strongDM

Trust strongDM to manage an engineers access to everything

5.0/5
About

strongDM extends your SSO to manage access to any database or server in any environment. It's like reaching inbox zero for authorized keys files. Less work, more control, and an audit trail of every query, ssh & RDP session.

Would you recommend this product?
Founder and CEO at Viable

I can't think of an infra product that I would recommend more than StrongDM.

Pros:

* It blew my mind in the demo and then actually delivered on the promise. * The team is extremely responsive to feedback.

Cons:

The client can be a little finicky at times when logging in, but I'm sure they're working on it.

We are blown away by your review! Thanks for the kind words, we're always open to any other feedback you and your team has.

We found strongDM as part of research into what is required to get SOC2 audits. Upon starting to use strongDM, I'm not sure why you wouldn't use it when you need to control access amongst your team.

Pros:

* Simple management of servers and datasources. * Audit logs and replays * Read only access by default! * The team is great!

Cons:

None so far

Pros:

Simple to use and easy to teach to the team. Feels native and easy to use. It allows us to accomplish our BeyondCorp goals easily.

Cons:

Continual product improvement, mainly around flexibility and number of options for systems connectivity. Better RDP support.
