Don't build undifferentiated plumbing

Reinventing the wheel

Authorization is complex

Evaluating policy against real-time user attributes with millisecond latency and 100% availability is a distributed systems problem. Most engineering teams can't justify taking the time to fully solve it.

Requirements constantly evolve

Custom roles. Custom attributes. Integration with enterprise identity providers and directories. Decision logs. ISO 27001. As products move up-market, teams that build them can't keep up.

You could be building customer value

"I want to rewrite RBAC!" said no engineer, ever. Your team could be working on end-user features instead of undifferentiated heavy lifting.

Built by developers, for developers

David Kerber

VP of Technology

"Authorization involves really hard problems that I want experts to solve. We like to focus our internal engineering efforts on our customers and their problems. Aserto allows us to do just that, at a small fraction of the cost it would take to build and maintain it ourselves, not to mention the opportunity cost."

Mathias Biilmann Christensen

Co-founder & CEO, Netlify

"As millions of developers and businesses are adopting a Jamstack approach, most modern web applications involve multiple APIs and services. Aserto's promise of separating policies from code could radically simplify the implementation of authorization across the front-end UI and the larger world of back-end functions and endpoints."

Tom Preston-Werner

Co-founder, GitHub

"Building & managing an authorization/RBAC system is a huge pain, especially at enterprise scale. So stop! Aserto has a distributed, millisecond latency, 100% availability API for that. I'm excited to help as an angel investor!"

Securing the software supply chain for Policy-as-Code

Open Policy Agent (OPA) has been adopted in a wide variety of authorization scenarios. In all instances, extracting policy out of the application and expressing it as code has substantial benefits.
