Privilege Policy &
Identity and Access
Management (IAM)
Policy Validation​

Continuous, automated testing of an organization’s IAM policy

Privilege Policy & IAM Policy Validation Overview​

IAM tools have become a standard methodology for securely controlling access to company resources.
A threat actor
gaining control of a misconfigured or over-provisioned identity can access privileged
alter systems and potentially gain administrative control over the environment.

Cymulate provides assessments that show where a threat actor can obtain credentials and identity
information. Attack path maps visualize how an attacker can move throughout on-premises and
cloud environments.


IAM Policy Validation Challenges​

Ongoing tuning and maintenance of IAM technologies poses challenges​

Identities are a Primary Target
