They can as well reduce insider risk with Role Based Access Control, and use Zones as a security isolation feature, capitalizing on its new delegated administration capabilities. In addition, together with process privileges, customers can add modern security policies to legacy applications without changing them, which offers enough granularity to meet their specific security requirements.
