UCS Solutions Selects Cyber-Ark Enterprise Password Vault© for Privileged Identity Management
Company Becomes First Hosting Service Provider in South Africa to Face the Security Risks Associated With Privileged Accounts Head-On
Newton, MA 12th December 2008 - Cyber-Ark Software, the leading provider of Privileged Identity Management (PIM), Sensitive Information Management and Digital Vault solutions, today announced that UCS Solutions, a leading hosting service provider in South Africa, has made a strategic decision to purchase Cyber-Ark's award-winning Enterprise Password Vault™ (EPV) to mitigate the risks associated with Privileged Identity Management (PIM).
Studies have shown that for many companies, the privileged identities that provide administrators with wide-ranging access to systems, applications, and databases are a weak point in internal security. Cyber-Ark's Enterprise Password Vault enables organizations to secure, manage, automatically change and log all activities associated with all types of privileged identities such as administrator on a Windows server, Root on a UNIX server, Cisco Enable on a Cisco device, as well as embedded passwords found in applications and scripts.
"The main advantages we are able to achieve through Cyber-Ark EPV are the accountability of our engineers, while maintaining the confidentiality of our privileged identities internally and externally to the organization," said Enlin Neveling, IT Risk and Security Manager for UCS Solutions, in a recent article in IT Web. "Being a hosting service provider, the challenges of PIM across the enterprise are a risk normally addressed in reaction to a security breach involving a privileged identity; and in most of the reported cases the offending party was in the employment of the organization, and in some no longer employed."
"With UCS Solutions being one of the first hosting service providers in South Africa to take the challenges we face with PIM seriously, the added advantage is the higher level of assurance we are now able to provide to our customers," he added.
"UCS Solutions offers the widest range of software, technology solutions and services to the retail and consumer goods industry in South Africa, and we're thrilled that they have selected Enterprise Password Vault as their PIM solution of choice, and as a critical component of their service offering," said Udi Mokady, President and CEO of Cyber-Ark Software.
