SecZetta Integration with CyberArk Provides Increased Security for Third-Party Users with Privileged Access

FALL RIVER, MA – September 16, 2020 – SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity management solutions, announced the availability of a new integration with CyberArk, recently named a Leader in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management[1] for the second time in a row. As a result of the integration with the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution, SecZetta now offers a plugin that allows session management for SecZetta system administrators.

Privileged access management continues to be one of the top priorities for cybersecurity teams. As such, it may come as a surprise that so many organizations – more than 90%, according to a  recent CyberArk study, are willing to provide third parties with access to critical internal resources.  This is especially concerning given that 89% of respondents in the same study felt that they could do better or were completely dissatisfied with their efforts to secure third party vendor access. The significance of this state of affairs is expected to intensify as organizations in almost every industry continue to expand their reliance on growing and increasingly diverse numbers of third parties to quickly and cost-effectively help meet competitive and operational needs.

To build on the value proposition offered by the SecZetta CyberArk plugin, SecZetta plans to develop an integration between its Third-Party Identity Risk solution and CyberArk Alero, which provides fast, easy and secure privileged access for remote vendors and employees who need to access critical internal systems managed by CyberArk. This integration will be designed to address two of the most pressing concerns related to granting privileged access to third parties: provisioning and deprovisioning of third party access, and maintaining visibility of user access and behavior.  Once completed, this integration will enable streamlined lifecycle management for third-party users in SecZetta and controlled remote access via Alero, including just-in-time provisioning of third-party vendor access that is managed through CyberArk and doesn’t require VPNs or passwords.

“With SecZetta, organizations have an authoritative source of third-party identity data that they can use to make more well-informed, risk-based decisions about provisioning, verifying, and deprovisioning access,” said Brian Carpenter, director of business development, CyberArk.  “By combining the benefits of CyberArk’s advanced solutions for privileged access management with SecZetta’s Third-Party Identity Risk solution, customers will seamlessly be able to facilitate granting privileged access to third-party users, and most importantly, more effectively mitigate the associated risks.”

“Our current and upcoming integrations with CyberArk’s market-leading privileged access management solutions is a testament to SecZetta’s commitment to work with the industry’s top solutions providers to ensure our customers have the most advanced tools readily available for use with our solutions,” said Jeremy Rohrs, VP of global alliances and business development, SecZetta. “We are very excited about the expanded value proposition that we are able to offer customers with the new SecZetta CyberArk plugin and look forward to adding an integration to CyberArk Alero to help our customers take advantage of key features like just-in-time provisioning of remote third party access without using a VPN or other agent-based solution for remote access and secure access with biometric MFA.”
