Release Highlights:

Improvements to Discovery Service

New! Windows discovery 

Discovery service keeps developing and just released an enhanced solution for Windows discovery scans. This solution will replace the existing Windows scan capability within a few months. The benefits of the new functionality include per-domain or machine list scan types, use of the scan “rerun” option, new scan APIs and utilization of the recently announced Discovery Rules , which enables a more intelligent, thorough and flexible tool for automating privileged account discovery and onboarding, enhancing security and improving user experience.

Discovery Rules enhancements

Ruleset import and export
By using the new ruleset import and export capabilities, customers can easily start building new credential discovery rulesets or efficiently copy and reuse rules in different environments.

Discovered account activities
Now, customers have more visibility into the activities of discovered privileged accounts. They can follow information or errors related to automatic account onboarding and fix or adjust them accordingly.

Support for MongoDB access

CyberArk Privilege Cloud now supports secure native access to MongoDB database with the DPA component with Zero Standing Privileges (ZSP) and vaulted credentials. This joins the existing support for MySQL, SQL server, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Db2.

Improvements to PAM for Windows

Video recording of Windows sessions with the DPA component 

With this release, customers can satisfy audit and compliance requirements by automatically recording Windows sessions brokered through the DPA component with either vaulted credentials or ZSP. The recordings are securely stored in the CyberArk service and are available for download from the Session Monitoring view via the Audit service tile. This joins the audit service’s existing support for SSH command audits for Linux, SQL query audits for databases, and kubectl commands for Kubernetes.

Note: Video recording of Windows sessions remains available for sessions brokered and managed through the Privileged Session Manager (PSM) component. The Dynamic Privileged Access component reduces TCO and PAM admin overhead and offers a less intrusive deployment with a quick installment of a lightweight connector.

Windows access with the DPA component via the CyberArk Privilege Cloud portal

With this release, users can utilize the existing and familiar Accounts page to connect directly to Windows targets with sessions managed by the DPA component. Users can connect to a Windows target with either the PSM or DPA component by using a simple configuration and clicking the 'Connect' button.

The connection is enabled based on a downloaded RDP file and the selected value, PSM or DPA. This ability allows for a lower footprint in connections to Windows targets from the web portal, in addition to the native connection that is already supported.

License Consumption page for CyberArk Privilege Cloud

CyberArk Privilege Cloud version 14.2 introduces a new License Consumption page, designed to provide customers with a comprehensive view of their license usage and management. This will allow customers to track their license consumption in real time, maximizing the value and ensuring the adoption of their CyberArk investment. 

The new page covers the license consumption of CyberArk PAM and CyberArk Identity. In addition, we added a new API that exposes the consumption of CyberArk PAM licenses.

This data center joins our existing data centers for session management with the DPA component in Montreal (Canada), Mumbai (India), Frankfurt (Germany), London (UK), Singapore, Sydney (Australia), Tokyo (Japan), and Virginia (USA).

HTTP Basic Authentication for web application support for Central Policy Manager (CPM) plugins

Version 14.2 introduces HTTP Basic Authentication support for creating CPM plugins to manage privileged credentials used to access web applications. This enables secure authentication and management of privileged accounts using HTTP Basic Authentication credentials. This update is available to customers running CPM version 11.5 and above and offers increased flexibility and seamless integration with various authentication mechanisms, enhancing security and usability.

SAP NetWeaver Platform improvement

Users can now leverage these properties to customize and optimize their SAP environments further, enabling improved efficiency, streamlined processes, and enhanced management capabilities. This empowers users to tailor their SAP setups according to specific organizational requirements, ultimately contributing to a more robust and tailored solution.
