IDdriven: Reducing the risk for data breaches

| Source: IDdriven Inc.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDdriven, Inc., (OTC:IDDR), an innovative provider of premises and cloud-based Identity and Access Management ("IAM") solutions is providing comments on protecting data against unauthorized access.

Last week’s information about sensitive data of 143 mln people stolen by hackers from a major credit reporting agency, and impacting almost half the US population, again puts the spotlight on protecting data against unauthorized access.

A recent study shows that 50% of ex-employees can still access corporate apps and documents after they leave the company, and in a number of cases have been responsible for data breaches.

The internal threat of data leaks and data breaches is real and is something that has to be mitigated with automated identity and access management systems like IDdriven. A problem that is growing as corporations are storing more personal and sensitive data and the ability to sell and monetize this data by ex/disgruntled employees is easier than ever before.

The control of over who has access to data, and the rigorous enforcement of certification of that access is a very important tool to make sure that your data can only be accessed by people who need to have that access to do their jobs, and have no access to data they do not need. This reduces the risk for unwanted and unneeded data breaches.

Arend Verweij, CEO of IDdriven, Inc. stated, “IDdriven is designed to make sure that provisioning and deprovisioning of employees and contractors is done timely. The certification campaigns of our system will force management to relook at all access to corporate data on a regular basis. This is the only way to avoid that to many people having too much access to sensitive data”.
