Acton, Mass.-based Lumigent Technologies released a new module for its flagship auditing and assessment solution, Audit DBT. The module, Obsolete User Manager, addresses a key threat to ensuring effective IT controls by automating the management of accounts of transitioned or terminated employees, the vendor says.
As employees are hired, change functions or leave the company, their roles can change significantly and, accordingly, so should their access to crucial company information. Obsolete User Manager allows for automated identification and management of accounts, integration with HR systems, centralized visibility and reporting capabilities, according to Lumigent.
"Every type of company must find a way to manage its employees' accounts, and for the first time, the Obsolete User Manager provides an automated way to do that for the databases where the most important data is stored," said Cliff Pollan, CEO of Lumigent, in a release. He added that the new module reduces the risk of compromised data and failed audits, while making business more efficient.
