Keep Permissions Under Control
To make sure that users can only access IT assets for as long as they need them, previously assigned permissions must be regularly reviewed.
In tenfold, access to IT assets is managed and reviewed by the data owners who most closely work with the users and resources in question.
tenfold allows organizations to assign data owners to specific resources in order to manage access and respond to self-service requests. Additionally, data owners are responsible for reviewing permissions they have assigned.
User access reviews – also known as access audits or privilege recertification – ensure that old and unnecessary permissions are promptly removed, protecting sensitive data from theft and misuse.

To make the review process as swift and painless as possible, tenfold automatically notifies data owners of upcoming audits and compiles all pending items into a handy checklist. Renewing or revoking permissions is a matter of a single click.
tenfold provides each data owner with a personalized overview of access rights they have assigned and need to reconfirm or revoke. Completing the permissions audit takes just minutes.
Regular reminders to data owners ensure that reviews are completed swiftly. Authorized users can also access a read-only overview tracking progress across the entire organization.
Protect Sensitive Data
The fewer systems a user can access, the less information is at risk if their account is hacked, stolen or exploited. Periodic access reviews help mitigate the risk of data breaches and minimize the potential impact of ransomware attacks.
To prevent cybercriminals and malicious insiders from exploiting access rights, the principle of least privilege requires organizations to restrict access to a necessary minimum. Employees should only be given permissions that are absolutely necessary for their work.
Since the roles, responsibilities and permissions of users are constantly changing, the only way to enforce least privilege access is through regular audits.

Frequently Asked Questions
The intervals between access reviews can be freely adjusted to suit your needs. tenfold also allows you to set different intervals for specific permissions in order to review access to critical systems more frequently. To prevent privilege creep and outdated permissions, access reviews should be conducted at least twice a year, ideally every three months. However, certain security standards may dictate a specific interval your organization has to follow.
To ensure that access reviews are completed in time, tenfold provides a central overview where authorized users can track the progress of ongoing reviews across the entire organization. You can also set backup actions that automatically trigger in the event that data owner does not complete their review in the intended timeframe. Possible fallbacks range from reminders to the data owner in question to revoking all pending permissions.
The automated access review process covers all applications and services managed through tenfold. Whenever a data owner assigns a new permission, tenfold documents the change and includes it in their next audit. This ensures the ongoing control of IT privileges across all systems.
Although data owners do not have the technical expertise of IT admins, they have a much closer relationship to the people, data and assets they work with every day. This allows them to give a far more accurate assessment of who in their department needs access to what. For access reviews to represent business needs and day-to-day operations across all parts of your organization, it is therefore essential to make the review process easy to complete even for individuals without an IT background.
