Challenges

The CoreCivic team had initially set up security using the native JD Edwards EnterpriseOne security tools. Soon they found that these were difficult to manage and it took a long time to execute the work. As the use of JD Edwards expanded to more facilities, their System Administration team could see that the security management task would grow increasingly complex and time-consuming, to the extent that they would need to employ an additional person just to manage the security. During audits, it took an inordinate amount of time to retrieve the information that was required by the auditors to prove compliance. CoreCivic approached started looking out for solutions that would make the security management task rapid and seamless.

Solutions & Results

CoreCivic decided to implement Pathlock’s Role Design to enable them to cope with the workload of managing security at multiple facilities. They found that it makes the task more straightforward and much less time-consuming, so they have been able to roll out JD Edwards software to more locations without increasing their headcount.

After undertaking the initial training, the CoreCivic team found that Role Design is very easy to learn and use, and they were able to adopt it very quickly. They use row-level security to allow staff at various facilities to access the subset of records that is relevant to them. The ability to create and copy components has quickened the task of implementing security at new locations. 

CoreCivic’s auditors require complex reports and earlier it used to take a long time to meet their requests. Much of the information can now be produced very quickly using the standard Role Design reports, reducing the company’s audit costs.

With Pathlock reports, we can now produce much of the information required by our auditors very quickly and our audit costs have reduced. The fact that we didn’t need to employ an additional technical person to just handle the security workload easily cost-justified the purchase of the software.”
