Access Control is Easy: Use Active Directory Groups and Manage Them Well

Download Good access control results from avoiding the use of local groups, whether on Windows file servers, in Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint or elsewhere, and instead, assigning permissions to Active Directory (AD) groups.

The whitepaper also explores how and why to implement group ownership and attestation controls, and how group maintenance can be automated through self-service access request handling and policy-based rule assignments.
