Permit.io Helps Developers Understand
Its Authorization Solution Using Wilco

The Partner


Permit.io is a full-stack permissions service that has devoted its efforts to solving the common problem of building authorization and access for cloud applications. . It provides a full-stack authorization powered by open-source and low-code interfaces, enabling developers to never have to build permissions again, while empowering all the other stakeholders (e.g. product, security) to participate in managing access.. Permit.io launched out of stealth earlier this year with $6 Million in seed funding from NFX, Rainfall Ventures, and a number of notable angel investors.


Build Authorization into a Product

Access control is an important part of developing modern cloud applications.
The Vast majority of data breaches are caused by improper authorization, both across public cloud services and in the private cloud. One of the reasons for this is the difficulty in access control implementation. Permit.io, which simplifies building authorization into a product, needed a way to convey to developers just how easy it is to do correctly with the right tools.

The Solution

Wilco’s Quest Builder for Demoing Dev Tools

Using Wilco, Permit.io was able to:

Demonstrate the ease of their authorization product. Developers who don’t come from a security background often don’t understand how easy it can be to secure their system by implementing granular access control. With Wilco, they can see the simplicity of Permit.io themselves.

Create an interactive product demo experience. For prospective clients, the Permit.io Wilco quest enables them to experience the system risk-free without having to integrate it into their product.

Increase their brand equity by showcasing best practices. Community members can use the Permit.io Wilco quest to understand how access to a web-based product should be controlled to create a strong security posture.

The Results

Scope Expansion: More Quests Are on the Way!
