Beheer Privileged Identities in de Cloud
Hoe Privileged Identity Management zich ontwikkelt tot een service platform
Cloud service providers face enormous market pressures to deliver high service availability and consistent data security at an absolute minimum cost. Yet until now privileged accounts and other file-based secrets have proven difficult to secure within large-scale, dynamic cloud service provider networks using human intervention and first-generation software tools. As a result, improperly secured privileged accounts provide an easily exploited attack surface for hackers and malicious insiders. For example, a 2012 Verizon survey1 of larger organizations that suffered data breaches revealed that 84% of records were stolen as a result of compromised credentials.
Fortunately new types of automation are being introduced to address the problem of weak and unmanaged privileged credentials present in cloud infrastructures. This whitepaper outlines how Privileged Identity and sensitive file management is evolving as a platform for lifecycle orchestration in cloud service environments.
