Access rights to files were assigned at Andritz in the past years in accordance with Microsoft’s recommended procedures. For this purpose, special groups were manually created in Active Directory, which were then granted access to the corresponding files. The memberships in these groups were also maintained manually.
Andritz has grown considerably in recent years, and so this manual maintenance became more and more tedious. In addition, it was difficult to track which users got which rights when and who authorized these rights. Also, the revocation or delegation of authorizations became very time-consuming. So a new software was needed to solve this problem!
It was important to Andritz that this could be easily integrated into existing structures and that it offered the possibility of assigning authorizations without having to involve IT. In addition, it must be possible to document the assignment of rights. And that’s how the BAYOOSOFT Access Manager came into play.
“Because it was the best fit in our existing landscape and met our requirements to a large extent. Alternative products were mostly part of a whole framework with features we didn’t need, but which were reflected in the price. Access Manager works in a way that doesn’t involve major organizational or technical changes,” recalls Helmut Igl.
