UiPath Joins CyberArk Global Technology Alliance to Enhance Security Across its Platform

Leading global Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software provider UiPath is a new member of CyberArk’s global technology partner program, the C3 Alliance. The program brings together enterprise software, IT security and service providers to build on the power of privileged account security to better protect customers from cyber threats across multi-platform environments.


By integrating the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution with the UiPath enterprise-scale RPA software platform, UiPath takes a new step in diversifying the security features of its industry-standard product.


As modern cyber attacks consistently involve compromised privileged account credentials, with the CyberArk integration, UiPath is incorporating privileged account security best services to enhance customers’ ability to proactively protect, detect and respond to threats. Main advantages for UiPath customers include:

 

Proactive Protection

 

By integrating CyberArk Application Identity Manager, part of the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution, with the UiPath Orchestrator, customers can be confident that the privileged credentials used by UiPath Robot entities to access their systems, general targets and critical applications, are better secured and monitored. 

 

Automated Management and Rotation

 

Using the CyberArk solution, privileged credentials used by UiPath Robot entities are automatically rotated based on organizational security policies, resulting in reduced operational resources required to secure Windows login credentials.

 

Meet Audit and Compliance Requirements

 

Comply with security mandates for regularly rotating application passwords and SSH keys and maintaining a comprehensive audit trail. 

 

“We are truly committed to offering our clients the best automation technology on the market – not only the fastest to implement automation solution, but one guaranteeing solid industry-proven security features”, has declared Daniel Dines – CEO and Co-Founder of UiPath.

 

“Robotic process automation is an emerging technology growth area that is being linked to organizations’ digital transformation strategies. With increasing automation often comes increased security risk and exposure, especially when you consider the expanding scope of activities and access that require privileged credentials,” said Brian Carpenter, business development manager, CyberArk.

 

(...)

 

“UiPath is a strong addition to the CyberArk technology partner program and our integration has some interesting use cases. UiPath Robots allow organizations to automate certain processes, but they need privileged credentials to perform those functions. One of the benefits of the integration is to use the CyberArk solution to help secure and manage the credentials used by UiPath Robots to access applications to support risk management and compliance requirements,” he continued.
