In cloud platforms, identity and permissions are the most important control that customers get to implement. Network segmentation and other traditional controls are often ineffective and access to resources is determined by a mixture of roles & policies. This mixture can become very complex and difficult to lock down. In this episode, we are hosting Arick Goomanovsky, Chief Business Officer at Ermetic, to discuss Cloud identity and access challenges, and to review real life examples of what can happen when neglecting identity and access entitlements in cloud infrastructure.
