Cybersecurity initiatives are among the top priorities of most organizations, and for good reason. After all, even the most established enterprises can be hit with a cyberattack, and the financial, reputational, and legal repercussions can be catastrophic.

Privilege Access Management: Key to Higher Security

For many businesses, falling victim to a data breach is no longer a question of if but when. This is because the threat landscape today is littered with various attack vectors that it’s difficult to see where the next strike may be coming from. One thing’s for sure, though: exploiting privilege access accounts in some way has oftentimes proven to be a reliable route for hackers to infiltrate an enterprise’s network.

What organizations should understand however, is that with security breaches, it’s not always a simple case of outside attackers finding their way in. As in the case of the Anthem medical data breach last year (2020), sometimes, all it takes is the fall of one privileged account—whether due to malicious intent or sheer negligence, to open up the proverbial floodgates for cybercriminals.

Authorized to perform many mission critical functions that are not accessible to the average employee, a privileged user account is a very powerful asset in any organization. Securing privileged access is thus, key to mitigating risk and helping ensure that customer data and other confidential information are kept away from the prying eyes of malicious hackers.

This is where the importance of Privileged Access Management (PAM) comes in.

There are many ways to effectively manage privilege accounts and credentials. Some businesses use manual methods, while others implement PAM solutions. Then there’s also CyberArk.

Enforce Least Privilege with CyberkArk

CyberArk covers a wide range of services tailored to assist enterprises in deploying, implementing, and managing security projects that reduce cyber risk and achieve optimal return for your IT security investments. Their PAM services are designed to secure what’s considered to be among your most valuable assets—privileged access accounts.

Considered an overall industry leader in Identity Security, and particularly, in the Privileged Access Management space, CyberArk applies the principle of least privilege in protecting privileged user accounts to minimize the chances that these are compromised.

With CyberArk solutions, your organization stands to benefit from:

At the heart of every solid defense is strong cybersecurity. Deployed in a cloud environment as a SaaS or in traditional on-premise data centers, CyberArk’s comprehensive security offerings provide proactive protection against internal and external threats with these capabilities:

  • Privileged credential management
  • Session isolation and monitoring
  • Threat detection and response
  • Nomadic device management
  • Remote access to PAM
  • Adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO).

Maximize the Potential of CyberArk PAM with Adapture

More often than not, Privileged Access Management services can only go as far as how well they are used and managed. Solutions like CyberArk, while not overly complex, do require considerable technical and product knowledge in the installation and implementation stages, as well as in the upgrade and maintenance processes that may be needed every two to three years.

Not every enterprise can maintain an in-house IT team that has both the technical capability and the time to focus on onboarding new IT applications. The good news is, you really don’t have to. Your organization doesn’t have to dedicate valuable IT manpower and resources to learning how to integrate CyberArk PAM into your current environment. Why? Because Adapture can do it for you.

With our decades-long experience in providing IT management and support, and facilitating integrations into customer environments, we can ensure that you’ll get the most out of your CyberArk products. Plus, allowing Adapture to manage your solution would only cost you a fraction of what you would otherwise be spending if you put a dedicated IT team on the job.

Leave CyberArk management to us, and free up your internal teams to focus on your core business.
