Using 8MAN we can complete OCG’s existing Role Mining Service to not only look at user’s permissions, but also the file shares they access. This means organisations have much greater visibility of what their users have access to. - OCG MD Neil Coughlan, Europe’s leading privilege management company and provider of 8MAN, an integrated access rights management software, along with their partner OCG will demonstrate the power of 8MAN at the Identity Management conference on 19 June in London. Delegates at the conference can opt for a free 8MAN audit of their data environment, to help them identify permission errors, over-privileged user accounts and other access rights ambiguities caused by mounting unstructured data and lack of overview. 8MAN has an easy-to-understand graphical interface, and a wide range of intuitive features and functions that allow clients to manage access rights to critical business information.

OCG’s Neil Coughlan says: “Using 8MAN we can complete OCG’s existing Role Mining Service to not only look at user’s permissions, but also the file shares they access. This means organisations have much greater visibility of what their users have access to. ”

OCG and protected-networks have been working together to find ways of tackling the growing complexities of information security with this unique approach to Identity and Access Management (IAM). Together OCG and protected-networks will cater to the fast-growing use-provisioning market expected to grow at 10%*. What makes their 8MAN approach different is its rigorous monitoring of user-activities, reporting and access strictly on a need-to-know basis. This makes it especially useful for IT decision-makers.

The 8MAN solution will interest delegates with its powerful new features; features which help clients understand conflicting privileges, duplication and inaccuracies. Clients get detailed reports on user-activities in Exchange, File Sever, SharePoint and Exchange to discover precisely:

  •              Which users have access to what data?
  •              Who can access a 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 upcoming Identity Management Conference is UK’s foremost gathering for IT and business decision-makers from government, finance, business and industry who are looking for solutions to identity management. This year’s conference considers the transition from IT infrastructure to business intelligence.
