PAM for the Cloud
Critical controls for modern cloud security
According to a 2021 IDC cloud security study, 98% of companies experienced at least one cloud data breach in the past 18 months—up from 79% in the previous period. Most cloud data breaches occur due to misuse or abuse of privileged credentials, often stemming from external actors, malicious insiders, or unintentional mistakes. Most cloud misconfigurations and inconsistent controls are due to customer oversight, not the cloud provider.
As your business becomes more reliant on the cloud for infrastructure, application development, and business process automation, your security skills and solutions need to adapt. You must secure privileged access to cloud infrastructure and workloads before attackers take advantage.What you’ll learn in this whitepaper:
- The most common cloud use cases across Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and DevOps that are vulnerable to privileged account attacks.
- How to seamlessly fit Privileged Access Management (PAM) into different cloud scenarios to match the growth of your privileged accounts, applications, and users without slowing down other resources or losing control.
- How your security team can have a consistent PAM strategy, even with multiple business and technical functions utilizing different types of cloud resources.
