CyberArk recognizes CyberSheath as the “2015 Newcomer Partner of the Year”

By Eric Noonan • July 27, 2015

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the CyberArk 2015 Americas Summit in Boston Massachusetts where CyberSheath was recognized as the “2015 Newcomer Partner of the Year”. We were honored by the award and inspired by the event itself as it was refreshing to be in a venue with nearly five hundred like-minded security professionals focused on one of the most important aspects of security, privileged account management.

Privileged account management is a lot like exercise in that it’s a “pay now” or “pay later” equation.

Privileged account management is a lot like exercise in that it’s a “pay now” or “pay later” equation.  You can enjoy a high carb, low exercise lifestyle right up until you can’t. The can’t, or “pay later”, comes when you’ve been breached and suddenly have to account for a decade of nonexistent or bad privileged account policy. Promiscuously granted admin rights and never changing service account passwords are a treasure trove for advanced attackers and are a common theme in nearly every publicized high profile attack.

Having led an organization that reactively addressed privileged accounts (domain admin, local admin, service accounts, etc.) for more than 40,000 employees in the midst of a breach I’ve lived the “pay later” scenario and I’d encourage you to avoid it at all costs. Privileged accounts should be something that you are executing on now and not on that “to do” list on your whiteboard.
