SAN DIEGO, Calif. – June 12, 2013 – BeyondTrust, the security industry's only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, today announced the release of Retina CS 4.5. With this release, the Retina CS platform continues to extend BeyondTrust's leadership in risk identification and prioritization. By integrating PowerBroker product portfolio with Retina CS, customers are able to combine vulnerability data with privileged identity and password management risk intelligence, providing improved situational awareness when it when it comes to prioritizing risk reduction and remediation.

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 the entire IT landscape – servers, desktops, as well as mobile and virtual assets and those which reside in the cloud.

"With Retina CS, in addition to already incredibly strong capabilities around traditional vulnerabilities, BeyondTrust customers can now enhance risk based decision making by understanding how assets are being used and potentially exposed by delegated administrators," said Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product strategy and operations at BeyondTrust. "Customers can now encourage a risk driven culture across both security and operations teams. Security teams gain insight into operational activities to improve prioritization of remediation activities, and operations teams can consider the risks associated with assets when prioritizing and tightening least privilege policy."

BeyondTrust provides total visibility where organizations can easily identify the vulnerabilities on any given machine and make better-informed decisions around the delegation of privileges, root delegation and password management on those systems. When privilege and identity management and vulnerability management are used in concert, both security and operations teams are provided an incredibly powerful zero-gap coverage model for their diverse IT environments. As such, BeyondTrust is the only vendor providing a truly unified security management platform through its vulnerability management and privilege and identity management integration.

Enabling these extended capabilities of Retina CS 4.5, BeyondTrust today also announced the integration of its award-winning vulnerability management solution with PowerBroker Servers for Linux & Unix and PowerBroker Password Safe.

PowerBroker UNIX & Linux coupled with Retina CS now provides unsurpassed deep reporting and analytics capabilities empowering organizations to look companywide at the activities occurring on critical Linux and UNIX servers from a root delegation perspective.

PowerBroker Password Safe integrated with Retina CS provides unmatched reporting and analytics capabilities to secure access to privileged accounts in heterogeneous IT environments.

In addition to these product portfolio integrations, new features and enhancements to Retina CS 4.5 include:

Smart group filtering by new class of Smart Rules for Vulnerabilities

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) data enhancements and expanded reporting capabilities

Offline VMware scanning of Windows guest OS's

Data discovery (Personally Identifiable Information) reporting and analytics

Expanded and new reports on key project areas (access, privilege, PCI, patches, file integrity, benchmark, etc.)

Recently the company announced expanded Retina CS integration for PowerBroker for Windows 6.0, the industry's first identity management solution able to leverage least privilege and vulnerability data, allowing customers to take a system's overall risk into context when deciding what level of privileges a user or system should be given.
