protected-networks to showcase 8MAN, a unique Information Trust Software, at IT Decisions 2012

Intuitive, graphical software to simplify and streamline user access rights management, providing instant reporting and delegation to data owners

Online PR News – 20-June-2012 – London – protected-networks, a Berlin based software company, will be exhibiting for the second year at IT Decisions 2012, to be held in London on the 26/27th June. The company will demonstrate 8MAN, a graphical interface that displays the access rights situation in Microsoft Active Directory group structures, NTFS permissions and SharePoint, down to the individual user level. Visitors to stand 325 will be able to see how questions such as "Who actually has access to this directory?" or "Which folders are available to X?" can be easily answered and reports automatically generated.

In a Microsoft Active Directory environment, access rights security is identified as the weakest link, leaving client sensitive data highly vulnerable to breaches and other security risks. 8MAN addresses this limitation; it is a fully integrated software solution that manages the Active Directory, file server and SharePoint access rights. It limits access rights to a “need to know” basis, thereby significantly mitigating data security risks.

Many organizations are grappling with demanding security and compliance issues amidst proliferating internal data, having a list of scenarios such as: Who has access to proprietary information in finance, business development and especially customer and supplier information? These questions barely scratch the surface of much larger compliance related challenges emerging due to lack of a robust security and access management methodology.

The company has several active partners as well as a local sales team in the UK and is aggressively focusing on further strengthening its presence in the region. “In this highly competitive market place, we are confident about the distinctive features of 8MAN and its ability to support businesses. Streamlined access rights do not only facilitate data protection and help meet compliance requirements, but also tangibly save cost and time,” commented Steven Bennett, Head of Channel for EMEA region.
At the event, Steven Bennett will be addressing audiences on the first morning of the event, in Session B2, on Next Generation Identity Management.

A certified Microsoft partner, protected-networks will be present at the event with UK reseller partners – Guardian Technologies and Digital Pathways.
