OPA is an excellent open source tool for the policy as a code approach. It’s easy to see why the OPA framework has become so popular over the past couple of years.
But when it comes to managing policies, OPA on its own comes up short. It does nothing to help businesses keep track of their policies, make sure policies align with business needs and keep policies up-to-date.
OPA alone may be sufficient for small teams that are building just a single app and deploying it in a simple hosting environment. But for businesses that operate on any level of scale, and whose IT environments and PBAC controls needs are not trivially simple, OPA on its own doesn’t deliver the manageability and business alignment that drive success.
PlainID solves these challenges by making it possible to plan, validate, deploy and monitor policies on an ongoing basis, while also updating them seamlessly whenever business needs change. With PlainID, your business can fully embrace OPA, without the risks and inefficiencies that come with relying on OPA in its raw form.
