2021. Microsoft acquires access management startup CloudKnox



Microsoft has acquired identity and access management (IAM) startup CloudKnox Security. CloudKnox helps organizations enforce least-privilege principles to reduce risk and help prevent security breaches. The company’s activity-based authorization service will equip Azure Active Directory customers with granular visibility, continuous monitoring and automated remediation for hybrid and multi-cloud permissions. In addition to Azure Active Directory, the company also plans to integrate CloudKnox with its other cloud security services, including 365 Defender, Azure Defender and Azure Sentinel. Microsoft also recently acquired IoT security startups CyberX and Refirm Labs as it moved to beef up its security portfolio.
