Track and audit access requests, grants and denials without without requiring further developer effort.
Cerbos makes it possible to quickly, easily and securely set up and change roles and permissions of any complexity, allowing even non-technical stakeholders to make changes, while reducing the risk of incidents resulting from a failed update to authorization logic.
Ensure compliance with a full audit trail of policies, permissions, and access resources, while proactively addressing security and compliance concerns.
Cerbos Hub is a collaborative platform for streamlined authorization policy authoring, iteration and management, ensuring consistent permissions across applications.
Define and evolve complex policies and roll them out without requiring a development cycle.
Be enterprise ready and meet each of your customer's organizational requirements with ease.
With Cerbos, maintain full control over your authorization processes. You own where policies are stored, and deploy onto any platform, ensuring independence and portability.
Due to Cerbos being self-hosted, you can deploy it in environments with strict compliance requirements such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, and GDPR.
Cerbos empowers teams to define RBAC, ABAC and fine-grained access control policies, ensuring precise control over resource access and actions.
Join a thriving community of Cerbos users and contributors, ensuring you have ample support and resources at your disposal.
Gather requirements from across your business for what the premissioning logic should be in the application.
Based upon your business logic, define policies which implement the rules, checking roles and conditions for each resource kind in the application.
Working with your development team add in the permission checks - this only has to be done once!
As new requirements come along new policies and conditions can be introduced without having to make a code change.
"It's weird to say an outside company has our back, but Cerbos does. It's the people. It's their open-source code: it's high quality, you can read it, it does what it says on the tin"
"It's a good feeling being able to say yes to almost any permissioning requirement." "Cerbos is small, contained and easy to implement. It 100% delivers on the promise of abstracting away the complexity of decision making."
"We're not worried about scaling because we can easily increase our load on Cerbos. It will also be easy for us to change how we're distributing policies as we reach different points of scale."
"We went from one user - every role, to a world where there are many users - many roles. And the product, it relies on Cerbos to actually bring the value that we want to bring to customers. All of our customers are relying on Cerbos, by relying on the product, which is of course relying on Cerbos."
"Instead of thinking of how much time Cerbos has saved us, I think about how much time it didn't cost us. It didn't cost us any time. Cerbos just works. I don't have to think about it. It's as simple as that."
"One of our big considerations was speed. We have strict latency tolerances. When it comes to Cerbos - you can call it a hundred times during a request and it doesn't matter. It's incredibly fast."
"If it wasn't for Cerbos, one thing is for sure - we would've launched later than we did. As a result, we would have less customers. And the maintenance part is also very important. Our technical team would be dealing with daily stuff regarding access controls, access logs. Now, we don't have to spend any time on that."
"Cerbos policy writing is quite flexible, and deploying as a unit microservice as well. Cerbos "doesn't get in the way" once integrated, that's the best part."
"It is easy to implement and provides a solution for a problem that is often not properly addressed."
"Having the separation of the permissions from the code base just makes the code base more elegant. It makes the permissioning more elegant. It means they're centralized, so they're not tied to specific endpoints. And ultimately it means that different business owners have the ability to actually make updates."
"Just discovered your embedded testing framework. This is probably the best balance between hyperfocused functionality and embedded tooling I've ever seen in an open source project. Damn, good work!"
