Benefits of Role-Based Access Control Systems

Last Updated: February 20, 2014

A professionally designed and installed access control system can greatly increase the network security of your business, but did you know you can go one step further to protect your intellectual property with a role-based access control system?

What Is a Role-Based Access Control System?

A role-based access control system (sometimes referred to as RBAC) is a low-maintenance method of restricting access to authorized users in different areas of your buildings. Most companies with more than 500 employees utilize this security system to protect their employees, records, data and technological and intellectual assets.

When designing and installing a role-based access control system, you can determine and manage special roles and security levels to different employees, creating a hierarchy of controlled access and privilege.

How Does A Role-Based Access Control System Increase Security?

A role-based access control system might be the best choice for your growing business or organization. Here are just a few of the biggest benefits of these network security systems:

Increased Security

Many companies rely on security when it comes to their network and data to protect their employees, customers and industry advantage. Role-based access control systems allow for that in an efficient and reliable way. When the system is designed and implemented, access and privilege for users is determined based on their role within the company (sometimes on a “need-to-know” basis). Once these roles are set, the desired level of security can be easily maintained for hundreds and thousands of employees.

Minimal Administrative Work

When a new employee is hired or if a current worker changes departments, role-based access control eliminates the need for time-wasting paperwork and password changes to grant and remove network access. These systems can be set up to allow for an easier switch of the designated role and faster assimilation into the workflow.

Once a system is designed and personalized for a company, it requires minimal maintenance and can be scaled for growth. Changes can be made quickly and globally from the manager’s computer and implemented across systems, platforms, applications and geographic locations.

Decreased Necessary Customer Support

Using a different network security system can sometimes require a string of passwords. The more passwords assigned an employee, the more likely they are to forget them or need them reset. This can bog down your HR or IT departments when they could be focused on more important, revenue-driving projects. Role-based access control takes away that need for multiple passwords to prove privilege. Instead, it grants access based on the initial assigned role and assigned accessibility for that role.
