Managed service provider improves privileged credential management capabilities while ensuring compliance requirements are met internally and for its customers.
Secure Application Credentials
This white paper presents the security pains prevalent in Unix environments and offers some advice on what requirements to look for when evaluating solutions for these pains.
Federal agencies are required by law to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), which references the NIST SP 800-53 Recommendations. The long-awaited Revision 4 represents the first major review of the Recommendations in almost four years. These changes have important ramifications for agencies that need to be FISMA compliant.
A primary driver for updating the NIST Recommendations was to help organizations confront advanced persistent threats (APTs). Many controls and control enhancements were added to address APTs, including increased requirements for securing privileged accounts.
Privileged accounts are specifically targeted by APTs because they enable broad access to critical assets. When a privileged account is compromised, the attacker has the power to gain access to a vast amount of data, and their activity can be extremely hard to detect. The release of Revision 4 will prompt many agencies to focus on improving the security of privileged accounts.
CyberArk’s solutions can help agencies to effectively and efficiently meet the full range of requirements regarding privileged accounts. The solutions are enterprise-proven in large and mid-sized government and commercial organizations. CyberArk is the trusted expert in privileged account security and compliance.
Jump servers have emerged in recent years as a security best practice to create a separation between networks with different security requirements. Creating separation is strongly recommended to minimize the risk of a potential attacker accessing critical systems, but does the typical homegrown jump server really create a single, isolated control point? Does it really keep the attackers out? Learn how you can go the extra mile to enhance security with a next generation jump server, which closes the vulnerability holes that exist in the traditional jump server solution.
CyberArk’s Privileged Account Security Solution is a comprehensive solution for password management, continuous activity monitoring and compliance of privileged access to the OT/ICS environment. Using a common infrastructure, organizations can isolate, control and monitor all privileged sessions whether on servers, databases or virtual machines, providing both ease of management and unified reports for times of audit. This allows you to control and secure all privileged activity in a single solution.
The NERC advisory provides details on the best practice and recommended ways to secure interactive remote access into critical networks, and in this paper we demonstrated how CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution provides a solution for implementing the NERC recommendations.
