Microsoft Buys CloudKnox To Shore Up Multicloud Security

Share post:

Microsoft has acquired CloudKnox in an effort to streamline the process for companies trying to manage access control. CloudKnox manages the lifecycle of permissions by automatically revoking them instead of manually doing so when they are no longer needed, preventing data breaches.

CloudKnox includes several cloud services, including AWS, GCP, VMware and Azure.

According to Microsoft’s Identity Division, Joy Chik, products like CloudKnox enable companies to perform inventory across all different permissions and access controls in all their cloud environments and manage them in a way that gives them the least privilege required for what they do.

She explained, “It really complements the strengths of Azure AD, where we’re providing end-to-end identity management, especially for human identities. We’re already starting to provide non-human identity entitlement management for some of the Azure workloads and CloudKnox goes beyond just the Microsoft cloud.”
