“Most organizations lack the internal resources and expertise to manage cloud security on their own, and are turning to security service providers for help,” said Scott Hoard. “The Ermetic platform provides a turnkey solution that allows channel partners to deliver comprehensive, multi-cloud protection to their customers that is intuitive to use.

The Ermetic Synergia Partner Program enables IT service providers, systems integrators, consultants, MSPs/MSSPs and ISVs to deliver turn-key cloud infrastructure security solutions using the Ermetic cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP). The Ermetic CNAPP spans cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM), cloud security posture management (CSPM) and more for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform environments. It detects and remediates excessive, risky privileges and resource misconfigurations (e.g. databases exposed to the internet) on a continuous basis by analyzing identities and permissions along with the configuration of network, storage and secrets assets. Ermetic reduces the cyber attack surface at scale across single and multi-cloud infrastructures with full stack visibility and control over multi-cloud infrastructure entitlements and configurations.
Ermetic helps prevent breaches by reducing the attack surface of cloud infrastructure and enforcing least privilege at scale in the most complex environments.

The company is led by proven technology entrepreneurs whose previous companies have been acquired by Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks and others.
