Hewlett Packard Enterprise Delivers Privileged Account Management Service With CyberArk to Thwart Cyber Attacks

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 26, 2016) - Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ( NYSE : HPE ) today announced the HPE Privileged Account Management (PAM) Service offering, an extension to its HPE Managed Security Services (MSS) portfolio. In partnership with privileged account security software leader CyberArk ( NASDAQ : CYBR ), this offering is designed to help customers more effectively mitigate the heightened risk associated with privileged accounts, enforce more consistent application of security policies, and reduce manual efforts and administrative costs.

The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution provides a comprehensive solution for operating systems, databases, applications, hypervisors, network devices, and security appliances.
