Secure & Govern - RBAC Fine-Grained Role Entitlements

Follow

Secure & Govern Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) now supports fine-grained role entitlements. One of the most significant benefits of fine-grained access control is that it allows for varying degrees of access. Administrators can now restrict access and delegate specific responsibilities to other users.

In cases where a user has multiple roles, an administrator should configure how RBAC and role entitlements are applied, so any conflicts between roles are addressed, and a user does not end up with more entitlements than intended. This is one way that organizations can ensure the separation of duties.

Predefined Default Roles

Egnyte Secure & Govern supports five predefined default roles: Admin Role, Basic User Role, Power User Role, Data Owner Role and Basic Viewer Role. These are the most commonly used roles in most organizations. The entitlements of these roles have been predefined and can be directly assigned to individual users. The role hierarchy and entitlements are briefly described below

  • Admin Role has full access including all the privileges and permissions for the entire system.
  • Power User Role has limited access to the issues, permissions and sensitive content views. These users can only see folders where they are folder owners in a content source.
  • Basic User Role has limited access and only has access to the issues View
  • Data Owner Role has limited access to permissions and sensitive content views. These users will only be able to see folders where assigned as Data Owner.
  • Basic Viewer Role is the most restrictive role. Users will have the ability to log into Secure & Govern and only allows users to comment on issues they are assigned

For more information on Data Owner restricted view option see Data Owner - Restricted Views in Secure & Govern.

Custom Roles 

With Custom Role, administrators can grant precise privileges based on each user's responsibilities and business needs.

Fine-Grained Role Entitlements

Administrators now have more fine-grained control over all user entitlements. The entitlements available, for each Secure & Govern product segment/view, are described below.

There is an on/off toggle switch for each product segment/view. When the toggle is turned off, the role will have no entitlements to access the product segment/view.
