Fine-grained security for applications and APIs
Easily add fine-grained, policy-based, real-time access control to your cloud applications and APIs.
Granular permissions, live in minutes
Use our SDKs, quickstarts, and sample apps to easily integrate the Aserto fine-grained authorization platform.
Roles, hierarchies, subscriptions, sharing & collaboration, ready-to-go in minutes.
Eliminate standing permissions. Enforce in milliseconds, based on real-time data.
Deploy local authorizers to the edge of your application and let Aserto do the rest. The Aserto control plane will sync changes to authorization data with them in real-time to ensure you never authorize over stale data.
Manage all of your users, policies, authorizers, and authorization data from one place.
The Aserto control plane makes understanding authorization logic and managing access across applications as easy as pie.
Works with what you have
Seamlessly add authorization to any application using our complete set of SDKs middleware, or using our gRPC / REST APIs. Then connect your identity provider, user directory, and SIEM tools using our pre-build integration.
Zero trust and least privilege by default
There is no zero trust without fine-grained access controls. Ensure users can only access what they need to at the moment, and easily change that logic, or what they can access.
Compliance without the headache
Aserto automatically collects and aggregates authorization decisions along with all of the inputs, so you have complete audit trails. You can even map decisions to policy versions and the data that was used.
Cloud-native and open source
Aserto is based on a modern, cloud-native, open-source foundation, including the Topaz open-source authorizer, Open Policy Agent decision engine, and a Google Zanzibar inspired directory.
Don't build undifferentiated plumbing
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
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."
"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!"
Netflix authorizes extra members using environmental attributes
Netflix recently rolled out a system to combat account sharing, on a global scale. The enforcement system uses environmental attributes to determine access. This is a great real-world use-case for an attribute-based access control (ABAC) system. Get all the details in the post!
