"Current cloud provider processes for managing privileged identities are either non-existent or so poorly done that it is impossible for these organizations to expect to meet regulatory compliance when it comes to managing privileged accounts," explained Philip Lieberman, president and CEO of Lieberman Software. "We share the belief that the success of cloud vendors and their customers will only occur when security and transparency are equivalent or better than what can be provided by on-premises solutions."
Lieberman Software has been working with ISPs and cloud vendors for more than 17 years, and continues to lead the industry by providing highly scalable solutions that address critical issues of multi-tenancy within cloud infrastructures – allowing enterprises to maintain regulatory compliance as they migrate critical IT services to the cloud.
"The current poor security of the cloud and the total lack of transparency by some cloud vendors are the greatest inhibitors for cloud adoption. Our goal is to get cloud vendors to implement proper controls and appropriate security solutions, and provide a welcome environment for auditors where security is a proven quantity, not a secret. By joining CSA, we wish to share our security experience with other CSA members to drive greater adoption and success with the cloud," said Lieberman.
The company has broad technical partnerships and certifications with major hardware and software vendors that are providing products and services to cloud vendors. These partnerships allow Lieberman Software to offer a comprehensive set of out-of-the-box credential management, alerting, SIEM, and ITIL/CMDB connectors to existing and emerging cloud vendors to provide them with provable controls for managing privileged identities. Its solutions are designed for cloud vendors that are seeking to implement continuous compliance, as well as security SLAs and customer transparency into how cloud vendors are managing their IT environments.
“We welcome Lieberman Software’s membership in the Cloud Security Alliance,” said Jim Reavis, Executive Director of the Cloud Security Alliance. “Lieberman Software’s work in the privileged identity management space meets a vital need among cloud service providers, by enabling only authorized individuals to access their customers’ sensitive data and change configuration settings that could disrupt critical business services, while also providing the authoritative audit trails of privileged credentials usage that cloud service customers need.”
