New CyberArk Features for Cloud Workload Security in Identity Platform

News | 20.10.2023

CyberArk announced new capabilities for securing access to cloud services and modern infrastructure for all users, based on the company’s risk-based intelligent privilege controls. Included are major enhancements to the CyberArk Secure Cloud Access solution, which provides just-in-time access with zero standing privileges to cloud management consoles and services running in multi-cloud environments. The new security controls enable secure access to every layer of cloud environments, while causing no disruption or change to the way developers and other users access cloud services. More>>

Part of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform, Secure Cloud Access elevates permissions just-in-time to roles scoped for least privilege access, enabling cloud developers and administrators to maintain velocity while reducing the risks of credential theft and excessive access. New capabilities include:

  • The ability to identify IAM misconfiguration risks in multi-cloud environments.
  • New context-based, automatic approval workflows for high-risk access to cloud services. These workflows can be easily customized to meet governance objectives via no-code identity orchestration and automation capabilities within the CyberArk platform. Tight integration with IT Service Management (ITSM) and ChatOps tooling facilitates greater adoption from engineers and allows cloud security teams to rapidly and securely approve time-sensitive access requests in service outages. CyberArk is the only identity security vendor to offer this capability.
  • Additional support for delegated administration, allowing for approvals to be addressed on a team or department level. A new integration between CyberArk Vendor Privileged Access Manager and Secure Cloud Access allows third party vendors to securely access cloud services with zero standing privileges – from the same unified platform.
  • Expanded coverage for just-in-time access to support short-lived infrastructure workloads in Google Cloud Platform, enabling more multi-cloud deployments.
  • Regional datacenter coverage added in Australia, Canada, UK, Germany and India to meet demand for these capabilities.
