With the CyberArk Secure Browser, companies can build additional security and privacy safeguards into employee browser sessions.

CyberArk has experience in privileged access management. This allows employees’ and partners’ access rights to applications to be controlled so that only authorized users are granted access. The new browser will, therefore, focus on securing all access, including privileged and sensitive access. In this way, a company’s valuable information should remain protected.

CyberArk especially hopes the new browser will help prevent cookie theft and session takeover. CyberArk points to figures showing that browsers are a major risk for organizations. 65% of employees report violating the organization’s secure browsing policy to do their jobs. In addition, 59% use login credentials in the browser used for work, which must be done securely.

Operation of Secure Browser

Secure Browser integrates with a company’s Identity and Access Management and security architecture to handle secure access. This enforces secure access to corporate resources, regardless of whether the user’s device is owned or unmanaged. The browser constantly considers securing identities, endpoints, and credentials. The browser distinguishes between work and personal applications and domains.

In addition, CyberArk’s technology makes users less dependent on traditional passwords by generating one-time passwords. It also supports one-click access to frequently used apps, PAM resources, and third-party tools. By connecting to identity systems and policies, the browser assures that the user is who they say they are.

The Secure Browser is part of the CyberArkIdentity Security Platform.
