Styra DAS Editions

Styra offers DAS FREE and DAS ENTERPRISE editions that each provide unified authorization, but for different size deployments and use cases.

  • DAS FREE is suited to create, deploy, and manage Rego authorization policies for OPA enforcement specific to Kubernetes, Terraform, and Service Meshes. Community support is included for this SaaS-delivered option.

  • DAS ENTERPRISE delivers everything organizations need to externalize authorization and use of OPA at scale. Multiple use cases, at scale, with full integration into Enterprise Role-based Access Control (RBAC) and Single sign-on (SSO). DAS Enterprise is available in self-hosted and SaaS options with enterprise support and corresponding Service-level Agreement (SLA) .
