As the leading SaaS solution for financial and human capital management, Workday holds highly sensitive corporate data. This includes employee details, financial accounting, payroll, contracts, vendor relationships, and more. Protecting this data is a top business priority, yet in most organizations the security teams often do not have the access needed for security monitoring, threat detection, incident response and remediation. Obsidian arms security teams with the data they need to ensure that the right employees have the right access privileges to Workday and they are doing the right things with that access.
