What is access control?
A great access control resource is the OWASP Access Control Cheat Sheet. It describes what access control is and access control policies.
According to OWASP's definition of access control - "authorization is the process where requests to access a particular resource should be granted or denied".
The main confusing part for many people is that authentication is not equal to authorization. Authentication validates the identity while authorization determines what the end user can actually access.
Technopedia defines access control as
"Way of limiting access to a system or to physical or virtual resources".

Access groups, access data, occupancy anaytlics, and day/location restrictions, Kisi's cloud-access control removes the risk of untracked keys and unauthorized access.
