Pathlock announced the company was prominently featured in two KuppingerCole Analysts AG Leadership Compass industry reports. Pathlock was featured as an overall leader in the ’Access Control Tools for Multi-Vendor LoB Environments’ report and was named a Product Leader and Innovation Leader in the ’Access Control Tools for SAP Environments’ report.
The reports provide an overview of the market for Access Control Tools for business application environments. According to the reports, the Pathlock platform was recognized as a leading-edge solution in the access control market for SAP and other LoB (Line of Business) applications. While providing leading-edge support for SAP environments, Pathlock’s particular strength stems from the excellent support for a wide range of other LoB applications, thus serving the needs of customers running heterogeneous LoB application environments.
The breadth of Pathlock’s product portfolio significantly contributed to their overall success, which was bolstered by the company’s strategic M&A activity last year where they announced their merger with Appsian and Security Weaver, and acquisition of CSI Tools, SAST Solutions, and Grey Monarch. The company was also recognized in the report for their:
Broad support for a wide range of LoB applications
In-depth support for SAP environments

"Based on the integration of capabilities that Pathlock has acquired, it delivers an extensive set of features and substantial breadth in platform support."
