Going on a Powertrip

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.
