What is role-based access control (RBAC) for modern IT?

Role-based access control, or RBAC, is an approach to restricting system access only to authorized users. RBAC allows you to assign owners and lock down access where appropriate. If you are managing many unique organizations or subsidiaries internally or for your managed clients, modern administration tools enable you to easily move between different instances to assign various levels of roles and privileges.

While RBAC solves the administration of security in large organizations with many users and permissions, this approach introduces challenges in managing many endpoints and creates security gaps due to changing security threats and risks.

Global Zone Management solves these challenges with modern RBAC that is easily customizable to any organizational structure. Logically segment your endpoints into zones to match how your organization operates - whether by hierarchy, geography, or business structure. Then, assign access based on their corresponding level of authority or responsibility. This solution allows organizations to get as broad or granular as needed.

Levels of Access by Role

Leverage 5 different roles for immense flexibility

Global Administrator Role

The Global Administrator has complete control of the organization's endpoint environment. They can view and manage access for all zones and take action on any endpoint within any zone. The Global Administrator can set roles and permissions by either adding a user to the console and granting them access to an established zone or by creating a zone and adding users.

We have yet to find a piece of software that Automox has been unable to patch.

Zone Administrator Role

Zone Administrators have access to assigned zones granted by the Global Administrator. They can have a single or multiple zone view, allowing them to stay focused on their assigned zones instead of sifting through endpoints that are not relevant to them. Zone Administrators can set access and manage devices and patching operations within their assigned zones.

We can now automatically patch any device on any operating system, from any location.

Patch Administrator Role

Patch Administrators have the ability to control endpoints, groups, and policies, with read-only access to other areas of the Automox platform. Users assigned with this role type are ideal for managing specific groups of devices or just patching operations, without having the ability to manage users or settings.

Patching is a thankless, redundant job that should be automated, which is why we chose Automox.

Billing Administrator Role

Billing Administrators only have the ability to change billing settings within their assigned zone(s). These users are responsible for adding a corporate credit card or generating an invoice. Billing Administrator users have read-only access to other zones and cannot change patching and policy settings.

Having all my security status data centralized in one place makes my life a whole lot less stressful.

Read-Only Access

Users assigned with Read-Only access can only see what has been configured in the zones for which they have access. They do not have the ability to edit any settings or configurations. Read-Only access is ideal for users who only need to generate reports or confirm patching status.

It just works. The client is easy to deploy and it is easy and intuitive to configure the policies.
