Axiomatics Releases Upgraded Cloud Native Authorization Engine

CHICAGO – June 4, 2019 – Axiomatics, the leader in externalized, fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced an upgrade to the Axiomatics Policy Server’s cloud-native Policy Decision Point (PDP). As the flagship Axiomatics product, Axiomatics Policy Server (APS) delivers Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) to data, applications, workflows and other business elements in the cloud. The cloud-native PDP now integrates both JSON and REST profiles of XACML 3.0 version 1.1.

The cloud native PDP incorporates the standards-based functionality of ABAC and adds a dynamic layer of security to help organizations accelerate their cloud migration efforts. With dynamic authorization in the cloud, businesses can leverage data more securely to analyze insights and meet business objectives, while also simplifying scalability, change management and portability. The outcome eliminates artificial and cumbersome role structures when deploying an authorization solution in the cloud.

“A policy-based approach to access control that is standards-based will augment the basic security capabilities of cloud platforms and cloud data service providers,” said David Brossard, vice president of customer relations and also the author of the JSON XACML profile. “Axiomatics Policy Server enables the implementation of a cloud-native authorization service that can be elastically scaled, easily deployed in containers, and managed by common orchestration tools.

With APS, sensitive information is securely shared with business units, trusted partners and regulatory bodies. The solution works across multiple applications without a negative impact on latency.

“The cloud-native PDP ensures all elements of the cloud remain safe and secure, even under the most complex access control scenarios,” said Andrés Martinelli, Product Manager at Axiomatics.
