As with the federal government, there are several data access control challenges unique to the public sector. From education to law enforcement, internal revenue, and government institutes, agencies require complete control over who, when and how their most sensitive data is accessed.
In the wake of high-profile security breaches such as Wikileaks and the NSA, agencies around the globe require fine-grained Attribute Based Access Control (or ABAC), that allow agencies to define robust policies about a user’s access rights including (but not limited to) who a user is, what his/her role is within a given entity, when he/she should be granted access, where, and at what time.
For example, imagine this scenario:
Axiomatics can help solve this with Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC). Axiomatics works around the globe with the public sector, its contractors, and security integrators to deploy ABAC allowing agencies to maintain complete control over who, when and how their most sensitive data is accessed, while providing a single point of control for data access—as regulations change, system integrators can adjust policies once, and have them apply agency-wide.
