Helping cloud teams scale AWS IAM security at:
IAM is hard on your own
Unexpected IAM admins and unused IAM principals.
Access gaps to critical data and keys.
Not being able to confirm you actually fixed IAM by verifying expected access.
Complicated and slow processes interfering with continuous delivery.
Wanting to achieve least privilege but don’t know how.
IAM simplified & scaled
Find all IAM admins in less than one minute.
Secure data with policies generated by k9’s usable infrastructure automation libraries.
Test all of your AWS security policies, even in production.
Scale identity management with simple processes that continuously eliminate excess IAM permissions.
Declare least privilege access to data quickly and correctly.
No Overloaded Experts.
The simplest & most scalable way of managing AWS IAM permissions.
IAM users & roles
Buckets, Keys, & DBs
Scale up without security slowing you down.
Cloud teams reduce the risk of accidents and data breaches with k9’s usable security automation and IAM access reporting. Now you can secure IAM at the speed of continuous delivery. .
k9 is built for non-security experts. Your entire team will understand desired & actual access and be able to manage it with tools you already use. Start in less than 30 minutes.
95% less time spent on IAM
Increase your security easily with usable infrastructure code and expert support. We provide you with step by step processes that eliminate policy guesswork.
Production-ready Terraform & CDK
Audit the access each IAM principal actually has to APIs and data resources whenever you want. Easily integrate with your existing dashboards and tools.
5 optimized audit processes
Simple Daily Reporting
k9 tells you exactly what AWS permissions allow today and every day.
k9 determines who has access with the AWS IAM simulation APIs nightly. The analysis covers Service Control, IAM, and Resource policies and integrates external access findings from AWS IAM Access Analyzer. Actionable reports are then published to your own S3 Bucket.
This is not a static analysis of IAM policy or summary of yesterday’s CloudTrail events. (k9 reports what IAM users and roles could do with AWS APIs and data.)
Pivot, filter, slice, and dice with tools and data you already use.
Use the Excel format (sample) for quick, interactive analysis.
Review your admins, when they were last used, and their credentials:
Know exactly who has access to critical data and encryption keys:
Scale Access Management
Streamlined method for finding and fixing excess AWS IAM permissions.
Fewer security policy and automation modifications are required to provision a principal’s access to data resources.
Applicable to 10’s of teams and 100’s of resources.
Pre-built dashboards for Splunk and DataDog.
We wanted to create a truly secure production environment for our customers and prove it with a SOC 2 certification. k9 Security walked us through all the IAM vulnerabilities in our AWS account using their super pragmatic report and helped us fix the issues. Now we have SOC 2 and least privilege!
The quality and depth of expertise demonstrated by k9 Security is unparalleled in the industry. k9 has helped advise our AWS IAM strategy and guide a successful implementation of secure identity management that eliminates excess IAM permissions.
k9 is a great tool for consultants offering AWS security reviews. Will definitely use this tool when doing the next review of an AWS account. k9 is a great tool for Cloud Security Specialists raising the bar for security within their organization.
“Do you deal with IAM regularly but still not properly understand it? If so, I highly recommend you check out Effective IAM for AWS. Since I read it, I have a much clearer mental model on how to best define principals and policies for both security and maintainability.”
