Rho – Case Study
Rho is an all-in-one finance platform that offers fully automated solutions for accounts payable, cards, expense management, and treasury.
Rho operates in a market that is strongly regulated, and they were looking for a solution to help them meet access control requirements. They also needed a solution that could seamlessly integrate with their existing environments.
Rho needed a solution that is easy-to-use for all. It needed a better way to simplify sending access requests and managing approvals and integrations with the most popular third-party vendors.
Rho was looking for a quick way to deliver granular, time-bound access in real-time in accordance with Rho's access policies.
Rho needed a strict audit of who accessed what, when, and why – all under one unified control plane. This helps maintain compliance with strict industry regulations at all times with continuous least-privilege access to the production environment or sensitive data.
Rho was looking for a way to reduce the number of standing privileges, while still being productive, throughout the organization.
Rho needed robust APIs for easy integrations to additional resources and connections to their existing tech stack. It works right out of the box, but also empowers users with next-level customizability and control.
Rho wanted the ability to create flexible, no-code workflows, which play a pivotal role in automating least-privilege access. These workflows enable organizations to define customizable approval sets based on various criteria, such as data sensitivity, identity provider (IdP) group membership, access duration, on-call schedules, and more.
Unfortunately, access controls offered by cloud providers today are often lacking in some areas, especially in ease of use, maintenance, burden, and lack of proper temporal support.
Just-in-time access is really hard to get right in cloud environments today. What Apono does for us is they streamline this whole process.
With Apono, Rho can now deploy temporary just-in-time access across all of their environments – while maintaining compliance with strict regulations.
Apono is a DevOps-first solution that prioritizes an easy-to-use experience for the end users. Simplify sending access requests, managing approvals, and integrations with the most popular third-party vendors.
Leverage Apono’s robust API for easy integrations to additional resources and connections to your existing tech stack. It works right out of the box, but also empowers you with next-level customizability and control.
Access is tailored to the task at hand in both granularity and duration by issuing just-in-time permissions that can be revoked after a predefined period, or when a task has been completed.
Have a strict audit of who accessed what, when, and why – all under one unified control plane. Maintain compliance with strict industry regulations at all times with continuous least privilege access to the production environment or sensitive data.
By implementing Apono for ephemeral, time-dependent access to data and applications, Rho was able to enhance efficiency. This allowed them to replace labor-intensive procedures for requesting, reviewing, authorizing, and revoking permissions, resulting in an increased boost in productivity.
