GLOSSARY TERM

Policy Engine

A policy engine is a software representation of business rules that can be established and managed by the IT team running an organization’s systems. These rules can apply, for instance, to whether and how employees can access certain applications—the rules programmed in the Policy Engine might dictate that Authorization for access to an application must be based on attributes including device type, user, group, role, target resource, IP address, location, time, etc.

Zentry Security provides flexible and fine-grained access control to applications and resources on a per-request basis via its intelligent policy engine.
