Challenges in On-Call Access Management
Managing permissions for on-call engineers presents unique challenges. Excessive or long-standing permissions can jeopardize your most valuable assets, including production environments, source code, and development and testing environments. Traditional methods can either compromise security or hinder the swift response required in on-call situations.
Axiom’s Solution: Just-In-Time Access for On-Call Engineers
- Tailored Access Control: Axiom provides just-in-time (JIT) access, granting on-call developers and DevOps personnel the necessary permissions exactly when needed.
- Seamless Integration: By connecting with PagerDuty and Opsgenie, Axiom ensures that the provisioning of permissions aligns precisely with your on-call schedules and incident response requirements.
- Automated Workflows: Simplify access management with the ability to provide and revoke access effortlessly. Axiom’s automated workflows minimize operational burdens, enabling quick and secure access changes.
Example Use Case: Break-Glass Access Scenario
Imagine a scenario where an on-call engineer needs immediate access to a critical system due to a sudden production issue. With Axiom:
1. Incident Triggered: The incident is reported on PagerDuty or Opsgenie, triggering an alert.
2. Automated Provisioning: Axiom automatically grants the on-call engineer JIT access, tailored to the specific requirements of the incident.
3. Swift Response: The engineer resolves the issue without delays due to access constraints.
4. Access Revoked: Once the task is completed, Axiom automatically revokes the temporary permissions, maintaining a secure environment.
Why Choose Axiom for On-Call Provisioning?
- Enhanced Security: Minimize risks associated with standing permissions while ensuring secure access to critical systems when needed.
- Operational Efficiency: Reduce the manual overhead of managing access rights with automated, context-aware solutions.
- Improved Response Time: Ensure that on-call engineers can respond rapidly to incidents without access-related delays.
