Secure Entitlements and Permissions to Public Cloud Infrastructure and Services with Cloud Identity and Entitlements
Reduce the risk of breaches by ensuring least-privilege access to cloud resources, for users, applications and machines, with access policies recommended by machine-learning.
Excessive entitlements in public cloud: A growing risk
According to Gartner, by 2023, 75 percent of cloud security failures will result from inadequate identity management, access, and privileges.
As public cloud adoption continues to accelerate, so does the risk of excessive permissions and access to critical cloud resources. Managing excessive permissions risk remains a significant challenge for many organizations due to rampant misconfigurations and common provisioning practices that assign default permissions. Excessive permissions pose a major risk in the wrong hands.
While Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools handle cloud service misconfigurations, a complementary solution—Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)—is needed to address the emerging risks of excessive entitlements that overexpose data and increase the attack surface.
Why the permissions gap is growing
DevOps speed and agility
The rise of DevOps means your cloud may see thousands of permission changes per day and tens of millions overall.
Over 50 percent of cloud entitlements are granted to applications, machines, and service accounts. Users and roles are only a small part of the problem.
Missing security tools
Traditionally identity governance, privileged access management, (PAM) and native cloud platform tools are inadequate when detecting and remediating risk associated with cloud IAM configuration.
Diverse IAM model
Each cloud provider offers a different set of IAM services with proprietary access management models, which makes managing permissions very complex.
Cloud Identity and Entitlements (CIEM)
Permissions security for a DevOps-driven world
Achieve full governance over access across all your clouds, resources, identities, and APIs. Security teams get a 360° view of all permissions, with the ability to automatically find misconfigurations—all from a single unified platform—with zero disruption to DevOps teams.
