After more than two years of the pandemic forcing remote and hybrid work, organizations still find it hard to secure cloud environments. According to a Proofpoint study released in collaboration with the Cloud Security Alliance, 81% of organizations are moderately to highly concerned about risks surrounding cloud suppliers and partners.

Adding to the expertise within CSA, AppViewX joined CSA to further educate the market on the increased risk surface created by the growing number of machines being deployed during cloud migrations. Alon Nachmany, field chief information security officer at AppViewX, will contribute to the research in the Identity Access Management and the Zero Trust Working Groups.

The IAM Working Group educates and guides the use of traditional on-premises and cloud-based IAM systems with and between cloud services. The Zero Trust Working Group develops Zero Trust standards to achieve consistency for cloud, hybrid and mobile endpoint environments.

"I am very excited for AppViewX to join the CSA's Identity Access Management and Zero Trust Working Groups,” said Nachmany. “Together, we will promote identity management and cloud security best practices to enable strong security assurance in the most complex and demanding cloud infrastructures."

AppViewX delivers solutions to reduce cybersecurity risk and ensure compliance in organizations across financial services, banking, healthcare, oil and gas, manufacturing and high tech. The company's CERT-plus certificate lifecycle management solution automates the discovery, monitoring, analysis, provisioning and orchestration of digital certificates and encryption keys to eliminate cloud service outages and prevent damaging security breaches.

"Cloud migrations and digital transformations create new security challenges for organizations,” said Jim Reavis, CEO, CSA. “We look forward to collaborating with AppViewX and aligning to our goal to provide the best education on securing cloud computing and reducing risk."
