SecureAuth & CyberArk
CyberArk Privileged Account Security and SecureAuth
Every year, organizations spend millions of dollars on network and endpoint security, yet breaches continue to happen. To better protect themselves, organizations need to understand that most attacks involve the use of valid user credentials that have been compromised. Once attackers are inside your network, they use the credentials they have obtained to move laterally throughout the network and carry out their mission.
This is why securing identities has become today’s security perimeter — and why securing privileged credentials is particularly critical. In this new reality, authentication systems that are limited to a username and password, or even those that require just a second factor, are no longer sufficient to protect your data and applications.
The best protection against the use of stolen or otherwise compromised credentials is strong adaptive access controls that block attackers without disrupting legitimate users. SecureAuth has partnered with CyberArk to provide the industry’s most comprehensive solution to protect privileged accounts from misuse at the identity perimeter.
CyberArk Privileged Access Manager integrates seamlessly with SecureAuth’s adaptive and multi-factor authentication to ensure that only authorized users can access privileged accounts — protecting your network with minimal user disruption.
Specifically, SecureAuth adds a layer of strong authentication to CyberArk’s privileged account security, protecting access to privileged accounts with pre-authentication risk analysis, multi-factor authentication, and continuous authentication through behavioral biometrics. This additional layer of security does not disrupt the user experience — in fact, it enhances it by providing authorized privileged users with single sign-on access to applications and resources across the enterprise.
