Extending intelligent privilege controls to cloud

Securing identities in the cloud brings along a host of unique challenges.

Increased attack surface

Compatibility accommodations for lift and shift migrations plus maintaining the hundreds of services offered by cloud service providers now require a greater variety of roles, entitlements, identities and credentials. This has increased complexity and a need for governance.

Managing risk while maintaining velocity

Elevating the right access, at the right time, with the right entitlements, without delay is required to securely deliver software on time.

Entitlements sprawl

Every relationship between components deployed within the cloud is controlled by entitlements mapped to roles. These entitlements and roles vary greatly across cloud providers representing a massive challenge for anyone implementing the principle of least privilege.


These identity blind spots can cause big risks. In fact, the NSA suggests that misconfigurations are the most common and easiest entry point into a cloud for an attacker.

Three stages of successful cloud identity security

Tackle cloud security problems one stage at a time to secure your cloud estate.

Meet baseline requirements

By securing access to the cloud, you can immediately reduce cyber risk while maintaining velocity. Enable just in time access with zero standing privileges. Centrally manage your access policies across your multi-cloud estate. Address critical identity misconfigurations.

Standardize audit and reporting

Bring your roles and entitlements into compliance by implementing least privilege. Then, once secure access policies are in place, maintain realistic and sustainable standards to satisfy audit and compliance.

Continuous improvement

With immediate risk reduction measures in place, the third phase is a proactive approach to security. Incorporate identity security hygiene into the Cloud provisioning process itself with automated workflows.
