Data can be among your most valuable assets. You have to secure data for your own business, but external regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and other data privacy regulations bring their own requirements. You need data management that ensures privacy and mitigates risk.
Micro Focus Storage Manager works in both Microsoft and OES networks so you can employ user identity information to either grant or deny access to sensitive data.
For example, you can create a policy that provisions users who work in the payroll department with home folders that have payroll department–appropriate disk space, the files payroll department team members need, and access rights to network areas containing sensitive payroll data. Micro Focus Storage Manager ensures that users who aren’t part of the payroll department won’t be able to access this sensitive data.
In addition to enforcing policies for data access, Micro Focus Storage Manager lets you perform path analyses to view network access rights (either direct or inherited) from any server and volume, or share to any particular folder. This ensures that you always know whose access goes where.
Not archiving important data can be risky. Micro Focus Storage Manager lets you archive data to the storage medium you specify so that you always have it for compliance requirements. You can protect yourself against audit failures by reporting detailed information. And by using Micro Focus Storage Manager to limit the types of content users can store on your company network, you protect yourself against liability claims.
