Otta's take on strongDM

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

With cyber threats becoming increasingly common over the last decade, securing access permissions within data infrastructures is essential to enterprise survival. However, managing this task can be expensive and complicated, leading some small businesses to combine various budget open-source data services which results in insecure and convoluted infrastructures.

strongDM provides a tool for managing permissions and access within data infrastructures, achieved by ensuring information is siloed to prevent one person from accessing all parts of the infrastructure. In addition to providing these modular security features, the company also makes it easier for technical staff to access the information that they need based on one-click identity checks.

Whilst plenty of data infrastructure tools already exist with the purpose of securing permission, strongDM have made the smart move of integrating their siloed approach to auditable permissions whilst making access easier to those with permission. The company claims that its service guarantees frictionless and auditable data infrastructure by also automating access logging and data capturing across entire IT stacks.
