Managing employee access and authorization in an organization
Nowadays, a user in an organization typically has access to multiple applications and usually even more user accounts (identities). If you don’t pay enough attention to identity management in your organization, you are running the risk of facing a number of problems that you will have to deal with in the future. Due to poor and non-transparent account and permission management, there is a real security risk of unauthorized access abuse with serious consequences. You will definitely not be pleased with the idea of people taking away data they don’t have access rights to from your organization. AC Identity will help you avoid these problems.
In organizations, we also encounter inefficient identity administration. Administrators manually set up new users in applications based on an e-mail request. In the same way, permission settings and change requests are manually resolved. Wouldn’t it be better to control identities automatically and centrally from one place? AC Identity is the solution that will enable you to do this!
AC Identity - Identity Management System (IDM) by AUTOCONT, is a product solution that offers you the possibility to safely and efficiently manage individual access permissions related to enterprise information systems and applications.
Mrs Smith starts a new job today as an assistant in the sales department. When it comes to new employees, many companies use printed check lists where Mrs Smith’s subordinate checks what systems and with what permissions Mrs Smith should have access to. The request then goes to the IT department. What software tools will you use to give her access to everything she is going to work with?
Access to the organization – creating an employee card (adding it into the card system), getting access to the “computer” (adding it to the directory service), setting up an e-mail account and intranet portal access (adding her to the intranet portal and setting appropriate permissions), setting up CRM access (adding her to CRM and setting appropriate permissions), setting up access to work reporting system (adding her to the attendance system and setting appropriate permissions), setting up access to relevant folders and documents in the organization (setting file and management system permissions), adding her into the payroll system. Quite a lot of things, right?
Mrs. Smith unfortunately did not prove her abilities and is dismissed in her trial period. How easily, quickly and reliably will you be able to deactivate all of her access rights? Can it happen that she will still be able to enter the systems remotely after the termination of her contract?
