Why choose Aserto for authorization?

It's time to stop 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.

Get off the treadmill

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.

Free up your engineers

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

What the experts say...

"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."

“A policy-centric authorization solution for developers is a glaring hole in the market, and there is no team on the planet better equipped to build it to enterprise-grade."

"B2B SaaS vendors have a huge opportunity going after the enterprise, but only if they meet enterprise expectations, as we've captured in EnterpriseReady.io. Replicated serves 50% of the F100, and we know first-hand that authorization and RBAC are table-stakes for enterprise adoption. It's obvious to me that partnering with Aserto is a far better approach compared to rolling your own and having to reinvent the wheel."
