How teams use Pomerium

Learn how teams like yours use Pomerium.


Pomerium brings a single workflow for context-based access across apps, servers, Kubernetes clusters, clouds, and on-prem infrastructure.

Easier to deploy, and manage.

Unlike traditional approaches like VPNs, Pomerium is far easier to manage and does not require constant adjustment of firewalls and other networking tools.

Centralized access and visibility.

Pomerium enterprise provides a centralized console which provides app-level controls to manage and monitor who can access what.

Works with everything, anywhere.

Whether it’s a legacy app on bare metal that no one has touched for years, or a sleek new CNCF app deployed on the latest-greatest-service mesh, Pomerium has you covered. And not in a hand-wavy way, either. Pomerium can be deployed using containers, binaries, or system packages, right there with your apps at edge.

Enables collaboration & self-service.

Pomerium allows application owners to self-provision and manage resources while ensuring that organization and enterprise-wide security policies are still enforced.


Pomerium frees developers up to focus on their apps, not reinventing access control.

Move fast.

Pomerium brings centralized authentication and authorization to any internal app without requiring any code changes.

Without breaking things.

“I can’t wait to integrate OAuth2 into our app!” is not something you are likely to hear from developers for good reason. Authentication and authorization are devilishly tricky to get right, and when misconfigured, can have disastrous results.

Identity, and context without headaches.

Pomerium can be configured to pass a rich, cryptographically signed JWT to upstream applications where a user’s identity and context details can be used for even more fine-grained access control.

IT Management

Pomerium provides a simple, secure access service edge (SASE), without giving up control over your data or cloud lock-in.

Improve security.

Unrestricted lateral network access by unauthorized users remains the biggest attack surface. Pomerium mitigates risk by helping enterprises adopt a zero trust, context-driven security model.

Ensure governance & compliance.

Pomerium Enterprise supports the tooling enterprises need to tackle the collaboration and governance challenges that arise as organizations start to scale, including detailed audit logs, namespace-based self-service, and access controls.

Not rip and replace.

We realize the real world is messy, and better security is a process. Pomerium can be deployed alongside your existing perimeter-based security infrastructure.

End Users

Delight your end users with an experience that works anywhere they choose to work, free from the hassle of corporate VPNs.

Better user experience.

Pomerium is completely transparent to users. There’s nothing to install, upgrade, or onboard. Pomerium just works.


Unlike with a VPN, there’s no need for backhauling or split tunneling so everything stays snappy, without intermittent connection drops.

Retain and attract top talent.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic changed how the world does business, it’s become increasingly important for employees to have an equivalent user-experience, whether they are remote or in the office. Stop frustrating your best employees with the headaches of a second-class remote work experience.
