IDENTITY AND ACCESS GOVERNANCE MEETS TOP DATA CENTER CHALLENGES
For this sensitive infrastructure, only a converged solution of cyber/IT, Physical Security and OT can provide critical, measured protection.
Data centers are complex environments that house more than systems and technologies and as such also are part of a company’s cost center. If a server is damaged or part of a malicious threat or cyber takeover by an outsider, or insider, it could mean devastating loss to business continuity, company reputation and even ongoing profitability. Breaches or other data center compromises could also wreak drastic consequences on the business in the way of substantial regulatory fines or monetary damages.
Controlling who has access—and determining precisely how much—through full-service and automated identity, access and visitor management is a core component of effective data center Security. Organizations have different personnel, contractors, employees, visitors and even families and media entering the space. Everyone needs to be precisely tracked and accounted for in a history log that meets compliance and regulatory conformance requirements. When disparate systems and manual methods are used to provide identification and work notifications, the process becomes time consuming and error prone. This may also lead to credentials existing beyond the timeframe intended, posing additional potential Security risks and compromise.
DATA CENTER VISITS AND TEMPORARY ACCESS
Self-service portals, for managers, area owners and even contractors, reduce the burden of support for Security personnel dealing with the identity population. Real-time integration with HR systems and contractor databases further supports automated Security policies and workflows.
MORE SECURE WITH YOUR EXISTING SYSTEMS
Security convergence is the answer: integrated, automated and universal digital identities deployed across IT, Physical Security and OT systems. Three-Dimensional GRC and Security solutions identify and reduce risks, close security gaps and actively enforce rules, policies and processes across the entire enterprise.
Rather than rely on different systems and processes to submit, monitor and approve access, everything happens together with a converged solution—with all movement, access and egress logged and tracked.
Intuitive, Fast and Secure Check-in
Audit, Risk and Compliance
Automated and Validated Access Approvals
Visitor identity management software pre-integrated with Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) extends the same level of protection for visitors, enforcing request approval before granting access through the enterprise-class workflow engine. Add to the mix the fact that platforms are now integrated with AI-powered Identity Intelligence technology—and users can conduct risk analysis prior to provisioning access to help proactively protect against insider threats.
