RBAC (Role-Based Access Control)

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is a cornerstone of modern access management, ensuring that users have the exact permissions they needβ€”no more, no less. Escape's RBAC features allow organizations to meticulously define roles and fine-grained permissions, ensuring robust security, streamlined operations, and maximized productivity.

Escape's RBAC is accessible under the "Organization" Settings, and at the "Application" settings level.

Core Roles​

Escape defines roles via a mapping between features and CRUD permissions for each features. The following are the core features that can be configured in Escape:

  • Applications: Applications created from discovered endpoints in the inventory, with their scan configurations and scan results.
  • Inventory: The Escape inventory, built from the discovered endpoints via integrations, and crawling.
  • Integrations: All the integrations that are configured in Escape to discover and enrich your organizational context.
  • Reporting: Your organizational dashboard to visualize the data from the inventory and the applications, your progress and security posture.
  • Notifications: Your configured notification workflows, and the history of the triggered notificat.

Fine-Grained Application Permissions​

Beyond the core roles, Escape provides the flexibility to define permissions at the granular application level. This ensures that users or business units can be restricted or permitted to specific applications, aligning with their job responsibilities and the principle of least privilege.

You can simply configure the permissions for each application by selecting the role for each application.
