DCI Selects PowerBroker Safe to Meet Regulatory Compliance

Posted April 15, 2011    Peter McCalister

DCI, a developer of core bank processing software, is a privately owned company founded in 1963. The corporation delivers technology solutions that allow banks to prosper and thrive. Because of the nature of the company and the services it provides, heavy IT support is necessary for the deletion, migratino, and back-up of large amounts of sensitive data.

To ensure the ability to support long-term strategic growth, DCI called for an extensive internal audit. The goal was to assess the situation and implement a solution that would satisfy both compliance and productivity demands. Among the areas of focus were user access rights, password rotation policies, and access history. The comprehensive evaluation found manually monitoring and managing over 1,300 users to be a daunting and ineffective way to keep the enterprise secure. In such a technical environment and with so many users needing a variety of access rules, a solution was necessary that would satisfy these requirements in addition to minimizing the disruption of IT flow. This is where BeyondTrust comes in.

DCI selected the BeyondTrust PowerBroker Password Safe solution following months of extensive review and analysis. The company sited regulatory compliance, ease of deployment, and scalability and flexibility of solution as the main purchase points. The solution also allows them to generate reports, automate the management of users and applications, as well as automatically purge unused user IDs and access rights from the system.
