Administrators Sniffing about by the Help of Access Privileges

As n-tv.de, reports system administrators often use their privileged position to spy on confidential data in their organizations. Not as much of a problem, if a solution like ARTEC’s EMA® appliance is being used!

According to a news report, more than one third of the system administrators make use of their position, to get a hand on confidential data. That IT staff even blatantly threatens to steal critical data about product developments or marketing strategies in case of their layoff, says the report by n-tv.de under reference to Computer Zeitung.

No problem is what some EMA® users may think because they set up an efficient basis to protect sensitive data from abuse; for instance by the help of the appliance’s implemented 4-eye-principle.
