  • CyberArk

    A complete solution to protect, monitor, detect, alert, and respond to privileged account activity

    Privileged accounts represent the largest security vulnerability an organization faces today. In the hands of an external attacker or malicious insider, privileged accounts allow attackers to take full control of an organization’s IT infrastructure, disable security controls, steal confidential information, commit financial fraud and disrupt operations. Stolen, abused or misused privileged credentials are used in nearly all breaches. With this growing threat, organizations need controls put in place to proactively protect against, detect and respond to in-progress cyber attacks before they strike vital systems and compromise sensitive data.

    CyberArk is the trusted expert in privileged account security. Designed from the ground up with a focus on security, CyberArk has developed a powerful, modular technology platform that provides the industry’s most comprehensive Privileged Account Security Solution. Each product can be managed independently or combined for a cohesive and complete solution for operating systems, databases, applications, hypervisors, network devices, security appliances and more. The solution is designed for on-premise, hybrid cloud and OT/SCADA environments.

    The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution is based on CyberArk Shared Technology Platform™, which combines an isolated vault server, a unified policy engine, and a discovery engine to provide scalability, reliability and unmatched security for privileged accounts.

  • Axiomatics

    Axiomatics brings next-generation Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) for a broad range of application environments.

    Access control has evolved to meet the changing security challenges organizations face in the digital age. Attribute Based Access Control is quickly becoming the standard model for organizations confronted by the need for a robust and flexible solution to today’s increasingly complex security demands. Unlike earlier access control models, ABAC provides a multi-dimensional system that through its use of attributes and policies prevents role explosion, increases scalability, enables relationships, eliminates Segregation of Duty conflicts, and externalizes authorization for ease of management and control. Additionally, it allows organizations to comply with an ever-growing body of regulations in an increasingly demanding regulatory environment.

    Axiomatics Policy Server (APS) is the most complete solution available for enterprise-wide roll out of Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC). With three different types of authorization services combined in one, it handles any and every type of access control requirements.

  • IBM Security Directory Suite

  • IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager

    Privileged Identity Manager helps thwart insider threat by tracking the use of user credentials who have elevated access privileges, allowing organizations to centrally manage and audit privileged users across systems, applications, and platforms to help protect sensitive assets and maintain compliance. Privileged Identity Manager includes entitlement to IBM Security Identity Manager V7.0 and IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On V8.2.1 capabilities for licensed privileged users, which can be installed separately and integrated with the Privileged Identify Manager Virtual Appliance.

    Privileged Identity Manager delivers a single solution to help secure, automate, and track the use of privileged identities. Based on underlying IBM Security Identity Manager and IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On capabilities for licensed privileged users, the solution delivers privileged user entitlement provisioning, strong password management policies, and support for all IBM Security Identity Manager adapter endpoints. Privileged Identity Manager helps thwart insider threat by tracking the use of user credentials with elevated access privileges. It also provides:

    • An encrypted credential vault with controlled check out and check in of shared IDs for entitled users.
    • Automated login with available strong authentication that delivers an additional level of assurance while hiding the current password from the user.
    • Password update capability, after use and upon check in, to help ensure passwords are not reused outside the governance structure.
    • User activity logging that contains an audit trail on use of privileged credentials.
    • A Privileged Session Recorder option, which can record all user activity on the privileged endpoints, with subsequent playback by auditors or IT management for audit or troubleshooting purposes.
    • A new option, IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager for Applications, which helps secure application to application credentials and tracks their use.

    It is not just privileged users that have elevated access rights. Applications and scripts also use credentials for privileged access. For example, an application may need a privileged credential to make database calls or a script may need privileged credentials to access an application. Typically, these sources are trusted by the target resource and can bypass stronger user authentication mechanisms such as biometrics. In addition, the credentials used by these source programs are often hardcoded into the application or script, sometimes even in clear text. This can leave them vulnerable to exposure and can lead to unauthorized use. Furthermore, these hardcoded credentials are rarely, if ever changed, bypassing usual password management processes.

    With Privileged Identity Manager for Applications, applications, scripts, and programs can leverage the same secure credential checkout mechanism employed for human users. This eliminates the need for hardcoded passwords in applications and scripts, and allows governance of those application credentials under password management policies.

    As a further safeguard, every application instance (script or individual application instance) must be preregistered by an authorized Privileged Identity Manager user in order to assure accountability for every system credential. Every nonhuman Privileged Identity Manager user must be associated with a known human user. During the registration process, certain characteristics of the requesting application instance are saved and later authenticated at credential request time. This helps assure that only known applications and scripts, with known human sponsors, can access the credentials.

    A virtual appliance deployment, which can speed time to value, while supporting optional integration to a separate Identity Manager environment to simplify and optimize the maintenance of each environment.
