CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution v.10.8 Debuts
March 8, 2019
introduced new capabilities to simplify the continuous discovery and
protection of privileged accounts in cloud environments. The CyberArk
Privileged Access Security Solution v10.8 is the first-of-its-kind to
automate detection, alerting and response for unmanaged and
potentially-risky Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts. This version also
features new industry-leading Just-in-Time capabilities that deliver
flexible user access to cloud-based or on-premises Windows systems.
•Continuous Privileged Account Discovery: Further advancing its cloud security capabilities, including the automatic onboarding of AWS instances, CyberArk now offers the only privileged access security solution that identifies privileged accounts in AWS – such as unmanaged Identity and Access Management (IAM) users (including Shadow Admins), and EC2 instances and accounts. Organizations can now track AWS credentials everywhere they’re created – as they’re created – and speed up the on-boarding process for these unmanaged accounts.
•Automated Privileged Exploit Detection and Response: CyberArk raises the bar for threat detection and response in the cloud with the ability to send prioritized alerts on potentially risky behavior such as activities that bypass the vault, Access Key theft or mismanagement. Only CyberArk is also able to quickly take control over these risky accounts by initiating an automatic Access Key re-creation or rotation to dramatically improve risk mitigation.
•Simplified Deployment in AWS Environments: Expanding existing capabilities for securing cloud infrastructure, customers can now streamline the deployment of the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution to AWS with AMIs for all core components including vaulting, session management and threat analytics. This advancement makes it easier than ever to align privileged access security with digital transformation
•Just-in-Time Access with Flexible
Provisioning Options: Building on CyberArk’s Just-in-Time provisional
access to Windows servers, this release features a new ability for the
administrator to configure the amount of access time granted to Windows
systems, whether cloud-based or on-premises. This enables organizations
to significantly reduce operational friction for end–users and mitigate
the risk of unfettered privileged access.
