What is Just in Time Access?

JIT (Just-In-Time) Access, in the context of network security, is a method that grants temporary, time-bound network access to certain users on an as-needed basis. It is designed to restrict specific resources to authorized users for a limited period of time, reducing the opportunity for misuse or data breaches. The key benefit of using JIT is that it minimizes the risk of attacks by limiting access to the lowest possible levels and shortest possible times.

Benefits of Just in Time Access to


1. Enhanced Least Privilege Access: Leveraging just in time access and privilege escalation in Appenate permits precise control over access rights, ensuring users can access only what they need, when they need it. This effectively limits exposure to sensitive data, thereby complying with the industry’s least privilege principle.

2. Reduced Insider Threats and Human Errors: By minimising the number of permanent high-level permissions, Appenate's just in time access technique decreases the risk of accidental data leaks or intentional insider threats. Access can be granted instantly when needed and revoked immediately after, thereby protecting crucial data and applications.

3. Improved Operational Efficiency: Just in time access and privilege escalation in Appenate allows teams to speed up workflows. Temporary and automatic access permissions eliminate the need for manual intervention, reducing administrative overhead and allowing for more agile operations.

4. Easier Auditing for Compliance: Appenate's just-in-time approach makes auditing simpler, as it records user activities for each unique permission request, with the clear details of when the user received the permissions, what tasks were performed and when it was revoked. This supports a transparent, streamlined auditing process to help companies meet strict regulatory compliance standards.

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to


1. Issue-Resolution: When a critical issue or bug arises within the system that requires immediate attention, just in time admin access can be used to quickly grant permissions to the needed expert or developer to address the problem.

2. Emergency Changes: In the event of an unforeseen emergency, such as a security breach or a major system failure, just in time admin access can temporarily grant necessary permissions to those who can mitigate the crisis.

3. Onboarding and Training: When a new employee or team member is being onboarded or trained, just in time admin access can be used to provide temporary access, allowing them to experiment with the system under supervision, and the access can be revoked as soon as the training is finished.

How to Implement Just in Time Access to

1. Planning.

  • Assessment
    Begin by mapping out who will need access to Appenate, the resources they require, and why. Evaluate existing access rights to see if they can be reduced or removed completely. It can be beneficial to use an entitlement discovery tool for greater visibility.
  • Policy formulation
    Establish precise policies for both the granting and rejection of access. Offer guidelines on who can request access and the circumstances and duration under which they can do so. For particularly privileged roles, define time-bound parameters.
  • Source of credibility
    Synchronize your JIT access system with an Identity Provider (such as Okta, Google Workspace, Azure AD, or OneLogin). This will act as the official source for identities. Opt for de/escalating individual identities over shared accounts for improved authorization control and audit accuracy.

2. Execution.

  • Self-serve access applications
    Make the process smoother by having users request access directly through the system, instead of directly through people. Boost adoption by integrating with IM platforms like Slack or MS Teams. Ensure requests detail who's asking, the required service/resource/role, timing, and purpose.
  • Approval procedure
    JIT access allows business entities to delegate approvals to individuals who have a better understanding of the business context, such as resource owners or business unit managers. Using messaging platforms can expedite responses while providing approvers with all necessary information so decisions can be made responsibly.
  • Conditional approval workflows
    Integrate your preset policies into workflows, which help determine access permissions. These policies should outline who can access what and under which conditions. A highly effective way to facilitate this is by allocating if-then conditions. If identity group "X" requests access to "Y", seek approval from "Z" and notify "M".
  • Integrations
    Consider integrating JITA with other IT/security systems for increased flexibility; Integrate with IT ticketing systems for access automation based on ticket statuses. Integrate with data classification to update policies based on data sensitivity. In an ideal world, you should have the capability to label resources and package them together to make this process simpler. You should also work with on-call schedule software for automated approvals during emergencies. Use educational systems to approve access based on training completion.
  • Automated provisioning and deprovisioning
    Learn about Appenate in depth to effectively automate granting and revoking fine-grained access to the service. This is crucial for JIT Access as it reduces the dependence on individuals being available. It enables automated revocation of access which is at the core of JIT Access and the principle of least privilege access (POLP). In an ideal world, you would manage all permissions in one place, without having to construct or manage an environment for every single application in your organization.
  • Access methods
    For Appenate, APIs are desired for their flexible and real-time abilities but a combination may be necessary. As an instance, use SAML for authentication, SCIM for user provisioning, and APIs for precise access control decisions.

3. Maintenance.

  • Regular audits
    Frequently inspect access logs to make sure JIT access is being used effectively. Monitor for any unusual patterns or behaviours straight away or by integrating the logs into your SIEM. You can speed up the user access review process by utilizing an automated system to collect evidence, delegate reviewers, and ensure your system is compliant with pertinent industry regulations or standards.
  • User Training
    Teach all users, especially privileged ones, about the importance of least privilege and JIT access and how these work. Make certain users understand how to apply for access when required.
  • Feedback loop
    Consistently review your JIT access operations. Solicit feedback from users and IT personnel to identify where enhancements can be implemented.

By adopting this structured approach, a sturdy Just-In-Time Access system for Appenate can be proficiently implemented.
