CyberArk Alero Demand Ramps Up
June 17, 2020
CyberArk has developed new
advancements for CyberArk Alero that enable remote users to securely
access critical systems managed by CyberArk from any mobile device –
There are nearly 1.3 billion feature phones, or non-smartphones, still
in use around the globe, which can be attributed to a number of factors
including geography, government regulations and industry preferences.
Smartphone adoption use in emerging countries, for example, is less than
45 percent and across Europe, employees avoid using personal phones for
work, putting the onus on organizations to find alternate solutions,
which may not always be a smartphone.
By combining Zero Trust and multi-factor authentication, CyberArk Alero
is a SaaS-based solution that provides fast, easy and secure privileged
access for remote users based on a passwordless, biometrics approach. In
cases where smartphone use is limited, Alero now supports SMS and push
notifications, expanding the number of remote users such as third party
vendors, employees and contractors who often require privileged access
to sensitive systems and data to do their jobs.
addition, CyberArk also announced that it has added a new datacenter in
Frankfurt, Germany to address increasing global demand for Alero. This
datacenter will accompany existing datacenters in North America –
extending Alero’s global footprint. Finally, furthering its investments
in innovation, CyberArk has now been granted six patents for a variety
of Alero features including biometric authentication.
“Since there is no one-size fits all approach to security, CyberArk
continues to evolve the capabilities of Alero and expand the use cases
the service addresses to support customers in all industries and
geographic locations,” said Gil Rapaport, vice president, CyberArk Alero.
“We are proud of the continued investments focused on driving innovation
and adoption of Alero by delivering greater flexibility, access and
value to our customers.”
