Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management

Secure and control permissions across multicloud environments
while giving DevOps endless freedom to innovate.

Excessive entitlements in public cloud: A growing risk

According to Gartner, by 2023, 75 percent of cloud security failures will result from inadequate management of identities, access, and privileges. While Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools handle misconfigurations, a new solution is needed to address the emerging risks of excessive entitlements.

Why the permissions gap is growing


DevOps speed and agility

The rise of DevOps means your cloud may see thousands of permission changes per day, and tens of millions overall.
Security tools

Missing security tools

Identity governance and privileged access management (PAM) tools don’t address cloud risk, while third-party and cloud-native security tools overlook the permissions problem.

Non-human dominance

Over 50 percent of cloud entitlements are granted to applications, machines, and service accounts. Users and roles are only a small part of the problem.

What can Zscaler CIEM do for you?

Cloud permission governance

Cloud permission governance

Obtain full visibility into both human and non-human identities. Discovers who’s accessing what and how permissions are utilized.
Least-privileged configuration

Least-privileged configuration

ML-based models identify “safe-to-remove” unused, misconfigured, and default permissions, resulting in a simple, transparent permissions model.
Guardrail enforcement

Guardrail enforcement

Easily implement unified guardrail policies across cloud providers. Detect violations while allowing developers and DevOps to maintain their speed of innovation.

What makes Zscaler CIEM unique?

Safe to Remove” permissions policies
“Safe to Remove” permissions policies
An unused permission doesn’t mean that it can be removed without disruption. ML models, cohort analysis, and other techniques identify permissions that can be removed to minimize the attack surface without slowing innovation.
Clearly visualized permissions mapping
Clearly visualized permissions mapping
Zscaler CIEM maps all permissions visually, allowing you to see above the noise to quickly diagnose and understand how risks are escalating.
Risk-based prioritization
Risk-based prioritization
Most security platforms generate far too many alerts to be actionable. Zscaler CIEM prioritizes the most important permissions-based risks in your organization, allowing you to maximize risk reduction with minimal effort.
