Wipro at MWC 2018The Wipro and CloudKnox joint solution offering enables enterprises to protect and manage their Hybrid and Multi-Cloud infrastructure by continuously detecting and remediating over-permissioned identities.

Wipro will offer an Access Governance for Hybrid Cloud “as-a-service” offering, powered by CloudKnox. The company will leverage its NextGen Cyber Defense Centers to deliver the service. This offering provides continuous protection of critical cloud resources for customers by enforcing least privilege policies.

While adoption of private and public cloud is increasing, existing security solutions are inadequate to manage identities and resources across such a hybrid environment.

“Wipro will be offering Identity Governance and secure Cloud Workloads for customers who are migrating and managing Hybrid Cloud infrastructures,” Sheetal Mehta, chief information security officer & senior vice president, Cybersecurity & Risk Services, Wipro, said.
