Ermetic for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Security
Proactively managing security risks in GCP infrastructure is a major challenge for enterprises looking to protect business-critical applications and data. The inherent gaps in coverage and visibility offered by disparate native GCP tools make it difficult to detect and prioritize cloud security risks.
Find out how Ermetic’s holistic platform and identity-first approach drive actionable insights and streamline security operations for GCP and multicloud environments.
Roadblocks to Protecting Your GCP Environment
The flexibility and agility of the cloud has enabled organizations to dramatically minimize time-to-value for their customers. However, the shift to cloud has made answering even basic security questions like “How many entitlements are excessive?” or “ Where do we need to improve compliance?” or “What are my top risks?” extremely difficult.
Existing solutions, including cloud-native tools, offer little relief. Teams often leverage a combination of tools to get the job done, but switching between multiple solutions to assess, investigate and remediate cloud security risks is no longer a viable option.
Cloud demands a different approach to security. Ermetic dives deep to find the risks within your GCP or multicloud environments and offers step-by-step remediation – all while making even the most complex problems simple.
Gain Continuous Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)
Simplify cloud compliance through a single platform that continuously scans configurations and resources across clouds, identifies violations and automates remediation. With Ermetic’s intelligent CSPM, analyze configuration data and cloud assets against industry best practices, compliance frameworks and custom policies.
Meet GCP-specific data privacy mandates, security best practices and other industry benchmarks using built-in compliance templates or custom policies tailored to match your organization’s needs to ensure that your GCP and mulitcloud environment is truly secure.
- Get a continuously updated picture of your cloud inventory and activity
- Prioritize risks and auto remediate based on business impact
- Demonstrate your ability to meet key data privacy mandates including PCI-DSS, GDPR, HIPAA and many more.
Complete Cloud Security for GCP
Ermetic is a comprehensive, identity-first Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) for GCP. The agentless solution unifies and automates asset discovery, risk analysis, runtime threat detection and compliance — across cloud infrastructure, workloads, identities and data. It identifies, prioritizes and remediates security and compliance flaws with pinpoint accuracy.
Ermetic helps you shift left by hardening your GCP and multicloud environment as part of the CI/CD pipeline. The platform democratizes security across devops, security and IAM teams.
Secure Your Cloud Identities and Entitlements (CIEM)
Get equipped with actionable visibility, uncovering all identities and access paths across all GCP projects and data stores. Ermetic provides full stack risk analysis across identities and entitlements, network and cloud configurations — identifying toxic combinations, prioritizing and remediating risk with high accuracy.
Manage GCP IAM risks and enforce least privilege access and zero trust by finding, auditing and removing excess permissions.
- Visibility into excessive permissions, toxic scenarios, network exposure and more
- Get recommendations for assigning identities with Roles based on actual usage data
- Detect and investigate suspicious behavior in real-time
Agentless Vulnerability Scanning & Workload Protection (CWP)
Ermetic takes an agentless approach to scan and detect critical workload risks. Its unified protection provides teams with a centralized, single point of visibility and control across all their GCP and multicloud environments.
By combining insights on vulnerabilities, exposed secrets / sensitive data, malware and misconfigurations, security and DevSecOps teams can reveal and effectively assess the full severity of a workload vulnerability.
- Gain deep visibility and context into cloud workload risk with intelligence gathered across virtual machines, serverless functions, container images and Kubernetes clusters
- Correlate vulnerabilities across OS packages, applications and libraries with additional workload characteristics to prioritize remediation efforts
Enable Shift-left with Infrastructure as Code Scanning (IaC)
Developers and DevOps teams leverage Ermetic to avoid errors, align with security policies and best practices, and harden GCP infrastructure as part of the CI/CD pipeline. The platform scans IaC for misconfigurations and risks in native development tools including Jenkins, BitBucket, CircleCI, GitHub and GitLab.
- Identify misconfigurations and compliance violations in code
- Automatically remediate by integrating fixes in existing workflows, ticketing systems and source code repositories
- Shift left to empower developers to remove configuration flaws prior to production

Hear from Our Customers
“The biggest benefit of working with Ermetic, it’s the discoverability component of Ermetic. It really lifts the veil on what is an opaque system. ”
“With Ermetic, Tyler’s been able to save hundreds to thousands of man hours in managing permission sets in AWS.”
“This is one of the few platforms I’ve brought into the cloud that has had actionable efforts in under 30 days. From a return on investment perspective, it was one of the best decisions we made.”
“Ermetic has allowed us to concentrate on our business rather than on concentrate just on the cloud security.”
