Tools4ever's ERAM Wins Best "Network Access Control" at the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Tools4ever, a worldwide market leader in providing access governance software and solutions, announces today that it has been named a winner for best “Network Access Control” in the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. Enterprise Resource Authorization Manager (ERAM), was so awarded especially because of its audit aiding capabilities, and the security features built into the access governance solutions.

ERAM provides clear insight into unstructured data to any organization. While research firm Gartner estimations that more than 80 percent of business information is stored as unstructured data, this drastically increases the complexity of access management. Without the correct software solutions, like ERAM, it is impossible to guarantee that this data is effectively protected.

ERAM clearly shows who has access, who should have access, who owns the data, who has tried to access certain data and where sensitive information has been stored.

Features of ERAM:

  • Provides direct insight into all the access privileges relevant to the file system through the rights structure in Active Directory groups, ACLS and direct access.
  • Offers a detailed audit trail of the actions (edit, remove, create, move, etc.) that each employee has performed for what file and which directory, and at what time.
  • Makes recommendations with regards to the set of rights that can be reduced based on the actual activities performed by an employee.
  • Determines which employee owns (a particular subset) of the data.
  • Controls requests and access received through the owner of the data.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards selection body is made up of cybersecurity experts who understand the current threats faced by businesses and organizations, and the solutions required to protect these firms from breach. Given this understanding, the award carries a great deal of significance within the security sector. 

Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever said, “We are thrilled to join a legacy of cybersecurity leaders by being recognized with such a significant award from such an impressive organization. Tools4ever makes it a priority to excel in this category, showing fantastic prowess, particularly in the areas of reporting and security and we couldn’t be more proud of this accolade.”

Tools4ever’s products also have been listed as finalists in 11 other categories with breakthrough security software, including HelloID and Identity Access Management (IAM).

“Congratulations to Tools4Ever for winning the Network Access Control category of the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, founder of the 350,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn, which organizes the awards program. “With more than 450 entries, the 2017 awards are highly competitive. All winners and finalists reflect the very best in leadership, excellence and innovation in today's cybersecurity industry.”
