Security Benefits for Kubernetes

Security-as-code for Kubernetes

Declarative by design

Manually “doing security” in today’s cloud-native environments is like a never-ending game of whack-a-mole.

Styra works with Kubernetes to define, enforce, and monitor desired state, and eliminate the runtime guessing game.

Define what’s right, then let the APIs work.

Dynamic rules for
dynamic environments

Simply put, Styra takes in business context, and outputs security decisions across your namespaces and clusters.

Build policy-as-code directly via CLI, or with a simple point-and-click editor, and validate security before committing.

Eliminate hard-coding policy into software.

Portable, powerful policy

Styra allows you to define policy once, then enforce wherever necessary. No more best-effort security, no more policy silos.

Built on the Open Policy Agent (the leading open source policy engine), enforcement is accurate, fast, and simple.

One and done? Yup. Done.

Minimize risk and accelerate development

Security & Compliance

You build and maintain an approved image registry, base OS/distros, compliance and audit rules, and more.

Styra ensures your best practices are actually in use across Kubernetes to minimize threat surface and mitigate risk.

Kubernetes Security Teams

You make sure your platform is available, reliable, and ready to ship new code.

Styra gives you simple guardrails to enforce labeling policy, resource allocation, naming schema, privileged/service accounts and more - quickly and easily.

Kubernetes DevOps Teams

You focus on what you do best - creating new features and optimizing code.

Styra minimizes the risk of human error by offloading compliance overhead and providing a policy that’s simple to understand, test, debug, and extend.

Kubernetes Developers
Kubernetes Compliance via Declarative Authorization
Policy Without the Pain

Styra is the fastest and easiest way to put guardrails around your Kubernetes clusters--whether you’re a developer, an admin, or a bit of both.


  • Need to limit which folks can access data, based on who is currently on call? Simple.
  • Want to define which microservices can access particular streaming data? We got you.
  • Have to prove compliance with regulations on your customer data? No sweat.

Built on open-source, and declarative by design, Styra’s simple graphical library of customizable policies lets you easily mitigate risks, reduce human error, and accelerate development.


Committed to Open Source

At Styra, we believe that Open Source holds the keys to the future. That's why we founded the Open Policy Agent (OPA) project and continue to contribute to it (along with a great community of other folks).

With the power of OPA for local enforcement, and Styra as a management plane, we believe that DevOps teams can have truly meaningful, and very powerful. visibility and control over their environments.
