Why NextLabs Application Enforcers?

NextLabs’ Application Enforcers augment an application’s underlying security model, providing an extra layer of controls for organizations with extensive security and compliance requirements, without the need for custom coding. 

  • Externalized Authorization: Modify authorization policies without having to make any code changes to the application itself. 
  • Enforce Least Privilege Access: Uses ABAC to enforce the principle of least privilege, ensuring apps and data are accessed only by authorized entities.
  • Leverage Data Classification: Automatically identifies sensitive data types based on the app’s underlying data model, organizes data into relevant categories.
  • Collects Access Activity Across Apps: Discerns and collects relevant data to facilitate centralized correlation & detection of anomalous activity.
  • Native Application Integration: Understands identity system, object & security model of apps, for easy deployment & seamless user experience 


DAE provides unmatched flexibility and security in defining and enforcing data access controls

Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC)

Application Enforcers’ ABAC policies can control access to data, business transactions, and batch processes based on policies that use attributes of the data being accessed, the context of the request and the user’s identity. Application Enforcers dynamically apply relevant policies to access requests and are therefore able to enforce fine-grained access control across a diverse range of business functions that the user can execute in accordance with the changes in data or user attributes.

Centralized Policy Management

Authorization policies stored in the central Control Center Policy Server can be managed directly by data or compliance owners with CloudAz’s Policy Studio that provides full policy lifecycle management and workflow. CloudAz allows you to centrally manage and review authorization policies across your applications and services. For example, a policy that determines what accounts a user can view within an application can also determine that the user can only access documents related to those accounts.

Dynamic Runtime Policy Enforcement

CloudAz’s Policy Engine dynamically evaluates policies using real-time values of the attributes specified in the policies to determine if the user is authorized to perform the business transaction or has access to the data at runtime. Administrators no longer need to maintain and keep track of role, permission, and data ownership assignments as users move between departments, territories, locations; when accounts, campaigns, or support cases are modified; or as other conditions and attributes change.

Row Level Data Filtering

Application Enforcers ensure that users can only view accounts, opportunities, leads, contacts, campaigns, support cases, or other entities they have been granted access to. Authorization can be determined based on the industry, location, department, position, project assignment or any other attribute of the user which can then be compared against the attributes of each entity and record such as the account industry, region, and revenue, support case severity, sensitivity, and product assignment, or any other information about the record.

Policy Inheritance and Enforcement Across Related Entities

Application Enforcers provide the capability to enforce policies across related entities using inheritance. For example, an account executive can only access opportunities and leads for the accounts that they have been authorized to view.

Safeguard Business Transactions

Users can be given the permission to view a set of accounts and other entities while being authorized to edit, create, and delete a subset of these records, based on policies. An account executive may be given the permission to view all accounts in North America, while only allowed to create, edit, and delete accounts that belong to the West Coast region and Financial Services industry.

Field Level Data Redaction & Masking

Authorization Policies can be defined to redact and mask sensitive fields on a row by row basis. For example, an account executive can only see the social security number and date of birth for contacts that they created.

Preventative Runtime SoD Enforcement

Application Enforcers can prevent Segregation of Duties (SoD) and other compliance violations from happening as policies are dynamically evaluated to prevent conflicting activities and unauthorized actions at runtime. For example, to remove risk of fraud where users could create fictitious vendors, users should be prevented from submitting purchase orders for any vendor that they themselves created.

Centralized Audit & Monitoring

Policy compliance and end user activity are collected in a central audit server for reporting by the Reporter application - a graphical analysis, charting, and reporting application. Application Enforcers track and store user activity and data access across all supported applications and services in a central audit server. Insight into user behavior and access patterns is provided through dashboards, reports and automated monitoring facilities.
