Why tenfold?

tenfold is the next generation of access rights management. With our game-changing and simple approaches and tools, chaotic and unsafe access structures have become a worry of the past. tenfold allows you to generate user accounts automatically and helps to visualize access rights, while incorporating data controllers into every step of the workflow.

What Makes tenfold Unique?

Access Rights Management Across Systems

The key to improving your company’s IT security lies in your ability to manage access rights from different systems in one central platform. Having one platform that allows you to collect and control all user data and access rights running together from different systems (like Active Directory®/file servers, Exchange®, SharePoint®, Dynamics NAV/CRM/AX, Office 365®, SAP®, CRM/ERP/ticket systems, etc.) is not just practical, but it also ensures the highest level of security. tenfold offers out-of-the box standard connectors for more than 60 supported systems. It is the unique, central platform for efficient and automated user and access rights management. The software will allow you to keep track of who has access to what systems (and why) at any given time, which reduces the risk of data abuse or theft tremendously. tenfold stores and documents all processes in an audit-proof (i.e. tamper-proof) fashion, which makes it easier to comply with legal regulations (e.g. GDPR, BSI, ISO 27000, etc.) and to pass audits.

Automation is key

Workflows are an integral component of the solution, as they help to automate the tasks related to user and access rights management and allow all significant positions in the company – end users, data owners, department managers, IT and HR departments – to be incorporated into the different processes. Example: an employee is assigned to a project that requires him or her to obtain some additional access rights. There are workflows in place to ensure that access rights can never be modified without the approval from the relevant data controllers. Using tenfold‘s self-service interface, the employee can send a request to the relevant department manager asking for the desired or necessary project rights. The manager receives an e-mail where he or she can respond to the request (i.e. approve or decline it). This significantly reduces the workload for IT staff because the responsibility of assigning the necessary access rights is now delegated to the relevant department managers.

To further simplify workflows, tenfold is equipped with a graphical BPMN-based workflow editor. It can be used for generating very complex workflows but requires no previous scripting knowledge from the user. Its graphical workflow illustrations also serve as records  and proof for IT audits. tenfold is furthermore equipped with a unique template and profile function, which allows you to compile different access rights into system-wide profiles. tenfold assigns and adapts these access rights automatically, according to the roles or departments of the staff members concerned. This feature is especially useful for avoiding problems that often occur when users are duplicated.

Another vital step toward automation can be found in form of our innovative tenfold plugins. The plugins can be downloaded, installed and customized directly from within the software itself. This allows customer adaptations to be performed almost entirely without previous scripting knowledge.

Integrated User Life Cycle Management

tenfold monitors the user life cycles of your staff members. This means that tenfold displays all IT user permissions and stores permission histories for all events, such as new entries to, or exits from, the company, as well as department or office changes. You can view any past user permissions at any time. tenfold also lets you pre-define permissions if you already know that someone will be needing a certain permission in the future.

Conform to legal requirements

tenfold provides a transparent overview of all permissions. Generating history reports in tenfold is simple and takes only a few seconds. This seamless documentation allows auditors to see which IT users had access to what systems at what stage. It also shows who approved the access requests. The information is logged during the automatic tenfold permission workflow process. The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which became effective in May 2018, requires documentation of all access permissions to IT systems. tenfold can help you to correctly and seamlessly record your access permissions and supports permission management for legal regulations, such as ISO 27000, BSI etc. To summarize: tenfold provides a software that allows IT data protection officers to protect themselves within the company.
