Saving Developers the Headache of Building Permissions

Today, we’re thrilled to bring you an insightful interview with Or Weis, Co-Founder&CEO at, a leading expert in the security and permissions field.

Permission management is a critical aspect of software development that has been around for decades. Every time a new product is created, the process of building and managing user permissions from scratch takes up valuable time and resources that you could spend on developing the core product. However, despite its importance, it has always been a source of frustration for developers and businesses alike.

Watch&Listen to the full interview here.

Enter Permit, a new player in the world of permissions management that is aiming to change the game. Permit aims to take permissions off the table, freeing up developers to focus on building their core product. According to the founder of Permit, “you should never have to build permissions again.”

So, what exactly is Permit, and what problems is it trying to solve? In a nutshell, Permit is a micro-service for authorization that provides developers with the infrastructure components, APIs, and SDKs they need to embed permissions easily into their software. More importantly, it also provides low-code, no-code interfaces that allow developers to delegate control to other stakeholders, such as their customers.

Permit’s approach is driven by its founder’s experiences. Or Weis has had to build permissions management from scratch multiple times in the past, leading to a waste of valuable resources. “It’s a pain, frustration, and annoyance,” the founder says. “There were multiple times that I said, ‘This version of permissions is going to be the last one – I’m not going to touch them ever again.’ And then you get a slap in the face when a new requirement comes in.”

Recently, Permit introduced Permit Elements, a new feature that allows developers to offer their customers the ability to manage their permissions. Permit Elements are slim enough to be used independently of the whole Permit framework, providing a level of control for other stakeholders, even if the developers don’t want to delegate too much control. This way, developers can focus on building the core product while other stakeholders have control over the permissions.

In conclusion, Permit is a game-changer in the world of permissions management. By taking a new approach to the age-old problem of permissions management, Permit is making it easier and more efficient for developers to build and manage software. With its low-code, no-code interfaces, Permit Elements empowers other stakeholders to manage their permissions, freeing up developers to focus on building their core product.

According to a recent report by Gartner, the market for authorization and access management is expected to reach $3.5 billion by 2024, up from $2.7 billion in 2020. With its innovative approach to permissions management, Permit is well-positioned to take advantage of this growing market and make a real difference in the lives of developers and businesses alike.
