The last time companies Statute and give special attention to creating a specific and strict security access control and management of network devices and access to internal corporate network. It is known that very often do not apply basic safety procedures and practices, such as control access to resources of a company, which raises the entire corporate infrastructure in immediate danger, with unknown short and long term consequences in terms of data protection and vital information.

For this reason the Authority shall ensure confidentiality of Communications (ADAE ) has issued various regulations regarding network security and privacy of electronic communicationsThese Regulations explicitly and clearly on issues of safe access to data communication, roles and responsibilities of personnel.

For example, ACS offers the possibility to impose strict rules such as minimum length of characters, an uppercase and lowercase alphabetic characters and non-alphanumeric characters. Check that the password is different from previous “n” versions and requires a change after “n” days. Finally, it is possible to reduce the incorrect password entry attempts. The ACS solution addresses the need differentiated access according to user role. Also can pronounce the access control devices of the company, network access either by local or wireless remote corporate network access. The compliance requires detailed reports on :

 • Who, when and how connected
