On Friday 15th May 2015, Ubusha and CyberArk hosted an event with strategic customers to present to them on the role of CyberArk in a successful Identity & Access Governance strategy and some of the new features in the CyberArk platform.
The event took the form of an exciting hot air balloon ride through the Magaliesburg and Skeerport ranges, followed by a presentation from the two hosts.
During the presentation, Ubusha explained how Identity & Access Governance controls must also address non-human identities typically associated with system and service accounts. Ubusha further presented on how the CyberArk Privileged Identity Manager and Privileged Session Manager products can assist in provide both excellent monitoring and control over these types of accounts.
Next the local South African CyberArk team discussed the new Privileged Threat Analytics product. PTA takes input from both your existing SIEM platform and your CyberArk framework and using big data analytic concepts, helps you to identify malicious activity. Interestingly it was shown how most modern advanced persistent threats ultimately expose system / service accounts and abuse this elevated access for maligned purposes. PTA provides an excellent dashboard for identifying these types of activities within huge sets of user activity.
