Database Access

  • Available for:
  • OpenSource
  • Team
  • Cloud
  • Enterprise

Teleport can provide secure connections to your databases while improving both access control and visibility.

Some of the things you can do with database access:

  • Configure role-based access controls for databases and implement custom Access Request workflows.
  • Capture database activity in the Teleport audit log.
