Get to know our co-founders, executive team, advisors and board members.
Our co-founders, Tim Hinrichs and Teemu Koponen, saw that the coming shift to cloud-based applications was going to require an entirely new set of processes and technologies. Containerization was in its infancy, but already Hinrichs and Koponen realized that with the explosion of APIs in the cloud, the industry would need a new, unified way to solve authorization. Defining “who can do what,” and “what can do what,” in an ever-expanding set of new technologies and components was going to present new challenges for delivery speed, cyber security and application uptime and reliability.
To address these challenges and realize their mission of solving authorization, the Styra founders created Open Policy Agent and Styra Declarative Authorization Service.
