Protect every part of your business

Make sure you safeguard your company, your team, your customers and your customer’s online presence.

The first line of defence

The most effective way to protect your data and eliminate threats is through a strong and robust access policy. Your team and customers can’t accidentally compromise data that they don’t have access to in the first place.

Roles before permissions

Controlling who can access which individual pieces of data and interface is critical to protecting your business and your customers. Hierarchical role-based access control (RBAC) allows for strict control and flexible assignment – aligning everything from your business view of the worldright down to the code you ship to customers.

RBAC reduces the risk of unauthorized access by up to 92%2

Organizations that implemented RBAC saved an average of $1.8m3

The triple threat against any threat

Layering on access control at every stage of the product cycle means layering on protection across the board without having to think about it. Kinde helps you build organizational best practice without any additional effort.

  • Organizations

    Organizations provide an extra layer of protection and data isolation for any B2B business. User data is automatically siloed to its organization. Each organization has its own separate configuration which makes it easier to separate everything from branding to org credentials.

  • Feature flags

    Empower your developers to deploy to production whenever they need to, without having to worry about things going public by mistake. This means your team decides when things go live and when data is accessible, even when code is in production.
