CyberArk launches Privileged Threat Analytics

20th November 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

CyberArk-logoNew Delhi, India, November 20, 2013: CyberArk, a security company focused on eliminating cyber threats, has launched its Privileged Threat Analytics, an analytics solution to detect malicious privileged account behaviour and disrupt in-progress attacks before damage is done to a business. Privileged accounts have been identified as the primary target in internal and advanced external attacks.

According to security consultancy firm Mandiant, “APT intruders prefer to leverage privileged accounts where possible, such as domain administrators, service accounts with domain privileges, local administrator accounts, and privileged user accounts.”

CyberArk Privileged Threat Analytics provides targeted and immediately actionable threat analytics on these critical attack vectors by identifying previously undetectable malicious privileged user behaviour, which enables the incident response team to respond and disrupt in-progress attacks. CyberArk Privileged Threat Analytics is the industry’s only targeted privileged threat analytics solution.

Erica Beall, IT Security Systems Analyst at The Williams Companies, said, “Privileged accounts are the most powerful accounts in any organisation because of the broad access they can provide. For us, managing and controlling this access is critical to securing the enterprise, and in achieving and maintaining compliance with numerous regulations. Real-time analytics and alerts on privileged user activity will provide management with impactful information to maximise our security posture.”

CyberArk Privileged Threat Analytics identifies in-progress external attacks and malicious behaviour of authorised insiders and detects a range of anomalies in the behaviour patterns of individual privileged users in real-time, such as a user who suddenly accesses credentials at an unusual time of day. This is a strong indicator of malicious activity or severe policy violations such as password sharing.

CyberArk Privileged Threat Analytics improves effectiveness of SIEM systems and incident response teams by reducing false positives, and stops an in-progress attack earlier in the kill chain, ensuring a less costly and time consuming remediation process.

Vice president of product management at CyberArk Roy Adar said, “Organisations must assume attackers have already penetrated the perimeter and once inside, will almost always attempt to take control of privileged accounts to advance their attack. Customers are asking for controls on privileged accounts, coupled with the ability to detect suspicious activity to protect their organisations from evolving threats.”

CyberArk Privileged Threat Analytics will be generally available in December 2013.
