Likely you are exploring the below product offering

Privileged Identity Management (PIM) Suite – comprehensive lifecycle management for
privileged, shared and application accounts across the datacenter.

Privileged Session Management (PSM) Suite–isolates, controls and monitors privileged sessions on servers, databases or virtual environments, providing a pre-integrated solution with PIM.

Sensitive Information Management (SIM) Suite–manages and protects sensitive information whether being shared within the organization or sent to external parties

You may want to check out the below

A) The slides for the product suite depicting PIM and PSM, there is some logical diagram (slide 22) and screenshot of the actual mgmt console (alerts etc) but in term of deployment guide it is not published though.

Primarily, PIM is the overarching consisting the overall password vault (PVWebAccess-PVWA), application identity mgr (AIM) and the on-demand privileged mgr (OPM). it lay the foundation and PSM further give granular mgmt control over the identified privileged users such as your sysadmin to the various appl servers. Note it cannot replaced the enterprise identity mgmt system, but instead leverage the existing identity store to manage those critical accounts.

The PSM or PV(Web)mgr should be the main proxy to all the backend appl server as they are the authorised entity to authenticate and govern the administrative activities performed using that privileged account login.

It is good to know using the product where do they stand in guidance referencing the widely recognised NIST SP800-53 (note this is older version but should be alright as research on robustness). Below is an Assessment of CyberArk's most common deployed solutions

There is also the release note highlighting key component and installation/upgrade steps, not too much what you can get but give you general coverage of the key component and enhancements

May be better to please contact your local CyberArk technical account manager to get those info
