What is Cloud-Based Access Control?

Verkada’s cloud-based access control is a cutting-edge security solution that revolutionizes how you manage access to your premises. Cloud-based access control is a system that makes it possible for users to control and enter a building using cloud-connected devices and applications.

In other words, facility managers are able to manage credentials (e.g., who has access to what areas of the building) on web browser or a web-based application. This makes it easy for managers to control access to a building.

Furthermore, individuals can gain access to a building with a keycard or smartphone app if they have the proper credentials. If they do not have the appropriate credentials or their identity is not recognized, then they will not gain access to the building.

What is Role-based Access Control?

Role-based access control (RBAC) is rapidly becoming the most prevalent form of access control. Instead of assigning permissions to individual users, as with a MAC system, an RBAC system assigns permissions to a particular job title. The process of adding or removing users is streamlined

You wouldn’t have to make 25 separate security profiles in the system if, say, you have 20 salespeople, 2 managers, and 3 accountants. You would only need to develop three, one for each distinct job title. Just update an employee’s credentials to reflect their new position when they’re promoted. Learn more about Verkada’s RBAC system below.
