CyberArk Wins 2015 Government Security News Homeland Security Awards
Company Takes Top Spot in Best Privileged Access Management Solution and Best Continuous Monitoring and Mitigation System Categories
Newton, Mass. – December 16, 2015 – CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the company that protects organizations from cyber attacks that have made their way inside the network perimeter, today announced it was named a winner in the 2015 GSN Homeland Security Awards in two categories: Best Privileged Access Management Solution and Best Continuous Monitoring and Mitigation System.
The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution helps government organizations prevent the theft, abuse and misuse of privileged credentials in advanced cyber attacks, while better containing threats and limiting damage. CyberArk is the only vendor that has achieved Common Criteria certification for a comprehensive Privileged Account Security solution.
“The Federal government and its agencies have long been the target of cyber attacks. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) breach was a clear signal for a new security approach that presumes attackers have already breached the perimeter, and reinforces the need for a layer of security that protects the network from the inside out,” said John Worrall, chief marketing officer, CyberArk. “These awards highlight CyberArk’s commitment to helping Federal and state agencies identify privileged credential vulnerabilities and mitigate the risk of a potential OPM-style network compromise.”
Winning for the Best Privileged Access Management Solution, the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution identifies existing privileged credentials across networks, makes sure those credentials are locked down and secure, and uses continuous monitoring of privileged account credentials to detect anomalous behavior and stop an attack early in the cycle.
CyberArk Privileged Threat Analytics, part of the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution, won for the Best Continuous Monitoring and Mitigation System. CyberArk’s expert system for privileged account security intelligence provides targeted, immediately actionable threat alerts by identifying previously undetectable malicious privileged user and account activity. This solution enables incident response teams to identify an attack in real time, and take the necessary steps to mitigate the attack and reduce damage.
