Just-in-Time Access To Cloud Spanner
With Apono you’ll be able to create dynamic Access Flows that grant on-demand permissions with high granularity and full audit.
Cloud Spanner is a fully managed, globally distributed, horizontally scalable relational database service provided by Google Cloud. It is designed to offer the scalability and performance of a NoSQL database while maintaining the relational model and SQL capabilities of traditional relational databases.
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.
Developer JIT Access
- Limit access to the minimum required permissions and implement 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 comprehensive 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 downtime and costly mistakes in production.
- 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.

Single Source of Truth
Centralize and streamline the management of privileges across your entire technology stack by consolidating them within a unified platform. This 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.
Equip first-responders with the capability to access permissions on demand, while concurrently capturing essential incident context, details of granted access, and the chronological timeline of events.
Self-Service Access Requests
Amplify employee productivity through the implementation of an efficient system that empowers individuals to seamlessly discover, request, and obtain access to essential resources in a matter of minutes. This transformative approach not only expedites operational efficiency but also cultivates an environment characterized by heightened agility and responsiveness.
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.
