Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)
What is Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)?
Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) is a technology solution that helps organizations manage data governance and user entitlements across their cloud environments. It’s considered an extension of security information and event management (SIEM.)
What can we use CIEM for?
CIEM is typically used to monitor and manage account entitlements across user accounts for an organization. It identifies dormant and unnecessary entitlements on user accounts and enables remediation and enforcement of least privilege security approaches.
CIEM reduces the risk of a permission gap for cloud-based accounts and services as it uses automation to monitor everything continuously. It allows for more proactive user and privilege management at scale.
