Data Access Governance
Software to Lean On
All too often, organizations get serious about controlling access to their data only after they experience a data breach. But there’s no reason to wait. The Netwrix Auditor platform enables strong data access governance (DAG) across your file servers, as well as collaboration systems like SharePoint and SharePoint Online, by giving you deep insight into your unstructured data, including information about possible security gaps, effective permissions and data access patterns. With Netwrix Auditor, you can ensure that you have all the proper access security controls in place to prevent breaches.
Jump-start your DAG program by mitigating major
IT risks that endanger your sensitive data
Remediating gaps in your data security is critical to data breach prevention. Start broad and see if
there is data
on your file servers that has access rights assigned in violation of access management best practices. Then get tactical
and focus on identifying and classifying your sensitive data. With Netwrix Auditor, you can proactively harden your
security controls and ensure the effectiveness of your other DAG practices, including assigning access rights in
accordance with the least-privilege principle and maintaining strict control over data access.
Enable effective access governance by staying
in control of data access rights
Ensure that only eligible users have access to sensitive files and folders by regularly reviewing
and involving data owners to verify that those permissions are appropriate. Monitor changes to access rights on file servers
and SharePoint sites, as well as changes to sharing and security in SharePoint Online, to ensure that each change is authorized
and won’t jeopardize your data security efforts.
Ensure your data access governance policies are followed
by keeping data access events under control
Having access management processes written on paper is different from exercising access control
your network. Get the power to promptly detect and investigate attempts to access your unstructured data
on file servers, SharePoint, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business that fall out of compliance with
your access management policies.
