CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the Identity Security company, today introduced CyberArk Secure Browser. This first-of-its-kind Identity Security web browser enables organisations to better protect against attacks with a flexible, identity-based approach to securing employee and third-party access to enterprise resources.
By 2030, enterprise browsers will be the core platform for delivering workforce productivity and security software on managed and unmanaged devices for a seamless hybrid work experience.1 Browsers provide a vital connection between identities, applications and data, making them a prominent attack vector and a target for cybercriminals – especially in distributed, work-from-anywhere environments.
A rise in post-MFA authentication attacks targeting session cookies reinforces the need for defense-in-depth strategies. Now, CyberArk is applying its deep cybersecurity experience, history of Identity Security innovation and intelligent privilege controls to web browsing. Part of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform, the Chromium-based CyberArk Secure Browser supports enterprise Zero Trust initiatives with integrated security, centralised policy management and productivity tools while delivering a familiar user experience. The CyberArk Identity Security Platform delivers the most robust, layered approach to address the number one area of cybersecurity risk: credential access.2
CyberArk Secure Browser is designed to eliminate existing security gaps between consumer-focused browsers and SaaS applications, endpoint-based controls and identity providers. By extending the CyberArk Identity Security Platform to the browser itself, CyberArk makes it easy for IT teams to tailor security, privacy and productivity controls on managed and unmanaged devices. Key features include:
Cookieless Browsing: Cookieless browsing is a key differentiating feature that allows users to access and use web-based resources without exposing cookie files to attackers. The cookies will be stored remotely on CyberArk servers enabling secure and seamless web browsing without saving cookie files on the endpoints. This approach makes it difficult for attackers or third parties to steal, forge, alter or manipulate cookies to gain unauthorised access to sensitive resources and helps ensure that users’ web sessions, data and accounts remain confidential and secure.
Data Exfiltration Protections: Companies can control the browsing experience with fine-grained policies designed to prevent data exfiltration attempts that can compromise corporate data.
Password Replacement: CyberArk Secure Browser features patent-pending password replacement functionality. Instead of showing stored credentials for privileged resources or websites, the browser displays a one-time alphanumeric string. This string works only once, only in CyberArk Secure Browser and only for intended targets – eliminating the possibility that end users will see these privileged credentials in plain text.
Extensibility: Third-party identity providers and out-of-the-box integrations are supported with the CyberArk Identity Security Platform solutions, including CyberArk Workforce Password Management and CyberArk Secure Web Sessions. This allows companies to customise session protections, access controls and credential management to each user based on their roles. It also works in conjunction with CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager to mitigate potentially risky web access and vulnerable endpoints.
Quick Access Bar: The built-in quick access sidebar helps ensure end users can utilise their Single Sign-On (SSO) credentials to securely access frequently used apps, third-party tools and CyberArk privileged access management resources directly from CyberArk Secure Browser with the click of a button.
“CyberArk is constantly innovating – working to protect our customers against current cybersecurity risk and emerging threats. Based on trends impacting hybrid work environments and research generated by our CyberArk Labs and Red Team, developing an enterprise browser – with an identity-first, security-first approach – was a natural progression for our business,” said Gil Rapaport, general manager, Access at CyberArk. “CyberArk Secure Browser represents a new era of web browsing, where security, privacy and productivity are the top priorities.”
Dynamically mirroring controls and access policies existing on Chrome and Edge browsers that are already deployed on the end user’s device, CyberArk Secure Browser reduces IT overhead and accelerates the deployment timeline for employees, contractors and vendors.
Planned availability for CyberArk Secure Browser on Windows endpoints is by the end of 2023. To learn more about CyberArk Secure Browser, please visit https://lp.cyberark.com/secure-browser-early-access.html.

Safe Security (SAFE), the leader in AI-based cyber risk management SaaS platform, announced today the industry's first Cyber Risk Cloud of Clouds for predicting and preventing cyber breaches. In contrast to the rest of the industry that takes a reactive approach, SAFE's Cyber Risk Cloud of Clouds enables organizations to make informed and predictive dynamic security decisions to reduce risk.
Real-Time, Data-Driven, Aggregated Risk in a Single Place
SAFE's Cyber Risk Cloud of Clouds provides organizations with a granular and aggregated view of enterprise security risk by bringing together multiple disparate cyber signals, including Crowdstrike, Wiz, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Provider, Qualys, Tanium, Rapid7, ServiceNow, and more in a single view. This provides organizations with visibility across their entire attack surface ecosystem, including technology, people, and third parties.
AI Breach Predictions and Prioritized Actions to Prevent Breaches
Using SAFE's predictive AI data models, co-developed with MIT, SAFE generates breach likelihood for different risk scenarios like ransomware. For example, accurately answer questions like:
How likely are you to be hit by a ransomware attack in the next 12 months?
What is your likelihood of being hit by the latest malware like "Snake" malware?
What is your dollar impact for that attack?
What prioritized actions can you proactively take to reduce the ransomware breach likelihood and reduce dollar risk?
"The CISO is facing an unprecedented level of pressure and the role has evolved into a major business decision maker. With SAFE, CISOs can gain a new level of visibility with higher confidence, through real-time access into their cybersecurity posture, to make the most impactful strategy to decrease cyber risk," said Saket Modi, CEO and Co-Founder of SAFE. "The new release of SafeGPT, a generative AI interface, powered by LLM models is a game-changer. It helps CISOs get the right answers a hundred times faster."
SafeGPT Drives Easy Access and Risk Reducing Decisions
SAFE's generative AI chat interface powered by LLM models, SafeGPT, offers an intuitive platform for managing cyber risk with ease, providing stakeholders with a clear and comprehensible overview of the organization's cybersecurity posture. With its user-friendly dashboard and natural language processing capabilities, SafeGPT enables users to ask targeted questions of their cyber risk data, determine the most effective strategies for mitigating risk, and respond confidently to inquiries from regulators and other key stakeholders.
"The market transitions going on now are going to affect every industry and vertical worldwide," said John Chambers, former Executive Chairman and CEO of Cisco and current founder and CEO of JC2 Ventures." AI is going to have a tremendous impact on cybersecurity, which is why I am excited about the launch of SafeGPT. It simplifies complex problem-solving for board members and C-level executives."
About Safe Security
