FREMONT, CA: CyberArk, the leader in identity security, has recently announced important enhancements to its CyberArk Identity Security Platform, which will assist safeguard high-risk access and widen protection across cloud and hybrid environments. CyberArk’s comprehensive, flexible set of cloud-delivered products and shared services can help global organizations of all sizes achieve an unrivaled Zero Trust-based strategy to securing human and machine identities.

“CyberArk is a critical component of our Identity and Access Management strategy, which enables us to deliver on our company’s digital transformation goals,” said Tony DeAngelo, Assistant Vice President, Information Security, Encova Insurance. And like many organizations, were becoming more cloud-oriented, causing our CyberArk footprint to continue to grow and evolve as managing Identity Security and privileged access for our firm and partner organizations becomes even more vital.”

Attackers are increasingly targeting a rapidly expanding attack surface, where any user might have some level of privileged access, as digital transformation and cloud migration programs continue to accelerate. The attack path’s focus is on identity. According to the Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), 94 percent of businesses have had an identity-related breach. To help minimize security gaps, organizations must adapt their cybersecurity programs by taking a security-first, least privileged approach to identity-related risk.

The CyberArk Identity Security Platform, which focuses on privileged access management, gives customers a consistent and holistic approach to securing access for any user, across any type of application or system, from any location, on any device. Today’s new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings include:

CyberArk Dynamic Privileged Access: Significantly decreases the danger of standing access by granting just-in-time access to hybrid and cloud workloads, beginning with Windows and Linux Virtual Machines. Dynamic Privileged Access also comes with full auditing capabilities, so you can see who accessed what and when. Only CyberArk secures static and dynamic access while enforcing the least privilege constraints in hybrid and multi-cloud settings.

CyberArk Secure Web Sessions: Continuous monitoring, re-authentication enforcement, and isolation of malicious activities originating on user devices give extra levels of security to high-risk browser-based application access. Secure Web Sessions allows businesses to record and audit dangerous user behavior while preserving a seamless user experience in any web application.

CyberArk Lifecycle Management for Privileged Users: Customers may now expedite employee onboarding, including for individuals with privileged access, and meet audit and compliance needs more easily, thanks to an expansion of current capabilities. Lifecycle Management for Privileged Users can be integrated with existing systems or used in conjunction with HR-driven identity management solutions, giving businesses even more flexibility.
