Managing access rights can be challenging without the correct processes in place. Data centers need to know who is in their buildings and for how long. Monitoring temporary access and managing cardholder credentials for employees and visitors can be time consuming and difficult when using a manual approach, leading to inefficiencies and a significant risk to security.
Data centers face strict regulations as they relate to access management, and failure to comply and enforce policies can lead to hefty fines. Along with managing access requests from visitors and complying to industry regulations, data centers also face insider threats from employees with privileged credentials. A recent article by Forbes mentioned that 74% of their companies’ data breaches came from employees with privileged credentials accessing secured areas.
