Dynamic Access Control is one of the most important innovations of the past 20 years in the area of IT security.
With Dynamic Access Control (DAC), users can manage the access to files regardless of their storage location. Moreover, the user rights, the devices and the classification of a file decide whether the access is granted or not. The comprehensive classificaiton with dg classification thereby creates the prerequisite for the implementation of DAC.
The support and control of file access rights is becoming more and more difficult and complex due to the increasing collaboration with external colleagues, the increasing use of mobile devices as well as new cloud concepts. Deficient and too rough access rights have become one of the largest security risks within the IT.
Until today, the access rights of files have been basically managed via the storage location. If a user had the right to access the storage folder of a file, he also had the right to access the file itself. If the file is removed or copied, the access rights change as well. The form of access rights control results in a hardly manageable numbers of rules within the Active Directory.
Dynamic Access Control (DAC) which was introduced with Windows Server 2012 is the solution to this problem. DAC is a new mechanism for the authorization of file systems now which enables the IT to manage the acccess rights centrally. That way, maintaining the system is not only a lot easier, but also more precise. Access rights are managed according to the individual user, to the device and according to the classification of each file. Thus, the acces control does no longer depend on the concrete storage location of the file.
Thus, the classifcation becomes the most important tool to manage access rights. dataglobal offers a software solution for the precise, fully automated classification of file in close cooperation with Microsoft.That way, we create the foundation for a fast and efficient implementation of Dynamic Access Control.
