Research Brief: The Importance of Cloud Entitlements for Managing Cloud Security Risk
Research Brief

With the move to cloud-native application development, developers can rapidly scale for faster product releases by provisioning their own cloud infrastructure. However, as they provision the entitlements needed to build and run their applications—including workloads, user identities, actions, and resources—they often overprovision access to enable them to quickly build their applications. When applications are deployed and run in cloud environments, a CIEM solution has a high impact on mitigating security risk by eliminating unneeded access points from entitlements that can expose them to attacks or lateral movement in security incidents.
