In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

CloudKnox is the only multi-cloud and hybrid cloud permissions management and security platform that focuses on a dynamic authorization model by utilizing patented Activity-based Authorization, rather than static role-based access controls.

The CloudKnox approach was built on a belief that the solution to mitigating threats resulting from over-privileged identities should not be about restricting privileges but about creating a non-intrusive path to managing the entire identity privilege lifecycle while avoiding any impact to productivity or trust.

CloudKnox competitors don’t manage the problem of over-provisioned identities natively across private and public cloud environments to offer this solution.

Brief Overview

Defined by global research and advisory leader Gartner in 2020, Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management (CIEM) describes the next generation of solutions for managing access and enforcing least privilege in the cloud. CloudKnox brings an enterprise CIEM platform to market that has established itself as a reliable and critical investment among customers, partners, investors and independent industry organizations as the need for continuous protection of cloud resources and ability to enforce zero trust access become strategic imperatives.

CloudKnox leads the CIEM market with the only enterprise-trusted platform of its kind. CloudKnox’s platform exceeds the core requirements of a CIEM solution and is best positioned to support the explosion of multi-cloud adoption and reduce the number of future security failures as the market sees further growth. CloudKnox will further support enterprise shifts to automation by innovating leading-edge solutions across three core pillars: entitlements authorization management, anomaly detection and response, and continuous compliance.

Additionally, the first-to-market Cloud Permissions Management Platform recently extended its capabilities for multi-cloud serverless functions container support while also delivering a fully automated remediation solution as part of the platform to ensure continuous right sizing of entitlements and permissions—the first in the CIEM space to offer comprehensive permissions and identity management in multi-cloud environments.
