The importance of controlling access to information has never been greater. Organisations within both the private and public sectors are collecting and storing ever increasing volumes of sensitive data. At the same time, businesses are extending their operations outside traditional boundaries - authorised access to information at anytime, from anywhere, by employees, business partners, and customers has become a fundamental requirement across all industries.
External factors are also forcing organisations to improve the way in which they manage access to information. Legal and regulatory requirements and guides such as APRA's PPG234 and Sarbanes Oxley have raised the minimum acceptable level of access control, and in respect of Sarbanes Oxley penalties for non-compliance are significant. In addition, customer expectations regarding the protection of their personal data are at an all-time high.
