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.
Secure Remote Access
Most leading institutions have 200-300 high-risk, third-party relationships at a time.*
Motivated attackers leverage third-party access points to gain entry to the target organization and launch an attack. Understanding common remote vendor access types and associated vulnerabilities is the first step in mitigating this risk. Download this white paper to learn how to identify vulnerabilities to your organization and how to secure privileged accounts and thwart targeted attackers. Once secured, remote vendor access drives business continuity, efficiency and productivity without introducing significant new risk.

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.
