We had our first integration with CyberArk in 2016. One of our very early adopters, a CISO for a large telecommunications company, realized that Guardicore Centra was becoming a critical part of his security infrastructure and decided to integrate the two products.
The CISO understood that one of the biggest security threats for his organization was the misuse of privileged accounts with elevated permissions on IT systems. He decided to use CyberArk with Guardicore in order to manage privileged accounts and protect his critical assets. Guardicore secured access to critical assets via micro-segmentation and detection capabilities, and CyberArk managed the privileged access on these systems.
Since then, we have added additional features such as identity-based policies to provide a stronger overall solution, and many other customers have benefited from these integrated capabilities.
I am happy to update you that this integration of Guardicore Centra security platform and the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution has recently been made available on the CyberArk Marketplace, helping our joint customers accelerate their ability to meet compliance requirements and reduce security risk without introducing additional operational complexity.
By providing the Guardicore plug-in via the CyberArk Marketplace, customers can now more easily evolve their privileged access management programs. Our integration enables CyberArk customers to protect their hybrid cloud and data center while maintaining strong privileged access controls.
As a CyberArk C3 Alliance member, Guardicore will continue to work alongside CyberArk to deliver value to shared customers through an integrated plug-in, as part of their security stack.
Privileged access is pervasive and provides attackers the “keys to the IT kingdom.”
It is widely recognized that nearly all damaging cyber-attacks involve privileged account compromise. Attackers are then able to exploit this legitimate privileged access to establish a foothold and make lateral moves across enterprise IT infrastructure. Additionally, without least privilege, internal users might abuse their access rights. By integrating the capabilities of Guardicore Centra with the CyberArk solution, customers can be better positioned to detect and stop lateral movement using both software-defined segmentation and privileged access management.
