BeyondTrust has delivered multiple product innovations through Q1 of 2023 to enhance its solutions and add advanced, customer-centric capabilities to its Identity & Access Security platform.
Privileged Remote Access 23.1 brought to market new Infrastructure Access Management functionality enabling developers, cloud ops engineers, and technical workers to securely and more easily access critical business resources. This release includes:
These new features enhance productivity for technical workers and provide admins with greater control of secure access to their systems.
Privilege Management for Windows & Mac 23.1 and 23.2 introduced new features and capabilities to help customers secure their endpoints, reduce their attack surfaces, make achieving least privilege simple for organizations that often have understaffed and overstretched security teams, and protect their organizations against threat actors of all shapes, sizes, and creativity levels.
With total Microsoft vulnerabilities reaching an all-time high of 1,292 in 2022 (a 7% increase over last year) and Elevation of Privilege continuing to dominate the vulnerability landscape for the third year in a row (accounting for 55% of the total Microsoft vulnerabilities), BeyondTrust’s innovations to its Endpoint Privilege Management solutions provide advanced protection against privilege-based threats.
No single solution can address every use case in the world of cybersecurity. In a recent Dimensional Research study on how Identity Issues Affect Zero Trust Effectiveness, 99% of companies indicated a need for zero trust solutions to integrate with a variety of other applications. According to the same report, 93% of respondents had an identity-related incident in the previous eighteen months, with 81% reporting two or more incidents; 93% of those companies reported their identity issues were caused by integration issues. The BeyondTrust Technology Alliance Program (TAP) is dedicated to enabling seamless integrations that will enable customers to address these challenges. The team expanded the Identity Ecosystem with key partners in the first quarter of 2023.
Key developments for Q1 include:
By maximizing the BeyondTrust solution through these integrations, customers can reduce attack surfaces quickly, unlock advanced inter-product use cases and workflows, and improve productivity and efficiency for our customers.
