Ermetic Named in Gartner’s Managing Privileged Access in Cloud Infrastructure Report
Report predicts that “by 2023, 75% of security failures will result from inadequate management of identities, access, and privileges, up from 50% in 2020.”
PALO ALTO, Calif. & TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AWS—Ermetic, the cloud access risk security company, today announced it has been recognized as a Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management Vendor in the Gartner report Managing Privileged Access in Cloud Infrastructure1. Regarding Specialized Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management Tools, Gartner states “these tools are identity-centric and make the management of cloud infrastructure entitlements their primary focus.”
According to Gartner, “Protecting cloud infrastructure is crucial, especially with more workloads hosted across cloud service providers. Security and risk management technical professionals must deploy tools that enable effective management of cloud infrastructure entitlements and reduce risks caused by unintended access.”
“We are pleased that Gartner has named Ermetic within its Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management Vendor Landscape report,” said Shai Morag, CEO of Ermetic.
He added, “we agree with Gartner, which states in the report ‘the number of entitlements across cloud infrastructure is growing in size and complexity as more CSP offerings and services are added. It is impossible to keep pace with this change, and therefore manual methods for determining least-privilege access are not feasible nor scalable. To address this adequately, organizations need to have a more identity-centric view of their cloud infrastructure entitlements. Further, given that events can generate large amounts of data, an automated analytics and machine learning (ML) engine can aid in determining whether entitlements assigned are dormant or improperly used’.”
The Ermetic analytics-based solution prevents cloud data breaches by automating the detection and remediation of identity and access risks in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings from Amazon, Google and Microsoft. It automatically discovers all human and machine identities in the cloud, and analyzes their entitlements, roles and policies using a continuous lifecycle approach. By combining analytics with granular, full stack insight, Ermetic makes it possible to enforce least privilege access at scale even in the most complex cloud environments.
