According to CyberArk, migrating workloads to the cloud is a top priority for many organisations and this trend, coupled with the need to securely support increasingly remote workforces, has created new challenges – particularly for protecting against increasingly identity-centric attacks.
CyberArk says AWS customers can now easily access even more of its Identity Security SaaS-based offerings, which deliver “greater deployment flexibility and simplicity, along with rapid time to value and risk reduction”.
CyberArk’s Identity Security offerings allow AWS customers to remove excessive privileges and permissions on endpoint devices, servers and throughout their cloud environments. Removing unnecessary privileges helps organisations disrupt the attack path by limiting lateral movement and stopping privilege escalation.
CyberArk lists its solutions as:
- CyberArk Cloud Entitlements Manager is the industry’s first privilege-based, artificial intelligence-powered service designed to strengthen the security of cloud environments by identifying and removing excessive cloud permissions, and mitigating the risks related to permission sprawl or privilege abuse. Additionally, Cloud Entitlements Manager recently introduced capabilities allowing customers to onboard and analyse IAM permissions across their entire AWS Organisations service. Cloud Entitlements Manager customers can now easily connect accounts and organisational units within their AWS Organisations to identify and remediate excessive IAM permissions in specific AWS accounts.
- CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager is a critical component for securing endpoints, especially in modern remote work models. It removes barriers to enforcing least privilege and allows organisations to block and contain attacks at the endpoint to reduce the risk of information being stolen or encrypted and held for ransom.
- CyberArk Workforce Identity helps secure remote workforces by proactively protecting users' access to cloud and on-premises applications, endpoints, VPNs and other critical resources. Workforce Identity features Single Sign-On, adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication and Lifecycle Management capabilities.
“Embracing cloud, remote work and other digital transformation initiatives cannot be a tradeoff with security,” said Clarence Hinton, chief strategy officer, CyberArk.
“There are clear use cases here that organisations need to address, and they need the tools that allow them to securely meet their business objectives. With expanded access to CyberArk Identity Security solutions, AWS customers can move forward with confidence, reducing excessive permissions and containing threats before they negatively impact the business.”
