When designing a commercial enterprise security system, including a large office complex or a small office network, Snowflake RBAC software offers several advantages. It is based on a technology that permits authorized users to access restricted information by posing a need, rather than simply requesting access. This system first presented the need for access control with a straightforward model – the user requests an entry and, if denied, must provide a reason. If the user cannot present a valid reason, he cannot gain access to the information. This is a simple model that is easily implemented and can be adapted for many other purposes.
Popular Security System
The simplicity of this design is the primary reason that SBAC is such a popular security system. When designing this control, the focus should be on the user who is trying to gain access to the information. This is much different from a security system that uses an access control list (ACL). With an ACL, the user is simply authorized to enter a specific area of a network. This type of access control is convenient when used in smaller networks where only one user can access a particular secured area.
Self-Service Access Control
Another advantage of Snowflake is that it allows for “self-service” access control, which means that each user has only the authority to access information that they already know about. This is unlike most other types of access control solutions, where the user is requesting information that is not particularly relevant to them. With the Snowflake system, users can access the information themselves, without having to ask for permission. This is also convenient for information that is not sensitive.
Self-service access control is also useful because it is simple to use and does not require highly trained personnel’s knowledge and experience. With the typical security ACL, information that is not relevant to the user is placed in a field, making it necessary for the user to ask for authorization before they can gain access to any of the information. However, with the Snowflake system, which can be accessed by any user, regardless of their access authorization level, all that the user needs to do is enter a secured area, and the appropriate information will be displayed.
Unlike most other types of access control solutions, a Snowflake system is not bound by the restrictions of specific locations or times of the day. Any user can access the secure area at any time, regardless of whether they are at home or on the road. They can even access secured areas while at work, since the system can be programmed to display information in the employee’s in-box whenever it is available. These features make the Snowflake system extremely versatile.
A Snowflake system can make the operation of many different computer applications easier, because it streamlines access control. With many different types of security systems, certain problems can arise if multiple users are trying to gain access to a particular part of a network. With a Snowflake system, however, all computers that are on the same network will have access to the secure area. This makes it far easier for even the busiest of computer users to access the information they need without waiting on hold on a call center to receive authorization.
Added Layer of Authentication
The Snowflake systems also use the latest in computer security technology to provide users with the added layer of authentication. Using biometrics, or personal fingerprints, rather than passwords, a user is provided with the added assurance that only they will have access to the information they are trying to access. While passwords provide an easy way to restrict access to a network to unauthorized users, biometrics provides additional security. In fact, biometrics are often used to access secure areas at companies requiring a high level of security to meet their legal obligations. As a computer network becomes more complex, businesses must consider and implement new ways to control access to secured areas. Snowflake system provides a flexible and convenient solution to this. Whether your business requires a basic network security level or you’re implementing greater security measures, Snowflake can help. With their unique multi-layered security features and their intuitive operation, Snowflake offers you the ideal level of access control.
