In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

-Our Policy-Based Access Control (PBAC) is a key differentiator, as other solutions rely on older mechanisms like Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC). Our graph database-based policy engine takes the best of both of these methodologies, and creates significant efficiencies, and usability, allowing the business side of an enterprise to leverage our tool, something almost unheard of until today.

-Our flexible model is unique in that it allows integrations to just about any enterprise application, whether it's home built, or commonly used.

-Our solution is built on a graph database, giving it unprecedented analytical abilities and scalability, something no competitor can offer. This is also incredibly helpful for compliance and auditing, to be able to see detailed reports on who has access to what, across the enterprise.

Brief Overview

PlainID’s Policy Manager focuses on the last mile of the Identity and Access Management Lifecycle, allowing an enterprise to create access control policies that work in runtime, keeping the right level of access when, how and where it is needed. This product is in the area of “Authorization” and dictates what the user is allowed or restricted from doing. Existing IAM solutions lack most elements of a complete Authorization solution, such as Dynamic, Fine Grained, Policy-Based Access Control. Also, every existing IAM solution is used only by the IT department, but the PlainID solution is logical and easy enough for a business/product owner to use, thus enabling the business side to be able to manage who should have access to what. The PlainID Policy Manager distills thousands of roles into just a few logical policies that recreate each scenario,and allow the right access in real-time.
