Shadow Access — or unauthorized, invisible, unmonitored and unintended access — has quickly become one of the most pressing security challenges for organizations safeguarding valuable data in the cloud. As stated by the Cloud Security Alliance, “The consequences of Shadow Access are potentially catastrophic and threaten to impact any organization that has an evolving cloud.”

As ChatGPT and other AI-driven applications continue to surge, access to enterprise data is expanding significantly in tandem, making it extremely difficult for organizations to keep track of entitlements and privileges granted to both human and non-human entities and increasing the likelihood of falling victim to a cyberattack.

The rising threat of Shadow Access and the rapid advancement of cyberattacks leave organizations with little time to waste when finding the right identity risk management solutions to safeguard their data.

Stack Identity’s platform is a converged identity security solution that reveals and continuously detects, eliminates and governs 100% of Shadow Access risks in the cloud. The industry-leading solution is a next generation CIEM, that unifies cloud identity and entitlement management, Cloud IGA and ITDR to provide a prioritized list of hidden Shadow Access patterns, which enable attackers to infiltrate cloud environments and exfiltrate data, and create compliance violations to regulations such as HIPAA, SOC2, AWS-FTR, AWS-CISA, PCI-DSS SEBI and FedRamp.

“We’ve seen the growing demand from our customers asking to make our platform available through AWS Marketplace, and we listened to their needs,” said Venkat Raghavan, founder and CEO of Stack Identity. “Stack Identity’s availability on AWS Marketplace will make it easier and more cost-efficient than ever for customers and prospects to access our platform’s leading identity risk management capabilities.”

According to a survey by Forrester and AWS, 33% of organizations prefer to use cloud marketplaces when purchasing cloud software, with AWS noted in particular due to its trusted reputation and simplicity of the buying process. And the growing preference for purchasing through cloud marketplaces is only projected to increase with time.

Since many early-stage vendors, such as Stack Identity, are not yet on pre-approved vendor lists, the procurement process can often be lengthy, cumbersome and expensive for both parties. With Stack Identity’s availability on AWS Marketplace, customers and prospects can now enjoy a simplified and accelerated buying process, saving valuable time for buyers everywhere.

“Stack Identity’s availability on AWS Marketplace makes vendor qualification easy, greatly simplifying the procurement and adoption processes,” said Steve De Jong, distinguished engineer at Vercara. “Stack Identity’s platform provides essential visibility into our data exposure risks and helps us address the cornerstone problem — automatically eliminating Shadow Access across our large AWS ecosystem.”

Organizations seeking advanced risk management capabilities can now enjoy the benefits of Stack Identity’s solution on AWS Marketplace. New or existing Stack Identity customers interested in using the fully featured identity risk management platform on AWS can contact Stack Identity directly or through their AWS Marketplace listing.
