Just-in-Time Access To AWS
Apono liberates DevOps teams to deliver more without delay.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform provided by Amazon. It offers a wide range of services and products that can be used to build and manage applications and infrastructure in the cloud. AWS provides a secure and scalable environment for businesses to run their applications, store their data, and access a wide range of computing resources on-demand.
Just-in-time (JIT) access involves assigning permissions to users or systems in real-time as needed, rather than maintaining continuous access. This strategy is frequently employed in cybersecurity to reduce the risk of security breaches by restricting unnecessary access. It aligns with the principle of least privilege (polp), emphasizing that users should only have the minimum access levels required to fulfill their tasks
AWS Use Cases
Developer JIT Access
- Limit access to the minimum required permissions and implementing strict controls on when those permissions are granted, JIT access helps enhance overall security. This proactive approach reduces the risk of unauthorized access and potential security breaches.
- Integrate JIT access with your incident response plan. In the event of a security incident, having the ability to quickly adjust access permissions can be crucial for containing and mitigating the impact.
- Utilize JIT access with your identity management systems. This integration streamlines the process of aligning access permissions with changes in user roles, making it more efficient and less prone to errors.
Secure Break-glass Access
- Manage break-glass access, balancing the need for emergency access with the imperative of maintaining robust security measures.
- Implement robust logging and monitoring systems to track and record break-glass access events.
- Dynamically grant only the permissions needed for the task at hand to prevent costly mistakes in production and downtime.
- Escape the frustration of ticket fatigue and the time-consuming nature of manual provisioning through the implementation of automated access flows.
- Embrace innovation to revolutionize your workflow, saving time and resources, enhancing efficiency, and ensuring a secure access management system.
- Automate your access control and witness a transformative shift in permission allocation within your organization.
With Apono, companies satisfy customer security requirements and dramatically reduce attack surfaces and human errors that threaten commerce.
Restrict Access To Task/Time
Make sure engineers, support, SREs or other employees receive the permissions they need only when they need them, maintaining a Least Standing Privilege Environment at any time (especially when it comes to production).
Empower your developers to gain self-servable access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) services, buckets, instances and more using Slack, Teams, or the CLI.
Restricted Third-Party Access
Facilitate time-based access for third parties, be they customers or vendors, by granting specific permissions to designated buckets, databases, or instances. This enhanced security measure incorporates Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) verification, ensuring that third parties authenticate their identity through multiple factors before gaining access.
Define the authorized categories of data and resources for users, groups, and dynamic contexts like on-call shifts. Establish explicit guidelines for access and utilization, ensuring a structured and secure framework. Incorporating dynamic contexts, such as on-call shifts, enhances system adaptability and promotes a nuanced, responsive resource allocation approach based on varying operational requirements.
