CyberArk has announced 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.
This release extends CyberArk’s technology leadership with the most comprehensive range of options to implement privileged access controls, from accounts secured with Just-in-Time access to those that are fully managed with complete audit by the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution from on-premises to the cloud.
“Security leaders are facing a dramatic increase in speed along two dimensions – the ability to spin up new and potentially vulnerable accounts in the cloud and the time it takes attackers to gain command and control once they’ve gained a foothold in an environment. Speed is critical and security leaders who leverage automation and intelligence will have more success protecting their organisations under these conditions. CyberArk delivers the industry’s most complete solution for managing privileged-related risk across hybrid environments while removing operational hurdles,” said Nir Gertner, Chief Security Strategist, CyberArk.
