Privileged session management for Unix systems

CyberArk Software : 25 January, 2013  (New Product)
Cyber-Ark is now providing a privileged session management system that is available for securing systems based on the Unix platform
Privileged session management for Unix systems

Cyber-Ark Software has announced the release of its new SSH Proxy solution that secures, audits, and reports on all privileged SSH activity in UNIX environments.  The new solution, available as part of Cyber-Ark’s Privileged Session Management (PSM) suite, monitors and records command-level activity, protects against malware-based attacks and provides real-time intelligence on malicious activity without changing SSH session workflows.

Organisations are recognising the connection between privileged accounts and internal threats and cyber attacks.  Cyber-Ark's solutions are uniquely designed to protect these powerful privileged accounts from both malicious and unintentional access.  The availability of PSM SSH Proxy serves to further reduce an organisation’s "attack surface" by limiting the scope of what privileged users are allowed to do within UNIX environments.  PSM SSH Proxy is a native solution that does not disrupt the administrator’s existing workflow in UNIX/Linux and network environments using SSH or Telnet.

“Protecting and auditing privileged accounts is now a mandatory first step to provide security, as well as to meet compliance and audit requirements driven by targeted cyber attacks and  other threats from internal users,” said Roy Adar, vice president of product management, Cyber-Ark Software.  “Cyber-Ark’s new PSM SSH proxy solution extends the ease of use of our market leading, integrated privileged identity management and privileged session management solution to the UNIX environment.  There no longer needs to be a compromise between security and usability when protecting privileged access in UNIX/Linux and network environments.”

Cyber-Ark’s PSM SSH Proxy solution isolates the administrator’s workstation from the target server or device, routing all administrative traffic to come through a jump server, which serves as a single control point preventing attackers from bypassing the privileged account protection and audit system.  Centralised policy management ensures that all systems comply with relevant regulations while providing organisations with leading incident response and security operations tools.  The solution expands the PSM Suite’s ability to seamlessly integrate into SIEM systems and rapidly provide real-time alerts while precisely identifying the users and activities performed during a privileged session.
