Access control is really about three key questions. What do your users have access to? Which users have access to which resources? And why do those users have that access? Hi, I'm Allison Main, Product Marketing for Identity and Access Management Solutions at Dell Software.
Good access control is a matter of avoiding the use of local groups-- like those created in Windows file servers, Microsoft SQL Server, and SharePoint-- and assigning permissions and managing entitlements to Active Directory groups instead. In the new white paper, "Access Control Is Easy-- Use Active Directory Groups and Manage Them Well," author and security expert Randy Franklin Smith explains why AD groups are at the center of access control and the governance universe, and explores what it takes to manage them. Randy also explains how Identity and Access Management Solutions from Dell Software automate entitlement requests, approvals, and protect Active Directory from unauthorized and non-compliant changes and synchronize Active Directory and systems that can't natively leverage AD groups. So download the white paper now, and learn how you can enable better access governance, reduce costs, and manage risk.
