Waters Corporation is a $1.6 billion organization that for more than 50 years has developed innovative analytical technologies that support scientific laboratories in their discoveries, operations, performance and regulatory compliance.

With two divisions and operations in 27 countries, Waters needs to manage access risks spanning security, finance, operations, regulatory compliance and access to sensitive information. Waters must also comply with the SOD requirement of the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act, which enforces appropriate levels of checks and balances for any one person to complete all the steps of a specific business process to avoid fraud and errors.
