strongDM delivers infrastructure access that DevOps can code with Terraform provider

Businesses ensure access is locked down the moment infrastructure is deployed without disrupting workflows

Burlingame, CA - May 20, 2021 - strongDM, the infrastructure access network, today announced the strongDM Terraform provider.  This gives DevOps teams the ability to provision secure infrastructure access, as code, the moment resources are deployed.  strongDM customers are able to define and deploy access securely to 100% of their infrastructure with confidence it was done right from the start.

DevOps teams have already adopted the philosophy that infrastructure can be treated as code, but provisioning access for employees to these systems still requires separate, manual steps.

This process is far from seamless, which disrupts and slows down development cycles. Additionally, security processes are left as shelfware because they create too much friction. And when security is bypassed, it’s not working.

strongDM completes the infrastructure-as-code lifecycle to include access-as-code while improving the business’ security posture. DevOps teams are able to embrace the shift-left of security practices with no extra steps and zero disruption to their or end user workflows. Security teams are confident that infrastructure access is secure, controlled, and logged from the beginning.

"With strongDM, my team is able to complete the “as code” lifecycle, which allows for rapid scaling while following our security best practices throughout deployment.” said Vivek Desai, VP, Cloud Infrastructure at Olive. “Without the typical access chaos and complexity, my team gets time back for more important work and frictionless workflows. Everyone gets access to exactly what they need, when they need it, without sacrificing our security posture.”

“strongDM was designed from day one to seamlessly integrate with the modern developer workflow.” said Justin McCarthy, strongDM’s Co-founder & CTO. “By extending the DevOps mantra of infrastructure-as-code to include access-as-code, we’re making it possible to manage access and audit controls in just seconds. For the first time, the more secure way to manage infrastructure access is also more convenient.”

Benefits of strongDM’s Terraform provider are:

  • Instantly grant or revoke access to infrastructure the moment resources are deployed or destroyed
  • Immediately enroll databases, servers, and clusters within strongDM’s control plane
  • Easily deploy and scale strongDM as your infrastructure footprint changes and grows
  • Use Terraform to also configure strongDM + HashiCorp Vault integration
