Policy-Based Access Control (PBAC)

Determine which users/machines are allowed to access resources.

Cloudentity facilitates organizations in implementing Policy-Based Access Control (PBAC) to fortify the security surrounding their resources.

At the core of Cloudentity’s offering is its capability to define and enforce granular access policies. Organizations can write authorization policies employing the REGO language or via Cloudentity intuitive built-in visual editor, making policy formulation both flexible and user-friendly. The visual editor provides a more straightforward avenue for individuals who may not be proficient in scripting, thus democratizing the policy definition process across different skill levels within an organization.

Cloudentity’s PBAC implementation allows for dynamic access control decisions based on a myriad of attributes like user roles, current location, time of access, the resource being accessed, and much more. This dynamic nature of access control ensures a more contextual and adaptable security measure compared to traditional role-based access control (RBAC).

To enable organizations to control the whole security perimeter of their platforms, Cloudentity can enforce authorization policies at different layers. Different policies can be assigned to, for example, control access for individual users and manage interactions and data exchange between machines.
