Better, Faster Authorization
Better authorization means more data, yet data-heavy authorization can increase cloud costs and complexity. Enterprise OPA achieves 10x memory and 40% CPU throughput improvements for data-heavy authorization. Connect directly to your existing data sources and use live Impact Analysis to minimize authorization risk.
Embrace Large Data Sets for AuthZ
Your enterprise authorization journey brings more data, and with more data comes more problems: CPU and memory footprints balloon, traffic increases, latency grows and suddenly you’re building custom code and complex HTTP workarounds to combat it. Enterprise OPA solves this data problem by moving authorization closer to your sources of truth.
Reduce Infrastructure Costs
Benefit from 10X reduction in memory and 40% increase in CPU throughput at the policy decision point, which translates to smaller cloud instances and more efficient operations.
Using Enterprise OPA’s out-of-the-box datasource integrations allows teams to reduce development costs and get into production quickly.
Minimize Enterprise Risk
Use the industry’s only live Impact Analysis tool to validate policies before deployment, shrinking deployment failure and costly security issues.
How to Use Enterprise OPA
Lean into data-heavy use cases.
Fine-grained Access Control
Make better ABAC decisions by leveraging more contextual data, such as additional fields from an IAM data source, user location data, user risk scores, machine types or any other custom attributes.
Continuous Event Streaming
Send more near-real-time data to Enterprise OPA close using tools like Kafka. With greater local memory available. This means that your authorization engine always has the fullest, most accurate data picture possible at scale.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) teams can easily use existing data sources like Okta or any LDAP tool to extend context-rich identity to policy decisions in your applications. This improves time-to-market, and enables better AuthZ decisions with larger data sets.
Speed time-to-production and minimize risk.
Policy Impact Analysis
Using the industry’s only Impact Analysis tool, Enterprise OPA helps you minimize risk by comparing new policies against live production decisions. Any discrepancies between old and new policies that might impact production are caught before the change ever goes live.
No Data Source Integration Management
Connect to the Styra-supported data sources you already use, without the need to perform any discovery or write and maintain custom data source integrations. Enterprise OPA data sources include: Kafka, HTTP, Okta, Git, S3, GCS, LDAP.
No Workarounds For Your Policy Tech Stack
Even for full-stack integrations, simply send data directly to Enterprise OPA and eliminate the need to create complex HTTP facades to fetch data across services or the requirement that data be sent with policy requests using customer service coding.
From OPA to Enterprise OPA
Styra created and maintains open-source the Open Policy Agent (OPA), and we now offer an enterprise-hardened OPA distribution that is backed by Styra expertise and customer support. As a drop-in replacement for OPA, Enterprise OPA plugs directly into your architecture without any additional learning curve for policy implementers. It comes with out-of-the-box datasource integrations so you can quickly connect to your sources of truth and get to answering production authorization requests.
OPA and Rego set a universal standard for policy and authorization in the cloud and have set a standard in the industry with over 130 million downloads and counting.
