In the hands of an external attacker or malicious insider, privileged accounts allow attackers to take full control of an organization’s IT infrastructure, disable security controls, steal confidential information, commit financial fraud and disrupt operations.

As a result, Center for Internet Security (CIS) modified their Critical Security Controls to move “Controlled Use of Administrative Privileges” from number 12 up to number 5.  CyberArk is a complete security solution that meets this control requirement by monitoring privileged accounts, auditing activities and generating alerts when threats are detected.

Designed from the ground up with a focus on security, CyberArk has developed a powerful, modular technology platform that provides the industry’s most comprehensive Privileged Account Security Solution. Each product can be managed independently or combined for a cohesive and complete solution for operating systems, databases, applications, hypervisors, network devices, security appliances and more. The solution is designed for on-premise, hybrid cloud and OT/SCADA environments.
