Securing the Future: IoT and Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) is continually expanding. It is transforming industries. Its market is projected to hit $1.3 trillion by the end of 2024. The projection is evident with the fact that connected devices are becoming increasingly integral to daily lives. However, critical challenge of ensuring security is also arising.


Enter Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) is a solution that promise to be strengthening security in IoT ecosystems.

Every connected device in today’s IoT represents a potential entry point for cyber threats. A 400% increase in malware targeting IoT devices was witnessed in 2023. It highlights the urgent need for robust authentication measures. CIEM plays an important role in IoT device authentication. It ensures that only authorized entities interact with these devices.

CIEM work in IoT environments. It comprises key components such as Identity and Access Management (IAM), Policy Enforcement, and Audit Trails. All these elements work together and provide granular control over who can access IoT devices. It enables organizations to strengthen security posture as well as respond swiftly to any suspicious activity.

Integrating CIEM into existing IoT ecosystems requires careful planning and even a good execution. Organizations need to first assess their current security measures, define clear policies and thereafter deploy automation tools.

CIEM also offers benefits beyond security. It enhances operational efficiency for businesses as well as consumers. It is equally beneficial to remote workers accessing smart office equipment or consumers managing interconnected home automation systems. It simplifies access management. It provides seamless user experiences as well.
