BeyondTrust gets recognition in Gartner Magic Quadrant for PAM 2020

ICT Value Chain Vendor

BeyondTrust announced it has been named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management for the second time in a row. BeyondTrust is recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute. BeyondTrust also has one of the highest scores in the companion Critical Capabilities for Privileged Access Management research note in both the Global and Large &Midsize Enterprises Use Cases.

BeyondTrust’s innovative universal Privilege Management approach to PAM goes beyond simply managing passwords in a vault for a limited set of privileged users. The company’s integrated PAM solutions enable security and IT professionals to manage the explosion of privileges across their entire enterprise to drastically reduce the attack surface. BeyondTrust’s unique approach to PAM is more relevant than ever amid the challenges of the pandemic and resulting work from the home shift, exemplified by BeyondTrust’s 35 percent YOY growth in the first half of 2020.

“We believe BeyondTrust’s position as a Leader, along with our rapid market growth, validates our Universal Privilege Management model that delivers the protection and productivity required by modern enterprises,” said Matt Dircks, CEO of BeyondTrust. “With attacks targeting remote users—such as phishing and malware—rising, and budgets and resources declining, our ability to secure privileges across every user, session, and asset, paired with quick deployments and out-of-the-box integrations, delivers the security and efficiencies today’s customers require.”

In the Critical Capabilities research note, BeyondTrust scores well across all critical PAM use cases, ranking 2nd in both the Global and Large & Midsize Enterprises Use Cases.

While password and session management (PASM) remains a critical component of PAM, as privileged threats increasingly exploit endpoints and remote access pathways, privilege elevation and delegation management (PEDM) and secure remote access (SRA) is also crucial to any modern PAM strategy. As BeyondTrust outlines in its Universal Privilege Management model, it takes all three pillars working together to holistically address today’s threatscape and expanding PAM use cases.
