Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)

What is CIEM?

Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) solutions automate the process of managing user entitlements and privileges across cloud environments. 

CIEM solutions provide visibility into cloud identities and entitlements by scanning access policies and configurations. They help identify excessive permissions that create risk, and enable security teams to right-size permissions to only what is needed.

The goal of CIEM is to reduce attack surfaces and mitigate access risks resulting from entities having more entitlements than necessary to carry out their responsibilities.

By enforcing least privilege access, CIEM helps defend against data breaches, malicious attacks, and other threats posed by overprivileged identities in dynamic cloud environments.
