Data Access Governance Software to Lean On
All too often, organizations get serious about controlling access to their data only after they experience a data breach. But there’s no reason to wait. Netwrix helps enable strong data access governance (DAG) across your file servers, as well as collaboration systems like SharePoint and SharePoint Online, by giving you deep insight into your unstructured data, including information about possible security gaps, effective permissions and data access patterns. With Netwrix, you can ensure that you have all the proper access security controls in place to prevent breaches.
IT risks that endanger your sensitive data
Remediating gaps in your data security is critical to data breach prevention. Start broad and see if there is data on your file servers that has access rights assigned in violation of access management best practices. Then get tactical and focus on identifying and classifying your sensitive data. With Netwrix, you can proactively harden your security controls and ensure the effectiveness of your other DAG practices, including assigning access rights in accordance with the least-privilege principle and maintaining strict control over data access.
Gain a bird’s-eye view of IT risks associated with unstructured data governance
Quickly detect all data on your file servers that is exposed to everyone or that has inappropriately assigned access rights.
Find sensitive data outside of a secure location Understand where exactly your sensitive data is kept and how much of this data is stored outside of a secure dedicated location. This clarity will help you prioritize your data access governance efforts.
Easily discover which sensitive data is at risk Identify sensitive information that is accessible by groups of users that shouldn’t have access to it, for example, the “Everyone” group.
Continuously review permissions to sensitive data
to ensure effective access governance
Ensure that only eligible users have access to sensitive data across your file servers and SharePoint by regularly reviewing effective permissions and involving data owners to verify that those permissions are appropriate.
Know who has access to what data on file servers
Regularly validate that all access rights to sensitive data on your file storages align with applicable data protection regulations, HR job descriptions and employee roles in the company and revoke all excessive or otherwise inappropriate access rights. Involve data owners in privilege attestation by subscribing them to the appropriate reports.
Untangle complex SharePoint permission structure
See through the tangled permissions layout on SharePoint and quickly find out users’ effective permissions to important data on your sites, how those permissions were granted and whether inheritance is broken, so you can ensure that corporate data is not touched by unauthorized personnel.
Detect privilege escalation attempts across your hybrid IT environment
Monitor changes to access rights on file servers and SharePoint sites, as well as changes to sharing and security in SharePoint Online, to ensure that each change is authorized and won’t jeopardize your data security efforts. Continuously monitor which access rights are modified, who made the change, and when and where it happened, so you can spot privilege escalation incidents across your file servers and respond before any damage is done.
Ensure your data access governance policies are followed by keeping data access events under control
Having access management processes written on paper is different from exercising access control across your network. Get the power to promptly detect and investigate attempts to access your unstructured data on file servers, SharePoint, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business that fall out of compliance with your access management policies.
Get consolidated statistics about data usage patterns across your file servers, SharePoint and Office 365. Quickly spot activity spikes that could be a sign of malicious activity, and drill down to see the critical details.

Improve Your IT Security Posture by Reducing Your IT Risks
Netwrix Auditor’s IT Risk Assessment reports help you identify weaknesses in your IT security policy settings and practices so you can continually improve your security posture. Quickly spot the risks that require your immediate attention and drill down to actionable details that enable prompt mitigation.
See Risk Assessment in Action
Identify and Close Security Gaps with Continuous Risk Assessment
IT risk assessment helps you identify vulnerabilities that put your information assets and business continuity at risk. Netwrix Auditor makes it easy to understand your current risk profile, prioritize your response, know what steps to take to remediate each issue, fine-tune risk levels to your particular environment and then review the new risk profile to assess the success of your efforts. By repeating this process, you can continuously improve your security posture, as well as provide proof to management or auditors of your compliance with internal policies or external regulations.
Gain a bird’s-eye view of your security posture
Understand your security posture in key areas at a glance. Automated monitoring and scoring enables you to easily prioritize your risk mitigation efforts. In addition to enabling cleanup prior to launching a security monitoring program, this dashboard also enables continual assessment and improvement in each of three key areas: permissions, data, and user and computer accounts. Start with the area where the risk is highest and dive into the specific risk factors that require your immediate attention.
Get actionable data about how to reduce the identified risks
Drill down into detailed reports to determine which policy settings, configurations, permissions or security practices you need to adjust to reduce each risk to an acceptable level. For example, the reports will identify which shared folders are accessible by “Everyone”, which user accounts are inactive but not disabled, which files contain sensitive data in their names or which accounts can access your network without authentication.
Tailor risk levels to your IT environment
No one knows your organization better than you do. If you find that the current thresholds for the various risk factors do not reflect your organization’s priorities and risk tolerance, adjust them to redefine when each risk factor is considered low, moderate or high. This fine-tuning will help you keep a close eye on the risks that are most important to your business and remove other factors from your radar.
Continuously evaluate your security posture
After you have remediated your top risk factors for data, permissions, and user and computer accounts, evaluate whether your security posture has improved, and repeat the risk assessment and mitigation process continuously. Present the IT Risk Assessment report to your management and auditors to prove that you have an effective risk mitigation program in place.
Satisfy Data Subject Access Requests Faster and More Efficiently with DSAR Software
Data subject access requests (DSAR) put more and more pressure on organizations around the world, given recent privacy regulations, such as GDPR and CCPA, with additional regulations on the way. Besides, as more individuals become aware of their rights, it’s not a question of “if”, but “when”, the flow of DSARs will grow dramatically. If you are not ready to respond, be prepared for more work, increased costs, significant penalties, and the loss of your customers’ trust. But there is a way to ease the burden – arm your organization with DSAR solution from Netwrix and handle requests more easily and with less expense.
The cost for managing DSARs increased by up to 74% during 2019, according to the 2020 Data Risk & Security Report. As the number of requests continues to grow, the cost of handling them will quickly become untenable unless you take action promptly. Free up budget for your long-term strategic projects by automating the process of finding and exporting personal information associated with an individual.
Deal with more requests in less time
Manually crawling through your various repositories to find all the personal information you store about an individual is not a scalable way to satisfy DSARs; it’s a guaranteed recipe for lots of stress and late nights at work. Since privacy regulations impose strict deadlines, you need a way to handle requests efficiently. Quickly discover and collect personal information across your various data stores, even as the trickle of DSARs turns into a flood.
Empower non-IT teams to handle DSARs themselves so you can stay focused on your primary tasks
Enable non-IT teams to handle DSARs quickly and easily
Enable legal, privacy and marketing teams to satisfy data subject access requests on their own, without any special training or expert knowledge of your IT environment. That way, the increasing flow of DSARs won’t overwhelm your busy schedule and keep you from your primary job of supporting your business.
