Developers might share credentials to spare themselves the agony of waiting for approval. Their convenient shortcuts introduce serious security risks, such as zombie accounts, that make it impossible to know who did what, when, and where. strongDM provides a practical approach to least privilege that’s easier for both admins and developers.
Extend any identity provider to manage access to databases, servers, Kubernetes clusters, and clouds.
Creates a single source of truth that is easier to manage and implements security best practices like role-based access control and least privilege.
Standardize on least privilege access so you don’t over-permission someone for a specific resource.
Enforce Zero Trust security by default.
Maintain a comprehensive audit trail so you’re prepared if the auditors come calling.
Log every permission request, approval, and revocation.
Log every query and command to answer who did what, where, and when.
Speed up evidence collection with a single, centralized log that covers your entire stack.
What I really needed was the audit trail. For us, it was the most important thing to have. For security analysis, for SOC 2, and for HIPAA compliance, we need to be aware of all the operations that happen inside an environment.”
