Teleport Introduces Secure Database in Multi-Cloud Environments

Teleport, a provider of software for environment-free computing, has announced that Teleport 6.0—introducing Teleport Database Access—is now available. The newest features included in Teleport 6.0 were designed to provide PostgreSQL and MySQL users with convenient access to databases running on private networks, while preventing data exfiltration, and enabling compliance enforcement and visibility into access and behavior.

Developers will find added support for PostgreSQL and MySQL wire protocols through Teleport 6.0 with the following features:

  • Authenticate with their identities via single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor.
  • List and see all database instances running somewhere behind NAT.
  • Get instant access to them using CLI tools like psql, mysql or Web UIs.
  • Have all user activity logged in a centralized audit log.
  • Request on-demand privilege escalation via access workflows.
  • Enforce compliance with automatic session controls, and end-to-end encryption. 

These new features address major pain points developers experience across industries, particularly now in light of shifts to work-from-home environments. 

Since its inception in 2015, Teleport has ensured industry best practices for consolidated management of access requests, role-based access controls, preventing data exfiltration, implementing compliance, visibility into user behavior and audit. This applies to all levels of an organization, regardless of where PostgreSQL instances are running: an AWS/Google/Azure VPC, owned data centers, or autonomous drones in the sky. 

Teleport 6.0 users have the ability to access various computing resources on public and private clouds, behind NAT, such as:

  • SSH servers
  • PostgreSQL and MySQL databases 
  • Kubernetes clusters
  • Internal web apps

“Engineers who use Teleport to securely access SSH servers and Kubernetes clusters will discover that their command-line tools to access MySQL and PostgreSQL gain superpowers when they upgrade to 6.0,” said Ev Kontsevoy, CEO of Teleport.

Teleport 6.0 can now be purchased through directly on the Teleport website, available  for users operating on the cloud or on-premise. To learn more, go to
