Organizations are faced with two pitfalls when it comes to assigning and revoking access privileges. To assign privileges, they often create a copy of a colleague’s account, also known as ‘template user’. This creates the risk that new employees are provided with unwarranted access to business applications and systems. Added to which, organizations do not pay sufficient attention to revoking privileges when they create copies of existing user accounts. After all, their most important consideration is enabling new employees to do their job rather than checking for excess access privileges. Dictated by standards, IT auditors and unnecessary licensing costs for suites including Microsoft Visio, Projects and Adobe CS, organizations have come to acknowledge the importance of a responsible handling of authorizations. RBAC may just be the solution for them.

In this white paper we will explain the nature of Role Based Access Control, how it can be optimally implemented across the organization and what approach Tools4ever uses to this end..
