Comprehensive Platform for Cloud Security Professionals
A recent survey found that 84% of respondents have only rudimentary capabilities for securing their cloud infrastructure, and only 16% had very advanced capabilities. As a cloud security professional, your never-ending work includes finding the right mix of tools and services to properly secure your cloud environment and advance your cloud security maturity.
Find out how Ermetic cuts through the complexity to reduce the attack surface of your cloud infrastructure, detecting threats, and enforcing least privilege at scale.
Gain Deep Visibility & Manage Your Multicloud Resources
The cloud is rapidly evolving, and continuous security with complete visibility is required. Traditional security approaches fail to address the cloud’s rapidly changing configurations and updates – requiring an entirely new approach to security. Cloud-native organizations, or those in the process of migrating, must adopt new security measures and automate security in order to keep pace. As a cloud security professional, you know how difficult and important it is to protect sensitive resources, identities and data, let alone take immediate action when risks are detected.
Ermetic was built from the ground up to address the unique challenges of the cloud. It continuously discovers all resources, human and service identities, permissions and configurations in your cloud environment to provide a contextual inventory. By continuously analyzing access policies, proactively eliminate excessive access to implement zero trust and least privilege across your multicloud infrastructure.
Focus on Security
Unlike other tools that operate in silos, Ermetic empowers cloud security professionals through customized prioritization and automatic remediation of risky privileges, excessive permissions and faulty configurations. When risky findings are detected, automated remediation kicks in – routing and assigning risk-prioritized actionable findings to appropriate teams. That includes policy recommendations to mitigate misconfigurations or automatically generated least privilege policies based on actual use. Using Ermetic, your teams can:
- Continuously assess and prioritize risk across human and service identities, network configuration, data and compute resources to proactively reduce your attack surface and blast radius in case of a breach.
- Automate threat detection and remediation efforts at scale leveraging rich, risk-prioritized findings.Mitigate and remediate risky privileges and faulty configurations using auto-generated and customizable policies that integrate across ticketing, CI/CD pipelines, IaC and other workflows.

Ermetic is addressing a use case that none of our other cloud security solutions does: giving visibility, and letting security gain trust and build collaboration with devops and other teams to mitigate identity risk.
Your Part in Shared Responsibility
Shared responsibility is often a source of frustration and confusion between cloud service providers and organizations. While the cloud provider may be fully compliant, delivering agreed upon security functionality as-a-service, it’s your organizations’ responsibility to continuously monitor and detect breaches. In practice, the task is enormous, and typically manual, and the stakes are high.
As a cloud security professional, you may likely find yourself in the eye of the storm; responsible for maintaining security and compliance of all applications, in addition to protecting user accounts, service configurations, security monitoring and cloud infrastructure compliance. So where do you start?
Ermetic’s identity-first approach tackles the leading risk to cloud infrastructure — permissions — to reduce your cloud attack surface at scale. By gaining a complete view into multicloud assets, cloud security professionals can assess, identify the root cause and automatically apply policy changes with step by step remediation recommendations.
Detect and Respond to Anomalies
Organizations struggle to prioritize cybersecurity initiatives because of lack of expertise and manpower coupled with inherent problems in collection and assessment of risks. Even if organizations collect risk data, ill-defined assessment strategies make it almost impossible to prioritize cybersecurity feeds and findings.
Ermetic simplifies in-depth investigation efforts by detecting and responding to early signs of anomalous activity or early attacker indicators of compromise such as unusual data access, unexpected permissions modifications and privilege escalation. It detects anomalies and supports forensics and investigation. By filling in the gaps in your talent shortage and your security operations, Ermetic removes the burden of manually monitoring cloud assets across multiple siloed tools.

Manage Security and Compliance from One Place
Ermetic prevents cloud data breaches and protects sensitive data by automating entitlement management and risk remediation for Azure, AWS and GCP. It automatically discovers all user and service identities, and analyzes their entitlements as granted by roles, scope and policies. Combining analytics with granular, full stack insight, Ermetic reduces the attack surface of your cloud infrastructure, detecting threats, and enforcing least privilege at scale..
Automate Least Privilege
The pathway to least privilege starts with a full and accurate picture of all entitlements. Continuous discovery of all entities and policies (including IAM, resource, permissions boundaries and ACLs) in the environment and analysis of the relationships to reveal the gap between desired enterprise policy and actual entitlements.
Ermetic automates entitlements management for cloud applications and enforces least privilege access at scale in some of the most complex cloud environments. It helps cloud security professionals overcome cloud security challenges and confidently shift left on security practices.

“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
