Security, control & accountability of role-based access control (RBAC)

Modern infrastructure is made up of a range of technologies managed by distributed teams. Puppet Enterprise includes powerful role-based access control (RBAC) so you can give your teams the space to work freely and safely. RBAC also lets you make sure your organization is complying with its security policies and can demonstrate that compliance.
