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 has been named a 2016 Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Awards winner.
GSN’s 8th Annual Homeland Security Awards Program recognizes the most innovative, important technologies and strategies by U.S. and International IT and cyber security companies, physical security companies and federal, state, county and municipal government agencies. CyberArk was named a winner in the Best Continuous Monitoring and Mitigation Solution category and a finalist for the Best Physical Logical Privileged Access Management Solution.
The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution offers proactive protection of privileged credentials while also enabling federal government organizations to respond to advanced cyber threats. Proactive protection includes the secure storage and management of privileged credentials, monitoring and isolation of privileged account sessions, and the enforcement of least privilege and application control at the endpoint. The CyberArk solution also features targeted analytics and the ability to analyze network traffic to better detect indications of an attack early in the lifecycle, including credential theft, lateral movement and privilege escalation. CyberArk enables incident response teams to quickly identify threats and shut down in-progress attacks.
“Privileged account protection and threat detection are at the center of many federal requirements designed to secure agencies from both internal and external threats,” said Kevin Corbett, director of U.S. Federal Business at CyberArk. “This award program highlights the important work that needs to be done to help federal government agencies identify and respond to potential threats and harden their IT infrastructure through adopting a combination of key practices including securing, monitoring and protecting privileged credentials. CyberArk is proud to be recognized by GSN and to be a valued security partner across the U.S. federal government.”
CyberArk is committed to helping federal government agencies and global enterprises protect and secure privileged accounts. This award follows the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution receiving the U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness (Army CoN) and being added to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL). CyberArk was granted Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level EAL 2+ in 2015. CyberArk can help meet security and compliance requirements for Federal government organizations including FISMA, NIST SP 800-53, Department of Homeland Security Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program, NERC-CIP and HSPD-12.
