Identity Controls & Cloud Scalability: Closing the Gap to Secure Your Cloud
Dudi Matot, Security Segment Lead at AWS
Special Guest from Forrester
“How do I secure the cloud?” is a question that many organizations are struggling to answer. The mismash of legacy tools and new solutions hasn’t helped either, as more tools for identity access, controls, and access models does not mean more security. As the cloud services tooling and infrastructure grows, it becomes easier for incidents to slip through the cracks. Many organizations struggle to capture a single view of all the identities in their cloud and this directly impacts their ability to scale securely.
In fact, as a newly commissioned study1] conducted by Forrester Consulting shows, despite the average organization using more than 6 cloud security tools, close to 96% have faced a security incident in the last 12 months. Further, 80% of decision-makers surveyed note that the increase in cloud migrations is requiring a new set of security solutions with 74% of respondents believing cloud migrations require new identity security and access solutions.
The concept “identity is the new perimeter” goes as far back as the ancient times of 2012, when AWS first announced its IAM service. The concept of IAM and access management goes even further. Our recent study shows a renewed focus on identities due to the rise of cloud services and the recent wave of high-profile data breaches.
