Rule Based Access Control (RBAC) – what is it?

Rule Based Access Control (RBAC) allows system owners to personalise the type of access a user has based on their role within an organisation.

Users can be grouped into roles based on their responsibilities within an organisation as this generally determines their system access needs. Access is then granted to each user based on the access requirements established for each role. If strict access requirements are set out for each role, access management will be easy to manage.
