Role-based access control models allow people to access only certain parts of the network based on their role within your organisation. This model has become one of the most advanced and effective forms of access control in the software development business of today.
Under this model, employees can only access the information they need to do their jobs, while sensitive information is out of reach. This access is based on several factors, including job competency, authorisation, and responsibility. You can see this control model at work when, for example, you want to limit access to computer resources and only allow some employees to view, create, or modify a file.
As a result, employees on a lower level of business operation will be denied access to sensitive information or the authorisation to perform high-level tasks.
With RBAC, you will improve the efficiency of your operation, which means there will be less paperwork when an employee switches positions. Also, you can more easily integrate third-party users into your network by assigning them predefined roles. That way, third-party associates won’t have access to financial and healthcare records or any other sensitive data.
Moreover, your IT administrators will gain a clearer insight into tasks performed by each employee and what is currently happening on the project. With controlled access, the risk of data leakage is decreased and a more cost-effective policy of using resources such as bandwidth, storage, and memory is implemented.
