Requesting Access with Web Portal

Using the Apono web portal to request access and manage access requests

Intro

Apono is a platform for Just-in-Time access management that keeps organizations secure and compliant.

Apono makes it easier for DevOps, DevSecOps, IT and IAM Ops to manage access, reduces risk of human error and attack and eliminates the need for clunky IT service management systems in your everyday work.

If your organization is using Apono, access to cloud resources in development, CI/CD, data repositories, cloud infrastructure and more is managed centrally.

With CLI, developers can also schedules requests for access needed daily or weekly simply by rerunning the same command.
