The CloudKnox Cloud Security Platform

Significantly reduce your risks against compromised credentials, accidents and insider threats

THE PROBLEM WITH PRIVILEGE

It’s not enough to guard against malicious intent.  The keystroke that takes a data center offline is more likely to be a result of a typing error.

The #1 risk to your infrastructure is a trusted identity with excessive privileges (e.g. service accounts, API keys, applications, bots, third party contractors or employees).

When workloads can be deleted with a keystroke, understanding and managing high risk privileges across your cloud environment is a critical but daunting task – unless you have proper tools. 

Old solutions DO NOT WORK

Good security means adherence to the principal of least privilege. Yet the misfit between role-based access controls (RBAC) and today’s dynamic cloud environments makes this nearly impossible.

Roles include a pre-determined set of privileges yet identities assigned a role rarely require all of those privileges. There is a better way. Privileges should be granted based on what is needed to perform day-to-day jobs.

CHANGES THE EQUATION

Our approach is built upon our belief that the solution to mitigating insider threats should not be about restricting privileges but about creating a much less intrusive path to managing high-risk privileges without impacting productivity and trust.

“As we scale our enterprise infrastructure, it’s becoming clear that having visibility into how many identities can touch the infrastructure, what privileges they have and what they actually do with them is critical. Managing privileges based on static roles is too complex and tedious and creates the need for a solution that CloudKnox fulfills perfectly. Without the need to write a single line of script to understand multiple private and public cloud authorization models, CloudKnox uniquely and simply enables us to effectively enforce the principal of least privilege at the infrastructure level within our environment.”
