The objective of access control is to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to files, data, and systems.

Access control is therefore an important component of an organization’s security policy and effective management is required to achieve compliance.

Access control tasks can be burdensome, resulting in insecure accounts, errors, and a lack of audit documentation.

SolarWinds® Access Rights Manager (ARM) is designed to assist IT and security admins to quickly and easily provision, deprovision, manage and audit user access rights to systems, data, and files so they can help protect their organizations from the potential risks of data loss and data breaches.

By analyzing user authorizations and access permission, admins get a visualization of who has access to what and when they accessed it.

With just a few clicks, customized reports can be generated to demonstrate compliance with most regulatory requirements.
