CloudKnox Named 2021 TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor

Cloud Permissions Management Platform included in the TAG Cyber 2021 Security Annual

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--CloudKnox Security, provider of the only cloud permissions management platform for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, today announced its selection by TAG Cyber as a Distinguished Vendor in the 2021 Security Annual. Through this inclusion, TAG Cyber recognizes CloudKnox as part of an industry collective supporting democratization of cyber security research and advisory materials.

As vital infrastructure migrates to the cloud, security and cloud infrastructure teams are responsible for uncovering and right-sizing human and non-human identities with excessive high-risk permissions. CloudKnox’s Cloud Infrastructure Permissions Management (CIPM) platform helps enterprises protect their critical cloud resources from accidental or intentional permissions misuse and exploitation by automating the creation, monitoring and enforcement of least privilege policies.

“We are proud to be included in TAG Cyber’s 2021 Security Annual,” said Balaji Parimi, Founder & CEO of CloudKnox. “Permissions management is a dire obstacle for enterprises that, if not handled properly, could result in service degradation, service disruption, data exfiltration or complete destruction of infrastructure. CloudKnox delivers a solution that puts visibility and control of multi-cloud environments back into the hands of the enterprise so they can eliminate the permissions gap and significantly reduce cloud security and infrastructure operations costs.”

“CloudKnox is making a significant impact on the industry,” said Dr. Edward Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber. “The platform directly addresses the complexity of cloud permissions management.”

The 2021 Security Annual is part of a yearly series from TAG Cyber that is published each September since 2016 and is available for download here. The report offers expert guidance, analysis and education across the entire cyber security ecosystem. Each distinguished vendor, including CloudKnox, was selected by the TAG Cyber Analyst team led by Dr. Amoroso.

In addition to being selected as a 2021 TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor, CloudKnox was recently recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor in IAM and Fraud Detection, and an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency Partner. Most recently, Cyber Defense Magazine named the company a Top 100 Cyber Security Startup in the 2020 Black Unicorn awards.
