Cyber-Ark is fulfilling a pressing need in the market for the extension of secure identity management solutions, said Sally Hudson, research manager for IDCs Security Services and Identity Management Products program. Cyber-Arks latest release of Enterprise Password Vault is designed to provide a safe haven where all privileged users' passwords can be securely archived, transferred, shared, and managed by authorized users. This technology will allow enterprise organizations to significantly enhance overall security both from an internal and external perspective.
