CloudKnox Named Winner in 2021 Cyber Defense Magazine Global InfoSec Awards

Sponsored by Businesswire

CloudKnox Security, a permissions management platform provider for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine has named CloudKnox a winner in three categories in the 2021 Global InfoSec Awards:

  • Best Product in Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)
  • Market Leader in Identity & Access Management (IAM)
  • Best Product in PAM for Cloud Infrastructure

“CloudKnox’s platform is best positioned to support the explosion of multi-cloud adoption and reduce the number of future security failures as the market continues to grow,” said Balaji Parimi, Founder and CEO of CloudKnox. “Our team is laser-focused on responding to our customers’ needs and continuing to define the future of permissions management. It’s a privilege to lead CloudKnox and to be recognized for our success by the CDM Global InfoSec Awards.”

CloudKnox delivers automated identity management in its CIEM platform, which can be deployed in under 30 minutes and operational in a day. The company also provides customers with rapid assessments to quickly determine their IAM risk profile and reveal the identities who have access and high-risk permissions across the infrastructure, and thus the ability to inadvertently cause damage.

Through strategic partnerships with technology leaders such as HashiCorp, Okta, Ping, ServiceNow, Splunk and Amazon Web Services (AWS) — and integrations with AWS Config and AWS Control Tower — CloudKnox continues to scale its open platform. The company recently extended the CIEM market even further by becoming the first Cloud Permissions Management Platform to offer comprehensive support for serverless functions and Kubernetes Containers.

“CloudKnox embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

CloudKnox has established itself as a reliable and critical investment among customers, partners, investors and independent industry organizations as the need for continuous protection of cloud resources and ability to enforce Zero Trust access become strategic imperatives.
