Infinite Technology ∞ Ascend 🚀

In short

Ascend is a SECaaS (Security as a Service) platform focused on Web Access Control.

Ascend quickly integrates into your ecosystem and allows to:

  • Configure user permissions and the needed authorizations - through a centralized permission management portal
  • Authenticate users on your behalf - using a wide selection of authentication providers such as Facebook OAuth2
  • Authorize user access to your resources (REST or any other Web API)

Planned launch: 2020 Q1.

Pricing

Both rules below apply at the same time.

Per granted authorization

When user enters their credentials - they are authenticated and the Access Authorization is granted.

Monthly:

  • 0-5000 successfully granted authorizations - free
  • Each extra: $0.01 per each successful authorization grant

Per validated authorization

When user tries to access your secured resource, Ascend will validate their Access Authorization.

Monthly:

  • 0-10000 successful authorization validations - free
  • Each extra: $0.001 per each successful authorization validation

Features

Ascend is a revolutionary Web Security framework, built on top of JWT specifications.

Ascend JWT represents an ACID-compliant Authorization transaction, containing sufficient information for validation of an HTTP request.

  • Authorization Granting Server
    • App2app authentication
    • User2app authentication
