To learn more on how to reduce risk in the cloud, request a personalized demo of PowerBroker Password Safe.Built-in controls lack user activity monitoring Some cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services, have granular built-in identity and access management controls to provide role-based separation of administrative control. This allows users to log in with a specific scope across a range of systems. However, cloud services don’t tell you exactly what the users were doing when they were logged on to the session. The situation is compounded if identities are shared, because identifying which user was actually logged on when activity occurred can be extremely difficult. Shared account passwords are weak and uncontrolled Shared accounts present an even greater risk when users leave the organization. Take this example: an ESX admin with shared root credentials to a server needs to be inside the corporate firewall in order to access the vSphere administrative interface. A Microsoft Azure admin, by comparison, can generally access the Azure Management Console from anywhere – all that’s needed is a valid set of credentials, and a window of opportunity. These credentials may potentially control hundreds (or even tens of thousands) of virtual hosts.
