Monitoring Users While Reviewing 95% Less Data

Leading companies work with Jabil to drive innovation and customer satisfaction. Jabil helps its customers leverage technology to deliver world class products through optimized logistics and design engineering.

Jabil established a global governance organization to orchestrate an org-wide security redesign project. The company chose Pathlock to monitor all user activities within their SAP systems and, as a result, decreased the amount of manually reviewed user activity data by 95%. Now, risk owners are alerted in real time when risks are detected. Pathlock has helped Jabil simultaneously eliminate manual data review and improve its security posture.

Why Pathlock
  • Provide full suite of risk analysis, data security, user access management, and access control tools
  • Monitor all user activity with controls and risks prioritized based on potential business impact
  • Monitor all user activity with controls and risks prioritized based on potential business impact
After: Value Driven Results

Pathlock’s data protection capabilities have helped us enhance security without disrupting work. Users need to have the right access to do their jobs, and Pathlock tackles that while protecting sensitive information.

Director
Governance Risk and Compliance

Pathlock allows us to find out on a real time basis where access violations are happening, identify exactly what caused them, and review whether action needs to be taken. We’re monitoring millions of activities daily which enables us to focus only on the items that represent true SOD conflicts or risks.

Senior Director
Finance

Pathlock retrieves activity data from users so we can understand where access conflicts are. The risk matrix implemented in Pathlock allows us to measure potential impact in Euros for each risk and see the actual user activities that violate access policy. And of course, it’s all automated.

Senior Project Manager
Finance and Audit

At Citrix, we look at access risks and conflicts across systems, not app by app. Pathlock allowed us to standardize and automate access management and SOD analysis across our key systems. We’re more efficient because our teams don’t need to learn new processes for different systems, and we’re more secure because we have cross-system visibility.
