While organizations are continuing to ramp up their expansion into the cloud and execute on new use cases for cloud applications, their cloud identity governance and Privilege Access Management (PAM) controls are falling dangerously behind. Most cloud platforms provide basic identity and access management (IAM) controls, but addressing the gap in privileged access security controls is largely left to the cloud platform’s customers. Also, the elasticity of the cloud means that instances can be easily spun up and spun down, creating new accounts—with privileges—at massive scale. These privileges must all be managed for both the sake of security and compliance.
Join security expert, Dan Blum, in this webcast where he will highlight significant cloud identity and privilege gaps, and provide guidance on how to identify and close your own privileged security gaps in the cloud. You will also learn how to:
- Enable centralized identity governance in a hybrid, multi-cloud environment
- Dynamically provision cloud accounts and just-in-time (JIT) privileged access to IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS environments
- Unify cloud access governance for both user and service accounts by integrating with the DevOps pipeline
