Doing away with Access Control Bottlenecks:
Securing identities across an enterprise is incomplete unless there are right access controls and at times it leads to a plethora of security concerns. Identity theft, sensitive information infringement, unauthorized information breaches and pretty other cybercrime incidents are few of them. Combating these critical issues is possible with an IAM offering Role Management capabilities that also offers the right governance policies and protect sensitive data.
What is Role Management?
Role Management doesn’t involve a set of credentials assigned to a single employee for the long term, rather than the job role which can be extended to more than one employee-credential and can be revoked at any given point of time. This is the most effective method for privilege management.
Who needs Role-based Access Management?
Roles are assigned to various applications, users, or services. For example, allowing access to third-party audit teams to access your account for carrying out carry out audit on your enterprise resources. Moreover, when employees join, change department, get transferred, promoted, or take exit – the chances of access or resource misuse can be eliminated through proper role-based access management by an efficient IAM. Roles can be created, assigned, managed, and deleted through the IAM specialist in your enterprise IT ecosystem.
The major set of activities carried out in developing roles and maintaining them in the long run are as follows:
- Assigning and Defining New Roles with respective rules
- Perform Security Entitlement updating and review periodically
- Changing the rules for Role Definition and Assignment
- Eliminating Out-dated Roles
- Updating and Review the List of Users per Role
- Role development and maintenance through Analysis of Existing users, Security Entitlements, and Identity Attributes data
The existing entitlements and identity attributes are analysed through entitlement analytics or role mining.
How does Role Management work?
For developing a role-based access management system integrating analytics capabilities is an integral part. Groups with same-identity-attribute or same-entitlement users are taken into consideration for developing a role model. When the role model is developed, IAM enforces a technology for periodic comparison of real-time user rights to the ones predicted through the role-model, less accepted exceptions.
Deviations are corrected automatically or forwarded to authorized professionals for approval/denial:
- Converting them to approved exceptions
- Correct them on the target system
- Preventing user access right requests that violate the model
Types of Role-based access management practices:
At times the situation demands deleting or modifying roles and you can alter the roles through:
- Change the user who can access the role
- Modifying associated policies for a specific role
- Alter the maximum duration of sessions for roles
- Delete roles which are out of use
