information under the shape of an easy to read, contextualized and visual document. Brainwave integrates a powerful reporting engine which comes with its graphic editor. You can customize the existing reports or make your own brand new report in just a few clicks.
Natural Language Query Engine
Brainwave Identity GRC integrates a natural language query engine which allows to lead 360° analysis on the whole users access rights catalog. It is the ideal solution for a CISO, a line of business Managers and an auditor audience.
It answers immediately to any natural language query and let you know: who can access a confidential folder, who has access to the files of a specific geography or organization they do not belong to, who can connect remotely to download files, who left the company and still have access to the back-office applications. It gives also relevant information in case of a forensic investigation with ease.
Automated continuous control
Brainwave Identity GRC automates the continuous control of the application landscape to check the respect of the security policies, the segregation of duties integrity, and detect excessive or toxic user access rights.
The controls spot on: data quality, orphan accounts detection, segregation of duty exceptions, excessive access rights and residual rights of former employees or contractors.
Detect and prevent access risk violations
Automate the process of detecting, remediating, and preventing access risk violations – so you can reduce unauthorized access, fraud, and the cost of compliance.
User access review and certification
The processes of access rights reviews are among the most complex to manage because they require to aggregate an gigantic volume of data. Brainwave Identity GRC platform proposes to automate the entire user access review process, for more consistent and seamless access reviews and recertification.
The solution includes different options to manage review process:
- Reviews per users, per rights, per organization or per application, per access to directories
- Per business and technical roles
- Incremental reviews can reduce the workload by including only items that have not been reviewed since a particular date or timeframe.
Brainwave Identity GRC platform leans for it on its Identity catalog as well as the results of controls.
At the end of the review all the results is consolidated, reports of compliance are automatically generated and Brainwave Identity GRC platform manages all the remediation actions directly or via the organization’s ITSM system.
With Brainwave, you can finally manage access reviews with no burden!
Brainwave IdentityGRC helps to rationalize access rights and to build a model of roles. Different features are available in the solution to build role models: detection of similar user permissions, isolation of relevant and significant roles characteristics, and access rights review process statistics.
Whether it is needed prior to an IAM solution deployment or simply to clean an application configuration, the features of the integrated Role Mining is essential to the reduction of the risks bound to the wrong/junk user rights allocation.
Business risk process evaluation
Today Corporate fraud represents a huge financial risk.
That said, it is difficult or impossible to deep dive into a business process (a collection of structured activities) relying on one or a collection of applications – ERP, eBusiness, Legacy, payment platforms, etc. to identify potential risk of fraud or toxic SoD. Business Process based Risk Evaluation and Mitigation involves identifying potential fraud and assessing the probability of these threats to actually occur in a multi applications landscape.
Brainwave Identity GRC platform enables auditors to check for SoD and compliance exceptions, but also by provide tools to detect potential fraud and to track evidence of fraud at early stage.
Audit and investigation
Whether for a one-off investigation or a recurrent audit, the solution offers the possibility to navigate through Identity data over time in a simple and user-friendly way, and emphasize any anomaly or suspect activity.
It also makes reports available and data for regulatory compliance audits (Sarbanes-Oxley, GDPR, HIPPA, ISAE 3402, CRBF 9702 or any other type of regulatory obligation, present or future).
USER BEHAVIOR ANALYTICS - BRAINWAVE UBA
Detect Cyber-Attacks and Insider Threats with Brainwave UBA
Enterprise encounters two major types of threats: cyber-attacks and insider threats. Brainwave UBA eliminates the guesswork using machine learning algorithms to assess the risk, in near-real time, of user activity.
Detects data breach and insider threats automatically and easily by analyzing weak signals:
- Better than real-time, UBA maps and analyzes the behavior by making comparison within groups of users of identical function(office) (notion of ‘ Peer Groups ‘).
UBA Improves threat detection, help to build response and drive to investigations
- The visual comparison of user behavior within a group allows to highlight differences, in case of a big gap you have to spot on anomalies meaning of fraud or attack.
Dramatically increases SOC and SIEM efficiency:
- Identify anomalies bound to use of the resources of the information system. SIEM do not detect weak signals, UBA allows you to detect the threats even if they pass under the radar of the SIEM. That it is about important or unusual movements of data, about connections made by places or by surprising time slots.
