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

[Microsoft] Azure Active Directory is perfect for single sign on. We have all our SaaS applications integrated with it. Also, the opportunity to have a single place for all the Microsoft Applications and Saas Applications using one account.Sometimes, the hybrid configuration is not appropriated for some internal non windows applications, due to the complexity.

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

  • There are a lot of features, so it can get confusing to get to where you want to go
  • Some areas do not offer as much granularity as desired
  • Hard to find certain features that are synonymous with on-premises Active Directory

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

I've worked with both Okta and Auth0 at various clients. Consistently, we find that Azure Active Directory provides a more seamless experience, better integration with IT tooling, and a more developer-friendly experience. In the past Azure AD has lacked some of the customization capabilities that Okta and Auth0 provide, but that has changed (especially with External Identities).

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.

Azure Active Directory

  • AAD has saved my organization a lot of time in user setups, restoring mailboxes or individual messages, auditing logins/logoffs or data changes and running reports.
  • It added functionality we did not previously have, such as reporting on user behavior in their systems (what they work on and what applications are used).
  • My IT Support Department has benefited greatly from adding AAD by being able to see software update needs for each workstation, managing startup items running in the system, checking versions of definitions and policies applied to each workstation and much more.
