OptScale controls user permissions to internal workloads and grants and revokes temporary access to any IT environment by invoking a job, script, or hook, which is a ‘black box’ for OptScale and controlled by your own IT security team. The solution doesn’t store or manage any secrets and is completely invulnerable to cyber-attacks.

Traditional environment access management flow
Environment access management flow with OptScale
It is quite common for all engineers to use the same credentials for all internal tests or development environments. This clearly doesn’t meet security best practices. OptScale provides companies with a workflow to conveniently and securely manage engineers’ temporary access to IT workloads.
Engineers enjoy a simple process of obtaining temporary access, which is revoked when IT environments are no longer needed. OptScale builds a secure mechanism for proxying access requests without accessing data about your company’s security architecture and practices.
OptScale allows you to acquire or book IT environments and proxies ‘grant’ and ‘revoke’ access requests from your engineers’. Scripts used for access management are fully owned by your IT security team and are a ‘black box’ for the product. Script samples are available for quick setup.
Comprehensive audit logs help to keep the transparency of IT environment usage and contain all the necessary information, such as; session details, (who and when they used the IT environment), technical job call details like request parameters, and script response.
