Non-profit organization secures sensitive data, including Social Security numbers and W-2 forms
Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, announced today that Tax Executives Institute, Inc. (TEI) mitigated the risk of data breaches and enhanced employee accountability using the profound visibility provided by Netwrix Auditor.
TEI is a global association of in-house tax professionals founded in 1944 in New York, U.S. Today the institute has nearly 7,000 members aligned in 56 chapters, and represents over 2,800 leading businesses around the world. The two-person IT team needs to ensure the availability of business-critical data and secure sensitive employee information, including Social Security numbers and W-2 forms. To protect against potential security breaches, the IT team began looking for a software solution that would enable them to spot and investigate incidents as quickly as possible.
The IT team was impressed with Netwrix Auditor’s straightforward interface and the clear insight it delivers. TEI gained the following benefits from the solution:
- Tighter control over accounts and permissions. Netwrix Auditor enables the IT team to spot any changes to user accounts and their permissions right away, so they can make sure all modifications were authorized. Moreover, the software alerts them to potentially risky activity across Active Directory that could be a sign of an attack in progress, so the IT team can repel it in time to prevent damage.
- Visibility into critical data. With the software, it takes the IT team just minutes to review all activity across all file servers and make sure that business-critical and confidential data is accessed and modified only by authorized staff or detect data misuse in the early stages.
Providing information at a moment’s notice, an intuitive and user-friendly interface, great customer support — all of this is about Netwrix Auditor. It helps us easily keep all activity across the network on our radar and ensure the security of critical data. It is a very handy solution that saves us around 5 hours a week. I would absolutely recommend this software to other IT pros.
