The identity and access management consulting company PATECCO developed Role-based access control system for enterprises in the fields of healthcare, insurance and finance. As the number of their electronic systems increases along with the number of interfaces, identity management becomes a critical component in ensuring information security and access control.
PATECCO’s Role-based access control system has the capability of assigning specific rules or policies to individual users, or groups of users, that are connecting to the enterprise network. It simplifies the process in assigning user’s access based on their job function. PATECCO develops and uses role-based access control tools in conjunction with its identity management solution. In this way ensures that accounts for new employees are always created with proper access rights, so there is a control defining which users have access to resources based on the role of the user. The specific features of its RBAC system is that access rights are grouped by role name, and access to resources is restricted to users who have been authorized to assume the associated role.
PATECCO uses four major steps which are of a great importance for providing proper data security. The first phase is to ensure that new employee access and accounts are created properly when the employee is on boarded. Second phase refers to giving those access rights remaining accurate and up-to-date during each of the company’s employee’s tenures. The third, and most essential step in this process, is revocation of access rights when individual employees leave the organization. The fourth step is performing Information audits. They are required to successfully manage the information and the access of rights. Once an audit of access rights is performed, it can be compared against the baseline template for each employee role initially established. If needed, the managers and systems owners could make for verification or revocation of the rights.
PATECCO’s RBAC system is clearly defined and agile, making the addition of new applications, roles and employees as efficient as possible. One of its greatest advantages is the ability of giving the companies granular visibility, which is necessary to securely support their mobility in today's digital environment. Another benefit of RBAC refers to maximized operational performance. Thus, companies could streamline and automate many transactions and business processes and provide users with the resources to perform their jobs better, faster and with greater personal responsibility. With RBAC system in place, organizations are better positioned to meet their own statutory and regulatory requirements for privacy and confidentiality, which is crucial for health care organizations and financial institutions.
