Monitor your cloud administrators and managed service operators – avoid privilege abuse and fraud
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, April 14, 2015 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Both the use of cloud services and outsourcing services to MSPs (Managed Service Providers) are on the rise. Managing cloud services or opening on-premise, hybrid, and external services for management by external operators requires the ability for controlling access, particularly privileged operator and administrator access, to these services. Who can manage your cloud services, particularly the ones that offer just one shared administrative account? And who controls the access of external operators to your services?
Putting in a privilege management layer that manages access to shared accounts and monitors the privileged user – i.e. operator and administrator – behaviour helps mitigating risks. This works for both outbound access to cloud services by internal users and inbound access to applications and services that are managed by external suppliers.

In the era when data has replaced oil as the most valuable commodity, APIs have become an important logistical foundation of modern digital business. As a result, APIs have also become a popular target for cyber attackers, and therefore effective API security is essential. However, focusing only on the operational aspects is no longer enough.
