Ransomware has significantly increased from disruption to extortion:
• Businesses have an abundance of over-privileged human, non-human identities (apps, service accounts, bots) and devices
• Weak authentication and risky remote access by workforce and third-party vendors increase risk of attacks
• Risk has further amplified with users spread out across geographies and hybrid workspaces
• Inadequately protected desktops, laptops and servers all provide entry points for attackers to steal data and wreak havoc
• Adding an important layer of defense to existing endpoint security solutions, such as Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR), Next-Gen Anti-Virus (NGAV) and Email Security, is needed

With CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager, you can:
•Implement a comprehensive least privilege solution that offers powerful defense capabilities and integrations
•Configure policies with less complexity than in EDR tools reducing the chance of false positives
•Activate controls in the highest risk areas of emerging threats
•Extend application control capabilities to identify and block ransomware from running
•Prevent 100% of ransomware from encrypting files by removing local admin rights combined with application controls (based on ongoing testing by CyberArk Labs)
•Minimize financial loss and disruption due to attacks resulting in fewer helpdesk calls and better overall user productivity
