CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the global leader in privileged access management, today kicked-off CyberArk Impact Live 2020, where CyberArk Chairman and CEO Udi Mokady outlined the company’s plan to develop an expanded approach to securing identities – one with privileged access management at its core.
Building on the recent acquisition of Idaptive, CyberArk laid out an Identity Security strategy that starts with Zero Trust and uses artificial intelligence to understand context and intent. This approach will help organizations dramatically reduce risk while providing a seamless user experience that will securely enable the business and support any device, application or user -- regardless of role or location.
“In today’s mobile, digital and cloud world, all identities can become privileged under certain conditions. If not properly secured, they can open doors for attackers to execute increasingly targeted attacks,” Mokady said during his keynote. “Because of this new reality, the traditional approach to managing and securing identities has become obsolete. The incorporation of the Idaptive technology helps CyberArk extend its foundational strengths in privileged access management, a critical layer to delivering a security-first strategy for protecting access by a range of human, application and machine identities, and the services they consume.”
CyberArk Adds Support for Idaptive Multi-Factor Authentication
As a first step, CyberArk today announced the ability to leverage Idaptive Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) across CyberArk products and services. While incorporating MFA in front of a privileged access management solution is a security best practice, Idaptive MFA adds risk-aware, intelligent and passwordless identity assurance controls that will offer CyberArk customers a streamlined, best-in-class authentication experience for access via the console.
The Idaptive solution uses machine learning to build a baseline profile for each identity, using specific contextual attributes that include location, system, network and time of access requests. It then assigns risk to each access request and generates dynamic policies that recognize and proactively act on risky access activity. This AI-powered approach eliminates friction that comes from repetitively requesting re-authentication every time a user attempts to access a system – balancing the requirements of a high degree of identity assurance with the desire to provide an excellent end user experience.
