Why ScaleFT

ScaleFT was implemented to protect privileged user access to all of Jungle Disk's service platform systems that Jungle Disk customers rely on to protect their data. ScaleFT integrates with Jungle Disk's existing tools to provide Role-Based Access Control using time-limited credentials with a default-deny posture.

The Architectural Details

ScaleFT integrates with Jungle Disk's corporate Identity Provider using OpenID Connect, securely bridging the company's source of truth about employees to Jungle Disk’s cloud infrastructure.

The Jungle Disk DevOps team uses Ansible to manage cloud infrastructure. ScaleFT's time-limited and role-based credentials work with Ansible by providing cryptographic certificates to SSH.

ScaleFT was deployed as a unified authentication method to all of Jungle Disk's existing multiprovider infrastructure without downtime or disruption to users.

Jungle Disk + ScaleFT

Jungle Disk's strategy of enabling customers to survive a major data loss event by delivering a simple secure backup service backed by expert customer support is dependant on secure, reliable infrastructure. ScaleFT's authentication architecture was the natural choice to protect Jungle Disk's infrastructure and customers.
