What is Just in Time Access?

Just-In-Time (JIT) access refers to an access control method where user permissions are granted only at the exact time they are needed. This strategy minimizes the risk of unauthorized access or insider threats, as users do not have permanent access rights. It's widely utilized in cloud computing and data security environments.

Benefits of Just in Time Access to


1. Enhanced Least Privilege Access: Integrating just in time access with RingCentral enables organizations to implement least privilege access effectively. It restricts unauthorized access to sensitive data by only granting the necessary access rights to individuals when needed, enhancing overall security.

2. Reduction in Insider Threats: Using just in time privilege escalation in RingCentral significantly reduces the risk of insider threats. It prevents users from gaining unnecessary or excessive privilege that could be potentially misused, protecting the organization's proprietary and confidential information.

3. Improved Operational Efficiency: Just in time access enhances operational efficiency by eliminating unnecessary permission-related bottlenecks. Users get the required access automatically and instantly in RingCentral, eliminating the delays of waiting for manual permission granting.

4. Easier Compliance Auditing: With just in time privilege escalation, it becomes easier for organizations using RingCentral to track and monitor the access history of users. This process simplifies auditing for compliance adherence as it provides a clear trail of who accessed what, when, and why, ensuring transparency and accountability.

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to


1. Remote Working: Employees working remotely might require Just within time access to RingCentral to instantly join or host meetings, manage calls or access vital work documents stored in this unified communications platform.

2. Tech Support: IT staff might require just in time access to troubleshoot any issues employees are experiencing with communications or to integrate new tools and features to the RingCentral system.

3. Temporary Staff: Organizations using temporary or contract-based staff might grant just in time access for the duration of the person's contract, allowing them to fully participate in communication and collaboration, while also having the ability to revoke access at the end of the contract.

How to Implement Just in Time Access to


Entitle Just In Time Access - diagram- How to Implement Just in Time Access to

1. Planning.

  • Assessment
    Begin by identifying who necessitates access in RingCentral, what resources they require, and the justification. Catalog existing access rights and evaluate if they can be downsized or nullified. An entitlement discovery application may prove helpful for superior visibility.
  • Policy creation
    Formulate explicit policies for both allocation and revocation of access. Develop policies that clearly state who is permitted to request for access, under which conditions, and for what duration. Set time-sensitive parameters, particularly for roles with privileged access.
  • Source of truth
    Integrate your JIT access system with an Identity Provider like Okta, Google Workspace, Azure AD, or OneLogin. This will serve as the authoritative source for identities. Managing individual identities instead of shared accounts will ensure better control over authorizations and enhance audit accuracy.

2. Execution.

  • Self-serve access requests
    Facilitate the system by allowing users to request access via the system, not personally. Increase system acceptance by incorporating it with IM platforms such as Slack or MS Teams. Verify request details like requester's identity, required service/role/resource, duration, and motive.
  • Approval process
    JIT access offers businesses a chance to delegate approvals to employees with the right business context. Resource owners and business department managers are generally more equipped than IT helpdesks for making approval decisions. Utilize communication platforms for swift responses.
  • Conditional approval workflows
    Introduce predefined policies into workflows that predetermine access permissions. Chain them into workflows that delineate permission to what and under what stipulations.
  • Integrations
    Contemplate integrating JITA with other IT and security systems for greater flexibility, like with IT ticketing systems and data classification systems.
  • Automated provisioning and deprovisioning
    Gain a proficient understanding of RingCentral to facilitate efficient automated provisioning and deprovisioning within the service. Integrating this with the presence of least privilege access principle (POLP) is crucial for JIT Access.
  • Access methods
    For RingCentral JIT Access, APIs are favoured for their flexibility and real-time capabilities. A combination might be needed- like using SAML for authentication, SCIM for user provisioning, and APIs for detailed access control decisions.

3. Maintenance.

  • Regular audits
    Regularly review access logs to verify JIT access is functioning as proposed. Investigate any unusual patterns or account activity by integrating your access logs with your SIEM.
  • User training
    Enlighten users about the relevance of least privilege, JIT Access and its functioning. Assure users are informed on how to request access when required.
  • Feedback loop
    Impliment periodic reviews of your JIT access procedures. Solicit feedback from users and IT team for understanding areas of potential improvement.

By applying this concise approach, a strong Just-in-Time Access framework can be successfully implemented for RingCentral.
