BeyondTrust Releases PowerBroker For Windows 5.5

PowerBroker for Windows 5.5 includes advanced analytics and reporting capabilities

CARLSBAD, Calif. – January 23, 2013 – BeyondTrust, the security industry’s only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, today announced the release of PowerBroker for Windows 5.5, the industry’s first identity management solution able to leverage the security context provided by vulnerability and privilege data, which allows customers to more effectively manage the risk of their Windows systems. This release also includes integration with the award-winning Retina CS Threat Management Console, providing robust, enterprise-ready analytics and reporting capabilities for PowerBroker Windows deployments, as well as support for implementing least privilege on Windows 8 systems.

PowerBroker for Windows is the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way to secure Windows systems through the implementation of least privilege. It reduces help desk burdens and costs, while increasing the security of the Windows infrastructure. This new release allows IT organizations to effortlessly benefit from system and application vulnerability data when considering the requirements of elevated privileges for users, tasks and applications. Employing this approach, BeyondTrust customers can make more informed security strategy decisions, based on a system’s overall risk and susceptibility to attacks.

"The high velocity of change in today’s enterprise infrastructure often means security teams are making critical business decisions based on threats, regardless of the actual context of those threats,” said Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product engineering at BeyondTrust. “This new product release allows organizations to make more effective security decisions, by delivering the context that can only be provided by fusing both vulnerability and privileged identity information.”

BeyondTrust is dedicated to helping their customers meet today’s security challenges by providing innovative security and compliance solutions. A common challenge with privilege management is the need to take a system’s overall risk into context when deciding what level of privileges a user or system should be given. Leveraging the real-time application events provided by PowerBroker for Windows, the BeyondTrust threat engine’s patent pending virtual application scans enable immediate alerting and threat prioritization of vulnerable application usage enabling more proactive remediation of the most critical and vulnerable assets.

Retina CS is the centerpiece of the BeyondTrust vision of Context Aware Security Intelligence which helps organizations answer the most pressing questions in security – what to fix first, what to fix next and why. Retina CS does this through unmatched security intelligence and analytics for an entire IT landscape.
