Why is access control important?
Access control helps provide employees with accurate access to the relevant business data, while ensuring they are protected from cyber threats. These safeguards can make a difference in ensuring your company is successful while protecting your data, and your clients’ privacy.
As security remains a priority with the changing landscape, organisations are implementing new policies around their corporate technology, to manage access. SSO and 2FA are common points discussed when planning data security and access control.
It’s essential for all businesses to have a secure and robust identity management system to ensure the appropriate permissions for different members of your company, based on responsibilities and positions.
Access control protects your resources, data and other essential applications, which reside on both premises and in the cloud. It also allows users the ability to switch between these locations without manual interference from admin staff, as well as stopping unauthorised devices from accessing sensitive information on your network.
