Some privileged accounts are granted standing, “always on” access despite only requiring access for brief periods of time increasing the attack surface. This is particularly true in the case of SSH keys, which are often mismanaged and easily compromised. New CyberArk capabilities feature short-lived SSH certificate authentication to secure access to existing or newly created instances in Linux systems without the need to manually manage accounts and credentials.
With today’s announcement, CyberArk continues to deliver the broadest set of just-in-time use cases to enable least privilege including:
“Just-in-time is a function of an overall privileged access management program that reinforces least privilege principles. When coupled with other foundational elements, it becomes a key part of an evolving strategy for protecting privileged access,” said Nir Gertner, chief security strategist, CyberArk. “By delivering the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of just-in-time capabilities, CyberArk helps organizations reduce standing privileged access risk, simplify operations and strengthen their overall security posture across hybrid IT environments.”
