Secure Entitlements and Permissions to Public Cloud Infrastructure and Services with Cloud Identity and Entitlements

Reduce the risk of breaches by ensuring least-privilege access to cloud resources, for users, applications and machines, with access policies recommended by machine-learning.

Excessive entitlements in public cloud: A growing risk

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

As public cloud adoption continues to accelerate, so does the risk of excessive permissions and access to critical cloud resources. Managing excessive permissions risk remains a significant challenge for many organizations due to rampant misconfigurations and common provisioning practices that assign default permissions. Excessive permissions pose a major risk in the wrong hands.

While Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools handle cloud service misconfigurations, a complementary solution—Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)—is needed to address the emerging risks of excessive entitlements that overexpose data and increase the attack surface.

Why the permissions gap is growing

DevOps speed and agility

DevOps speed and agility

The rise of DevOps means your cloud may see thousands of permission changes per day and tens of millions overall.
Non-human dominance

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.
Security tools

Missing security tools

Traditionally identity governance, privileged access management, (PAM) and native cloud platform tools are inadequate when detecting and remediating risk associated with cloud IAM configuration.

Diverse IAM model

Diverse IAM model

Each cloud provider offers a different set of IAM services with proprietary access management models, which makes managing permissions very complex.

Cloud Identity and Entitlements (CIEM)

Permissions security for a DevOps-driven world

Achieve full governance over access across all your clouds, resources, identities, and APIs. Security teams get a 360° view of all permissions, with the ability to automatically find misconfigurations—all from a single unified platform—with zero disruption to DevOps teams. Cloud Identity and Entitlements is part of the comprehensive, fully cloud-delivered Zscaler Cloud Protection solution.

What can Cloud Identity and Entitlements Security (CIEM) do for you?

Get blast radius analysis using a deep identity-centric view of all access paths to cloud assets
Prioritize IAM security actions using deep analysis of all access exposures of sensitive resources
Right-size privileges and minimize the attack surface by detecting over-privileged identities and risky access paths to sensitive resource
Harden your IAM configuration by cleaning up best-practice violations

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.
