How Do You Migrate PAM to the Cloud?Peter Gankin of Takeda Shares His Company's Journey
What are some challenges of shifting on-premises PAM to the cloud, and how should you go about it? Peter Gankin, head of identity and access management at Takeda, a Japanese multinational pharmaceutical company, shares his views.
"When you migrate to the cloud, there are a couple of options. You either migrate to the cloud server or have SaaS solutions. Because PAM as a SaaS platform was new, we decided to migrate to the cloud server," Gankin says.
"We had a dedicated team at Takeda to support the cloud migration. The movement was not easy since PAM requires servers to be super secure and AWS by default is not designed this way. So we had to manually set up servers individually."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Gankin also discusses:
- The nontechnical challenges of shifting to the cloud;
- The entire process of PAM cloud migration;
- Recommendations on cloud migration.
Gankin has been part of the IAM team at Takeda for the past six years. Previously, he was with AbbVie as lead engineer for endpoint protection.
