Deploy the CyberArk Identity Browser Extension

This topic guides system administrators through the procedures for deploying the CyberArk Identity Browser Extension. Some web applications require installation of the Browser Extension to provide single sign-on. Without the browser extension, users will not be able to open these applications. You only need to install the browser extension one time per browser type.

You can send the link for installing the browser extension directly to users. When users click the link, the installer identifies the user’s default browser and installs the corresponding extension. The link and the browser extension files are also available from the Downloads page in the Admin Portal.
