CyberArk launches SaaS portfolio for privileged access management

22 Jul 2019

CyberArk has announced new services and enhancements to its portfolio of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings for privileged access security.

CyberArk aims to make it simple and easy for cloud-first organisations and those embracing digital transformation to consume, use and manage privileged access security solutions, especially in hybrid cloud environments.

CyberArk chairman and CEO Udi Mokady says, “Privileged access security is foundational to effective cybersecurity programs.

“As customers increasingly operate in SaaS and cloud-first environments, it’s critical for CyberArk to build an understanding of the attack surface and deliver innovative security solutions that are built specifically for hybrid environments.”

 Paving the way for SaaS in Privileged Access Security

CyberArk is aiming to set a new standard for delivering SaaS-based security solutions with:

  • Zero Trust remote vendor access with CyberArk Alero – CyberArk Alero is a solution for mitigating risks associated with remote vendors accessing critical systems through CyberArk. CyberArk Alero also improves operational efficiencies and productivity by making it simple and easy for organisations to provision and manage remote vendor access. This new SaaS-based offering provides Zero Trust access for remote vendors connecting to the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution for complete visibility and control of privileged activities. CyberArk combines Zero Trust access, biometric authentication and just-in-time provisioning without the use of VPNs, agents or passwords in one solution. Compared to traditional VPN solutions, CyberArk Alero cuts the onboarding process for remote vendors down from hours to minutes.
     
  • Just-in-time elevation and access with CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager – CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager is a SaaS-based solution that reduces the risk of unmanaged administrative access on Windows and Mac endpoints. With Endpoint Privilege Manager’s just-in-time capabilities, organisations can mitigate risk and reduce operational friction by allowing admin-level access to Windows and Mac endpoints on-demand for a specific period of time with a full audit log and the ability to revoke access as necessary. CyberArk is a privileged access security vendor to provide just-in-time access across cloud and on-premises environments, in data centres, and for every endpoint.

Additions to CyberArk Privilege Cloud, CyberArk’s privileged access security as a service offering, aims to enable mid-sized organisations to improve their ability to continuously discover and manage privileged credentials across the enterprise, and record and audit privileged sessions to meet compliance requirements.

Support for over 150 out-of-the-box integrations for credential and privileged session management via the CyberArk Marketplace makes CyberArk Privilege Cloud easy to integrate into a customer’s existing technology stack. 

CyberArk Alero and enhancements to CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager and CyberArk Privilege Cloud will be available this quarter.
