BeyondTrust Launches BeyondSaaS

Cloud-based solution scans externally facing Web pages and IP addresses for vulnerabilities

San Diego, CA, November 18, 2013 – BeyondTrust, the security industry's only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, today announced the release of BeyondSaaS, an easy-to-use, cost effective cloud-based vulnerability assessment scanning solution. This new offering enables customers to achieve PCI DSS compliance by scanning externally facing webpages and IP addresses for vulnerabilities. BeyondSaaS simplifies the entire vulnerability management process by allowing an organization to rapidly assess public facing assets and manage all of the job scheduling, reporting and results using the latest web browser technology.

"Dynamic IT environments coupled with increasingly sophisticated attack methods make it imperative that organizations have the ability to look at IT assets outside the protection of their firewalls," said Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product strategy and operations at BeyondTrust. "BeyondSaaS provides a unique perspective of assets as they appear on the Internet and as attackers may view them from any browser, tablet, or smartphone."

BeyondSaaS is highly cost-effective requiring no hardware or software, as assessments are made completely from the cloud on a scheduled or ad-hoc basis. With this new offering, customers no longer need to use expensive and complex third party scanners that produce overwhelming results. BeyondSaaS comes fully configured with the industry's most respected and validated security scanner, the Retina Network Security Scanner, to help efficiently identify IT exposures and prioritize remediation company-wide. BeyondSaaS is immediately available for purchase. For more information, please visit: http://go.beyondtrust.com/beyondsaas?src=prs

"With the release of BeyondSaaS, BeyondTrust is providing a trusted hands-free approach to vulnerability management and regulatory compliance with a higher degree of accuracy and a lower annual cost," said Kevin Baker, principal at Innovative Management LLC.

BeyondSaaS is designed to meet the stringent external scanning requirements by PCI, SOX, GLBA, and other regulatory compliance initiatives. The new offering is fully automated and enables organizations to achieve PCI DSS compliance with complete vulnerability assessment and web application scanning. While providing automated PCI compliance of external devices and assets, BeyondSaaS also enables automated asset discovery to ensure accurate PCI scoping and reporting in the proper format for PCI DSS submission with merchants.

BeyondSaaS features also include:

· Integrated Microsoft Live authentication

· Web application assessment

· Vulnerability assessment

· Management from any tablet or mobile device

· Simplified whitelisting of scan engines in the cloud

· Unlimited assessments per asset

BeyondTrust CTO Marc Maiffret and Senior Director of Program Management, Morey Haber will host two public webcasts on Thursday, November 21st to showcase the BeyondSaaS technology through a live demo and answer questions from the audience.
