Access Control Automation in Workiva

Assure Works With WDesk

Workiva delivers Wdesk, an intuitive cloud platform modernizing how people work within thousands of organizations, including over 70 percent of the 500 largest U.S. corporations by total revenue. Wdesk is built upon a data management engine, offering controlled collaboration, data integration, granular permissions, and a full audit trail. Wdesk helps mitigate risk, improves productivity, and gives users confidence in their data-driven decisions.

Fastpath Assure® and Wdesk provide an integrated controls management, monitoring, and testing solution. With this connected solution, access control monitoring and process controls are aligned to enable a more efficient and streamlined process. The solution enables you to easily map access control and segregation of duties (SoD) information to your risk control matrix (RCM) and control process for a comprehensive SOX and controls management solution.

Use Fastpath Assure to search for and identify security conflicts within enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and other operational systems. The evidence automatically integrates into Wdesk for SOX testing purposes—streamlining reporting and testing in a single connected environment. You get better alignment of control monitoring and a more efficient testing process.
