Cloud Security for the Healthcare Industry

In healthcare and life sciences, cloud technology is powering significant innovations in everything from remote healthcare to patient trials. At the same time, the cloud poses new challenges for securing highly sensitive patient data and compliance with regulatory standards. Governing identity and access is an essential pillar of public cloud security. Learn how to protect your cloud-based applications with Ermetic.

Least-Privilege Access to Healthcare Data in the Cloud

The shift to the cloud has advanced healthcare practices both behind the scenes and for patients – from medical innovations like drug discoveries and new treatments, to increased efficiency in hospitals. At the same time, ensuring patient medical confidentiality and compliance with HIPAA is more complex than ever.

 

 

I started looking at Ermetic and saw it offered visibility into access and privileges. Ermetic let me show stakeholders we could take work off their plates. This was the first use case; you guys knocked it out of the park.

The Difficulty of Eliminating 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.

An Identity-First Cloud Infrastructure Security Platform

Ermetic automates entitlement management for public cloud applications. It provides a complete picture of the assets in your environment, visualizes entitlements, and surfaces risks. With Ermetic, you can continuously identify and analyze excess permissions, and automate implementation of least-privilege policies, in accordance with your organizational practices.

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.
