Duo Security Announces CyberArk Integration

Zero-trust security provider Duo Security, has announced an integration with privileged access security firm, CyberArk.

The integration aims to enable organisations to fortify increasingly complex IT environments by ensuring only authorised users and protected devices have access to privileged account credentials.

Duo’s flagship zero-trust product – Duo Beyond – now integrates with the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution, that allows organisations to evaluate the security hygiene of a device before granting access to further extend security and reinforce consistent policy enforcement.

Duo Beyond is modeled after Google’s BeyondCorp, a zero-trust security framework developed by Google researchers that shifts network security from a firewall-based approach to access policies based on device information, device health and the associated user. Zero-trust security requires every user and associated device to pass the same tests prior to granting access, regardless of where the access request originates.

“The attack surface that organizations need to secure as they look to protect their most privileged assets and data from unauthorised access is constantly changing,” said Adam Bosnian, executive vice president, global business development, CyberArk.

According to a 2018 Duo analysis of 11 million enterprise devices, the average number of unique networks that users from large organisations are accessing protected data from spiked 24 percent in the past year, meaning more work is being conducted outside of the office, which could potentially introduce risks to corporate applications and data.

“It’s vital for organisations to take a more practical approach to protecting their privileged credentials, especially as BYOD and remote work trends make it more difficult to enforce traditional network security measures,” said Ash Devata, vice president of products, Duo. “With the integration of Duo Beyond and CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution, we’re able to provide organisations an easy and effective approach to protecting their most sensitive account credentials with strong authentication and device security checks.”
