CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution Achieves Additional Federal Government Milestone, Enables Customers to More Easily Address Critical Compliance and Risk Mitigation Requirements
Newton, Mass. – September 8, 2016 – CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the company that protects organizations from cyber attacks that have made their way inside the network perimeter, today announced the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution has received the U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness (Army CoN).
The U.S. Army Networthiness Program was created for compliance and risk mitigation purposes and ensures that all IT purchases meet Federal Department of Defense (DoD) and Army guidelines, regulations and requirements. Following a thorough IT assessment, the Army CoN recognizes that the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution has been certified for use across the Army Enterprise Infrastructure Network.
Federal government agencies, departments and critical infrastructure are frequent targets in today’s advanced attacks. The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution is a proactive cyber security solution that identifies and secures privileged accounts and credentials, including SSH keys, and continuously monitors the use of those credentials to identify and alert on anomalous activity in order to limit damage from an external attack or insider threat. Addressing vulnerabilities in Federal government’s critical infrastructure, CyberArk also helps protect industrial control systems (ICS) with cyber security capabilities aimed at limiting the progression of malware, better identifying privileged account-related risks and improving remote access security.
The Army CoN verifies compliance with stringent DoD and Army requirements for security, sustainability and usability. The CoN is based on a set of consistent, risk-based assessment criteria that supports interoperability and reciprocity, making it easier for military IT professionals from other participating enterprises to implement CyberArk solutions.
This certification follows the addition of the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution to the DoD Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL). CyberArk has the only comprehensive privileged account security solution on the list, which identifies products that have undergone a rigorous testing process conducted by the DoD that assures acceptable levels of information assurance and interoperability capabilities.
CyberArk was also granted Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level EAL 2+ in 2015, further demonstrating CyberArk’s commitment to helping Federal organizations and global enterprises secure privileged accounts.
“Achieving the Army CoN is another significant milestone for CyberArk in the Federal government sector, and one that makes it even easier for our customers to implement solutions for privileged account protection and threat detection as part of their advanced cyber security strategies,” said Kevin Corbett, director of U.S. Federal Business at CyberArk. “With the increasing intensity of cyber attacks targeting government data and information, as well as critical infrastructure, CyberArk is committed to continuing to decrease barriers for implementing solutions that help safeguard against attacks – whether initiated by external threats or insiders.”
