Last year, Gartner added a new category to its Identity and Access Management Technologies Hype Cycle: Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management. CIEM is increasingly vital as enterprises continue to prioritize company-wide digital transformation and the public cloud.
According to Gartner: “Cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM) offerings are specialized identity-centric SaaS solutions focused on managing cloud access risk via administration-time controls for the governance of entitlements in hybrid and multi-cloud IaaS. They typically use analytics, machine learning (ML), and other methods to detect anomalies in account entitlements, like accumulation of privileges, dormant and unnecessary entitlements. CIEM ideally provides remediation and enforcement of least privilege approaches.”
