Announced today, our Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution won the 2018 New Product of the Year Award from Security Today for the cyber defense solutions category. The Security Today New Product of the Year Award honors outstanding products that are noteworthy in their ability to improve IT security. This year, more than 100 entries were received in the independently juried contest.
Two of the biggest problems in cybersecurity today are the dual threat of remote access and unsecured privileged credentials. Legacy access tools no longer provide the protection required to defend modern enterprises, and poor identity and access management processes continue to contribute to the frequency of cyberattacks – thus making the development of a comprehensive privileged access strategy crucial to every organization.
An honor to be recognized, this award is another well-earned feather in our cap that validates our commitment to helping organizations secure access to their most critical systems and assets to defend against today’s cyber threats.
A Comprehensive Privileged Access Management Solution
Following the acquisition of Lieberman Software earlier this year, we began delivering a best-in-class PAM solution that secures administrative access to systems and applications in the IT infrastructure, while defending the credentials that grant this access.
Our recent acquisition of Avecto adds another layer of defense at the endpoint. With Avecto’s endpoint privilege management technology, our customers can remove excess admin rights and only elevate privileges for approved applications and actions.
We also recently released the new Discovery Tool.
