CyberArk – Distributed Vault Migration

finance institution

Financial Institution

2 Certified Professionals

48.5 Hours ​

The client needed a solution to migrate their on-premise Distributed Vault environment to the new Nutanix Distributed Vault environment. They had a Distributed Vault environment.

Architecture:

Client’s environment includes 1 Master, 1 Satellite vault, along with components, i.e., 2 PVWA (Password Vault Web Access), 2 CPM (Central Password Manager), 2 PSM (Privileged Session Manager), and 1 PTA (Privileged Threat Analytics).

Challenge

The Client was unfamiliar with CyberArk and was unable to complete the requirements before the deadline.

Client’s environment also had only one DR licence, which resulted in replication delays. The customer had little awareness of their architecture and licences available.

Solution

After analysing the client’s use case and SOW, SecurDI’s Team performed the following solution:

  • During the pre-implementation engagement the team educated the client and re-evaluated the architecture based on client requirements and accordingly provided the prerequisites document to the client.
  • The team setup the new master-satellite vault on Nutanix and replicated all the data from the old vault
  • The PVWA and PSM components were installed from scratch, but the CPM users were migrated while CPM was installed in the Nutanix environment
  • The team pointed all the components (old and new) to the new master vault to have limited downtime
  • The team cloned the old PTA server into the new Nutanix environment with the same IP, successfully configured all the vault configurations and integrated PTA into CyberArk
  • The team performed the automatic failover and failback process and verified it
  • Team documented and provided the client a guide document for the failover and failback operations.

Result

  • The team finished the migration and validated the environment within the timeframe set
  • The team advised the client and gave them a comprehensive explanation of CyberArk Architecture
  • The team assisted the client with failback and failover setup and provided them with recordings of the engagement session
