Ermetic, the cloud access risk security company, today announced it has been named Cloud Security Product of the Year in the 2020 Computing Security Excellence Awards, which celebrate the achievements of the IT industry’s leading security companies, solutions, products and personalities. The company was also recently named one of the 10 Hottest Cloud Computing Startups of 2020 by CRN and profiled in an eWEEK product review.
According to Computing, businesses are increasingly turning to the cloud for its flexibility and scalability, but many still cite security concerns as the main barrier to cloud adoption. We wanted to see a solution that could address these fears, with a simple rollout and great protection.
“Ermetic made an excellent submission highlighting a fantastic product, one that is unique to the market and solves a specific and well-known problem,” said Computing Judge Stu Hirst of Just Eat. “Least privilege isn’t easy to implement in cloud environments and as companies grow identity and access management becomes often unmanageable.”
“Understanding and managing cloud entitlements, which span highly dynamic users and machine identities, is manually impossible,” said Shai Morag, CEO of Ermetic. “That’s why we created the Ermetic platform, to reduce risk and enforce least privilege through automation. Winning the Computing Security Excellence Award is important market validation for the problems that we solve for customers.”
The Ermetic analytics-based solution prevents cloud data breaches by automating the detection and remediation of risky entitlements in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings from Amazon, Google and Microsoft. It automatically discovers all human and machine identities in the cloud, and analyzes their entitlements, roles and policies using a continuous lifecycle approach. By combining analytics with granular, full stack insight, Ermetic makes it possible to enforce least privilege access at scale even in the most complex cloud environments.
Ermetic enables enterprises to protect cloud infrastructures (IaaS/PaaS) from access-related risks and misconfigurations by maintaining continuous visibility into identities, their entitlements and data usage. By combining analytics with granular, full stack insight, Ermetic makes it possible to enforce least privilege access at scale even in the most complex cloud environments. The company is led by proven technology entrepreneurs whose previous companies have been acquired by Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks and others. Ermetic has received funding from Accel, Glilot Capital Partners, Norwest Venture Partners and Target Global. Visit us at https://ermetic.com/ and follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
