Posted By : Dimpal Bhatia | 31-Jul-2019
Role-based access control management is integrated and flexible way to control whether an authenticated person has the rights to access resources through policies. The data power gateway manages access through role-based access management. Role-based access management controls the relationships between authenticated users and resources. The user logs via with the data power gateway. The user is authenticated either by the data power Gateway or by the remote authentication system. The RBAC policy determines whether to allow an authenticated user to access specific resources.
Benefits of RBAC
1) Improving operational efficiency:-Companies can downgrade the need for paper work and password changes when they hire new employees or switch the roles of existing employees by using RBAC. It lets organizations quickly add new roles, as well as implement them across different platforms, operating systems and applications. It also downgrades the error rate when user permissions are being allocatedted. Companies can easily integrate third-party users into their networks by giving them certain roles.
2) Enhancing Compliance:- Every organization must have set of rules with local, state and federal regulations. Companies mostly give preference to implement RBAC systems to fulfill the requirements for confidentiality and privacy because IT departments and executives can more effectively manage how the data is being used and accessed. This is particularly important for healthcare companies and financial institutions that manage sensitive data.
3) Giving administrators increased visibility:- RBAC gives more adaptability to network administrators by confirming that authorized users on the system are only given rights to what they need to do their jobs
4) Reducing costs:- Companies may conserve or more cost-effectively use resources by not allowing user access to certain processes and applications, such as network bandwidth, memory, and storage.
5) Decreasing risk of breaches and data leakage:- It reduces the potential for data breaches or data leakage because RBAC means restricting access to sensitive information
