Firefighter Capabilities for Workday
Privileged Access Management and Firefighting for Workday
Privileged Access Management and Firefighting capabilities such as compliant emergency access and support are now available for Workday. Greenlight’s solution provides end-to-end access lifecycle management for super users including access request, approval, credentialing, and activity auditing for chosen business applications.
Fast and Compliant Emergency Access
Numerous situations arise where an organizations needs to grant “super-user” access to employees under unusual circumstances. These are instances of “exceptional access” that fall outside the user’s typical job role or responsibilities and will typically create access policy violations that need to be highly supervised. Despite the need, access privileges that create risks, such as segregation of duties conflicts, need to be mitigated and requires the maintenance of an audit log of all super-user access activities in order to satisfy regulatory compliance requirements.
Monitoring Super Users
Greenlight’s firefighting solution for Workday provides end-to-end access lifecycle management for super users using a closed-loop process for request, approval, credentialing, activity monitoring and auditing within business systems.

Comprehensive Privileged Access Management and Firefighting for Workday
Greenlight offers an efficient, consistent, structured and compliant process for granting temporary, highly privileged access. It provides a well-controlled environment for providing emergency or highly sensitive access that is performed either on an ad hoc basis by IT personnel or by business users, or scheduled activities that need to be restricted within a production system.
The solution enables temporary users to perform emergency activities outside the parameters of their normal role, within a fully auditable environment. Users are granted access via temporary IDs or by emergency access provisioning roles set up in Greenlight’s solution.
Once the IDs are in use, management or IT security is notified and user activities, as well as changes within the system, are tracked providing management and auditors with a complete audit trail. It reduces risk by monitoring for deviations from carefully predefined access policy rules, which enables an organization to spot any misuse of temporary access privileges and immediately respond to these risks.
