- Security best practices begin with employing least privilege. Least privilege is defined as giving users access to only the information and resources needed to execute a particular task. To employ least privilege, organizations are turning to ABAC.
ABAC, also known as policy-based access controls, grants access to users through the use of policies that are automatically enforced using context-aware attributes (e.g., location, time range, days, security clearance level, IP address, max dollar amount allowed to be entered, even require a manager review, etc.) ABAC functions as a preventative control at the business process, transaction, and master data level.
The Appsian Security Platform makes it easy to employ ABAC, while continuing to leverage the Role-Based Controls that are already defined and in-use across the organization.
