protected-networks.com, provider of an exclusive access rights management software, will be demonstrating its flagship solution 8MAN, at RSA 2013 to be held in San Francisco from February 25 - March 1. The RSA conference is one the most sought-after events in the data security industry, as it continually evolves program offerings to meet the ever-changing needs of delegates in the dynamic infosec industry. Theme for this year’s show is: Security in Knowledge.

"For security professionals world over, RSA Conference is an ideal forum offering great insights into the emerging trends and challenges. We look forward to starting 2013 with this highly inspiring show," commented Stephan Brack, CEO protected-networks.com GmbH

8MAN is an intuitive interface with superior graphical elements to allow organisations using fileservers, Active Directory, exchange and SharePoint to easily view, manage, provision and delegate access rights. This in turn allows organisations to trust not only the integrity, security and confidentiality of their business information but also the people who access that information. Recently, the company launched 8MAN for vSphere, extending similar features and benefits for data stored on private cloud, namely, VMware’s vSphere.

Recently, the solution was also recognised at the prestigious Computing Security Awards 2012 in the ‘Best New Product of the Year’ category, whereby it secured the runner-up position.

8MAN enables organisations to easily and transparently answer the following questions:

  •     Which users have access to what data?
  •     Who can access a given directory or SharePoint web application
  •     Who made which changes to user permissions?
  •     Who touched which data and what did they do with it (delete, modify, copy, move, etc.)?
  •     How can I improve the quality of access rights decisions by involving business users and delegating responsibility?

Besides this, some of the salient features of 8MAN most valued by the clients are:

  •     Deployment in under an hour and requires very little training
  •     Intuitive and easily understandable
  •     Non-intrusive and shows immediate security and business benefits
  •     Simplest yet effective access rights solution

At the RSA conference, delegates will be offered a personalised walk-through of 8MAN, so they can assess the ease of operability and its advantages first-hand. The solution ensures that even data-owners with no in-depth IT knowledge are able to assign and manage privileges. The clear presentation of privileges makes it easy for administrators to detect and fix configuration errors or to correct inappropriately assigned privileges.

Because 8MAN also analyses and displays group structure correlations, it makes it easy to resolve duplicate or conflicting privileges. Precise tracking of all user and directory-related changes ensures that all changes are fully traceable. This data is suitable for exporting to other applications, such as identity management systems, or for preparing reports.
