As digital business pushes organizations towards an accelerated multi-cloud adoption, CIEM (Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management) emerges as a strong enabler for securing access and entitlements across an increasingly distributed cloud environment. Traditional PAM and IGA tools aren't natively designed to manage cloud infrastructure entitlements and therefore can't be easily re-purposed to discover and remediate excessive cloud permissions across multiple IaaS and PaaS platforms. The confusion arising from un-identically structured CSPs and misaligned cloud terminology is further aggravated by the quest of IAM, PAM and Cloud Security providers to enter CIEM space and capture market share.
In this session, we will focus on how the CIEM market has been evolving over the last few years to manage the critical cloud security gaps left unaddressed by CSPM (Cloud Security Posture Management) and CWP (Cloud Workload Protection) tools, and how CIEM complements these tools to offer a wholistic cloud security advantage. We will also discuss how CIEM addresses some of the most critical security tenets of your organization's cloud adoption program and future planning.
As for the key takeaways of this session, you will be able to understand and articulate:
With a highly prioritized digital tranfsformation towards a composable enterprise, it will be inevitable to work with multi-cloud solutions to achieve the level of agility and flexibility required. If it was to avoid vendor lock-in or to consequently go for best-of-breed solutions - in this cloud expert panel we will discuss approaches to manage multi-clouds efficently and to avaid increased complexity.
Performing accidentally wrong or intentionally bad configuration changes by administrators, scripts or systems can lead to serious security vulnerabilities or unintentional visibility or leakage of data. This applies to on-premises systems, but especially to systems and applications in cloud environments.
With a comprehensive change auditing and reporting in hybrid environments, such critical changes and conditions can be quickly identified and remediated.
This session will deal with this topic in general and with a solution approach in particular.
