Today, every company’s data footprint is constantly increasing and managing this data becomes ever more difficult, yet also increasingly important. Structuring the directories in a meaningful way and being able to continuously monitor the growth and changes within your company can easily turn into a full-time job. In addition, stricter legal requirements and necessity to comply with various auditing and compliance standards has placed the onus firmly on each company to keep their house in order. Being able to determine who in your organisation can access what data is absolutely crucial in today’s regulatory environment.
Due to these conditions, auditors require the necessary tools and information, if they are to make a meaningful impact on your organisation. Without the ability to determine both the historical growth and the current access rights situation it is virtually impossible to find weaknesses in security which can have very costly effects.
