CyberArk Privileged Cloud Reduces Risk with PAM SaaS
August 1, 2019 | Security and Risk | Lex Register
Creating and executing a successful privileged access security program can seem like a daunting task. Privileged access is pervasive throughout the enterprise and can be difficult to manage without the right tools. Still, protecting privileged access and monitoring its usage is paramount for organizations as they work to secure an evolving digital business.
So, what do you do if you’re an organization that is already stretched for cybersecurity talent and you have a growing list of high priority security projects on your plate with tackling privileged access at or near the top of your list?
Organizations that have not started their privileged access management (PAM) journey should look to the leader in privileged access security, CyberArk, to quickly reduce the risk that unmanaged privileged access presents to every company. The CyberArk Privilege Cloud is delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS) to simplify customer’s management efforts, removing the need to worry about upgrades or deploying infrastructure. The CyberArk Privilege Cloud also works to shorten the time security teams need to significantly reduce the privileged access risk to the organization. Also, CyberArk is the first SaaS Privileged Access vendor to offer a solution that includes 150+ integrations out of the box to help quickly secure more workloads across the enterprise. Check out the CyberArk Marketplace to find pre-built technical integrations that can help you automatically rotate credentials and manage sessions across a variety of platforms!
CyberArk Privilege Cloud can help organizations with the following use cases:
1. Continuously Discover and Manage Privileged Credentials
Cyberark Privilege Cloud provides a fast and easy way for organizations to begin protecting privileged access. You can quickly onboard and automatically rotate the credentials that your administrators use to access sensitive critical systems across your enterprise to help ensure that access misuse does not negatively impact your business. As new technologies and employees are brought into the organization, you can confidently manage privileged access with a PAM SaaS solution that enables security teams to spend more time on securing privileged access and less time managing the back-end.
2. Isolate Privileged Sessions and Protect Credentials
CyberArk Privilege Cloud can automatically protect connections to a target and make sure the credential is not compromised by initiating a secure proxy that fully isolates each session without ever needing to expose the credential to admins. This improves the security posture of your organization by removing the need to display passwords and, with the integrations of technologies like RDP, SSH and others, CyberArk Privilege Cloud can provide a near seamless experience for administrators.
3. Record and Audit Privileged Sessions to Address Compliance Requirements
Almost every organization must adhere to at least one compliance regulation and many must adhere to several. Anyone who has been through an audit knows just how arduous that can be. With CyberArk Privilege Cloud, you get a full audit trail of privileged access usage. CyberArk organizes and present the audit trail data in a way that helps you to quickly prove that you were taking the appropriate steps to secure your company. The audit capabilities can also be critical when tracing the roots of a breach or when you want to see how privilege is being used in your firm.
