Why Just-In-Time (JIT) Access?
The Legacy Challenge: Traditional RBAC systems often lead to rigid and over-privileged access rights, posing significant security risks and compliance challenges. This outdated model is unsuitable for the agility and flexibility required in cloud environments and by modern workforces.
The Axiom Solution: JIT Access provides a flexible and secure solution, granting access to systems or resources precisely when needed and for a defined duration. This approach significantly reduces vulnerabilities associated with long-standing privileges and compromised credentials, safeguarding against data breaches and enhancing compliance.
Axiom’s Approach to JIT Access
- Dynamic Right-Sized Access: Axiom’s platform allows for the granting of appropriate access levels at the necessary times, eliminating the risks associated with standing privileges and ensuring zero productivity sacrifice.
- User-Centric Integration: The system seamlessly integrates into daily workflows with user-friendly self-service capabilities, compatible with collaboration tools like Slack, Teams, and CLI. This ensures that users can request and receive permissions efficiently and intuitively.
- Automated and Streamlined: Axiom’s platform automates the access granting process, simplifying the user experience and removing the guesswork from request and approval flows.
- Security Without Compromise: Our system allows for the definition of security policies based on compliance regulations and best practices while maintaining the flexibility to address complex permission requests.
Axiom offers three advanced options for efficient and secure access management:
- Just-in-Time Access to Pre-Defined Roles: This option allows for time-limited access to predefined roles, enhancing security by reducing the duration of access privileges.
- Crafting: Addressing the need for granular control in complex cloud environments, ‘Crafting’ offers a nuanced approach to role creation and permission allocation, focusing on resource-specific requests, dependency analysis, and just-in-time role assignment.
- Access Packages: Streamlines access management by allowing users to request predefined packages, such as “Payment-App,” which includes a combination of resources like Okta Group, AWS S3, DynamoDB, and MongoDB Atlas, with a single click.
