Re: "4-Augen Prinzip" - what's that in English without using a whole sentence?

Where I work, it is commonly referred to as "2-man rule" or "4-eye principle." While "4-eyes" sounds slightly odd, we retain the direct translation as it sort of has specific references to SOX regulations.

More information with regards to SOX and data protection here and here (Chapter 3.1.2)

Many eyes see better than two, is yet another way to express it.
