    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.

    Azure Active Directory

    If you are opening a shop and you need software to get the ball rolling compared to Google. Microsoft is the go-to vendor in my opinion. You can get your active directory services, mail, and collaboration tools like teams and offices from one vendor. Anyone with minimal knowledge of IT can actually configure all of these services to get you up to speed. The product is very versatile so in the future if you would like to have cloud servers and services this product have you covered. As your organization grows you can easily integrate the best MFA solutions with Azure AD to keep your organization safe. This is not the product that you should invest in if your organization does not have that many windows devices. For instance, if your company owns Macs other than products like MS Office, Share Point, etc you don't need to get Azure active directory.

    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.

    Azure Active Directory

    • Conditional Access -- this is one of the biggest tools that any admin needs when it comes to securing when, where, and how users are accessing information. Especially if the information contains sensitive data types.
    • Multi-factor Authentication -- we have all our employees configured for MFA. This is incredibly easy to configure with Azure, as well as defining when MFA should be used through Conditional Access.
    • Audit Logs -- being able to track and identify a user's activity is pretty critical, especially when in incident response mode.

    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)

    Azure Active Directory

    • The UI can be cumbersome to use - bulk edits for instance are best handled using powershell.
    • Documentation can be hard to find when integrating AD into web apps
    • Some settings in AD can be confusing with no obvious explanation - for instance, setting up custom scopes for an application is confusing.

    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.

    Microsoft has offered Azure Active Directory as a solution for a couple of decades now, so they have seen and anticipated almost any issue that an organization may face and can therefore help. The cloud offering of Azure Active Directory offers some additional "self healing" or monitoring services that can minimize the need for a service call. However, as with most large companies supporting a fast growing market, there may be some gaps in service knowledge (and particularly processing) from the front line / tier one staff as they follow a corporate script at first contact.

    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.

    Azure Active Directory

    In our particular scenario, we chose [Microsoft] Azure Active Directory because it has integration with tools and applications we use on a day to day basis, such as inTune, Autopilot, Office 365, Exchange Online, Dynamics 365, just to named a few.
