CyberArk PAS is a highly adaptable, highly secure access management solution. However, there is a steep learning curve with the program and users have noted issues with reporting and troubleshooting. It is also an expensive program, best suited to enterprise level companies.
CyberArk Core Privileged Access Security is a unified, policy-based access manager that is highly adaptable can be deployed via SaaS or on-site, making it suitable for remote, hybrid, or on premises environments. The main features it delivers is: managing privileged credentials, isolate and monitor user sessions, threat detection and response, management of edge devices, remote access to PAM, and multi-factor authentication and single sign-on capabilities.
PAS isolates users’ browser sessions, protecting that session from becoming an attack vector for potential malware infections. Users do not directly connect to target systems at any point. At the same time, PAS also records all activity that takes place during these sessions with events safely stored. Unusual or risky behavior is flagged for admins to assess and act.
Stores and reports all privileged credentials in use by human or non-human users. Admins can pre-set policies for complex passwords, user access, and the frequency of password rotations. The latter aims to improve security.
Devices on the fringe of the network, such as devices being used remotely, are subject to the same level of security and have the same policies applied. Account credentials on end devices will also be rotated per pre-set policies.
Monitors and alerts admins to unmanaged privileged accounts and credentials. This feature will scan and flag risky or unusual behavior via remediation capabilities.
CyberArk PAS has been noted as having a learning curve, with users highlighting that the program needs a skilled team to set it up, with technical expertise in areas where the program is being deployed. Upgrades can be difficult to action. Managing group privileges can also be tricky.
The admin console, however, is user friendly. Once initial set up pains are out of the way, it’s an easy to use tool that stores all credentials in one place without the need to hardcode passwords or employ authentication tokens, and allows for a access and approval system.
