Cloud Security for Technology Companies
Software and Tech companies, many of which are cloud-first, are at the forefront of cloud adoption. The use of the public cloud helps them bring new products and services to market, and flexibly scale in real-time to meet demand. This agility is often reliant on providing access to engineering teams and if granted without proper boundaries can create an access control nightmare. Vitally important is to put strategies in place to protect personally identifiable information (PII), valuable IP and safeguard critical business processes. How do you overcome those challenges and make security and compliance a built-in strategy?
Find out how Ermetic helps leading companies prevent breaches by simplifying cloud security and compliance, leveraging contextual visibility into misconfigurations, workloads and identities
Manage Security and Compliance in One
Protecting cloud data is an increasingly high priority for tech companies. In addition to customer data, they must ensure that the intellectual property stored in the public cloud is secure. Ermetic provides fine-grained visibility across your multicloud environments, enabling security teams to continuously monitor and govern identities and access policies, implement least privilege across AWS, GCP and Azure and comply with security best practices.
Streamline the process of monitoring and auditing cloud identities and privileges, leveraging:
- Deep, multi-dimensional, searchable view into all human and service identities, resources, entitlements and configurations in your multicloud environment.
- Centralized logging makes it easier to generate detailed reports for asset inventory, network configurations and activity audits
- Simplified cloud security and compliance, and contextual visibility into misconfigurations, workloads and identities
Scaling Security While Curbing Cloud Risk
Ermetic continuously analyzes your multicloud environment automatically evaluating risk factors such as effective exposure, misconfigurations, excessive and risky privileges and leaked secrets. It also detects unusual data access, privilege escalation and other identity-related threats, including changes in login settings, reconnaissance attempts, and unauthorized use or theft of access keys. Ermetic analyzes cloud provider logs to reveal the identity behind each activity and affected accounts, resources and services.
Automate risk detection, prioritization and mitigation, leveraging:
- Granular, automated resource labels and tagging to help pinpoint toxic scenarios that pose the highest risk to your multicloud environments.
- Context-rich alerts, visualizations and out-of-the-box integrations that provide the information and the tools necessary to respond rapidly.

With Ermetic, we immediately saw the access-related risks to our environment and could quickly remediate them. No other solution provided this visibility.
Proactively Remediate Risk
Ermetic makes complex issues easy to understand, allowing security, DevOps and engineering teams to focus on the highest risks and proactively harden their cloud environments. Built-in remediation guidance helps remove the guesswork of addressing security issues, and optional auto-remediation can be set up ad hoc to fix misconfigurations and identity risks with a single click.
Leveraging a centralized dashboard, Security and DevSecOps teams can instantly:
- Auto-remediate risks directly with wizards
- Automatically-generate optimized policies and configuration fixes through Jira and ServiceNow
- Generate IaC snippets in Terraform and CloudFormation
Achieve and Maintain Compliance
Whether your cloud environment is subject to regulatory frameworks, or you prefer to benchmark against your own standards, Ermetic enables continuous compliance audit with industry standards and best practices. Ermetic monitors the full stack for potential violations, including asset inventory, misconfigurations and network configuration, across dozens of industry standards, best practices and custom frameworks.
Proactively secure your cloud infrastructure and meet your compliance needs by:
- Ensuring compliance with industry standards and benchmarks
- Carrying out continuous compliance audits including for CIS, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO, NIST, PCI and SOC2
- Generating detailed reports for asset inventory, network configurations and activity audits

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.
If I didn’t have Ermetic to manage my cloud security, I probably would need an additional two or three headcount in order to do that manually.
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 has allowed us to concentrate on our business rather than on concentrate just on the cloud security.
