About the Company: Co-founded by Or Weis, former CEO and Co-Founder of Rookout; and Asaf Cohen, former software engineer at Facebook and Microsoft. Permit.io provides a full-stack authorization framework to help other companies build permissions systems into their products. Permit.io is built on top of the open-source project OPAL, also created by Or Weis and Asaf Cohen, which acts as the administration layer for the popular Open Policy Agent (OPA). Permit empowers developers to bake in permissions and access-control into any product in minutes and takes away the pain of constantly rebuilding them.
