For its projects, Net Studio includes software from many brands such as IBM, Sailpoint, Okta, Microfocus, OneIdentity. However, each of these has its own interfaces, but there are no brands that produce a universal interface for the different facets of the digital identity. Net Studio has successfully created one. The company’s main SW tool, EasyRequest, offers a simpler interface than those included in the box from well-known software vendors. “EasyRequest was born to enable business users to easily understand and manage IT requests without the support of IT or helpdesk,” says Luca Bendinelli, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Net Studio. EasyRequest is based on the "Catalog" principle. Once the Catalogue is completed, it enables business users to easily understand the current access rights of their reports, whether it is appropriate to approve new access requests (what-if), or if the rights they are granting are correct for the job.
Bendinell illustrates the instance of SIA Spa, the European leader in the field of technological infrastructures for payments. The client wanted to maintain compliance standards and adopted an identity governance system to allow its managers the responsibility of assigning access to data to the people reporting to them.
“EasyRequest was born to enable business users to easily understand and manage IT requests without the support of IT or helpdesk.”
Net Studio is soon going to uplevel EasyRequest with new features such as revealing the behaviour of users to the business owner, reporting any access risks due to the Segregation of Duties between all applications (only non-ERP), and due to local regulations such as the GDPR, ISO 27001 and others. “The final purpose is to enrich EasyRequest with several other features that can enable business users to get a complete and easy-to-understand landscape in regards of who-can-do-what,” says Bendinelli.
Over the last decade, Net Studio has been growing its revenue by 10-15 per cent yearly, gaining credibility in the large Enterprise market more than any other competitor in Italy—all thanks to EasyRequest. "The solution is evolving into a Digital Identity Universal Dashboard, and we are ready to deliver it over the European and U.S. markets soon," says Bendinelli.
