Overview


Data permissions administration is increasingly important as businesses work to harden identity and access management (IAM) in support of zero trust. Traditionally, data permissions were handled by system administrators and run through databases and authentication platforms like Active Directory.  

The Challenge

For years, data permissions management meant that IT teams would add individual permissions on an ad-hoc basis and as part of their organization’s standard onboarding and offboarding procedures. Traditional IT infrastructure made administration more manageable as data lived on servers housed inside the business’s four walls.  

But distributed workforces, rapid cloud adoption and a reliance on connected systems means that today sensitive data is copied, moved and shared to systems and collaboration tools that reside outside of the business.  

Legacy data permissions practices and technology make it impossible to audit data permissions based on a business’s sensitive information and where it lives. As a result, system administrators struggle to stay on top of data access.

The Solution

IT teams need to understand what sensitive data the organization has, so they can limit access to it.

Building an IAM foundation that starts with data discovery and classification ensures that document and data access is limited by its type and sensitivity. This helps teams apply appropriate permissions, accurately adjust permissions and run audit reports that support attack surface management.
