YouAttest and Continuous Compliance for Identity Auditing

Every day, Companies are faced with the continuous, looming threat of a cyberattack or other incident that can have dire consequences. Highly regulated companies, especially, are feeling the pressure to mitigate this threat and are turning to continuous compliance to achieve to enforce IT governance policies and ensure that the organization is secure from these dangerous threats. 

Why is Continuous Compliance Needed?

As enterprise environments become more complex, it is vital to have automated compliance tools that can help deliver on rapid, repeated audit reports.

In the past, compliance was often seen as a static process – something that was done at defined intervals and then forgotten about in between. For example, an organization might complete an audit and then not think about compliance again until the next audit came around. Most enterprises are under multiple compliance guidances (SOX, SOC2, HIPAA/HITRUST, PCI-DSS, GLB, CMMC, etc.) and thus have a constant stream of compliance reports. Starting and stopping the compliance for each guidance is costly, expensive, and time-consuming. No other part of the puzzle is more time-consuming than identity governance, and constant attention to the data and reporting requirements is needed to stay compliant in an organization, big or small.

In today’s ever-changing business landscape, compliance needs to be seen as a continuous process. This is because new technologies and regulations are constantly being introduced, and enterprises need to be able to adapt quickly and easily to stay compliant. Compliance has become a more dynamic process with the rise of cloud computing and continuous delivery. This is where YouAttest comes in; by providing a simple to use tool that automates the access auditing for users, role, and groups for applications.  

YouAttest allows a risk manager to enact entitlement campaigns, where reviewers have to attest to  users, roles, and groups for applications that exist both on-premise and in the cloud. This helps enterprises identify potential compliance risks quickly and easily and then take the necessary steps to mitigate those risks.

It is impossible to conduct continuous compliance on a entitlement-laden enterprise in a manual fashiony – without a tool like Youttest.   Spreadsheets simply are not going to meet the workload – automation is required.
