Role-based Access Control (RBAC) with Cohesity DataProtect 4.0

By Yusuf Asgerally • April 25, 2017

When opening up your valuable corporate data for access by your user community, you also need a simple way to manage that access. Scaling this up to an enterprise environment with strict compliance rules, you need really powerful control functionality.

With Cohesity DataProtect 4.0 we give you just that. Our newly enhanced Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) functionality provides administrators:

  • Centralized user management.
  • The ability to map users to Cohesity Roles and provide segregation of duty within our UI.
  • Create custom roles to fit your organization’s needs.
  • The ability to restrict a user’s’ access to a set of objects like: Virtual Machines, Physical Servers or Storage arrays.

Not only is this goodness applied to local Cohesity users but we also let you map your AD users and groups to Cohesity roles and enable them to log into the Cohesity application using their AD credentials using Single Sign-on.

Our goal was to provide a set of powerful access controls without compromising our commitment to a simple user experience.
