Today’s show is sponsored by strongDM.
Transitioning your team to 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.
Admins get full auditability into anything anyone does: when they connect, what queries they run, what commands are typed. It’s full visibility into everything. For SSH, RDP, and Kubernetes, that means video replays. For databases, it’s a single unified query log across all database management systems.
strongDM is used by companies like Hearst, Peloton, Betterment, Greenhouse, and SoFi to manage access. It’s more control and less hassle.
