Volkswagen rolls out CyberArk’s Privileged Account Security Solution

4th December 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, December 4, 2013: Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, part of the Volkswagen AG group has implemented CyberArk’s privileged account security solution to optimise its password management. As part of a security infrastructure project, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Hanover, Germany, has launched CyberArk’s Privileged Identity & Privileged Session Management suites to manage non-personalised privileged user accounts automatically, ensure compliance with uniform password policies, and maintain a central, auditable password repository.

Currently in the first stage of deployment, the system is integrated with the company’s servers running multiple operating systems including Windows, Unix and Linux. Firm plans exist for expansion to further target systems. Databases are set to follow later this year, and the CyberArk solution is slated to be rolled out to virtual systems, service accounts and manufacturing systems in the future.

CyberArk partner Computacenter is supporting the implementation of the system and its integration in the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles infrastructure. In addition to integrating new systems, the IT service provider is also training staff to ensure a smooth transition.

Juan Ramos Rincon of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles IT Services Department, said, “The CyberArk solution has shown itself to be an ideal interface between corporate regulatory frameworks and the managers of our IT landscapes. We can now offer IT managers an out-of-the-box solution that meets the full set of requirements, reducing their workload and giving them security in their actions.”

Jochen Koehler, regional director, DACH, CyberArk, said, “Managing administrative accounts in complex IT environments is a major challenge for any business. The credentials for privileged user accounts on numerous servers, databases, applications and network components must be protected, yet they also need to be accessible at all times. Meeting these conflicting demands is the key to preventing unauthorised access while maintaining uninterrupted business operations.”

The Hanover-based company intends to launch an additional component of CyberArk’s privileged account security solution, the Privileged Session Manager. With this product, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles can secure remote access with precision. CyberArk’s Privileged Session Manager would ensure that external service providers, for example, can only access the resources specifically relevant to them.
