I’m confident that these attributes will allow us to bring even better solutions to market, furthering our customers’ and partners’ success, which is the ultimate measure of our own success.”

This acquisition will create a broad solution portfolio for securing and defending organisations against threats related to the compromise and misuse of privileges. More interestingly, this consolidation of the marketplace signals Bomgar’s ambition to snatch CyberArk’s top spot in the industry.
