Together Asaf Cohen and Or Weis co-founded Permit.io, a full-stack authorization framework that enables developers to quickly integrate access control into cloud-native applications.

Asaf was a former software engineer at Facebook and Microsoft while Or Weis was a former co-founder and CEO of Rookout.

Permit.io simplifies access control for developers with low code. They've received over $6 million in seed funding.
