What is CIEM?
CIEM is Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management. The main function of this solution is on IAM (Identity and Access Management) governance. CIEM mitigates the risk associated with compromised credentials, privileged identities and provides a detailed log of not only who but when has anyone accessed any of the cloud resources. It helps in defining permissions which essentially means who has access to what and thus avoiding vulnerabilities in the system, keeping your cloud assets safe.
Why is CIEM Important and how Cloudanix does solve this?
CIEM helps track users' activities and can generate reports which will help track any unusual access, thus eliminating loopholes within the system. As we all preach “Prevention is better than cure” this applies here more than anywhere else. It can help track access changes or any other sensitive changes by providing a timeline view and thus preventing compromise of your cloud infrastructure. CIEM provides deep visibility of entitlements, detects identities or resources with excessive permissions to access patterns, and provides a comprehensive view of access key usage to help monitor them. It also provides an audit and report of user permissions of IAM, Audit roles, and service accounts.
