Access Management Quest
A Successful IT-SA 2018 Comes to an End
Requesting access rightpermissions from the lord of the castle – quickly and easily
A frustrated medieval hero stands before the locked castle gate with an assortment of wrong keys. But only the lord of the castle can grant him entry. At this year’s it-sa 2018 in Nuremberg, Europe’s biggest IT security fair, the Fileserver Management Suite was presented for the first time with a new marketing concept – complete with the antidote for ancient permissions (an energy drink) as well as experience points available at the booth for successfully completing the access management quest, in the form of gym bags. The Access Management Quest illustrates in particular the challenge that many IT departments face when disentangling legacy structures in Active Directory and file servers, and coordinating access management with departmental data controllers – or taking on the full responsibility on their behalf.
