Chennai: As per a recent survey, over-permissioned accounts and roles is the top-cited cloud service misconfiguration detected and overly permissive privileges is the most commonly cited type of cybersecurity attack against cloud applications and services experienced over the last 12 months.
As organisations rapidly scale cloud deployments and adopt advanced services to digitally transform their business, the creation of human, application and machine identities is accelerating.
Access permissions for these identities are often granted by default, based on group or role, and can go unused or have more entitlements than they actually need.
CyberArk has announced CyberArk Cloud Entitlements Manager, which is being claimed as the industry’s first privilege-based, artificial intelligence-powered service designed to strengthen the security of cloud environments.
CyberArk said through continuous monitoring of cloud access, it enforces least privilege by identifying and removing excessive cloud permissions that can leave organizations vulnerable – significantly reducing risk and improving overall visibility and security.
