As part of Fortra™’s Core Security Access Assurance Suite, Core Access provides access requests and approvals in a centralized place for simplified and streamlined access management. Core Access is a convenient web portal where end users can request access and managers can review, approve, or deny access. Using a shopping cart approach, Core Access delivers an efficient and user-friendly experience—replacing the use of paper forms, emails, and tickets to manage access. Additionally, the ability to leverage roles enables access to be assigned quickly and accurately.

Core Access provides centralized and simplified access control by managing how access is requested. Users request access to the systems and applications they need and can track the status of their request in the web portal. As users log into the centralized Core Access portal, they receive a personalized page with all their current requests and statuses. This personalized view streamlines the access request process for employees, managers, application owners, and IT teams.

Providing one place for users to request access ensures users go through the appropriate channels and that proper approval and fulfillment policies are followed. Core Access also enables unique approval workflows to be tailored to any type of organizational structure. Organizations can also use Core Access to automate provisioning around the user lifecycle. This enables authorized individuals to leverage Core Access to quickly disable user access and preventing any opportunity for employees or other users to retain access to data upon their departure from the organization.

How we are different

- Simplify and Streamline Access Requests at Scale: Users can easily request access to necessary applications and track their status in the intuitive web portal. Requests are automatically routed to the appropriate approver to review requests, grant approvals, and manage access. Approvers can easily retrieve detailed user-request information, providing a simple and clear view of access requests and the context surrounding them.

- Improve Security and Mitigate Risk: Making sure that users have appropriate access goes a long way towards bolstering an organization’s risk management and its security posture, ensuring that users are operating within well-defined roles and are not overprovisioned. Core Access ensures users receive the access needed to do their job and nothing more with an easy-to-use approval system that follows company policies.

- Enhance Compliance, Review, and Certification Processes: Limiting access to only those individuals that need it enables companies to stay more compliant with government regulations and industry standards. Core Access ensures that access is strictly controlled and enables organizations to prove they are taking action to meet compliance requirements by creating a comprehensive audit trail of requests and approval activities.
