• Market Leadership: CyberArk pioneered the Privileged Access Management market and remains the market leader today. In addition to investments in organic growth, with Idaptive's acquisition, CyberArk extended its foundational strengths to expand privileged access management capabilities by delivering a security-first approach that protects access for all identities. CyberArk is widely recognized as a leader in top analyst reports including the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management; The Forrester Wave: Privileged Identity Management, Q4 2020; and KuppingerCole’s 2020 “Leadership Compass: Privileged Access Management.”

• Technology Leadership: CyberArk was the first to introduce behavioral analytics to detect and alert on anomalous privileged account activity, the first to secure privileged remote vendor access with its passwordless biometrics-based authentication solution and blazed the trail for securing DevOps workflows with an innovative secrets management solution.
CyberArk continually works to introduce new solutions and expand existing capabilities to meet the needs of organizations that are rapidly transforming their business. This includes expanded capabilities for CyberArk Alero, which now allows all remote users simple and secure access to critical systems managed by CyberArk using Zero Trust access. CyberArk is the only vendor of its kind to offer an open source secrets management solution, Conjur, that helps developers align with security priorities.

• Customer Satisfaction: CyberArk has established itself as the security partner of choice for global enterprises across a range of industries – from government and manufacturing, to healthcare and financial services. Today, more than 6,300 customers trust CyberArk solutions to help secure privileged access and deliver advanced Identity Security solutions – this includes more than 50% of the Fortune 500 and more than 35% of the Global 2000. Additionally, IT Central Station and IDG Enterprise both list CyberArk as the top privileged identity management solutions based on product reviews, crowdsourced rankings, and buyer intent data.

Brief Overview

CyberArk delivers the most comprehensive Privileged Access Management solutions for cloud and hybrid environments and across DevOps workflows to reduce risk and improve operational efficiency. CyberArk helps control, manage and audit privileged accounts, credentials and secrets for both human and non-human users, and puts protecting privileged access at the core of its Identity Security vision.

CyberArk believes that all identities can become privileged under certain conditions, making traditional approaches to access management inadequate. Today, users of all types are provisioned some form of privileged access, exposing critical systems to targeted attacks. Over the past year, CyberArk dramatically accelerated delivery of new, innovative solutions to managing privilege-related risk, which is one of the reasons it acquired Idaptive, an Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) leader.

Recent high-profile cyberattacks – including SolarWinds – reinforce that securing privileged access is more important than ever. The CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution takes a risk-based approach to credential and session management, helping organizations enforce least privilege and defend against internal and external threats.

CyberArk continuously scans and monitors environments to discover and manage privileged credentials, isolates those credentials so they are never exposed to an end user, isolates privileged sessions to safeguard critical systems and automatically records and stores those sessions to enhance audit capabilities.

CyberArk delivers the most comprehensive SaaS portfolio for Privileged Access Management including CyberArk Privilege Cloud (PAM-as-a-Service), Endpoint Privilege Manager to enforce least privilege on endpoints, CyberArk Alero for secure remote user access, Idaptive IDaaS solutions and Cloud Entitlements Manager to strengthen security in cloud environments.

In v12, CyberArk expanded the industry’s broadest set of just-in-time capabilities adding increased support for Linux and cloud virtual machines and continued investments in CyberArk Application Access Manager to help better secure machine identities across DevOps workflows, and new support for Ubuntu, Kubernetes, Puppet and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
