Cloud Security for eCommerce

Online retail has seen exponential growth over the last few years, as retailers search for creative ways to build and keep connections with customers. Handling financial transactions and customer data in the public cloud is a risk as well as an opportunity. Learn how to mitigate the risk to sensitive data in online retail applications by governing identities and access.

Govern Identities and Access to Public Cloud Applications

The public cloud has been instrumental in improving the buying experience in retail and ecommerce environments. It has enhanced inventory management and in-stock updates to the consumers, while enabling companies to bring new products to the consumer more quickly. In the last few years, the cloud has dramatically accelerated and improved the entire purchasing process – from selection to payment to delivery tracking. But along with the opportunity comes increased risk and public cloud security should be preserved. and public cloud security should be preserved.

The Difficulty of Eradicating Excessive Permissions

According to Gartner, 50% of cloud security failures are the result of inadequate management of identities, access and privileges – and by 2023, that number will climb to 75%. For anyone familiar with IaaS/PaaS environments, the reasons are clear. With thousands of human and machine identities, compute and data resources, and hundreds of different policies, it is extremely difficult to identify and remove excessive permissions. At the same time, the speed and agility of development mean that the Privilege Gap is constantly widening.

Security audits in the cloud are no trivial matter. By enabling us to jump through audit hoops, Ermetic proved itself a capable technology and time saver.

If we didn’t have Ermetic analyzing roles, policies and network configuration, that would easily be an additional three to four analysts. It’s saving us hours and head count.

“Ermetic helps you know when to say your security is ‘done for now.’ It gave visibility into our cloud infrastructure — insights into what is actually happening in the system: are our configurations correct, are any IAM security possibilities providing back doors? Are secrets exposed, are packages outdated, are containers scanned before pushed? The third party testing company came in and was very complimentary — gave us a few tips, and we were done in a few days.”
