Security Administration and Compliance Solution

Security is all about “the data.”

Many people use the term “data security” when they speak broadly about security. Attain Insight has found that security breaks down into a host of areas that include data, content, functionality, memberships, and more. Each has its own nuances and impacts how we authorize users in pursuit of the true role appropropriate view. Read on to learn more. 

Streamline And Automate Security Administration

Compliance regulations around the world are more and more pervasive as we continue in the digital age. If your organization is concerned about data security, data privacy or content security, then security is at the center of how you control access to information. 

All too often, implementing security to align with regulatory or compliance standards is a tedious, cumbersome, and manual process. It is inefficient and relies on people rather than well-formed security policies that apply security changes automatically and without fail.

Attain Insight Security 4X™ allows you to streamline and automate security administration processes including granting user access, delegating admin rights, and managing environments, while providing an audit of all changes.
