Courion, the access risk management solutions provider, is providing financial services company Raymond James Investment Services (RJIS) with the Courion Access Assurance Suite solution to manage user access to key investment applications.

“A large proportion of our helpdesk hours were historically tied up with manually providing, rescinding and refreshing logins to the systems that hold our sensitive data,” said David Strydom, manager of IT operations and infrastructure at RJIS. “Aside from the improved productivity that comes from automating the process – and the ability it gives our IT support staff to concentrate their efforts on setups and critical software updates rather than password resets – Courion’s solution removes much of the chance for human error that existed and improves our ability to manage risk and secure passwords according to policy.”
