Nope! Styra DAS Free is automatically provisioned for you within minutes. No conversation, no demo.
Of course, for DAS Enterprise, we'll need to understand the size of your deployment, and whether or not you want to run in the cloud or on-premises before we can get set up.
So what's keeping you? Dive right in! (...and know that our team is here if you need us, of course.)
Our goal was to make it as quick and easy as possible to get into Styra DAS, and get policy deployed right away.
When you sign up above, just have a minikube ready, because as soon as you login we'll give you a quick tour of Styra DAS and its key capabilities.
You'll then load up some sample resources onto minikube, and Styra DAS will suggest some policies to put in place. You'll have full visibility into any current policy violations BEFORE you enforce them, and we'll even walk you running kubectl to create your first policy violation to see OPA+DAS in action.
No calls, no demos, no credit card. No kidding!
Open Policy Agent (OPA) is the cloud-native computing foundation project Styra founded to provide unified authorization across the cloud-native stack. Styra Declarative Authorization Service (DAS) is the control plane/management plane for OPA. It provides a single pane of glass for policy authoring, distribution, impact analysis, monitoring, and auditing. They're like PB&J—they go great together!
Styra DAS is the control plane for OPA. You run OPA wherever you want and then connect it to Styra DAS as its management/control plane. For all communication, OPA reaches out to DAS over HTTPS and authenticates with a bearer token. (We configure all this for you if you follow the installation instructions provided by Styra DAS).
Styra DAS has 100s of policies built right in, so you can get started in minutes—there's even a quick start to walk you through setting up your first policies if you like.
If you want to dive deeper and understand how to build fully custom policies with Open Policy Agent, then Styra academy is what you're looking for! We've built out tons of lessons on OPA, and its policy language Rego—directly from Styra, the folks who invented it!
