Just-in-Time Access To MongoDB

Utilize the capabilities of Apono to effortlessly design dynamic Access Flows, enabling the provision of on-demand, finely detailed permissions that are fully traceable and auditable.

Apono automates access to MongoDB

Enhance the efficiency and security of your database management by seamlessly integrating MongoDB with the robust capabilities of Apono. This integration facilitates the automation of access management to databases or collections, ushering in a new era of streamlined and dynamic control. With Apono, the process becomes effortlessly intuitive, allowing users to create intricate access workflows tailored to their specific needs.

01. Automated Database Permissions Approval Workflows

Align the access approval workflow with meticulously defined organizational permission guardrails to enhance precision and efficiency, fortifying overall security posture. This methodical approach ensures a seamless and compliant framework, maintaining heightened control over critical resources.

02. Granular MongoDB Database Access

Define MongoDB database and collection permissions as fine-grained as necessary.

03. Tailored Production Engineer Access

Implement a tailored approach to permissions management by ensuring that access to sensitive resources is precisely calibrated to the specific needs and responsibilities of each user or system. This involves meticulously providing right-size permissions, aligning with the principle of least privilege. By adopting this meticulous strategy, you not only enhance the overall security posture of your system but also minimize the potential risks associated with excessive or insufficient access.

04. Decreased Insider Threats

The implementation of just-in-time privilege escalation serves to mitigate internal threats by ensuring that personnel are granted access to sensitive information or specific operational capabilities only when essential. This precautionary measure helps prevent unauthorized or unintentional data access.

05. Just-In-Time Permissions

Empower your development team by implementing a sophisticated access management strategy that involves the judicious granting of temporary, just-in-time permissions tailored specifically to the task at hand. This approach ensures that developers receive the precise level of access required for their immediate objectives, promoting a fine-tuned and secure access control system within your organizational framework. By embracing this nuanced strategy, you not only enhance the agility and productivity of your development processes but also minimize the potential risks associated with granting prolonged or unnecessary access.

06. Human-Error Prevention

Proactively address incorrect read/write permissions to prevent disruptions and data corruption in your production environment. Regular audits help identify and rectify misconfigurations, ensuring the security and stability of critical data.

07. Request & Approve via ChatOps

Leverage the power of ChatOps workflows, seamlessly integrating platforms such as Slack and Teams, to both grant and request access in a collaborative and streamlined manner. This innovative approach enhances the accessibility and efficiency of access management within your organizational framework. By incorporating ChatOps, you create an environment where access permissions can be granted or requested through intuitive and user-friendly interfaces, such as chat interfaces in Slack or Teams.

08. Single Source of Truth

Centralize and streamline the management of privileges across your entire technology stack by consolidating them within a unified platform. This approach not only enhances efficiency but also facilitates a more comprehensive and cohesive oversight of the various permissions and access levels throughout your system, contributing to a more robust and integrated security framework.

09. Comprehensive Audit Log

Enhance MongoDB access and permissions transparency, facilitating comprehensive auditing for incident investigation and the implementation of scheduled reporting mechanisms to meet compliance requirements effectively.

Automate Access To MongoDB

What is Just in Time Access?

Just-In-Time (JIT) access revolves around the dynamic allocation of permissions to users or systems precisely when required, in real-time, as opposed to the conventional practice of sustaining continuous access. This strategic approach holds significant prominence in the cybersecurity realm, as it plays a pivotal role in mitigating the inherent risks associated with security breaches by judiciously curbing unnecessary access points. The fundamental philosophy of JIT access seamlessly aligns with the well-established principle of least privilege (POLP), a cornerstone in the domain of cybersecurity governance.

Integrate with Apono in 3 easy steps

Three easy steps are what it takes to create Just-In-Time and Just Enough permissions for everyone with access to your cloud assets and resources.

1. Install a Connector

Connectors are the components that mediate between Apono and your resources to sync data from cloud applications and grant and revoke access permissions.

The Connector does not read, cache or store any secrets, nor does Apono need an account with admin privileges to function. The Connector contacts your secret store or key vault when it needs to sync data or provision access.

Here’s how Connectors work:

2. Integrate With Cloud Apps

After you’ve installed the Connector, integrate Apono with your cloud applications to sync data on users, groups, resources and permissions.

Apono currently has integrations for 35+ resource types in AWS, GCP, Azure and Kubernetes platforms, as well as development and CI/CD tools, databases, incident response tools, IdP, ChatOps products, and more. Check the Integrations Catalog for details and to see the latest.

3. Create Access Flows

Create an Access Flows by answering five questions:
