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.
