In the spirit of the Zero Trust concept: "Never Trust, Always Verify", the cloud-based access control solution enables companies to effectively control access to their resources, comply with security policies and improve employee productivity. As part of a comprehensive digitization strategy and the New Work topic, cybersecurity from the cloud is one of the most important factors for sustainable success.


The overarching goal of this partnership is to support companies of all sizes and industries in their digitization efforts with security solutions that are as user-friendly as they are effective, thus enabling them to remain competitive. A variety of advanced technologies and tools provide the basis for an efficient data use and processing.

DriveLock 365 Access Control 

The cloud-based access control solution is designed to manage access to resources within an organization. The centralized platform makes it possible to grant or revoke access to various resources such as files, applications, and services based on predefined policies and roles. Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) to resources can be further defined based on various criteria such as user roles, departments, locations and devices. The solution continuously checks permissions as well as attributes and automatically adjusts them according to the specifications. This ensures that only authorized users have access to sensitive information and resources at all times without any administrative effort. 

The solution also provides real-time insights into access control activity. This gives data owners complete transparency about who accessed which resources, when and where. This helps organizations identify potential security threats and take appropriate action.

The new DriveLock 365 Access Control is a powerful tool that enables organizations to securely and efficiently manage access to their resources while reducing the risk of unauthorized use and potential security breaches.
