Why developers like strongDM?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose strongDM in their tech stack.
In a distributed world, auditing database access, credential management and rotation, and onboarding can be a nightmare. Someone running a query on a staging DB that’s taking down the test environment forever? Good luck hunting that down. Have a new engineer onboard and they need to run an audit query on the staging DB to see if their new code might break an old schema? Have fun configuring that. Need to run your periodic credential rotation, ...enjoy. This was not only a huge pain point for our team, but me personally, and then strongDM came into the picture.
strongDM acts as a control plane to manage access to every database and server. By centralizing all database credentials & ssh keys in strongDM, onboarding and offboarding becomes much faster.
I seriously cannot imagine working without strongDM now. It’s one of those tools that seamlessly fits into your workflow and you can’t envision work without it.
