March 25, 2019 | Reports | Katie Curtin-Mestre
Today, independent analyst firm KuppingerCole Analysts released its 2019 “Leadership Compass: Privileged Access Management” report. Maintaining our overall leadership position for four consecutive years, CyberArk surpassed 19 other evaluated vendors, demonstrating advantages across product, innovation and market evaluation categories.
According to KuppingerCole lead analyst Anmol Singh, “Privileged Access Management, over the past few years, has become one of the most relevant areas of cybersecurity associated with IAM (Identity and Access Management) that deals with identifying, securing and managing privileged credentials across an organization’s IT environment. Once considered a technology option for optimizing administrative efficiency by managing passwords and other secrets, [it] has evolved into a set of crucial technologies for preventing security breaches and credential thefts.”
The prestigious Leadership Compass report provides a comprehensive view of the Privileged Access Management marketplace and aims to help security and IAM leaders identify the privileged access management solutions with the greatest impact on cybersecurity. The CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution was recognized by KuppingerCole for capabilities including:
- Intuitive and robust UI design
- Strong threat analytics capabilities offering real-time threat detection and remediation
- Effective DevOps support
- Broad support for cloud applications and infrastructure
According to the report, “CyberArk remains the vendor of choice for global organizations seeking a comprehensive, market-leading privileged access management solution for complex requirements.” Identified as “the most prominent vendor” in the market, we are honored to be recognized for our “focus on constant innovation” as we help customers proactively protect against advanced cybersecurity threats and adopt digital transformation strategies with confidence.
