CyberArk | March 15, 2023
On March 14, 2023, CyberArk, the world leader in Identity Security, announced advancements to Workforce Password Management. The cloud-based business password management solution from CyberArk allows businesses to capture, store, and manage password-based apps and other secrets in a secure manner. Added features offer administrators with increased flexibility and power to minimize risk and enhance security for web-based applications.
Workforce Password Management is developed for business environments and offers the privacy, availability and security organizations require, including support for current corporate directories and passwordless authentication controls, unlike personal password managers. Some of the new things are:
Application Access Controls Based on Usernames
Support for CAPTCHA-Enabled Web Apps
Enhanced Reporting for User-Added Applications
CyberArk Secure Web Sessions and Workforce Password Management can be used together to further fortify access to critical systems. With the newest release, Secure Web Sessions provides an additional layer of defense called Session Control. Session Control enables administrators to define notification and enforcement rules for specific text fields in business applications that are accessed with credentials stored in Workforce Password Management. For example, administrators can set up a rule to stop users from transferring more than pre-set threshold within their corporate banking applications and notify the IT security team of the attempt.
Gil Rapaport, General Manager, Access Management at CyberArk, said, “Traditional password managers typically lack controls and functionalities that enterprises need to secure end-user credentials, which are constantly targeted by attackers.” He added, “Password management must be dynamic to evolve with attacker innovation. We are continuously investing in new features and functionalities for Workforce Password Management to deliver greater usability, security and control for all users within an organization – from developers and business users to IT administrators.”

DoControl | February 03, 2023
On February 2, 2023, DoControl, a leading automated software-as-a-service (SaaS) security provider, announced the release of its no-code SaaS security platform on AWS Marketplace, an online catalog that simplifies the provisioning, procurement, and governance of third-party data, software and services. The platform enables joint customers to better protect their business-critical assets by setting up a foundational layer of preventative data access security controls directly through the AWS Marketplace.
Individual SaaS applications' native security features are usually poor and do not provide a consistent way to apply data access controls across all SaaS application types. DoControl provides a single security strategy that centralizes the enforcement of least privilege - beyond the network, identity, and device levels - across the entire estate of an enterprise's SaaS applications. Customers with AWS deployments may now use DoControl solutions to safeguard all shared data and files accessed by every identity or entity, including internal employees, third-party collaborators, and third-party OAuth applications.
On average, an enterprise has approximately 200 applications in use, with hundreds or thousands of internal and external collaborators. Therefore, data security is of utmost importance across these applications (file-sharing, file storage, messaging, and so on), as breaches can result in lost revenue, severe brand damage, regulatory fines and other financial consequences.
DoControl offers SaaS asset management, continuous monitoring, and automated security workflows to security and IT teams to prevent data breaches. In addition, DoControl lowers the physical toil and complexity that security and IT professionals face on a daily basis by replacing manual effort with automation.
Founded in 2020, DoControl is a No-Code SaaS Security Platform that provides organizations with automated, self-service tools needed for SaaS applications data access monitoring, orchestration, and remediation. It takes a distinctive, customer-focused approach to the labor-intensive challenge of security risk management and data exfiltration prevention in popular SaaS applications. DoControl helps lower the work overload and complexity that Security and IT teams face on a daily basis by replacing manual work with automation. The company is backed by investors, including StageOne Ventures, Insight Partners, RTP Global, Cardumen Capital, and CrowdStrike's CrowdStrike Falcon Fund.
