Customer deals highlighted in this quarter include a large US retailer using CyberArk to secure Jenkins, Pivotal Cloud Foundry and other DevOps tools as part of its application development running in Google Cloud Platform. A Fortune 100 financial services firm chose CyberArk for its scalability in AWS and Azure environments and because CyberArk was the only vendor who could protect its extensive RPA project with UiPath. CyberArk logged 150 new logos in Q1, bringing the company’s total customer base to more than 4,600 customers globally, including more than 50% of the Fortune 500.
- Market Leadership: CyberArk was named an overall Privileged Access Management leader by KuppingerCole Analysts. CyberArk also made a number of key appointments including Francois Auque, former CEO of the Airbus space division and Chairman of Airbus Ventures, to its Board of Directors, Rich Wenning as vice president of North American sales and Clarence Hinton as senior vice president of corporate development.
CyberArk Labs continues to explore vulnerabilities that inform product roadmap decisions and help customers “think like an attacker.” In Q1, CyberArk Labs published new research demonstrating how attackers can take advantage of emerging DevOps environments and manipulate container defense-in-depth strategies to gain access to a network. Also, by issuing industry research, such as “The CISO View: Protecting Privileged Access in DevOps and Cloud Environments” that provides advice on protecting DevOps processes, CyberArk is helping customers secure the expanding attack surface.
