“Open Policy Agent or OPA was designed to be a policy engine that enables users to have a unified solution to authorization and policies that are across that Cloud Native stack. That’s super important because when you start thinking about putting policies in place for different applications running in different clouds, or different platforms using different databases, different microservices built on different programming languages, what you really want to be able to do is have a single cogent way of solving that authorization problem of who (people) or what (machines) can perform which actions on that software. That’s why OPA is so powerful,” said Tim Hinrichs, Co-founder and CTO of Styra.
