DSB Selects Omada SharePoint Governance

Efficient Management of SharePoint Access Rights at DSB

 

 

 


SharePoint as a strategic intranet platform
SharePoint 2010 is the strategic platform for DSB’s intranet - packed with information ranging from general company news, to sensitive information targeted at specific audiences. To ensure that SharePoint is a trusted and secure platform for collaboration DSB has implemented Omada’s SharePoint Governance Manager. 

 

The challenge of information governance
DSB needed a solution to address the escalating challenges experienced by the site administrators: 

  • The 350 site administrators found it difficult and time consuming to manage access to sites using standard SharePoint group structures and naming conventions
  • Incorrect, manual permission assignments caused extra workload on the help-desk to provide users with appropriate access to information
  • Employees were issued with incorrect access, such as ‘full control’ to sites, which violated internal policies and posed a security threat

 

Unmanageable groups and permissions
Due to lack of overview of groups and access rights, site administrators found it difficult to assign correct permissions to users, and faced the risk of potentially giving users the ability to create new permission levels which didn’t comply with the standard policy.

“When site administrators created new sites or broke the permission inheritance, the new groups created automatically by SharePoint had names which didn’t comply with DSBs’ policy  making the SharePoint group structure difficult to govern”, says Michel Jules André Beauvais – head of DSB’s SharePoint department. 

On top of these challenges, DSB was unable to get an overview of the assigned user permissions to answer the simple question of “who has access to what?”, and to document whether intranet security configuration was in compliance with internal regulations.
