We’re building smallstep so development teams can focus on what they do best, all while operating in alignment with organization-wide goals and policies.
Smallstep is a purpose-built language and tooling that integrates with existing infrastructure and code to decouple cross-cutting concerns like security and compliance. We like to think of it as velcro for distributed services.
