Aveksa, Inc., the market-leading provider of enterprise access governance solutions, today announced that Deutsche Bank AG, a leading global investment bank with a strong and profitable private clients franchise, has deployed Aveksa to automate its access governance processes across its entire enterprise. Deutsche Bank will leverage Aveksa Compliance Manager's process and policy automation capabilities to efficiently ensure that every employee's access to corporate information is governed effectively and in compliance with regulatory mandates.
"Ensuring appropriate user access to information resources is of critical importance to our compliance and risk management efforts at Deutsche Bank," said Berthold Kerl, managing director and head of IT security governance for Deutsche Bank AG. "Aveksa has enabled us to more efficiently identify orphaned user accounts and prevent inappropriate access across our entire organization. Aveksa also provides us with an automated access governance model that simplifies compliance with regulations in a complex environment, while reducing the compliance burden on the organization."
Aveksa Compliance Manager is part of the Aveksa Enterprise Access Governance Platform, the industry's first comprehensive solution for access governance, risk and compliance management. The Aveksa Enterprise Access Governance Platform also includes the Aveksa Role Manager, which enables role discovery, modeling and maintenance; and the Aveksa Access Request and Change Manager, which combines a business-centric interface and an automated, streamlined request process with policy controls to ensure that access is appropriate.
"For global organizations like Deutsche Bank, governing user access while keeping pace with the speed of business change has never been more challenging, and automation is the key to enabling sustainable compliance and effective access risk management," said Deepak Taneja, president and CTO of Aveksa. "Aveksa empowers organizations through a set of streamlined processes that make proper governance of user access part of daily operating practices and procedures. Deutsche Bank's deployment of Aveksa Compliance Manager is representative of many of our customers' requirements, which include the ability to scale across thousands of users, dozens of regulatory requirements, thousands of information resources and millions of entitlements."
With the Aveksa Access Governance Platform, organizations such as Deutsche Bank can now leverage the industry's most scalable solution to efficiently address security and regulatory demands through a collaborative process that automates manual tasks, enforces accountability, provides a system of record for the auditable evidence of compliance, reduces access-related business risk and creates an effective process for access delivery across the entire enterprise.
