Policy Translation: Future proof your authorization strategy

Policy Translation: Future proof your authorization strategy

Our authorization solution is an externalized authorization architecture that connects to attributes and signals so enterprises can make contextual policy decisions in real-time.

See it in action

Connect existing policies with the power of your attributes and signals

As an important component of Orchestrated Authorization, policy translation provides enterprises with the confidence they are deploying an open, flexible solution that supports a landscape of authorization languages, including the Abbreviated Language for Authorization (ALFA) and the Open Policy Agent (OPA).

With policy translation, Axiomatics delivers the tools to connect existing attributes, signals, and enforcement points with existing policies created in common authorization languages. This enables your team to work in the environment that best suits their business.

Orchestrated Authorization connects the policies you have with the strategy you are moving towards without impacting any of your existing access control investments.

The benefits of Policy Translation for your business

Deploy without boundaries

Empower application teams to deploy authorization policies that are designed to integrate across enterprise environments as well as multiple policy languages.

Axiomatics provides enterprises with a variety of tools to help connect signals as well as enforcement points through out-of-the-box APIs and connectors.

Support an Agile reality

As enterprises grow, so does the need for authorization policies to support new product and application development.

With policy translation, the enterprise is deploying an authorization solution that is agile enough to solve the current requirements of today, while also ready to solve future authorization requirements.

Accelerate application development

Identity and security leaders are more focused on enabling the business than ever before.

With Axiomatics, they can provide application and development teams with pre-packaged connectors and tools to accelerate the development of authorization policies.

Connecting common authorization languages into one, cohesive strategy

The Open Policy Agent (OPA) standard offers community-created connectors for attributes and endpoints that developers can use to drive effective authorization within your organization.

For those organizations looking to do more with OPA, our Abbreviated Language for Authorization (ALFA) framework enables you to connect to the existing OPA ecosystem of policy enforcement and information points, while still leveraging the policy creation and management benefits of ALFA, which include:

  • A language that is much easier for developers to learn.
  • Out of the box algorithms and support for policy conflict resolutions.
  • A policy testing framework that connects to your DevOps pipeline.

Axiomatics’ Policy Translation solution in action

As enterprises adopt an Orchestrated Authorization strategy, Axiomatics wants to ensure you can benefit from the growing community of publicly available enforcement and information points so that even if your policies are created in ALFA, you can still use an enforcement point that has been created by OPA.
