strongDM is a customer-first, second, and third company with a rabid fan base. When was the last time you heard things like:

* Splunk's CISO Joel Fulton says "strongDM gives you what you can’t get any other way -- the ability to see what happens, replay and analyze incidents."

* Chef's co-founder Adam Jacob says "strongDM takes the friction out of getting staff access to the systems they need."

Customers love us because:

The product rocks: strongDM fundamentally changes the relationship between InfoSec, DevOps, and end users. Enforce the controls security needs while making it easier to facilitate access.  

They can trust us: we built a technical product for technical buyers. We do not use jargon. There is no alternative but to always be technically accurate. We are not afraid to admit product gaps.
