This week, Keeper Security
announced that it has been identified as a leading privileged access management (PAM) provider for its product strength and cost-efficiency. The recognition comes from analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates® (EMA™
) in its latest research report: EMA Radar™ for Privileged Access Management
EMA provides an unbiased view of the market landscape, ensuring organisations of all sizes can understand the benefits and drawbacks of cybersecurity solutions. According to EMA research,
79% of organisations consider PAM to be very important or critical to their business operations, while Keeper’s research
found 91% of IT leaders said their PAM solution gives them more control over privileged user activity. The EMA PAM Radar compares the product strengths and cost-efficiencies of these imperative cybersecurity solutions which define, control and manage access to an organisation’s most sensitive accounts, systems and applications.
“The EMA Radar distinguishes Keeper as a ‘Value Leader’ that delivers strong products and platform architectures for a comparatively low total cost of ownership,” said Steve Brasen, EMA Research Director for Endpoint and Identify Management.
He continued: “EMA’s evaluation of the PAM market space also finds that Keeper Security provides the most comprehensive and easy-to-use methods for securely sharing privileged passwords– a critical first line of defence for any cybersecurity strategy.”
The EMA Radar highlights Keeper’s success in providing an easy-to-deploy platform with broad functionality including password management, dark web monitoring, secure file and secrets storage, compliance reporting, alerting, session monitoring and secure messaging. As a cloud-hosted SaaS solution, the report notes that KeeperPAM requires no on-premises infrastructure deployments, and because it’s agentless and clientless, no additional software is needed. KeeperPAM was also recognised with the ‘Special Award for Best Password Sharing.’
“Keeper is proud to be distinguished by EMA as a market leader in privileged access management,” said Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security. “KeeperPAM was designed with a zero-trust and zero-knowledge security architecture to enable organisations to achieve complete visibility, security, control and reporting across every privileged user on every device in their organisation. This recognition further solidifies that we are successfully addressing the needs of the dynamic cybersecurity market as devastating cyberattacks threaten businesses and individuals alike.”

Keeper performs security audits on password strength and reuse in the end-user’s vault and BreachWatch provides a dark web scan to identify compromised credentials.
