CWSI to reduce identity risk with Microsoft Entra Permissions Management

CWSI, mobile, and cloud security specialists, has announced it will reduce over-permission risks for businesses in the UK and Ireland with the launch of Microsoft Entra Permissions Management. CWSI is one of the first Microsoft partners to provide the solution, which it’s introducing in response to increased multi-cloud adoption among its customers.

Microsoft Entra acts as a unified permissions management tool for businesses, enabling them to automate privilege management across multiple cloud platforms in a consistent and thorough manner. It enables privilege management in both cloud infrastructure and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platforms and is designed to support Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

The technology proactively monitors and remediates permission risks for any identity across multi-cloud environments in real-time, while mitigating over-privilege issues and ensuring compliance. It enables organisations to control their infrastructure, protect, verify, and govern data, and detect exposures in their security postures.

It permits the benchmarking of the Cloud platform against proven industry standards such as CIS and NIST permitting real-time monitoring of the risk surface by the CISO and security teams.

Ronan Murphy, CEO of CWSI said, “We’re excited to deepen our partnership with Microsoft following the introduction of this innovative cloud solution to our Microsoft portfolio. It comes at a crucial time when the number of machine identities is growing rapidly, which is increasing the risk of breaches and over-privilege in organisations. High turnover rates and past employees retaining privileged access to data is also a major concern for businesses and this solution gives organisations better control over its permissions, ultimately reducing cyber risks.”

The automation and tools provided ensure that companies can get the maximum capability across multiple vendors platforms through the normalisation that Entra Permissons Management provides to the administrative user. Where gaps in training/certification and production/workload pressure bring the risk of error Entra Permissions Management reduces or removes these.

CWSI’s Microsoft experts will provide ongoing managed support to customers following the deployment of the Entra Permissions Management solution. It can guide them through the stages, identify the priorities, and deliver a hardened operational platform with minimal permission risk.
