Fine-Grained Policy-Based Access Control: Why & How?
Mastering authorization is critical for modern organizations with multiple user constituencies, applications, and data types. Authorization has become a crucial part of security infrastructures and can no longer be considered just another feature of existing IAM solutions. Instead, authorization control infrastructures have developed their own segment in the security market.

There is a need for more than just one technology to meet different needs of the market, especially in the areas of administration and governance - both dictate the need for an authorization solution.

Furthermore, customers face challenges in several areas – the main one is having no insight into what data and functionalities users are able to access. And while there is a constant need for businesses to continuously modify, extend, and modernize their processes and business models, there is a lack of adequate and agile data access control and management functionality.

RBAC (Role Based Access Control) has proven handy for adding manageability and assurance to coarse- or medium-grained authorization but break down in the face of dynamic environments or complex access policies. Attribute-based access control (ABAC) has gained adherents but is in fact just another piece of the puzzle. Policy-based Access Control (PBAC) is an emerging model that seeks to help enterprises address the need to implement actionable access control schemes based on corporate policy and governance requirements. In general, PBAC can be considered the harmonization and standardization of the ABAC and RBAC models at an enterprise level in support of specific governance objectives.

In this webinar you will learn more about:

  • The concept of Authorization as business need and technology requirement. 
  • Why Authorization is a feature and important piece of the IAM puzzle. 
  • Why Authorization is one of the main concerns of the business owner of the information. 
  • Why your authorization solution should enable the business as well as the admins. 

In the first part of the Webinar Kuppinger Cole Lead Analyst John Tolbert will introduce the benefits and challenges of data-centric security based on RBAC (Role-based Access Control), which has often shown to be overly static and difficult to manage, complemented with ABAC (Attribute Based Access Control).

In the second part of the webinar, Gal Helemski from PlainID will talk about the concept of Authorization as a whole solution. She will describe the benefits of implementing a unified approach to address them. A single dynamic authorization architecture works across formerly separate dimensions, and can thus solve most problems through a combined RBAC and ABAC approach.
