Managing user roles
User roles are essential for managing access and permissions in the Sectona PAM platform. When a user is assigned a particular user role, a set of permissions that come with the role are allocated to that user, enabling the user to perform his role effectively. For example, consider a large IT environment. It will have a wider, more complex network, spanning multiple physical locations and IP address segments. One or two global administrators will create user accounts, maintain the system, and generate high-level executive reports on all company assets. They create instances for different business groups of the company. They assign security managers and administrators to manage specific business groups' assets, accounts, and users. Global Administrators also create various account groups. Some will be focused on small subsets of assets. Different users in the system will have varied roles to play. Auditors may require only view access to the configuration and session logs-related tasks. Administrators may be assigned certain target assets managed by offshore teams.
