Day Pitney Secures Proprietary and Customer Data and Reduces Its Risk Exposure
- Secure a considerable amount of proprietary and client data.
- Gain full control over activity across the IT infrastructure, with increased focus on the file shares containing sensitive content.
- Prove the reliability of internal controls during regular audits conducted by clients.
Dino chose Netwrix for its accurate data discovery capabilities and agentless audit data collection that does not degrade system performance.
- Continuous discovery of sensitive data. Once Dino deployed Netwrix, he identified the location of all sensitive content. He scanned all shares with the built-in taxonomies; identified different categories of data, including cardholder data, personal health information and GDPR data of clients who do business in Europe. He verified that the data is stored in secured locations. Dino runs this discovery and classification process on a weekly basis, since new documents are created almost every day.
- Better control over user privileges. Netwrix provides Dino with precise information about who has access to what sensitive data and how they got that access. He regularly works with data owners to verify that these rights are in line with business needs. He gets alerts whenever a user is added to a highly privileged group, so he can check right away whether the change was approved by management. He leverages the report on mailbox delegation and permissions changes to ensure that only authorized administrative assistants have access to attorneys’ mailboxes.
- Visibility into IT risks. Dino uses the risk assessment dashboard extensively to drill down and find where something is off balance. He detects accounts with passwords that never expire, inactive user accounts that are not disabled, and potentially harmful files like executables or scripts. He keeps tabs on potential risks to the IT environment and data.
- Improved security of sensitive data
- Enforcement of the least-privilege principle
- Continuous identification of IT risks
