Going on a Powertrip

Ashley Mathew
October 2, 2020

If you have a product and customers, then you also have members of your team who need access to critical systems in order for your company to function. Safeguarding credentials that can access these systems via mechanisms like 2FA, U2F, and key rotation is necessary but not sufficient. You must also monitor for key security events and review each to ensure your protections are working as intended.

Here at Aptible, we’ve solved the problem of monitoring and requesting approval for security events via a lightweight Slack integration we built called Powertrip. With Powertrip, we are able to send Slack notifications to relevant team members about key security events within minutes of the event happening.

Let’s say you’ve created a SaaS application that lets customers keep track of their vendors. Things are going well and you’re adding many customers. One day, a curious customer starts messing around with the IDs in URLs and stumbles across a vendor they shouldn’t have access to. This is Very Bad™, especially if your customers are relying on your application to store sensitive information!
