About k9 Security


AWS Security is very powerful, but too difficult to use. That’s why we’re simplifying secure delivery with usable security policy automation and an insightful access audit service that works for Cloud Engineers and the rest of the team.


k9 Security’s mission is to help organizations using the Cloud to improve the security and manage risks to the organization and its customers.


We believe that the future of security is simple, integrated, and scaled across the entire technology team – and beyond. k9 Security helps teams using the cloud scale secure delivery and operations with simple and robust IAM security practices, integrated into their preferred workflows and tools. This enables the whole team to secure deployments. k9 simplifies understanding and working with cloud API and data access entitlements so domain experts can quickly identify and remediate risks.


k9 Security helps Cloud teams protect data in Amazon Web Services by helping them understand their risk position and improve their security policies.  Unlike many security tools, k9 puts actionable information in the hands of Cloud and DevOps engineers who build and maintain security policies.


k9 is built by people with deep DevOps and Security experience.
