He spent over 10 years as an equity research analyst at several investment banking firms, including Merrill Lynch, where he was the lead enterprise security analyst, in addition to covering infrastructure software and networking companies.

WHAT: The recent SolarWinds breach laid bare the need to control privileged access in cloud infrastructure environments. Staff administrators and third-party security and management software like SolarWinds need privileged access. However, it is exceedingly complex to manage the associated identities, access and privileges in public cloud infrastructure such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, especially at scale and in multi-cloud environments. This webinar will explain why existing tools including IAM, PAM, CSPM and others fall short, where the gaps are and why. The speakers will also explain how new technology and automation such as Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) is helping organizations rein in the problem by providing granular visibility and enforcing least privilege access on a continuous basis in the public cloud.
WHEN: Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 1:00 PM EDT
WHERE: Watch this webinar online with confirmed registration.
