Microsoft bolsters zero trust play with CloudKnox buy | #microsoft | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker


Microsoft has acquired cloud security start-up CloudKnox, a move it hopes will offer Microsoft Azure Active Directory customers greater granular visibility, continuous monitoring and automated remediation for hybrid and multi-cloud permissions.

Based in California, CloudKnox operates a platform for managing the identity privilege lifecycle across hybrid cloud environments. It employs an activity-based authorisation model to do this.

The company claims its approach offers a non-intrusive way to manage identity privileges and protect organisations’ critical infrastructure from malicious and accidental credential abuse.

From the perspective of Microsoft Identity corporate vice president Joy Chik, the move fits in with the vendor’s ongoing efforts to promote a zero trust security approach that verifies explicitly, grants least privileged access and always assumes breach — with identity as the first line of defence.

“Since IT modernisation often spans multiple clouds, cloud security and identity are top of mind for most of our customers,” Chik said in a blog post. “Modern identity security needs to protect all users and resources consistently across multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.
