Neo Technology announced that has successfully leveraged Neo4j to enhance the migration of compliance access rights with its new software migRaven

SAN MATEO, CA, Sep 05, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Neo Technology, creators of Neo4j, the world’s leading graph database, announced that development GmbH, an IT solution provider that focuses on access rights management, is successfully leveraging Neo4j to speed and simplify the migration of compliance access rights with its new software, migRaven. Details of the integration and the impact of graph database technology on network scanning and analyzing will be covered in a webinar taking place on Thursday, September 12 at 7 a.m. PDT/16:00 CEST.

With years of consulting experience in the file server compliance and migration field, migRaven is all too familiar with the various challenges that file server migration poses to IT administrators. Microsoft’s guidelines governing the re-allocation of user permissions and transition to new structures only promises to make the admin role all the more challenging. By bringing simplicity to otherwise complicated, elaborate rights allocation and restructuration tasks, migRaven has earned a reputation for being the ultimate tool for building, remodeling and sharing Microsoft-compliant access rights.

There is a great market need for a solution that addresses file server build up and migration in a quick and easy fashion. Until now there has been a lack of sufficient tools available for supporting IT admins in this complicated task, especially for large companies typically tasked with scanning upwards of 50,000 accounts in the space of a few minutes. migRaven’s answer to this market need is simplicity, speed and power, which according to the company, can only be achieved with the Neo4j graph database.

“I immediately understood the potential of the Neo4j and the power it lends to the field of access right management,” said Thomas Gomell, founder and CEO of development GmbH. “With Neo4j we were able to develop the concept and the first beta for migRaven in a fraction of the time we had originally expected.”

Neo4j for Access Management

migRaven was created with Neo4j as the backend to store access rights, directory and account data in order to scan, map and process access rights dependencies. Housing this data in a graph database allows these processes to be reorganized quickly and efficiently. Neo4j offers an easy way to handle complicated, elaborate rights allocation, while diminishing restructuration tasks, as the technology provides an easy overview, analysis and application to access rights management.

Existing expensive access right management solutions based on relational database engines have difficulty in processing big data and analyzing large networks. An access rights query in a relational database has to follow all the paths among the tables, as a simple match command in the graph database immediately shows the account relationships (its nodes and edges).

Saving and requesting the data in Neo4j allows migRaven to be much faster and powerful as compared to other access rights management offerings available today.
