Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)
CSPM tools monitor cloud infrastructure to ensure that all cloud applications and services are securely configured. Learn how Ermetic’s CSPM, part of an identity-first cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP), offers iron-clad protection including unified CSPM and CIEM, to accurately detect and remediate your greatest configuration and permission risks.

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.
Securing Cloud Configurations Can Be Daunting
You can be compliant yet not secure; even a small misconfigured setting can expose sensitive assets to bad actors. Avoiding attacks calls for removing risk and enforcing security best practice including least privilege – yet doing so at scale without automation is near impossible.
Ermetic automatically monitors your cloud configurations, security settings and compliance against common frameworks, regulatory requirements and enterprise policies to determine where excessive risk exists. It prioritizes, accurately alerts to vulnerabiliities and non compliance, and auto-remediates faulty configurations, violations and risks, including identity-based.
Multicloud Asset Management & Unified Visibility
Ermetic provides a full asset inventory for AWS, Azure and GCP. It continuously discovers your cloud environment across infrastructure, workloads, identities and data, powerfully visualizing all your cloud assets. It offers a unified view that simplifies your team’s understanding of even the most complex issues.
- Gain a multi-dimensional, searchable view into all configurations, human and service identities, and entitlements
- Continuously detect and categorize resources in your multicloud environment across identity, data, compute and network resources
- Visualize network interconnects, security groups and access pathways to stored data
By combining CIEM and CSPM tools, Ermetic offers one-stop, full stack visibility into attack vectors in cloud configuration and access risk rooted in identity entitlements and resource settings.
Risk Analysis and Auto-Remediation of Misconfigurations and More
Ermetic applies full stack risk analysis to your cloud configurations, identities, workloads, network and more, identifying, contextualizing and prioritizing risks.
- Discovers risks associated with misconfigured infrastructure, and the toxic mix of identities, permissions, vulnerabilities and network configuration that can expose sensitive resources
- Prioritizes findings, helping teams tap into their “inner security expert” to focus on the risks that matter most
- Auto-remediates misconfigurations, policy violations, and risky privileges, including excessive and unused
- Speeds up mitigation via wizards, pre-populated optimized policies and configuration fixes in tickets, and IaC snippets in Terraform and CloudFormation
Ermetic doesn’t just point to risk – it offers actionable findings that accelerate decision-making and options for automating your response. It spares teams time wasted on manual analysis or sifting through siloed alerts. It delivers precise policies that resolve risk and non compliance, and drive least privilege organization-wide, reducing the attack surface.
Compliance Auditing and Automated Reporting
Ermetic automates compliance and security against industry standards and benchmarks, and custom frameworks. It helps you understand what is running in your environment and how it is configured.
Audit and compliance teams can use Ermetic to identify and mitigate compliance violations early, and create detailed reports.
- Continuous multicloud compliance with tens of industry frameworks including CIS, AWS Well Architected, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO, NIST, PCI-DSS, SOC2, CIS for Kubernetes and more, and custom checks
- Generate detailed reports for internal compliance, external audit and daily security activities (asset inventory, misconfiguration, network configurations,…)
Ermetic simplifies and reduces overhead from cloud compliance with a single platform that continuously scans configurations and resources across clouds, prevents violations and enforces policies and least privilege.
Anomaly Detection and Incident Investigation
Ermetic automates threat detection of unusual activity through continuous risk analysis against behavioral baselines, helping identify anomalous and suspicious behavior that can endanger your most critical assets. It analyzes cloud provider logs and correlates cloud threats with the underlying architecture to instantly reveal the context associated with each risk.
The platform offers teams enhanced incident investigation through powerful queries of enriched data sources and intuitive tools for viewing and investigating risks in context. You can empower incident response and SOC teams to react quickly through integrations with SIEM (Splunk, IBM QRadar,…) and ticketing and notification systems (ServiceNow, Jira,…).
Securing Cloud Identities & Entitlements
Ermetic is the industry leader in securing cloud identities (human and service) and entitlements (CIEM). It applies deep risk analysis derived from a profound understanding of cloud infrastructures and permissions models to deliver findings that are hard to detect manually and precise, automated remediation.
- Leverage built-in and customizable policy templates to easily attain least privilege without disrupting productivity
- Apply granular, IAM and configuration policy recommendations for all identities and implement a zero standing privileges strategy
- Use Just-in-Time access management to enforce fine-grained least privilege policies and avoid use of long-standing privileges, which engender risk

Using [Ermetic’s] automation allowed us to eliminate exhaustive manual processes and perform in minutes what would have taken two or three security people months to accomplish
Stepping Stones to a Constantly Improving Cloud Security Posture
Your public cloud environment is in a constant state of flux, and attackers are waiting to pounce on weakness. If your ultimate security goal is to find and address prioritized gaps immediately, you have a friend in Ermetic. The platform monitors your cross-cloud environment across the full stack, correlating risk with the underlying architecture to shine a light on where risk is hiding, how urgent it is and what actions to take.
Ermetic enables enterprises of all sizes – and cloud footprint size – to manage cloud security posture with minimal effort and overhead, regardless of changes over time. It equips you with the stepping stones to ramp up cloud security best practice and collaboration organization wide without impacting speed to market.
Cloud-Native Security across the Full Lifecycle
Ermetic offers cloud security posture management and compliance as part of its comprehensive Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) for AWS, Azure and GCP environments. The platform provides continuous discovery across identities, infrastructure, workloads and data, visualizing, prioritizing and remediating cloud security and compliance risks from development to deployment. Ermetic integrates in CI/CD pipelines for complete shift left security, and democratizes and accelerates organizational security efforts.
Hear from Ermetic’s Customers
“With Ermetic, Tyler’s been able to save hundreds to thousands of man hours in managing permission sets in AWS.”
“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. ”
“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.”
“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.”
