Cost, quality, and efficiency, these are the key metrics that any organization--be it a manufacturing company, financial institution or a service agency-- strives to improve, relentlessly. A sound operations management forms the basis of a fundamental strength of a company.
For manufacturing companies, it becomes all the more important to constantly improve the process management. Needless to say, operation and R&D managers are in a grinding pursuit of improving every aspect of the manufacturing processes through innovation, and automation. But amid rising digitization and increasing cyber-attacks, safeguarding IT assets (design, patents, etc.) is equally crucial.
The manufacturing company had to face security challenge when IT security decision makers realized that it never had a system in place to manage and monitor privileged accounts, which is a one of the global compliance requirements.
ADMIN accounts were shared and there was no mechanism in place to monitor passwords and access across all data centers. With a growing business and increasing responsibility of management of technology infrastructure, our client required a solution to manage administrative access to number of devices, applications and network security devices.
- Management of multiple shared IT infrastructure
- Third Part Access Control
- Streamlining & Securing access for users
- Aligning shared IT teams with restrictive access
- Meeting Regulatory Compliance requirements
