Improvements include:

  • Privileged Session Manager (PSM) enhancements

Release highlights include:

Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)

With BYOK functionality, CyberArk Privilege Cloud customers on the CyberArk Identity Security Platform Shared Services can host, manage and revoke the encryption keys for secrets and recordings in CyberArk Privilege Cloud by using APIs, enabling complete control of the access to that data. This is an essential capability for customers in heavily regulated industries such as finance. BYOK allows customers to revoke CyberArk's access to the encryption key at any time, which disables our ability to decrypt the stored data until the customer renews the access to the key.

Connector Management – Automatic CPM Prerequisite Checks

Customers can now perform CPM prerequisite checks automatically via the Connector Management service for improved operational efficiency when installing or upgrading CPM components. Previously, admins had to download and run a script to perform the checks.

CyberArk Privileged Session Manager (PSM) Enhancements

  • Simpler CyberArk PSM upgrade with automatic AppLocker configuration merger
    With this release, customers get an automatic merger of changes in their PSMConfigureAppLocker.xml file during the upgrade of CyberArk PSM. This simplifies processes and allows customers to keep their configurations and approved applications.
  •  Simultaneous CyberArk PSM audit of keystrokes, window titles and SQL commands
    Monitored sessions that run through the solution now allow simultaneous monitoring of keystrokes, window titles, and SQL commands (where applicable). Previously, administrators had to pick a single attribute to audit in these sessions. These expanded capabilities help organizations provide richer, more detailed reports to satisfy audit and compliance requirements. 
    • Over 160 customers voted for this enhancement request.
