U.S. Dept of Homeland Security CDM Program

CyberArk Privileged Account Security solutions address the Least Privilege and Infrastructure Integrity requirements included in Phase 2 of the United States Federal Government Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is continuously looking for better ways to increase the security posture of federal agencies with guidelines such as those in the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program. The CDM program (http://www.dhs.gov/cdm) covers multiple areas of cybersecurity with the goal of providing the tools and solutions best fit for federal departments and agencies to mitigate cybersecurity risks.

The first phase of the program was focused on endpoint integrity. In April of 2014, the DHS published an RFI for Phase 2 of the program focusing on Least Privilege and Infrastructure Integrity.

CyberArk solutions address the challenges in the following functional areas of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security CDM Program Phase 2:

  • Manage Security-Related Behavior – CyberArk solutions empower federal agencies to quickly identify and disrupt abnormal behaviors with customized behavioral analytics technology that detects and alerts on abnormal, suspicious privileged account behavior
  • Manage Credentials and Authentication – CyberArk solutions help federal agencies secure and manage privileged credentials with a multi-layered solution that fully protects, manages and monitors privileged passwords and SSH keys in a tamper-proof digital vault
  • Manage Account Access/Manage Privileges – CyberArk solutions help IT and security teams achieve the balance between security and operational needs by enabling end-user productivity while controlling privileges for security reasons
