With 8MAN, both IT and business units can have a complete overview of who can do what with critical data, with just a couple of clicks.

Leading global Access Rights Management company and Microsoft partner, protected-networks.com Gmbh unveiled the latest version of its flagship solution 8MAN. With 8MAN 4.5, the company continues to focus on offering an integrated approach to permissions management to alleviate clients’ growing concern of mounting data and bewildering authorisations structure. The solution essentially restores the integrity, security and confidentiality of business sensitive information by limiting access strictly to a need-to-know basis. The new version will be showcased at the upcoming OVUM IAM show, to be held in London on 4th Dec 2012.

Company officials claim that the new version 8MAN integrates a host of new features that effectively streamline access rights process for enterprises and thereby contribute to a much safer environment for confidential data.

“Data or information is pivotal to the health of any business. In today’s fast-paced environment, businesses cannot rely on cumbersome and time-consuming solutions. We have therefore, focused on two key aspects: precision and simplicity. With 8MAN, both IT and business units (data stewards) can have a complete overview of who can do what with critical data, with just a couple of clicks.” said Stephan Brack, CEO, protected-networks.com.
