“Establishing strong segregation of duties (SoD) policies and protecting sensitive Personally identifiable information (PII) has never been more important. Given the ubiquitous nature of application access, it’s easy for organizations to lose sight of a user’s role; thus exposing themselves to potential policy violations. By considering fine-grained policy management solutions and expanding the use of data masking, organizations can establish strong SoD policies that are as dynamic as their data – and that can adapt accordingly to various contexts of access. When in place, users only gain access to the data they are authorized to view and modify. Thus, providing maximum security and compliance; all without limiting user productivity.”
