SailPoint rolls out cloud governance solutions for a multi-cloud world

SailPoint Cloud Access Management enables enterprises to gain better visibility into which users, human and non-human, have access to multi-cloud IaaS environments, leveraging real-time monitoring to automatically find and manage high-risk access, and ensuring least privilege using defined guardrails where necessary.

As the adoption of multi-cloud platforms increases, without proper governance over access to these platforms and workloads, enterprises lack visibility into who and what has access to sensitive applications and data in the cloud which opens up new areas of risk across the organisation, SailPoint states.

Trulove says, “By extending identity governance to evaluate where access risks may exist in these environments, we’re providing the visibility our customers need to understand and secure access while speeding important access decisions in the cloud.

Mistrust in artificial intelligence (AI) continues to manifest itself as the emerging technology spreads to industries spanning the tech world, with cybersecurity being no exception.

report released today by WhiteHat Security has revealed while over half of surveyed organisations use artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning in their security stack, nearly 60% are still more confident in cyberthreat findings verified by humans over AI.

AI and ML can be a powerful stress relief agent too, as nearly 40% of respondents also feel their stress levels have decreased since incorporating AI tools into their security stack Of this number, 65% claim AI tools allow them to focus more closely on cyberattack mitigation and preventive measures than before.

But the perceived gulf between human and machine intuition is proving to be the primary barrier to more widespread adoption, with a majority of respondents emphasising skills that the human element provides that AI and machine learning simply cannot match.
