Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

Improve the security of data protection activities with NAKIVO Backup & Replication by limiting backup and recovery operations available to users and restricting unauthorized access. Administrators can use the Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) feature to assign unique roles and grant specific permissions to users.

  • Recovery Operator: schedule and manage recoveries
  • View Only: gain complete oversight over jobs and tasks without rights to edit or create jobs

Seamless Role Administration

Edit, clone or delete the previously created custom roles and permissions to stay up to date with your business needs. Apply immediate changes to multiple users in bulk or modify individual roles.

Custom Settings

Create new roles by customizing permissions and access levels to meet your data protection administration needs. This flexibility in designing new roles from scratch offers greater control over your backup and recovery activities.

Active Directory Integration

Synchronize NAKIVO Backup & Replication with Active Directory to authenticate users automatically. Keep user identities consistent across your entire infrastructure by efficiently assigning, editing, and deleting roles when needed.

DRaaS and BaaS Management

With multi-tenant deployments of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, managed Service Providers (MSPs) can offer clients backup as a service (BaaS) and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). As “master tenants”, MSPs can assign roles to tenants (their clients) and grant them permissions to perform backup and recovery tasks within their isolated environments. Tenants can then use the Self-Service Portal to carry out their data protection activities. At the same time, MSPs retain full visibility of the entire multi-tenant environment and monitor all processes from a unified dashboard.
