Overview of RBAC

With the growing security risks and rapid cloud adaptation, many enterprises have adopted a zero-trust strategy. Zero Trust is a security concept that operates on the ‘Never trust, always verify’ principle. It means that all users, systems, and processes could be compromised. And these compromises pose security risks. To combat these risks, organizations create strict access controls, implement risk-based multi-factor authentication, and enhance (?) identity protection. 

Zero Trust begins by implementing an identity and access model (IAM) like role-based access control (RBAC). RBAC allows organizations to manage access to appropriate applications and data – especially for large enterprises. RBAC uses the principle of least privilege access control (a Zero Trust principle) which reduces security risks, lowers operational costs, and protects sensitive data. 

RBAC in Secberus 

Secberus’ role-based access control (RBAC) lets you control access based on roles in the organization’s account. Secberus account owners can assign roles directly granting users the permission to view and contribute the information needed to do their jobs based on predefined roles. There are four roles available: 

  • Account Owner: full access, unrestricted access to Secberus and access to all organizations
  • Administrator: full access to all projects within the organization
  • Contributor: can edit and create policies within the organization
  • Viewer: can view certain screens within the organization

With Secberus’ role-based access control (RBAC), the account owner can assign a role to the end-user for each organization. Secberus role-based access control (RBAC) enables our customers to ensure that every role at their organization has the correct level of permissions.

What’s next?

This is just the beginning of the identity and access model (IAM) at Secberus. Role-based access control simplifies the ability to express permissions based on organizational hierarchies. In addition to Role-based access control (RBAC), we’ll be shipping Attribute-based access control (ABAC) to support you with protecting your cloud environment efficiently and securely.
