Identity and Access Management in the Cloud

One of the global trends across all industries has been the incorporation of cloud technology into digital business plans. As a result, the demand for cybersecurity tools specialized for cloud use cases has skyrocketed.

The ability to store data and run software and applications in the cloud eliminates the need for internal resources and provides greater accessibility. To ensure the same level of protection for cloud-stored assets as on-premise assets, additional safeguards beyond well-known measures such as Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) and Host Your Own Key (HYOK) are required.

Cloud-stored assets can reliably be protected against unauthorized access by utilizing the respective applications. This refers not only to the security of previously uploaded data, but also to its preparation, such as the use of digital signatures to prove the data’s integrity and authenticity, or the encryption of the data prior to upload.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is the foundation for securing cloud-stored assets and enabling consistently reliable security in the cloud.
