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.

Data Governance is well suited to areas where there is a requirement to control user access and privileges to unorganised data, if an organisation is taking on the challenge of a data classification project then this is a great tool for finding out what data is out in the organisation. Some additional modules allow information owners and approvers to authorise user access through a web portal cutting down on a manual process and lets profile administration be auditable.

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.

  • Searching for account permissions is much easier and granular with Varonis over normal AD users and computers
  • Having alerting when group policies are changed has been a big security group win
  • Identifying sensitive data such as PII and SOX data has also been a major win for our Organization

Cons

CyberArk Privileged Account Security

  • I'm not sure what could be done differently. There are some things that were once an issue that are no longer an issue. For instance, creating a short cut on the desktop for RDP through CyberArk. Since the upgrade and updates, we are now able to save shortcuts to our desktop.

  • The web interface is somewhat limited in terms of functionality
  • More licenses are required for additional features. This increases the cost to implement.
  • Customized reporting is lacking.

I wish the cost was a little bit lower and increase functionality and features would give it 10/10.

At the time of our purchase Stealth Bits did not have the same functionality that we initially wanted, so Varonis was the better option and across the available modules again Varonis could cover more future use areas. As of now Stealth Bits has really caught up and as they do not operate an agent logic of data capture can be a lot easier and quicker to install.
