Teleport, provider of identity-native infrastructure access management, today announced the release of its latest version of the Teleport Access Platform, Teleport 13. This release is geared at improving security and reducing operational overhead for DevOps teams that are responsible for securing cloud infrastructure.
Teleport 13 also provides a new Teleport Team plan for companies who are looking for heightened access management capabilities while minimizing the amount of overhead that comes with them.
The company stated that this solution is intended for users who like using the Teleport Open Source edition, but do not want to host it themselves.
“While our Open Source edition already gives identity-native based access control for people, machines, and applications. But many of our open source users did not want to host Teleport themselves, and our full enterprise cloud-hosted solution was too expensive for them,” said Ev Kontsevoy, co-founder and CEO of Teleport. “With Teleport 13, we are providing organizations with a fully managed system hosted by us, significantly improving DevOps productivity and eliminating unnecessary overhead of managing infrastructure access. Now, DevOps teams have a more affordable option that allows them to focus on higher-priority activities instead of being bogged down with manual work such as patching vulnerabilities themselves.”
A key aspect of version 13 is the ability to create a singular entry point to act as a proxy that is able to speak all network protocols, reducing the attack surface and making remote access management easier.
This release rids users of the need for manual vulnerability patching. Version 13 brings regular vulnerability testing as well as self-updating and patching across the infrastructure, a single network address that provides users with multiprotocol access, and the ability to import applications and groups from Okta Application Access and AWS OpenSearch support for Database Access.
