Brainwave GRC, software vendor specialized in Identity Analytics, launches the 2017 version of its Brainwave Identity GRC solution.

A FLEXIBLE SOLUTION TO ENSURE EFFORTLESS RISK MANAGEMENT

Brainwave Identity GRC is an out of the box solution for audit and compliance control regarding user access rights in information systems. The solution enables companies to mitigate their security risks and easily fulfill their compliance requirements thanks to automated control and analysis processes. With Brainwave Identity GRC, organizations benefit from a 360° view over individuals who have access to the company’s data and applications, their access rights and their use of them on a daily basis in order to detect any abnormal behavior or unusual situation. Brainwave GRC clients know “who has access to what” within their systems and “who has been doing what” to ensure a continuous risk management.

The 2017 Brainwave Identity GRC edition includes multiple innovative features which answer strategic client needs, facilitate user experience and enable our clients to take advantage of all of our solution’s potential.

LOG LAKE AND USER BEHAVIOR ANALYTICS (UBA)

In its 2017 version, Identity GRC enables you to know “who is doing what” in your information systems and in an immediate way. The solution collects and centralizes application access logs within a log lake and highlights rapidly and easily informations regarding user behavior. With Identity GRC, you can know who works in your company and who has access to what but also who accessed which application or referential and when. With this log lake, the solution provides useful and precise user behavior analyses in order to easily fight against internal fraud or provide informations for audits.

 

AN OPTIMAL USER EXPERIENCE

Identity GRC 2017 has again improved the solution’s web platform user experience by enabling the user to edit and customize dashboards in a few clicks and share them via a web interface. This 2017 new feature – mashup dashboards – grants more autonomy and responsability to the user, for example for security offciers managing a community. With the Identity GRC mashup dashboards, each user views only results corresponding to data placed under his jurisdiction and can chose to view them as a list, indicators or graphs with the possibility to view trends.

 

AN POWERFUL CAMPAIGN MANAGER

Last, the Identity GRC 2017 version also includes a new review campaign manager which enables you to monitor and automatically set the rythm for campaigns.  It reinforces and improves the current campaign manager as it enables you to benefit from a precise follow-up regarding campaigns’ progress, to directly access compliance reports as well as include an electronic signature and show compliance reports stamped with date and time to prove, if needed, non repudiation.

Brainwave Identity GRC 2017 still operates automated remediation actions by connecting to target systems (ServiceNow, Atlassian Jira, …), as well as customizing execution, reminder and validation stages of a review.

Recent events reveal how much it has become harder and harder to keep control of IT infrastructures and that cybersecurity is the key to proper assets and user management considering digital transformation as a whole. 

Identity management’s promess, focused on operational efficiency – “who works in the company” and “who has access to what regarding his/her role” – is no longer sufficient. It is now necessary to understand how the company’s sensitive assets are used in order to anticipate cyberattack, fraud or data leak risks. 

This new paradigm, relying both on an in-depth knowledge of access rights and which access rights individuals use, his reinforced by decision aid approaches (user behavior analytics, machine learning) in order to identify weak signals. 

We are proud, after two years of R&D, to be the first European actor able to answer this challenge. Our “plug&play” approach enables security officers and assets managers to take back control of the company’s assets wherever they are and, in consequence, support and accelerate digital transformation initiatives”.
