Collaboration on GCP allows software development teams to deliver projects faster and meet deadlines. However, one major obstacle they face are security issues related to standing privileges. To improve cloud security, Britive’s new resource recommends implementing ephemeral access solutions.

The guide explains that identity and privilege access expose development teams, and organizations, to security risks due to GCP’s wide attack surface. Britive proposes that by implementing just-in-time (JIT) permissioning, developers can mitigate these risks without sacrificing user experience.
The release of the guide coincides with a 2022 study which found that Google Cloud Platform is the second most popular cloud computing solution among software developers. 18.14% of responders said that they want to work with GCP in the future.
Recognizing the growing importance and popularity of GCP, Britive provides solutions to the most common issues software development teams face with Google’s cloud computing platform.
“Our privilege authorization capability offers an effective and proven way to minimize the impact of a breach without affecting user experience and productivity,” explained a company spokesperson. “If you love the speed of Google Cloud Platform but need better security, Britive is the solution for you.”
Britive’s innovative solution for improved GCP security starts with managing identities and their privileges. As all identities – whether human or synthetic – require privileged entitlements or secrets on Google Cloud Platform, this leaves the organization vulnerable to security attacks since standing privileges are easy to take advantage of.
In the new guide, Britive explains how its platform eliminates standing privileges by granting access to authorized and authenticated users only on just-in-time ephemeral basis. With JIT privileged access management, access is automatically granted and revoked for all identities.
Britive’s fully cloud-native solution supports cross-cloud visibility and can be easily deployed, improving access management across the entire could ecosystem. The platform is designed to provide extra security measures while accelerating app development.
Founded by Art Poghosyan, Alex Gudanis, and Sameer Hiremath, Britive is the first-to-market company to deliver a cloud-native solution with unified access control across multiple cloud and SaaS platforms.
