NorthStar provides visibility into all of the user privileges and entitlements across your infrastructure so you can quickly identify risks, spot compliance issues and make the right decisions to improve the effectiveness of your security posture.
Privileges Meet Continuous Monitoring
Long gone are the days of the cumbersome tasks of manually gathering and analyzing data from disparate sources. NorthStar’s comprehensive data, analytics and reports are refreshed through its automated processes, giving you the ability to track what people have access to and the changes in those privileges over time.
