NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the company that protects organizations from cyber attacks that have made their way inside the network perimeter, today announced it won the Identity and Authentication Management Award at NetworkWorld Asia Information Management Awards 2015. The annual awards program, organized by Questex Asia, recognizes the best vendors in information security, storage and data management in Asia.
“Privileged accounts represent the largest security vulnerability an organization faces today. In the hands of an external attacker or malicious insider, privileged accounts allow attackers to take full control of an organization’s IT infrastructure, disable security controls, steal confidential information, commit financial fraud and disrupt operations. Organizations are realizing how critical cyber security is, and they recognize that it is much more impactful to take a proactive path to security by protecting, managing, monitoring and analyzing activity on privileged accounts,” said John Worrall, chief marketing officer, CyberArk. “This award recognizes CyberArk’s commitment to protecting our customers’ businesses from potential adversaries.”
The three-phase nomination process involved nominations from numerous vendor partners, resellers and Questex Asia’s Enterprise Team to NetworkWorld Asia’s editorial team for consideration in 30 award categories. More than 100 regional IT leaders and CIOs of end-user organizations were invited to vote for a winner in each category.
“There is a growing need among Asian enterprises today to protect their digital assets from insider attacks or accidental leakage. The award highlights the unrivalled breadth and depth, as well as the importance of the privileged account security solution that CyberArk offers today,” said Victor Ng, Southeast Asia bureau chief of NetworkWorld Asia. “We congratulate CyberArk for attaining this well-deserved honor.”
