• New solution centralizes visualization and management of permissions and entitlements across multiple cloud platforms, enabling IT to mitigate permissions creep.
  • The easy-to-deploy, scalable, zero-footprint solution deploys in under an hour, accelerating time-to-value.

Atlanta, GA – December 2, 2021 - BeyondTrust, the worldwide leader in Privileged Access Management, today announced the release of Cloud Privilege Broker, its new entitlements and permissions management solution that enables organizations to visualize and manage access risk across multi-cloud environments from a single interface. The boom in cloud adoption and acceleration of digital transformation projects have skyrocketed entitlements and identities in cloud environments, resulting in excessive permissions that have become primary attack vectors, which must be managed and secure.

Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, have their own identity and access management tools with unique language and security responsibility models. These tools are designed only for their own environments which means managing permissions across multiple clouds requires a ‘swivel chair’ approach from console to console. This siloed approach is inefficient, it increases the risk of a breach and amplifies the costs for non-compliance.

BeyondTrust Cloud Privilege Broker gives IT and Security teams immediate visibility of cloud permissions and entitlements with the discovery of users, roles, and policies, across multiple platforms, in a single console. As a cloud-hosted SaaS offering, the solution can be deployed in less than an hour, which means classification of risk can be achieved in hours. Cloud Privilege Broker then prioritizes a list of critical items and provides guided remediation across different platforms, dramatically increasing your cloud security posture.

“The boom in digital transformation projects has accelerated the adoption of cloud technologies,” said Tim Sedlack, Sr. Director Product Management at BeyondTrust. “With this trend, we’ve seen an explosion of very complex permission and entitlement schemes across clouds, which have proven to be formidable to manage, adversely impacting teams across IT and Security. BeyondTrust Cloud Privilege Broker has been built from the ground up to help these teams visualize and mitigate the growing risk of cloud permission sprawl and help organizations regain control over their critical cloud infrastructure.”

Cloud Privilege Broker is deployed on the BeyondInsight platform, providing a familiar user interface and experience for BeyondTrust customers. The solution enables organizations to:

  • Gain immediate visibility over permissions and entitlements across multi-cloud infrastructure.
  • Rapidly identify risk associated with overly-permissioned users.
  • Simplify management of entitlements by providing granular recommendations for implementing policy across cloud platforms, from a single interface.
  • Mitigate privilege creep by continually right-sizing and exposing excessive permissions.
  • Detect anomalies within account entitlements, providing remediation and enforcement of least privilege.
  • Help security and audit teams meet and prove compliance with audit trails.

With Cloud Privilege Broker, you have centralized, efficient and granular management of thousands of cloud permissions and entitlements that put teams back in control of their critical infrastructure, significantly reducing the risk of a data breach. Cloud Privilege Broker is built on a modern cloud technology platform that leverages a microservices architecture, enabling built-in scalability and resilience that helps future-proof technology investments.
