Challenge
  • After the merger of three different brands, each with its own IT system and resources, COVEA Group needed consistent identity management across the whole organization. In particular, it needed to know exactly what rights each employee had, be able to handle specific permissions for each brand, and avoid losing important information during the reorganization. 
  • COVEA also needed to ensure it was managing identities and entitlements in compliance with internal policies and regulatory controls, including Command and Control Regulation, General Data Protection Regulation, and Operators of Essential Services. 
  • COVEA recognized that it needed a solution that would streamline permission and authorization management, standardize and optimize IT systems, and enable effective responses to audit checks to keep up with data security and privacy requirements. The solution needed to be flexible and easy to use, preferably SaaS.

Within five days, Netwrix Usercube demonstrated its alignment with all our requirements, including business, technical, and safety aspects.
