Ubusha is an information security service provider, specializing in protecting access to information through Identity, Access, Data Governance and Knowledge Management solutions. Ubusha begun in 2001 as an Identity Management systems integrator. Since then we have seen the industry mature from using these tools in automating the provisioning of user accounts and mailboxes, through to full featured security solutions. The solutions included the managing of user accounts and access, to compliance and governance focused projects. In 2016 we expanded our focus to also look to our customers’ requirements around Knowledge Management and how content is created, stored and archived throughout its lifecycle. Identity and Access Management solutions can be very broadly encompassing, and can mean many different things to different people. At Ubusha we prefer to talk about the solutions that we offer all in context of how they protect “access” to your corporate “information”. This information exists in many places in your organization: enterprise applications, databases and infrastructure like file shares and sharepoint. The solutions offered by Ubusha all aim to either put in place the controls, or to monitor the controls, that protect access to this informationwww.ubusha.co.za
Inconsistency in policy, non-compliance with governance regulation, the growing need for behavioural analysis using data, and lagging behind attackers are identified as key challenges to adequately protect critical resources
