Cloud Entitlements and Posture Management Trends

Managing Security Risks in Cloud-native Applications

Moving applications to the cloud comes with faster release cycles and broad internet exposure. However, those benefits also come with an increase in the number of potential security incidents caused by misconfigurations, including a high number of which are identity-related.

Security teams looking to reduce security risk are turning to cloud entitlement and security posture management solutions. Effectively managing cloud entitlements is critical to fortifying overall cloud security posture. In fact, 99% of survey respondents who had experienced a cloud security incident due to multiple misconfiguration admitted that compromised cloud credentials played some role in exposing their cloud environment.
