Share Article

8MAN has been nominated in two categories in the upcoming 2013 Network Computing Awards UK, set up to recognise the solutions and the companies that have been most impressive in helping organisations function better . Currently, 8MAN is being showcased at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, one of the most sought after shows with a focus on security.

8MAN, the flagship solution from Berlin based GmbH has been shortlisted for 2013 Network Computing Awards in ‘Software Product of the year’ and ‘Bench Tested Product of the Year’ categories. These nominations reinforce the solutions growing success and ability to assist businesses in managing growing unstructured data.

Recognition on this forum as one of the front runners in these categories further strengthens the company’s position as a key player in the data security ecosystem. 8MAN is unique access rights management solutions, which assists organisations using file servers, Active Directory 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.

8MAN focuses on reporting, administration and delegation, thereby transparently answer critical questions such as:

  • 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.)?

The ease of operability of 8MAN ensures that even data owners with no specific 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.

"8MAN assists clients in effectively managing roles and permissions across organisation. Knowing which employees have access to which files, strengthens the process for reviewing and assigning access rights.” - Stephan Brack, CEO protected-networks.”
