NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–10KMedia, the boutique PR agency hyper-focused on developer tooling and shift-left security, today announces the addition of Permit.io to its roster of premier startups. Permit.io was founded by Or Weis, former CEO and Co-Founder of Rookout; and Asaf Cohen, former software engineer at Facebook and Microsoft. Permit.io provides an open-source based, full-stack authorization framework that makes it easy for developers to build security into their cloud-native applications.

“Shift-left security is both an exciting and obvious trend that will only continue to accelerate,” said Adam LaGreca, Founder of 10KMedia. “Giving developers the tooling to build secure applications without having to rely on external expertise – especially in the distributed work environments more and more companies are finding themselves in – will be one of the greatest contributors to developer productivity and velocity over the next few years.”

According to the latest research from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), broken access control presents the most serious web application security risk. Access control enforces policy that prevents users from acting outside of their intended permissions. Failures typically lead to unauthorized information disclosure, modification, destruction of data, or performing a business function outside the user’s limits. The report states that “94% of applications were tested for some form of broken access control.”

Permit.io provides all of the components and interfaces required for developers to build and implement full-stack authorization directly into products, including all of the elements required for enforcement, gating, log auditing, event streaming, impersonation, automating API keys and more. By creating a simple UI and intuitive experience, developers can build secure applications even if they don’t have authorization development experience.

“Authorization is the last link in the IAM chain and it’s the most critical one – it’s about time developers stopped building it from scratch,” said Or Weis, Co-Founder and CEO of Permit.io. “We are excited to work with 10KMedia to amplify our story as we help enable the next phase of connectivity in the cloud.”
