Case Study: NBC Holdings

NBC Holdings (Pty) Ltd (NBC) is the first black-owned and managed employee benefits company in South Africa. Today NBC is a leading force in the South African employee benefits arena, providing a comprehensive range of employee benefits products and services to 120 registered pension and provident funds, representing the retirement fund savings of more than 350,000 members.

As a financial institution, NBC Holdings needs to closely monitor access to data. When data was moved or deleted it was difficult and time-consuming for the IT department to figure out who moved it, and where. In addition, there were some instances in which it was necessary to provide a record of email messages that were read, sent, or deleted and the IT department required an efficient way to produce this information. (Native Windows and Exchange auditing tools could not provide the granularity NBC required and on their own provided no actionable intelligence or activity analysis).

Further, they wanted to relieve the IT helpdesk of some manual access provisioning tasks, as these were very time-consuming, and the helpdesk often lacked context about the data to make accurate decisions about who should have access.  Even identifying who had access to a particular data-set had been inefficient and resource-intensive. NBC is now able to identify data owners and involve them in the authorization processes through automation.
