Software today announced the introduction of its Discovery & Audit
solution to help organizations easily identify security risks by
scanning and analyzing privileged accounts across their networks. Cyber-Ark
DNA™ is a light-weight, standalone tool that exposes the magnitude
of a privileged account security problem allowing organizations to
develop a more complete understanding of the risk privileged
accounts present to their environment.
Privileged accounts, including shared, administrative, default and
hardcoded passwords are critical attack points found throughout an
organization's IT infrastructure: on desktops, laptops, servers,
databases, applications, network devices, and throughout their cloud
deployments. Privileged accounts are exploited in virtually every advanced
cyber-attack. Before an organization can begin to manage the risk
these accounts present, they need to know how many they have and where
they are. For what was once a manual, labor-intensive undertaking,
Cyber-Ark has now developed a simple, three-step tool that identifies
these privileged access points, saving untold man hours of time.
"One of the biggest challenges for our organization is in the numbr and
variety of privileged accounts in place over multiple domains. The
challenge of enumerating these and understanding what they are used for
is not to be underestimated," said Steve Mair, security and information
risk advisor, Capita plc. "Cyber-Ark DNA has provided a quick and easy
way to identify privileged accounts which, with some analysis, has
helped identify the areas we need to address as a matter of priority."
Benefits of Cyber-Ark DNA scanning and reporting include:
"Every privileged account is a potential attack point," said Roy Adar,
vice president of product management at Cyber-Ark. "Unmanaged,
unprotected privileged accounts are all too often the critical link for
executing high-profile cyber-attacks. We created Cyber-Ark DNA to help
organizations quickly and easily understand where their privileged
accounts exist, which is the first step towards achieving privileged
account security and compliance."

accounts exist and their status. Organizations may sign up for the
