Why Read This Report

Today's customer-centric businesses must maximize business agility to adapt quickly to a rapidly evolving marketplace. At the core of any agile business are highly productive and efficient employees who possess the necessary access to key applications and data to do their jobs. However, in their quest to maximize employee productivity, firms are exposing themselves to unnecessary risks and increasing their chances of a data breach by using outdated approaches to verify employee access. Today's highly dynamic technology environments require processes that are more holistic and automated for properly assessing individual access privileges. Security and risk (S&R) professionals must enhance existing access governance processes with data and complementary technologies to deliver better risk insight and intelligence. This report provides practical guidance that S&R pros can use to gain better visibility over identities and entitlements to mitigate risk while empowering employees.
