CyberArk Privileged Account Security

The system is great for enterprise or larger IT departments or teams where temporary or full access may be given using privileged IDs. Requirements for needing local admin access is also eliminated which can help with specific Windows workstation related tasks. It can be very useful when working with remote teams or contractors who may need temporary access to a system when required.

If you have a small-to-large company looking for a SIEM solution that "does the job" and is easy to deploy/use, QRadar is your tool. If you're looking for a complex solution that supports integration with data-mining solutions (e.g. ELK), then you may need a different solution. Overall, QRadar fits the needs of 99% of the companies. It is one of the easiest SIEM solutions to deploy and use.

Pros

CyberArk Privileged Account Security

  • Automatically discover new servers on the network and take control of the local admin password by vaulting it and ensuring nobody knows the password. A different password on every server.
  • Automatically roll the password in a configurable manner - after each use, after a certain period of time, etc.
  • Track and govern sensitive account usage by ensuring only properly authorized users can access the vault and obtain the credentials and then monitor usage.

  • It allows us to have visibility to potential problems both on premise and in the cloud which was key as we have become a hybrid consumer.
  • It has automated monitoring which has allowed us to see threats faster and also allowed us to be proactive.
  • By having over 20,000 employees, QRadar has also allowed us to be aware of internal threats that are brought into the company by unsuspecting employees.

Cons

CyberArk Privileged Account Security

  • GUI - right now everything is on one page/dashboard. Some level of folder/Safe type view would be great
  • More options when storing passwords - especially for network based passwords
  • Better integrations with vendors like Cisco so that admins dont need to really get the password from the vault (think Last Pass type add on)

  • There is a steep learning curve compared to other platforms. Qradar is incredibly powerful but does require some homework.
  • There is a glaring lack of threat feed utilization outside of STIXX/TAXII which remains very limited at this time.
  • May require a considerable amount of tuning during deployment with very little "out of the box" offense information.

Customer support and technical support have always been great when we require assistance. Especially when we come across issues that we're not familiar with.

I've had many issues with QRadar, and the support would hear and respond to my question all the time (more so than in the case of IBM Resilient support). They were very quick to respond, were helpful, and provided remote access.

Alternatives Considered

CyberArk Privileged Account Security

It is known as one of the safest products in the market. It has good support and is also available as on-premise. You can run it virtually on VMWare (and probably on other hypervisors as well). You can have a second instance on bare metal and that makes it a very safe system.

I previously used AlienVault OSSIM in my former job and I can really tell that QRadar is a much more powerful SIEM as compared to AlienVault OSSIM. In QRadar, you can perform advanced queries that make use of AQL. This makes my investigation a lot easier. One of the things I truly adore in QRadar is that you can perform queries to see all the events for an offense or multiple offenses. You can also see which of the events were seen on an offense in the Log activity view. I think the only thing I liked in AlienVault is their UI, QRadar may need to up its game on that but overall a really great SIEM solution.

Return on Investment

CyberArk Privileged Account Security

  • Decreased the probability of an external cyber attack to privileged accounts..
  • Management can control privileged account life cycle management more effectively
  • Recording privileged sessions allows our organization to play back exactly the point of a breach or malicious behavior
  • Automated system to manage and verify passwords, as privileged accounts are constantly created and deleted
  • Automatic PWD change functionality will substantially decrease probability of PWD theft or misuse.

  • ROI is a very tough calculation to achieve when it comes to cyber events. The reason is that how do you rate damage to the brand e.g. Target. Loss of confidence in a brand can easily lead to a company going bankrupt - how, do you measure that?
  • QRadar is in line with most other SIEM's in its category in TCO.
  • QRadar will lower the TCO and ROI of a security team's cost, due to the ability to perform most of the investigation and remediation recommendation.
