Managing your remote team as they work from home? Managing a gazillion SSH keys, database passwords, and Kubernetes certs?
Meet strongDM. Manage and audit access to servers, databases, and Kubernetes clusters, no matter where your employees are.
With strongDM, easily extend your identity provider to manage infrastructure access. Automate onboarding, offboarding, and moving people within roles. Grant temporary access that automatically expires to on-call teams.
