CyberArk has announced an identity security web browser to enable organizations to better protect against attacks with a flexible, identity-based approach to securing employee and third-party access to enterprise resources.
Browsers provide a vital connection between identities, applications, and data, making them a prominent attack vector and a target for threat actors in distributed, work-from-anywhere environments.
A rise in post-MFA authentication attacks targeting session cookies reinforces the need for defense-in-depth strategies. Thr Chromium-based CyberArk Secure Browser supports enterprise Zero Trust initiatives with integrated security, centralized policy management, and productivity tools while delivering a familiar user experience.
CyberArk Secure Browser is designed to eliminate existing security gaps between consumer-focused browsers and SaaS applications, endpoint-based controls and identity providers. By extending the CyberArk Identity Security Platform to the browser itself, CyberArk offers a way for IT teams to tailor security, privacy and productivity controls on managed and unmanaged devices.
Cookieless Browsing: The cookies will be stored remotely on CyberArk servers, enabling secure and seamless web browsing without saving cookie files on the endpoints. This approach makes it difficult for attackers or third parties to steal, forge, alter or manipulate cookies to gain unauthorized access to sensitive resources and helps ensure that users’ web sessions, data and accounts remain confidential and secure.
Data Exfiltration Protections: Companies can control the browsing experience with fine-grained policies designed to prevent data exfiltration attempts that can compromise corporate data.
Password Replacement: The browser displays a one-time alphanumeric string. This string works only once, only in CyberArk Secure Browser and only for intended targets – eliminating the possibility that end users will see these privileged credentials in plain text.
Extensibility: Third-party identity providers and out-of-the-box integrations are supported with the CyberArk Identity Security Platform solutions, including CyberArk Workforce Password Management and CyberArk Secure Web Sessions. This allows companies to customize session protections and access controls and credential management to each user based on their roles.
Quick Access Bar: The built-in quick access sidebar helps ensure end users can utilize their SSO credentials to securely access frequently used apps, third-party tools and CyberArk privileged access management resources directly from CyberArk Secure Browser with the click of a button.
CyberArk Secure Browser reduces IT overhead and accelerates the deployment timeline for employees, contractors, and vendors.
