Gartner® Innovation Insight: Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)

CIEM (Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management) helps organizations detect identity-related misconfigurations, ensure least-privilege compliance, and monitor identity hygiene in cloud environments. Instead of functioning as a separate tool, CIEM capabilities are increasingly included as part of a holistic cloud security platform.

According to Gartner, “Managing cloud permissions is challenging due to the number of assets and diverse authorization systems, worsened by the explosion of machine identities. Security and risk management leaders must combine traditional IAM and cloud security approaches with CIEM for efficient identity-first security.”

Read the new Gartner Innovation Insight: Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management report to learn about:

  • The challenges to secure multi cloud entitlements and identities across cloud resources
  • Four core use cases of CIEM 
  • How CIEM capabilities are increasingly being embedded in cloud security posture management (CSPM) and cloud-native application protection platforms (CNAPP)
