Cloud Security for Financial Services

Transitioning to the cloud has its challenges — especially for financial, the most targeted sector. Of these, the most critical challenge is access risk. Excessive and misconfigured permissions are an open door to threat actors. Find out how governing identities and access in the public cloud can help banks and fintech companies mitigate security risks — and keep up with dynamic requirements for compliance.

Governing Identities and Access in the Public Cloud

For banks, insurance and fintech solutions, moving to the cloud is especially challenging due to stringent requirements for securing identity and access management. Enforcing least privilege is key — but how do you cut through cloud complexity to apply it without hurting business?

Ermetic helps financial entities secure their sensitive cloud infrastructure by governing access with full, actionable visibility into all identities and resources. It enables least privilege at scale and simplifies compliance efforts.

The Difficulty of Eliminating Excessive Permissions

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

Managing Cloud Security Posture

Today’s finance organizations need to contend with not just a dynamic and threat-heavy cloud landscape but also the multitude of cloud security compliance standards. Even knowing how to implement a given security standard can be a challenge unto itself. A strong cloud security strategy calls for being able to align with the different standards, update policies dynamically and report with granularity on resource configuration and compliance efforts.

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.
