Article Summary

Wasabi Account Control Manager (WACM) is a hosted platform to centrally manage Wasabi cloud storage accounts in a multi-tiered environment.


WACM harnesses the power of the Wasabi Account Control API and presents it as an easy-to-use graphical user interface. This solution can cut your Wasabi implementation time down to minutes instead of days because users are up and running faster with less backend complexity.
