Attivo expands IDR portfolio with new CIEM solution
Attivo Networks has expanded its identity detection and response (IDR) portfolio with the launch of a cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM) solution, IDEntitleX.
The solution aims to deliver visibility and reduce the attack surface for identities and entitlements in the cloud.
Organisations are moving to the public cloud in record-setting numbers, but with this growth comes unanticipated security challenges with user identity management and the explosion of ‘non-human’ identities such as applications, databases and data stores, Attivo said.
Gartner, Inc. estimates that “By 2023, 75% of security failures will result from inadequate management of identities, access, and privileges, up from 50% in 2020”. Unfortunately, traditional security tools are ill equipped to handle this explosion of resource management and, as a result, over-provision access and exasperate security risks.
“As organisations continue to adopt cloud infrastructure at an ever-increasing rate and human and non-human identities expand to match, CISOs must focus on identity-first security solutions that can keep pace with this growth,” said Venu Vissamsetty, VP of Research at Attivo Networks.
“This CIEM solution gives security teams the optimal flexibility and visibility they need for continuous monitoring of identities, entitlements, as well as correlation across standard cloud-based services.”
“In today’s heady atmosphere of accelerated app delivery, security is all too often remaining an afterthought,” said Rik Turner, principal analyst at Omdia.
“The rapid enterprise adoption of cloud computing has revealed a latent threat of ‘permission sprawl’, and this challenge is driving an emerging technology segment that prioritises visibility and reduces the attack surface for identities and entitlements in the cloud. With the introduction of IDEntitleX, Attivo Networks is well positioned to emerge as a major player in the CPM or CIEM market.”
