Securonix Announces Access Scanner

Scanner automatically identifies and helps remove high-risk access in critical business applications and systems

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Securonix, the leader in Security Analytics, announced the new product release of "Access Scanner" which automatically identifies and helps remove high-risk access in critical business applications and systems. Access Scanner uses advanced peer group and outlier analytics to detect high-risk access that can be used in access certification and access request processes. "Our customers are certifying the top 2% - 5% of the riskiest access and seeing up to a 80% access revocation while drastically cutting the compliance burden on the business. The solution can be setup in a matter of days with no business involvement", says Sachin Nayyar, Founder and CEO of Securonix. The product is available now as a free download from the Securonix website.

Increasingly, access control is the last line of defense against both internal and external attacks. With millions of access privileges to manage across thousands of users and hundreds of applications, organizations continue to struggle with rubberstamping practices in their certification process and very cumbersome access request processes. Securonix provides an innovative, fast and cost effective way to reduce the risk associated with access and meeting compliance requirements.

Access Scanner integrates with every major IAM and identity access governance product while connecting natively to major business applications and systems for delivering a continuous stream of access risk intelligence.

"We had the Access Scanner deployed in our environment and generating results in less than one hour," says Raz Glazer, Director of Managed Services at Clarizen, a rapidly growing cloud-based enterprise work collaboration software company.

"We immediately were able to expand upon our ability to make sure that only employees in specific roles have access to our sensitive information. With the rapid growth that our company is experiencing, keeping track of access entitlements can be challenging. The Access Scanner eliminates this challenge for us."

"Managing access in today's large complex enterprise applications requires a new approach not entirely dependent on the business to manually identify high-risk access. Companies need security intelligence to automatically and continuously identify what is high-risk access so they can focus and streamline their access management processes from requests through certification. At Securonix our whole focus is delivering this security intelligence capability and the release of Access Scanner is our way of demonstrating the ease and power of the technology"

said Tanuj Gulati, Founder and CTO of Securonix.

The "Securonix Access Scanner" is available now for immediate download on the Securonix website (www.securonix.com/access-scanner)
