Classic authorization solutions rely on repositories of predefined groups and roles that link between users and resources. This makes access decisions static and unchangeable in real time. PlainID makes authorization smarter and more secure. The access decision is determined dynamically to meet true business needs, provided in real-time based on time, place, device, SOC alerts and other environmental characteristics and events that influence the decision at the time access is requested.
Policy-based access control transforms higher order policies into contextual fine-grained control, helping to better react to security threats or events, such as a breach, by adjusting the relevant data policies or authorization criteria for the application accordingly. In addition, many third-party and homegrown applications require more authorization than traditional authentication tokens, such as OAUTH, can provide. With PlainID, developers can easily set the applications to the desired level of authorization, freeing time to focus on the user experience and functionality of the app.
PlainID features a unique wizard-driven interface that enables policy composition in three steps by simply dragging and dropping objects. No code or technical experience is necessary.
For example, you can allow a regional sales team access to certain accounts data, but restrict it only according to their region and only from their office during specified times. In the event of a breach, all or some of the access can be set to be blocked. The access decision is not premeditated but rather determined in real time.
