Sony Life Safeguards Data on More Than 4.4 Million Customers With CA Access Control
In April 2005, a Personal Data Protection Act came into effect in Japan, which requires companies to exercise due care in the handling of personal data on their customers. Although Sony Life had already implemented appropriate security measures across its IT infrastructure, the company wanted to heighten its level of protection with server access control. Using CA Access Control, Sony Life is able to prevent unauthorised access to eight UNIX and Windows servers, which run a number of critical systems. Using the CA solution, the company can audit the actions carried out during each authorised user session and match these to work application forms.
