Gravitational Rebrands as Teleport, Releases Platform to Consolidate Access, Audit, and Compliance Across All Environments

Gravitational, a pioneer in environment-free computing, is rebranding as Teleport, following the release of a new product—Teleport Unified Access Plane.


The decision to move forward with Teleport as the company’s namesake, also the name of its premier product, is deeply rooted in the company’s mission and long-term vision—to give engineers the freedom to do computing anywhere, in any environment and with total trust.

“The decision to formally change our name to Teleport supports the natural evolution that our company has followed from the point it was founded - to create software for engineers that allows them to quickly access any resource anywhere,” says Ev Kontsevoy, Teleport CEO and co-founder. “We are also excited to introduce Teleport Unified Access Plane. This new offering consolidates access controls and auditing across all environments - infrastructure, applications, and data without having to manage shared secrets, VPNs, or access points.”

Teleport Unified Access Plane solves a deficiency in alternative solutions by providing consolidated access to all computing resources such as servers, Kubernetes clusters, or internal applications across all environments and behind network address translation (NAT).

The solution, built by engineers for engineers, allows a quick and efficient method to:

  • Provide Secure Access to All Resources: Easily see which resources are accessible and securely connect, regardless of which NAT they are behind, using single-sign-on (SSO) and short-lived certificates.
  • Consolidate Access Across All Environments: Increase developer productivity by having instant access to any computing environment, on any cloud, on premise, or on the edge.
  • Get Complete Visibility Into Access and Behavior: See who is accessing which resource and what actions are taking place in all environments with automatic session recordings and audit logging.
  • Ensure Compliance with Security Standards: Easily retrofit existing applications and integrate custom applications to comply with security standards such as SOC2, PCI, and FEDRamp without modification.

The Teleport Unified Access Plane solution includes Teleport Server Access, Teleport Kubernetes Access and Teleport Application Access.
