Case Study: RIGA Airport

RIGA Airport is one the busiest and fastest growing international airports in the Baltics. In order to allow their people and teams to effectively connect and collaborate amidst multiplying data, they deployed Microsoft® SharePoint®, which created barriers to team productivity and general data security.

The airport's biggest challenge was missing an overview of access rights and not being able to track changes to permissions as they occurred. They were looking for a solution to eliminate data security threats and improve overall governance by preventing unwarranted access rights from increasing.

With SolarWinds® Access Rights Manager (ARM), the principal solution developed by SolarWinds, RIGA Airport was able to limit access rights to a need-to- know basis, thereby helping reduce data security risks, as well as help ensure accountability and compliance with internal policies by knowing who accessed which files.
