SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE FOR FEDERAL AGENCIES
PROTECTING FEDERAL AGENCIES FROM ADVANCED THREATS
Federal government agencies, departments and critical infrastructure are frequent targets in today’s advanced attacks. Whether the goal is to compromise sensitive government data, steal personally identifiable information (PII) or disrupt normal operations, the increasing sophistication of attacks is making it more difficult to safeguard the Federal government’s cyber critical infrastructure.
To ensure the nation’s safety and the protection of vital information, the leadership in the White House, Congress and Department of Homeland Security have worked together to develop security mandates and regulations designed to secure agencies from both internal and external threats.
ENHANCE SECURITY BY MANAGING PRIVILEGED ACCESS FIRST
Privileged accounts, and the access they provide, represent the largest security vulnerabilities an organization faces today. Why are attackers inside and outside the enterprise zeroing in on privileged accounts?
PRIVILEGED ACCESS IS EVERYWHERE
Privileged accounts can be found in every networked device, database, application, and server on-premises, in cloud and ICS environments, and through the DevOps pipeline. Privileged users have the “keys to the kingdom” and, in the case of a cyberattack or data breach, privileged credentials can be used to cause catastrophic damage to a business.
PRIVILEGED ACCOUNTS ARE POWERFUL
Privileged accounts – human and machine – have all-powerful access to confidential data and systems. Privileged accounts can grant overly broad access rights, far beyond what is needed for the user to perform their job function, which makes them dangerous if they’re not managed effectively.
PRIVILEGE IS ANONYMOUS, UNMONITORED & UNREPORTED
Privileged accounts have shared administrative access, making their users anonymous. Privileged accounts go unmonitored and unreported and, therefore, unsecured. After initial access, attackers can obtain domain-level admin credentials within 3 days, and you may not discover it for the next 3 months.
PRIVILEGED ACCOUNTS ARE CHALLENGING TO MANAGE
Privileged access is pervasive throughout the organization and can be difficult to discover, secure and manage without the right tools. A PAM solution can help you locate your privileged accounts, eliminate credential theft and collect audit information.
MANAGE PRIVILEGED ACCESS WITH THE #1 LEADER
CyberArk is uniquely positioned to help Federal Agencies meet today’s security and compliance requirements.
The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution has achieved international Common Criteria certification by the National Information Association Partnership (NIAP).
The Common Criteria certification validates that the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution meets strict security requirements for U.S. National Security System (NSS) procurement. This certification is also used globally by organizations in 31 member countries to assess security solutions.
PART OF THE US DoD UC APL
The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution is part to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UCAPL).
This designation identifies products that have undergone a rigorous testing process conducted by the DoD that ensures acceptable levels of information assurance (IA) and interoperability (IO) capabilities.
CyberArk’s solution helps agencies comply with requirements related to the “Access Control”, “Audit and Accountability” and “Identification and Authentication” control families.
