CONNECTOR CONFIGURATION

RE-POINT

There are a number of well published options for connector configuration, each with their own pro’s and con’s. Careful consideration should be given to which option suits your organisations requirements…. There is no “right or wrong” choice.

 

RapidGRC will provide you with “Best Practice” advice and guidance on the options available and configure the most suitable option for your current and planned future usage.

The above options will all technically work, it is a personal choice individual to each organisation on which will work best for them although we would recommend a “Layered” connector configuration as a preference.

 

Our  connector configuration and re-point service allows clients to utilise the expertise of RapidGRC for extensions and updates to existing landscapes or in the event that you have migrated to the cloud or any other reason that the logical SID destination changes to the connected system.
