AWS Identity and Access Management— without the burden of effort

Securely manage access to Stax and AWS with speed.

Manage user access everywhere that matters

Easily balance team collaboration while adhering to essential security standards. Stax offers a convenient method for ensuring team members can only access the AWS accounts and Stax actions they require. Manage from a central location to keep access under control, and ensure there’s a record with full authentication logging enabled by default.

Log in via Stax or bring your existing identity provider

Stax streamlines access by accommodating the IAM provider you already use. While your team can log in to the Stax console and access the API directly, the platform supports federated logins using your existing SAML or OIDC-compliant IAM provider. Keep things simple for your users, and more secure for your organization.

Easily assign user roles and permissions

By collecting multiple Stax users into User Groups, you can configure their AWS permissions simultaneously. This enables flexible, fine-grained permissions control that can closely align with business functions. Users can sign in to AWS accounts via the Stax Console using roles assigned to them by their administrator.

FAQs

What is AWS Identity and Access Management?

AWS Identity and Access Management is a feature that comes as standard with all AWS accounts. It is designed to provide you with a fine level of control over the resources and services that individual users and user groups are able to access. You can use it to grant access to different AWS accounts and to manage the permissions that are assigned to each account. With advanced Identity and Access Management, AWS also gives you the ability to control access to specific service APIs and resources using configurable AWS IAM policies.

How can Stax help with AWS identity and access management?

Stax makes it easy for you to control all Stax and AWS access management settings from one central interface. With detailed authentication logs maintained by default, you can easily monitor all user login activity with our AWS-native Cloud Management Platform. Stax also supports federated logins using your existing IAM provider, simplifying the task of setting up and configuring the AWS Identity and Access Management service. For companies that are in the process of migrating to an AWS Cloud environment, the ability to use an existing IAM provider can save a considerable amount of time and expense.

What are the key features of Stax’s Identity and Access Management service?

Stax’s Identity and Access Management service has a number of key features that make it easy to use and configure, and very secure too:

  • Hosted in the Stax Security account — Because the Stax and AWS Identity Service is hosted in the default Stax Security account, it can only be accessed by authorized administrators who have access to this account.
  • Full authentication logging — Keep track of all login attempts with detailed authentication logging, which is enabled by default when you start using Stax.
  • Central control — Manage AWS account access and permissions for individual APIs/services from one intuitive interface.
  • Support for federated logins — If you wish to continue using an existing identity and access management provider, you can do so easily with the support for federated logins that Stax provides.
  • User groups — Users can be organized into groups, enabling you to quickly assign permissions to multiple individuals.

Every aspect of the Stax IAM tool has been designed with security and ease of use in mind.
