Perform User Access Reviews to meet aggressive timelines for SOX Audit

2 min readMar 18, 2021


All publicly-traded companies are subject to the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002. For compliance, every company needs to ensure it is conducting periodic access reviews and certifications, maintaining segregation of duty (SOD), managing access rights for on-boarding, off-boarding, and role changes. The severe nature of non-compliance necessitates that companies adopt identity governance and access products that are faster to implement and quick to conduct access reviews.

A number of publicly traded companies are using SecurEnds over competing products to achieve faster time to value. SecurEnds offer the following:

  • Access Certification: Automate inadequate and/or time-consuming manual access certification, user attestations, etc. to quickly meet security compliance and internal IT control requirements
  • Audit Evidence: Demonstrate compliance with standards and provide proof-of-compliance using pre-defined audit reports, audit trail mechanisms and certification of access
  • Segregation of duty (SOD): Create rules that prevent risky sets of access from being granted to a person. For example, the ability to view a bank account and transfer funds to outside accounts
  • Analytics & Reporting: Use AI/ML driven reports to identify risk outliers and generate drill-down reports to identify risky entitlements
  • Automate Provisioning and De-provisioning: Streamline the review and verification (or revocation) of user access to different apps and resources.
  • Centralize Visibility: Track access of all users (including contractors and partners) who join, move or leave the company
  • Workflow Automation: Self-service access request capabilities enable users to request access, approve and certify access leading to productivity gains
