AWS Verified Permissions release points towards the “Beyond IAM” era

What's this blog post about?

Amazon has introduced AWS Verified Permissions (AVP), an "authorization-as-a-service" offering designed to provide granular authorization control for applications deployed on the AWS platform. Built on the Cedar policy language, AVP reflects Amazon's recognition of the growing importance of granular authorization capabilities in modern apps. As more apps adopt granular authorization standards like AVP, organizations will need new and better ways to manage and optimize the millions of potential identity access decisions. Veza, an identity security platform, offers a solution by providing a unified human-readable language that translates system-specific permission jargon into terms that everyone can understand, as well as automated monitoring and remediation for excess privilege and misconfigurations.
