The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be applied as of 25 May 2018. The Swiss Data Protection Act (DSG) is currently under revision and is expected to enter into force in 2018 as well. The goal is to increase the transparency of data processing and to strengthen the self-determination of affected persons about their data. With waave, a large number of identities, user accounts and access permissions can be managed securely, efficiently and in compliance with data protection.
The identity management processes are monitored and documented so that it is possible to track who changed what and when. Extensive documentation can support compliance requirements related to privacy laws.
All accounts and the associated permissions are stored in a central location, so there are no duplicates. There is only one central platform for all authorization management tasks, which increases data quality and prevents incorrect entries.
Upon entry, resignation, maternity leave or change of position of an employee, accounts and their access rights are automatically created, changed or removed. It is ensured that users receive exactly those accesses which are necessary for them and that these are reliably changed or deleted when leaving the company or when changing position.
Automated processes and a simple user interface make it easy to make changes without expertise, e.g. also be made by the HR. Fewer permissions need to be granted on target systems, which increases security in the enterprise and reduces IT dependency.
