There are various pieces of software in the cloud-native ecosystem, and each of these needs to implement policy and authorization to address the security and audit needs.
There are policy and authorization decisions that need to be handled across this cloud-native ecosystem, and each of these different pieces of software provides its own authorization solutions which are tied to that software. There was no unified way to address this authorization issue, which gave birth to Open Policy Agent (OPA). OPA (www.openpolicyagent.org) is a full-fledged policy engine that offloads policy decisions from your software and Styra DAS (www.styra.com) are a control plane that helps to operationalize OPA across the various pieces of software in the cloud-native ecosystem.
We, as Zelar, in partnership with Styra, the creator of OPA and Styra DAS, helps you in implementing OPA and DAS in your ecosystem, thereby offloading your policy decision making to the OPA policy engine. With Styra DAS, an organization is able to operationalize OPA across Kubernetes, Microservices, public cloud, or custom APIs.
