Styra Launches Contextual Rights for Modern App Authorization | News
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–February 22, 2022–
Styra, Inc., the founders and maintainers of Open Policy Agent (OPA) and leader in cloud native authorization, today announced Styra Declarative Authorization Service (DAS) for cloud native entitlements. Addressing the authorization gap between legacy and modern applications, this new feature enables Identity and Access Management (IAM) teams to take full advantage of existing systems of record while providing developer teams with what they need. need: cloud-native and context-rich. authorization, replicated across clouds, regions, Availability Zones, and clusters. With Styra DAS, enterprises can use their existing centralized IAM systems to seamlessly move applications to the cloud and accelerate their cloud migration with unified authorization.
As organizations continue their digital transformation, they find that their internal entitlement solutions are hindering progress because their functionality also needs to be migrated to the cloud. These services are built on top of LDAP, AD, SCIM, etc., and if left on premise would create a high latency single point of failure for a modern application, a clear anti-pattern for cloud applications.
“For IAM teams that previously had to put together their own band-aid of entitlements, our technology is a game-changer,” said Tim Hinrichs, co-founder and chief technology officer of Styra. “Now, with Styra DAS for Cloud-Native Entitlements, IAM teams can finally transition to cloud-native technologies and scale to the level their organizations require. We are the first and only organization to support this for enterprise environments.
