Getting Started with Apono

This page will help you get started with Apono. You'll be up and running in a moment!

:tada: Welcome to Apono! :tada:
Apono simplifies access and permissions management to your application stack. Apono fully integrates to your cloud assets, network and dev applications, databases and more!

Why Apono?

If you are like us and are in need of a solution to help you simplify and automate permissions management to cloud infrastructure, data repositories and applications.
As a cloud-native or migrated agile organization the permissions needed by employees to the environment is ever changing and requires manual work to manage, maintain and review.

  • Free yourself from repeated permissions granting tasks across the multitude of applications, data repositories and infrastructure.
  • Dynamic permissions without the manual provisioning and deprovisioning tasks.
  • Reduce dangerous over privileges in your environment.
  • Prevent human errors with employees receiving exactly the right level of permissions they need (per task, day or project).
  • Stop working for access reviews. Make your compliance team happy with comprehensive access audits of all your RnD applications, data repositories and infrastructure in one place.

Our mission is to simplify access permissions for every cloud-native organization

What is Apono?

Apono is the first Cloud-Native Centralized Access Management Platform. With Apono, you can:

  1. Employees can request or automatically receive (per context) access to any RnD application or data repository (with a granular-level of permissions) all through Slack, Teams or via CLI.
  2. Permissions are granted, revoked and fully audited automatically according to Access Flow.
    Access Flows allow to specify approvers, duration, context (groups in your IDP, on-call shifts, tickets in your ITSM, daytimes per timezone, and more) and more.
  3. Every access is audited.

🚦Enough! Let's get started already.

Getting started with Apono is easy and takes just a few minutes.
To begin, you can choose a cloud account that you would like to connect or integrate a specific application or data repository to manage access to.

Integration Quick Start

  1. Integrating a cloud account and choosing services that we'd like to manage access to in Apono.


    • If you would like to connect an AWS cloud account, Follow these steps.

    • Now that we've successfully connected our cloud account, let's choose cloud services or data repositories which we'd like to manage access to in Apono.
      Let's start with a simple connection to S3 Storage service. Once we've connected S3 we'll be able to create Access Flows configuring dynamic permissions to S3 buckets.

      If you would like to connect a GCP cloud account, Follow these steps.

      Data Repository or Specific Applications
      Choose a local data repository integration or an application from the catalog that you would like to integrate in order to create dynamic Access Flows for in Apono.

  2. Connecting an Identity provider application (this can be your Google workspace, OKTA or maybe Azure AD). From here Apono syncs your users and groups automatically for group context.

  3. Installing the Apono Slack bot for employees to easily get request, receive, view and approve access permissions requests.



You've successfully integrated with Apono and it's finally time to create an Access Flow!
