2006 – a good year for Cyber-Ark
According to Cyber-Ark, 2006 marked a year of tremendous prosperity and growth in the emerging Privileged Password Management (PPM) market as regulatory compliance, along with a slew of highly publicized network breaches, are finally forcing enterprises to prove the security of their administrative or privileged passwords. Cyber-Ark highlights from 2006 include the industry’s first PPM survey of IT professionals, the release of Enterprise Password VaultÃ¢â€ž? (EPV) 4.0, the addition of more than 100 customers worldwide, new corporate and European headquarters as well as a number of prestigious industry award recognitions.
“Our remarkable success over the past year shows that customers around the world choose Cyber-Ark as their technology of choice for Privileged Password Management,” said Udi Mokady, Founder, President and CEO of Cyber-Ark Software. “This company is built on technology excellence and determination. While others are releasing first-generation point solutions to address the privileged password problem, we’ve long recognized the security and compliance threat of mismanaged privileged accounts and have eliminated the problem with the release of our fourth generation EPV product.”
