CyberArk Help Risk Reduction for Customers

CyberArk has become synonymous with privileged access management. They have released a state-of-the-art program called CyberArk Blueprint for Privileged Access Management Success. This program is designed to provide a phased and future-proof approach that is measurable to reducing risk.

CyberArk is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts. The company specializes in privileged account security systems used in energy, healthcare, retail, financial services, and government markets.

Using combined experiences between CyberArk Labs and Red Team, they have figured out that almost every attack that occurs follows the same types of patterns when involving compromising privileged credentials.

With these patterns in mind, the guiding principles behind the CyberArk Blueprint were born.

  • Prevent credential theft
  • Limit the escalation and abuse of privilege
  • Stop the lateral and vertical movements

The aid in the success of this program, CyberArk is offering templates and custom-designed roadmaps for all sizes of organizations. This includes regulated and non-regulated organizations so that they can expand their privileged access strategies.

Preventing the theft of critical credentials is the first step in stopping internal and external risks. Using CyberArk Blueprint, network takeovers are blocked thanks to session isolation, theft detection, removal of hard-coded credentials, and theft blocking strategies. This protects privileged access from humans and applications.

Credential boundaries are set to break the cyber attack chain. This is to stop the treat of non-trusted devices up to cloud consoles that could compromise the privileged access of an organization.

Making a possible attack area smaller in the process, CyberArk Blueprint uses a strong analytic to adapt responses and implement strong privilege controls. These stop the abuse from outside sources.

Nir Gertner, the chief security strategist for CyberArk, states that the new program is simple and comprehensive all at the same time. It helps in reducing potential risks and helps an organization address its biggest liabilities in as little time as possible. This helps reduce the risk of privileged access compromise.
