SPHERE, a woman-owned cybersecurity business focused on providing best-of-breed software for access governance across data, platforms and applications, has released SPHEREboard 6.3, the platform’s latest version which introduces CyberArk Worker, allowing customers to streamline account onboarding and gain full visibility into all accounts.
SPHEREboard 6.3 works in conjunction with the CyberArk Connector and PAM Module to discover missing accounts in CyberArk. The latest version of the company’s end-to-end platform can onboard hundreds of accounts at one time, reducing the manual workload carried out by IT and security professionals working in modern IT environments.
“This version of SPHEREboard is a turning point for the product,” said Rosario Mastrogiacomo, vice president of engineering at SPHERE. “CyberArk Worker ushers in expanded capabilities and re-architecture work that will mark SPHEREboard 6.3 as a milestone release for the platform and lay the foundation for all future product innovation.”
Along with the introduction of CyberArk Worker, SPHEREboard 6.3 introduces added functionalities and updates, including:
- The ability to create virtual workers for any asset type through a new and improved framework
- More accurate, faster performance in NAS connectors through key tactical improvements
- The ability for customers to create their own connectors through Connector API, transforming SPHEREboard from a standalone product to a fully-fledged platform
- New table component features, including the ability to expand columns, lock columns, apply additional filtering and more
CyberArk Worker is launching at a time when visibility into all access within an organization is critical. Sixty-one percent of all data breaches involve some form of credential abuse, according to Verizon’s 2022 DBIR report. SPHERE has been laser-focused on bringing to market advanced features to address the industry’s toughest identity hygiene challenges. This software update comes not too long after the company launched SPHEREboard 6.2, which introduced Stock & Flow Reporting to pinpoint where security risks are being introduced in environments.
