IT Department

You are here

The Situation

Your main requirement is to maintain an agile and secure IT department. You need to respond to business requirements rapidly: the company network is growing, new employees need user accounts and access rights to a range of resources.

ITIL, COBIT 5 or the Microsoft Operations Framework demand unambiguous access rights - processes in IT service management.

Optimizing security and processes requires in-depth knowledge of current activities.

What you win with 8MAN

  • Knowledge and data is secured in the network
  • You create a more agile and standardized IT
  • Access rights are documented in accordance with basic BSI IT protection and ISO 27001 standards
  • Process monitoring enables ongoing optimization



Your administrator is unable to rapidly determine who is able to access any given resource. It is not possible to meet requirements for compliance, IT security and data protection. Access rights assignment is not monitored and the process cannot be controlled.

If unauthorized access to sensitive directories does occur, it is impossible to trace afterwards. The frequently occurring process of creating users and managing accounts is sketched down on paper, but not executed efficiently.

The 8MAN Solution

8MAN gives your administrator information on the access rights situation in the network at any time. Errors are corrected immediately and with a few simple steps. Reports that are easy to understand and auditable are generated in a few clicks and sent automatically.

Our security monitoring captures all rights assignment activities: You know when and where a user is assigning rights, and can optimize the process. Directories requiring special protection are secured with FS Logger on the fileserver: Data theft can no longer go undetected 8MAN makes a defined process reality: Access rights management activities can be assigned roles, based on a company's size and structure.
