CyberArk Completes Acquisition of Viewfinity, Inc.

October 15, 2015

Extends Privileged Account Security Solution to the Beginning Stages of the Attack Cycle

NEWTON, Mass. & PETACH TIKVAH, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 15, 2015-- CyberArk (NASDAQ: CYBR), the company that protects organizations from cyber attacks that have made their way inside the network perimeter, today announced it has completed the acquisition of privately held Viewfinity, Inc., a provider of Windows least privilege management and application control software for $30.5 million in cash.

With the transaction complete, CyberArk now offers customers a solution that limits the privileges available to business users and applications to only what is needed, while protecting the organization from advanced attacks. This enables organizations to stop the progression of most malware-based attacks at the endpoint, limiting the attacker’s ability to move beyond their initial point of entry. The offering complements CyberArk’s Privileged Account Security Solution and is available as either an on-premise or SaaS-based solution.
