WANdisco announces Unified Access Control for Subversion and Git

First Ever Unified Solution Provides Consistency Across Global SVN & Git Repos and Supports Compliance

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced Access Control Plus, the first unified access control solution for Subversion and Git. WANdisco Access Control Plus provides consistent authorization, authentication, access control and audit capabilities across globally distributed software development sites to fully protect valuable intellectual property.

Designed with an easy-to-use point-and-click interface, Access Control Plus can be deployed and maintained with minimal administrative overhead. Integration with LDAP and Active Directory ensures that users are automatically assigned to the Subversion and Git teams that correspond to their authentication server groups. Security administrators can delegate configuration authority to team leaders, further reducing administrative overhead.

To support compliance, Access Control Plus offers comprehensive audit capabilities that report every repository access attempt down to the file level, showing user, file accessed, Subversion or Git command used, date and time, and whether access was allowed or denied. Security administrators receive immediate alerts for any access violations. These capabilities enable key Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, PCI and other regulatory compliance requirements to be met without the burden of manual data collection that would otherwise be required during an audit.

“Secure access and seamless, unified management across their Subversion and Git repositories have been priorities for our enterprise customers,” said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco. “Companies need to ensure only authorized individuals have access to intellectual property, achieve regulatory compliance, and simplify administration so that they maximize efficiency. We address all of these goals with Access Control Plus."
