Leverage policy-as-code to develop least-privileged IAM
Identity and Access Management (IAM) is essential to providing access and managing permissions across cloud services. By leveraging infrastructure as code (IaC), Bridgecrew helps security teams embed automated guardrails within development pipelines to enforce right-sized IAM policies.
What are the risks of overly-permissive IAM?
Maintaining the principle of least privilege is key to hardening your cloud security posture by making IAM policies more manageable and reducing the risk of unauthorized access and stolen credentials.
Maintaining least-privilege IAM requires a concerted effort and can be at odds with moving fast. When overly-permissive IAM policies build up over time, it can be difficult to untangle the resulting sprawl to get clear insight into who has access to what.
Managing access and permissions across hundreds, if not thousands, of cloud services is easier said than done. Without proper guardrails in place, it’s hard to retroactively identify overly permissive access that could amplify the impact of compromised credentials.
Enforcing least-privilege IAM policies across code and cloud
How it works
To help teams maintain IAM security best practices programmatically and consistently, our open source tool AirIAM and our platform are here to help.
Bridgecrew is equipped with dozens built-in IAM policies enforced from code to cloud to minimize over-privileged IAM roles and permissions.Learn more →
AirIAM is our open source tool that analyzes IAM activity and transforms sprawl into right-sized IaC that can be managed and versioned in code.Learn more →
