Implement Least Privilege to Reduce Risk with Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)

Manage cloud risk by identifying and minimizing excessive privileges in public cloud services

Zscaler-CIEM-Excessive-Entitlements

Excessive entitlements are a growing risk in the public cloud

According to Gartner, by 2023, 75% of cloud security failures will result from inadequate management of identity, access, and privileges.

As public cloud adoption accelerates, so does the risk of excessive permissions and access to critical cloud resources. For many organizations, managing this risk remains difficult due to established provisioning practices and a need to move quickly—both of which can result in default or overly broad permissions that can let your sensitive data fall into the wrong hands.

Cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM) addresses the emerging risks of excessive entitlements that overexpose data and increase the attack surface in a dynamic multicloud infrastructure. It provides deep visibility into cloud entitlements and access risks and enables your organization to adopt a least privilege strategy.

Why is the permissions gap growing?

Complex IAM models

In multicloud environments, each cloud provider offers a different set of IAM services with proprietary access management models, complicating the process of managing and defining permissions

Rise of machine identities

More than half of cloud entitlements are granted to ungoverned identities, such as machines and service accounts, that operate under the radar, leading to unique access issues

Traditional identity governance, privileged access management (PAM), and native cloud platform tools don't effectively detect or remediate the risks associated with cloud IAM configuration

Permissions security for a DevOps-driven world

An effective CIEM solution helps you achieve full access control across all your cloud environments, resources, identities, and APIs. Give your security teams a 360-degree view of all permissions and the ability to automatically identify misconfigurations with zero disruption to DevOps teams—all from one unified platform.

CIEM policies are natively built into Posture Control by Zscaler, a comprehensive cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) that secures cloud infrastructure, sensitive data, and native application deployments across your multicloud environments.

Comprehensive IAM risk posture visibility

AI- and ML-powered analytics help you manage the sheer volume of entitlements data. A risk-based view of both human and non-human identities allows you to easily identify excessive high-risk permissions and inspect cloud identity configurations.

Risk-based prioritization

Most security platforms generate far too many alerts to be actionable. Posture Control prioritizes your organization’s security risks based on your profile, allowing for maximal risk reduction with minimal effort.

Entitlement rightsizing

Posture Control uses machine learning, cohort analysis, and more to identify hidden, unused, and misconfigured permissions as well as risky access paths for sensitive resources unique to each cloud platform, which you can remove to minimize your attack surface and achieve least-privileged access.

Secure DevOps

Effective entitlement management in your DevOps processes means no more compromises on your security or your innovation. 

Zscaler-CIEM-IAM configuration

Consistent, compliant IAM configuration

By enforcing consistent policies and automated guardrails across multicloud environments and ensure IAM compliance with CIS, GDPR, SOC2, NIST, PCI DSS, ISO, and more, you gain powerful, granular control over access to your valuable assets.
