nCircle’s integration with Cyber-Ark enables customers to store and manage their IT systems’ credentials -- as required by authenticated nCircle scans -- directly in the Cyber-Ark Enterprise Password Vault (EPV), improving security and simplifying credentials management. nCircle embedded the Cyber-Ark secure API for Application Identity Management, and the integration provides a single place to manage credentials while safely and securely expanding the scope of scans to provide a comprehensive view of customers’ security and compliance posture.
"Managing credentials is a significant challenge in large enterprises and can be an obstacle to complete network scanning coverage," said Ric Weeks, vice president of business development at Cyber-Ark Software. "The integration of Cyber-Ark's PIM Suite with nCircle Suite360 ensures the protection of credentials while reducing management overhead.”
“Comprehensive network scanning requires a combination of credentialed and un-credentialed scans,” noted Tim Keanini, CTO of nCircle. “nCircle’s integration with Cyber-Ark streamlines our customers’ credentials management process and makes it easier to properly audit the entire network for security and compliance.”
