Adaptive Identity Governance Webinar Available On-demand Now
Summertime for me was always filled with fun in the sun and county fairs. Carnival rides, sticky cotton candy and of course don’t forget those infamous “guess how many jelly beans are in the jar” contests. I’ve always felt bad for the person that has to actually count each jelly bean in the jar. I mean even after counting all of them, this poor soul has to go through each answer to see who wins.
Certifying Access or Counting Beans?
These jelly bean contests are a lot like access certifications, which go something like this:
Line of business managers dredge through long spreadsheets and individually approve or revoke each user’s level of access. Sounds fun, right?
Actually, approving or revoking individual access is as tedious as counting jelly beans—except less fun because there aren’t prizes with access certifications. Instead, there are audits.
Because certifying individual access is tedious and inefficient, managers often validate every user’s access without really looking closely at it. This lack of attention means that some users might maintain inappropriate levels of access. Plus, access certifications only happen once in a while, so there could be unnoticed security vulnerabilities for months.
