CloudKnox Attains Advanced Technology Partner Status in AWS Partner Network
Achieving the Highest Tier of APN Technology Program Demonstrates Proof of AWS Expertise and Provides Technical and Go-to-Market Support
SUNNYVALE, Calif. CloudKnox Security, a leader in identity privilege management for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, today announced it has earned Advanced Technology Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). This achievement underscores CloudKnox’s mission to empower security teams to proactively address accidental and malicious credential misuse by enhancing the continuous detection and mitigation of over-privileged identities. The APN is a global program designed to help partners build successful AWS-based businesses and solutions by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support.
The APN Advanced Technology Partner designation is the highest tier for APN Technology Partners that provide software and SaaS solutions. CloudKnox achieved APN Advanced Technology Partner status through a rigorous qualification process. The designation is based on AWS business history and references from CloudKnox customers.
“With unprecedented levels of automation and innovation at the infrastructure layer, IT teams have gone from managing less than 100 privileges to having to manage over tens of thousands of privileges across hybrid clouds,” said Balaji Parimi, CEO and founder of CloudKnox Security. “In effect, we’ve created ‘Super Identities’ with extraordinary powers and a whole new set of challenges. We address these challenges by abstracting the complexity out of managing human and non-human identities, their privileges and the resources they can access across disparate authorization systems. Achieving APN Advanced Technology Partner status demonstrates the expertise to helping AWS customers solve this problem.”
At the core of the CloudKnox platform is its revolutionary Activity-based Authorization Protocol and “Just Enough Privileges” Controller that provides a smart and simple way for enterprises to enforce security best practices such as the principle of least privilege, and separation of duties across their entire cloud infrastructure. By applying an automated lifecycle approach to identities, actions, and resources, CloudKnox can ensure that the security and infrastructure teams don’t have to worry about hiring experts, writing scripts and training their teams every time a new service or cloud platform is added to their environment.
