CloudSphere Wins Gold For Cloud Governance and Azure Cloud Security in 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards
We’re thrilled to share that CloudSphere has won gold in two categories of the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards! Our Cloud Governance solution has been recognized in the categories “Cloud Identity Governance” and “Azure Cloud Security” North America. Moreover, our platform also was awarded silver in two additional categories: “Cloud Security” and “AWS Cloud Security” North America.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. The awards are produced by Cybersecurity Insiders in partnership with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the vast experience of over 400,000+ cybersecurity professionals to honor the world’s best cybersecurity products, professionals and organizations.
Empowering Customers with Award-Winning Cloud Governance
It’s an honor to be recognized by these awards for our work in Cloud Governance. We’re dedicated to empowering our customers to control cloud security risks and ensure compliance in their complex multicloud deployments with real-time visibility, continuous configuration monitoring, and user-controlled auto-remediation capabilities.
According to IDC, total worldwide spending on cloud services will surpass $1 trillion in 2024. For many enterprises investing in cloud services, the complexity of public cloud service offerings and the emphasis on new service velocity has resulted in escalating security risks. Our recent survey conducted in partnership with Dimensional Research revealed that 57% of enterprises rely on different identity and access management (IAM) tools for each of their cloud services (e.g. Azure, AWS, GCP). This leads to increased security gaps and inconsistencies with how IAM is applied, and — more importantly — how it is enforced, thereby resulting in a higher probability of misconfigurations and data breaches.
We solve these challenges by allowing customers to create and enforce governance policies in hybrid and multi-cloud deployments from a single platform. With CloudSphere, customers can:
- Track who has access to critical cloud-based assets with dashboard diagrams visualizing access paths that provides insights into users and attached policies and permissions.
- Minimize the cloud’s attack surface with comprehensive security controls that monitor and control security status in real-time.
- Remediate IAM problems before they can be exploited with auto-remediation and assisted-remediation capabilities.
- Regain and maintain control in multi-cloud environments with policy consistency for access privileges to key cloud assets.
Traditional governance controls lack the visibility and reach required to address current issues, and a new approach is needed to reduce security risks and eliminate access sprawl. It’s necessary to employ a comprehensive and visual approach to monitor, manage and retain visibility of user access to cloud-based services and resources. Our goal is to enable organizations to always understand who or what has access to services and functionality in real-time, ensuring comprehensive visibility and security across the cloud landscape.
“We congratulate CloudSphere for its recognition as a Gold award winner in the Cloud Identity Governance and Azure Cloud Security – North America award categories of the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 500,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn which organizes the 6th annual Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. “With over 600 entries in more than 100 award categories, the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program is highly competitive and all winners reflect the very best in innovation and excellence in tackling today’s urgent cybersecurity challenges.”
In the new era of public cloud ubiquity, cloud governance is more important than ever. We’re honored that CloudSphere’s cloud security posture management solution has been recognized for providing the guardrails needed to regain and maintain control in multi-cloud environments.
