Tighter, least privilege access policies
Ermetic helps organizations enforce tighter, least privilege access policies to help prevent data breaches in AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. Shai Morag, CEO of Ermetic said,
“Until now, customers have been using retrofitted tools to try to manage cloud infrastructure accounts and entitlements. Ermetic has developed a cloud-native alternative that uses analytics to consistently manage permissions and enforce least-privilege access. We are pleased to welcome Accel as an investor and Andrei Brasoveanu to our Board. This capital infusion will help us capture a large share of the emerging market known as Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management.”
