  • IIFL Group Secures Developer Access To Sensitive Data and Applications With CyberArk

    Published on June 19, 2024

     Mumbai : CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the identity security company, today announced that IIFL Group, one of India’s largest financial services conglomerates, has chosen the CyberArk Identity Security Platform to implement least privilege across vulnerable, high-risk developer endpoints for greater threat protection, improved user experience and simplified compliance reporting.

    The IIFL Group employs over 30,000 people and caters to more than seven million customers through various financial products and services. It comprises IIFL Finance, IIFL Home Finance, IIFL Securities, Livlong Insurance Brokers, 5Paisa and Livlong 365 Protection & Wellness Services.

    Before adopting CyberArk, the Group faced the risk of privileged access being compromised due to developers holding standing administrative rights for endpoints. This opened the conglomerate to the possibility of security threats such as data loss, vulnerability injections and malicious software installation. While IIFL already adopted stringent compliance practices, this crucial risk needed to be mitigated.

    IIFL Group needed an identity security solution for developers that was easy to administer but did not disrupt workflow. The Group selected the CyberArk Identity Security Platform to manage and secure developer access to sensitive data and applications, helping prevent unauthorized software installations and protect its development platform against malware. CyberArk applies intelligent privilege controls to provide just in time access. In addition, it secures stored credentials across all operating systems and third-party applications, while its reporting and analytics capabilities simplify compliance reporting demands.

    Ameya Sathye, Vice President & Group Head of Cyber Security, India Infoline Group, said, “CyberArk has played a crucial role in enhancing our cybersecurity posture. The implementation enabled us to adopt best practices in identity security for our developers and has significantly improved the experience for our administrators. We are highly satisfied with the product, support and service provided by CyberArk.”

    Rohan Vaidya, Area Vice President, SAARC & India, CyberArk, said, “The CyberArk Identity Security Platform enables organizations like IIFL to effectively mitigate cyber threats to developers, who often enjoy always-on, unrestricted access to source code, production environments, databases and other critical assets and due to this are highly sought-after targets. We are pleased to partner with IIFL Group and look forward to supporting the Group’s progression towards establishing more widespread, resilient and streamlined cybersecurity practices to protect all identities, human or machine.”
