CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR) today announced it was named an Overall Privileged Access Management Leader for the sixth year in a row in the KuppingerCole Analysts 2021 “Leadership Compass: Privileged Access Management”1 report.
CyberArk earned the Overall Leadership position based on its consistent top performance across Product, Innovation and Market categories. In the report’s comparative overview of vendor ratings, CyberArk once again achieved the highest possible ratings in all categories, including Security, Functionality, Integration, Interoperability and Usability.
This KuppingerCole Leadership Compass evaluated 26 vendors in the Privileged Access Management (PAM) market to help security and Identity and Access Management (IAM) leaders identify and select solutions that will have the greatest impact on their cybersecurity programs.
