SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 24, 2021
Long recognized as pioneers of visual modeling for IAM, Atricore’s research and development team has released the beta of a new tool at the intersection of Identity Access Management and DevOps. Vendor-agnostic IAM.tf facilitates the visual configuration of IDaaS-based identity management solutions, harnessing Terraform scripts to bring the code to life.
IAM.tf is an in-browser cloud tool that introduces a unique IAM-as-code approach to configuring popular identity management solutions like Okta and Auth0. The vendor-agnostic tool breaks down barriers between popular IAM products, automatically generating Terraform scripts as the user visually describes IAM functionality like MFA and Social SSO. Out-of-the-box support for Okta and Auth0 is included, and AWS Cognito and Azure are in the works.
Leveraging Terraform to automatically generate scripts for IDaaS solutions, IAM.tf can be used to supplement existing cloud solutions like Okta or Auth0, covering typical last-mile challenges such as on-boarding legacy applications, provisioning social sign-in with Google or Facebook, or implementing MFA—all without writing a single line of code.
“By offering a subscription-based service, without any licensing fees, we hope to bring the convenience and ease-of-use of visual modeling to other cloud IAM solutions, not just our own product line,” says Atricore CEO Gianluca Brigandi. “As both a services and product company with a very active R&D arm, we feel that we’re in a pretty unique position to do so. I’m incredibly proud of our developers, who’ve been able to harness widely available open source tools to create something that can benefit anyone who is struggling with what can often be a tedious and difficult process: that’s the bridging of the gap between an enterprise’s legacy applications and today’s popular IDaaS solutions. The current beta covers Okta and Auth0 and we’re hoping to expand that coverage to other products in 2021.”
The IAM.tf tool is freely available, with practically no friction as far as adoption is concerned – it only requires a browser.
Atricore CTO Sebastian Gonzalez explains: “You can think of IAM.tf as something to layer on top of your existing IDaaS. It doesn’t interfere with it in any way, and it provides your tech team with an intuitive method to configure things without the need to dig around in the code. By building on Terraform, we’ve been able to automate the provisioning work in a consistent and repeatable fashion, as well as describing the infrastructure details using their widely adopted configuration language. So it’s really vendor-agnostic; you can use it with any one, or several, IAM stacks. If your company already uses one or more of those, this is something you can just add to your toolkit.”
