CyberArk Wins Best Advanced Persistent Threat Protection in SC Awards Europe 2014

CyberArk, the company securing the heart of the enterprise, today announced that it has been selected as Best Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection at the SC Awards Europe 2014. The CyberArk Privileged Account Security solution was selected from a group of finalists representing the best the information security industry has to offer. CyberArk was also ranked ‘highly commended’ in the identity management category.

“Privileged and administrative credentials are a predominant exploit for advanced attacks because they empower attackers to become de facto insiders and commandeer a company’s infrastructure. Preventing the exploitation of these accounts is critical in protecting against the latest attacks,” said John Worrall, CMO, CyberArk. “We’re honored to receive recognition by an organization that truly understands the security threats that organizations face today. This award validates our approach as CyberArk continues to develop innovative solutions to protect against an increasingly menacing threat landscape.”

Hundreds of vendors and service providers entered the product and service categories. The CyberArk Privileged Account Security solution was selected as the winner by a judge’s panel, hand-picked by members of SC Magazine’s editorial team. These judges include representatives from end-user companies, analysts and independent consulting firms and academia—many of whom are practicing and former CISOs.

“After being narrowed down to a select group of finalists, our judges poured over the entries to thoroughly compare each product against its peers,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “CyberArk was selected as the winner in this year’s SC Awards Europe for its ability to best meet the needs of its customers.”

The SC Awards are recognized as a high mark of achievement for information-technology security professionals and products. The annual awards showcase the best solutions, services and professionals working to fend off the myriad security threats in today’s corporate world. SC Magazine distinguishes the achievements of the security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the dedicated work of government, commercial and nonprofits.
