Privileged Access Management

Today, we announced that CyberArk has been named a Leader in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management.1 CyberArk was positioned both highest in ability to execute and furthest in completeness of vision, for the second time in a row.

First and foremost, we want to thank our customers, partners and employees for being the foundation of our success. You are what motivates us, every day.

It’s our mission to continue to improve security for our more than 6,000 customers as they digitally transform their business. This is what drives CyberArk to constantly innovate and drive toward finding new ways to reduce risk for these global organizations – all while delivering a superior user experience focused on improving productivity and creating new efficiencies that move their businesses forward.

We know the world is operating in dramatically new ways, but what hasn’t changed is the attack pathway, which consistently targets businesses’ most valuable assets.

Organizations can’t stop attacks if they don’t secure privileged access everywhere: in the cloud, on endpoint devices, in applications, within automated processes, and throughout the DevOps pipeline. What’s more, the security of privileged access needs to encompass a company’s remote employees, as well as all its supply chain partners – as well as their home-based workers.

We are proud of our accomplishments over the past year, which include new just-in-time access capabilities that complement broader least privilege strategies; Alero, our SaaS-based  remote user solution that combines Zero Trust access and biometric multi-factor authentication; as well as delivering the industry’s broadest portfolio of SaaS-based solutions for privileged access management. I am especially excited about executing on our vision for Identity Security, which  starts with Zero Trust and uses artificial intelligence to understand context and intent. This approach will help organizations dramatically reduce risk, while providing a seamless user experience that securely enables the business and supports any device, application or user — regardless of role or location.

In addition to the Magic Quadrant, Gartner also published a companion report, “2020 Critical Capabilities for Privileged Access Management,”2 that states, “Gartner has identified PAM as a top 10 security control, and the market continues to grow at a double-digit rate.”

We at CyberArk believe it’s important to continue to emphasize the importance of PAM as critical to organizations’ cybersecurity strategies and strategic risk management initiatives. This is true, now, more than ever before.
