I Dream of Full Roles Based Access Control

Imagine a world where the mundane parts of Identity and Access Management (IAM) are automated. We pass audits with ease. We don’t wake up in the middle of the night sweating about whether the right people have the right access. Our end users have the access they need and access reviews are completed on time. All while maintaining a high level of security posture for our organization.

Ok. Come back down to reality. Organizations are far too messy to be able to live in a dream world like this. The ever evolving business is constantly changing how they do things, implementing new systems all the time, doing HR re-orgs. And people change, too! We move, get promoted, transfer, or move on to greener pastures. With all of these changes, the relationship between people and the systems they have access to become nearly impossible to automate.

Roles Based Access Control (RBAC) is nothing new to the IAM world, but we have never quite been able to fully embrace it. Mostly because we have a really hard time understanding these constantly changing relationships. RBAC was meant to bring unparalleled efficiencies by automating access changes due to job changes, and reduce compliance issues by ensuring people have the exact amount of access they need.

With new analytics entering the market, it’s time that IAM folks get to share in the fun of having incredibly powerful algorithms and data visualizations at their disposable. And that’s exactly what we’ve done with Core Role Designer. Let’s figure out how to get you closer to the dream world of fully understanding the people in your organization and the things they have access to – and develop RBAC that actually works. Maybe you’ll even get a full night’s rest.
