Protect Your Users and Data in Workday

Obsidian gives security teams the visibility, monitoring, and intelligence they need to ensure that the right people have the right level of access to Workday, and they are doing the right things. Obsidian offers a simple yet comprehensive solution to secure Workday environments.  At the same time, Obsidian also analyzes the HCM data in Workday, such as employee status, start and end dates, and team changes in the context of other activities. Protect your most critical assets against access misuse, privilege sprawl, and misconfigurations.  Start in minutes with API-based connectivity and get instant visibility.

  • Privilege monitoring

  • Threat detection

  • Posture management

Visibility of Access and Activity

Give security teams unified view of activity across Workday and other SaaS applications to monitor and investigate suspicious behavior, and respond to incidents without getting in the way of regular SaaS users and admins. Security teams are not able to Workday because they don’t have access to the live environment. Fix this by arming security with the data they need.

High Risk Employee Activity

Employees with upcoming termination dates can pose a higher risk for IP theft. Get visibility into users with upcoming termination dates. Obsidian lets you quickly view recent activity of these users to find any access activity of concern.

Lingering Access

Employees who have left the company may still have lingering access to SaaS applications. This is a serious security issue. Get alerts and analytics around former employees and contractors who have lingering accounts in SaaS applications and/or have accessed the apps after they are no longer with the company.

Data Protection

Identify risks associated with data access in Workday. Obsidian generates alerts when a user has an unusually high volume of downloads, or reveals other signs of suspicious data access activity. Who is accessing data or downloading reports that they should not?

Financial and Accounting Data

Financial and accounting data have a higher level of scrutiny given the impact of a data exposure or breach. Obsidian’s analytics and alerts cover oversharing and suspicious activity around data access, like bank account details being changed from unfamiliar locations.

Weak Authentication Detection

Use Obsidian’s alerts and analytics around authentication and access to identify weak or unwanted security practices; e.g., users accessing Workday via basic authentication. Obsidian provides visibility into accounts frequently targeted by brute force attacks that are at a high risk for takeover access.

Privilege Monitoring

Admin sprawl is rampant. Who has privileged access? Does an employee have admin access that they should not have? Get an inventory of user access and privileges. Monitor for privilege elevation and admin sprawl. Obsidian maps privileged roles to show who has privileges.
