Isolate, control and monitor privileged access to all enterprise assets

Protected access. Recorded activities. Complete privileged session oversight.
Privileged account credentials provide access to the heart of the organization and thus they are a common target for external cyber attackers and rogue insiders. In today’s collaborative environment, organizations must support a range of end-users accessing privileged accounts including third party vendors, contractors, temporary employees and more. To mitigate external and internal risks, organizations must manage and monitor privileged account sessions without impacting the end-user experience.

CyberArk Privileged Session Manager, part of the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution, is a zero-footprint product that isolates, controls and monitors privileged user access and activities for critical UNIX and Windows-based systems, databases and virtual machines. The solution acts as a jump server and provides a single access control point, prevents malware from jumping to a target system, and records every keystroke and mouse click for continuous monitoring. This detailed audit trail provides auditors with a complete, searchable record of privileged sessions. A universal connector allows organizations to extend session monitoring to virtually any component of the IT infrastructure. The solution is built on the CyberArk Shared Technology Platform, delivering scalability, high availability and centralized management and reporting.
