CyberArk has announced new advancements for CyberArk Alero that enable remote users to securely access critical systems managed by CyberArk from any mobile device – including non-smartphones. 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.
In addition, CyberArk also announced that it has added a new datacentre in Frankfurt, Germany to address increasing global demand for Alero. This datacentre will accompany existing datacentres 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.”
