Eliminate security gaps across public, private, hybrid cloud and SaaS environments

Unique challenges emerge in cloud environments where new, powerful credentials are created to provision, configure and manage thousands of machines from a single console.  New machines are created with a single click, instantly creating new, unmanaged privileged accounts.  In this dynamic environment, it is a requirement that organizations detect changes to privileged accounts and monitor all activity for maximum cloud security and efficient compliance audits.

The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution is designed to protect privileged accounts whether they are in on-premises, virtual or cloud environments.  With out-of-the-box integrations, privileged accounts for cloud management tools and APIs are secured, monitored and managed. This holistic cloud security solution enables organizations to leverage the benefits of cloud computing while reducing the risk of unauthorized access to privileged accounts.

In Private Cloud environments, CyberArk products integrate with hypervisor management tools, guest machines, APIs and scripts.  Available integrations include VMware vCenter and Microsoft Hyper-V.

In Infrastructure-as-a-Service environments leveraging the Public Cloud, CyberArk solutions integrate with public cloud web management tools and APIs in addition to guest machines.  Currently supported solutions include Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Software-as-a-Service solutions can be protected using the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution with integrations with common SaaS applications including social media accounts and business applications. To strengthen SaaS security, a full range of SaaS applications can be supported including Microsoft Office365, Facebook. LinkedIn, and Twitter.
