RBAC (Role-Based Access Control in SailPoint)
Identity and Access Management (IAM), is now a crucial component of any organization’s security policies. IAM can help reduce your organization’s vulnerability and reduce risk by ensuring that only the appropriate personnel have access to specific systems and data. Role-Based Access Control is a strategy that many IAM systems use to determine who can access which IT roles, such as applications, based upon the organization’s structure or the roles of users.

What is RBAC in SailPoint and how does it work? How does it work?
SailPoint’s Role-Based Access Control model offers a Role Based mechanism. SailPoint entitlement is not a standalone function in any organization. Anyone who joins an organisation will be assigned a job role within that organization. SailPoint architecture provides Role-Based modeling in two levels.
Roles in Business
Mapped IT Roles: Rights or Permissions
SailPoint uses entitlements or permissions as the basis for role modeling. When entitlements are linked and encapsulated inside a role model, we logically organize them into role models.
Business roles are general roles that users can join, such Security Analyst or Manager. We will show you how IT roles are required to perform their jobs within each of these roles. If a Manager joins an organisation, he must have access to the following applications: app1, app5, app7 and app8. If the manager is assigned a job, the access will be automatically encapsulated. When a new member joins an organisation, they are assigned a business role and any access that is encapsulated will be automatically assigned to them.
These access privileges are granted to the user automatically. Each application allows a business to indicate their entitlement. If they are granted access to read access or execution access, then it automatically goes in birthright positioning. All of the encapsulating access is automatically provisioned when you give a specific person a business position. This indicates that businesses have centralized entitlements in a specific job in any organization. It also means that they prefer one to many mappings and are more concerned about how access is managed. Control Association is used for mapping IT roles within business roles.
Control Association: Any IT roles mapped will be assigned automatically when we map business roles in a permissible or required manner. Any position that a user has allowed will be available to them.
RBAC (Role-Based Access Control), allows users to restrict access and enforce restrictions by assigning permissions. Permissions are determined based on the access required for each job. This means that different employees may have different levels of access depending on their job roles and tasks.
Organizational Benefits of RBAC
RBAC offers many benefits to organizations:
Centralized access: Any company can use RBAC for central access. Logging in will allow you to see the roles that your end users have been given. You can also see which roles have been assigned to which business roles and which IT jobs were detected. This is because IT roles can be linked to business profiles.
Role information: You can open identity cubes to gain 360-degree access. This allows you to see the job description and what can be done in your company.
Compliance information: This information refers how closely your identification conforms to the enterprise’s standards. SailPoint allows you to manage access and set policies for your organization. SailPoint allows you to manage access and define policies.
