CyberArk - Access from OS X without a VM


To access the CyberArk Privileged Session Manager (PSM) from OS X without using a Virtual Machine with Windows, you will need Microsoft’s Remote Desktop, version 8.0.43, which requires OS X 10.9 or later. You can download it from Apple's App Store. Microsoft Remote Desktop, version 10.0.1, will not connect to our PSM.

To connect:

  1. Launch Firefox (or Safari) and go to CyberArk's Privileged Account Security and log in with Duo.
  2. When you select to connect to AD, OIM, or OAAM, you will be prompted for a .rdp download file, open the file using Microsoft Remote Desktop.
    • You will also be prompted to accept a certificate for connection to the server. Click Continue to do this.
  3. Wait a few moments while the Remote Desktop window opens, and then another window will open and log you in to the connection you have selected.

NOTE: If you are off-campus you will need to start a Big-IP Edge session prior to launching a browser to go to CyberArk's Privileged Account Security site.
