We’re honored to be a GSN Homeland Security Award winner once again.”
Only CyberArk enables government agencies to eliminate the most advanced cyber threats – initiated by external attackers and malicious insiders – by identifying existing privileged credentials across networks, making sure those credentials are locked down and secure, and utilizing continuous monitoring to detect anomalous behavior and stop an attack early in the cycle to reduce damage. Additionally, as government agencies continue to invest in DevOps processes and cloud-based technologies, CyberArk’s innovative solutions are best positioned to protect agencies against an expanding attack surface.
