BeyondTrust’s Vulnerability and Privileged Solutions Mapped to PCI DSS and HIPAA by Coalfire
Validation Allows Organizations to Embrace Virtual Technology While Retaining Control and Auditability of Their Environment
Phoenix, February 20, 2014 - BeyondTrust®, the security industry's only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, today announced that their core solutions have been mapped by Coalfire, an independent information technology governance, risk and compliance (IT GRC) services firm. This mapping provides BeyondTrust with additional insight for Payment Card Industry (PCI) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) reporting specifically in the VMWare environment. With the mapping documented in the BeyondTrust Solution Guide for PCI from Coalfire, BeyondTrust allows organizations of all sizes to embrace virtual technology while retaining control and auditability of their environment.
“The IT landscape has changed, and virtualized environments are more critical today than ever before,” said Brad Hibbert, Vice President, Product Strategy and Operations, BeyondTrust. “Regulatory compliance concerns, such as PCI and HIPAA, continue to be a top challenge for our customers who are moving their sensitive data to virtual data centers. These mappings from Coalfire demonstrate our continued commitment to our customers that our solutions have been independently reviewed and documented in accordance with the highest industry standards for solving your unique business challenges.”
Many organizations are resource-strained by the need to prove ongoing compliance to critical government regulations such as PCI and HIPAA. Aligning internal security processes with regulations, and providing reports to management and auditors, are notoriously time-consuming and costly exercises. Additionally, non-compliance can unavoidably result in penalties, lost business, and other indirect costs. BeyondTrust recently announced the release of BeyondInsight, a new IT risk management platform that unifies Privileged Account Management (PAM) and Vulnerability Management (VM). BeyondInsight’s powerful reporting engine keeps IT security and operations teams aligned and focused on business goals – whether that means complying with PCI and HIPAA on traditional physical assets, or supporting virtual environments as documented by VMware in the VMware QSA Validated PCI Reference Architecture.
"With the publication of the BeyondTrust Solution Guide for PCI, BeyondTrust joins the growing VMware Compliance Partner Eco-system and extends the VMware Compliance Reference Architecture Framework with detailed BeyondTrust product guidance enabling customers to address additional HIPAA and PCI DSS requirements,” said Sanjay Katyal, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. "This guidance for HIPAA and PCI DSS environments provides solution coverage for both vulnerability management and privileged account management, from a single platform vendor, which can address the complex needs of either, or both, regulations.
“Managing compliance and technology risk is a complex process, particularly with respect to virtualized environments where multiple layers of both physical and logical components must be taken into account,” said Noah Weisberger, Practice Director – Cloud & Virtualization, Coalfire. “BeyondTrust offers a number of technology solutions which can support and streamline these efforts, and help drive reduction in both risk and operational costs in a virtualized environment.”
In supporting virtual environments, BeyondInsight provides a common dashboard interface for multiple BeyondTrust point solutions and adds a number of platform capabilities, including asset discovery, reporting and analytics, and more. By centralizing and correlating privilege, access and vulnerability data, the BeyondInsight platform provides IT and security staff with a clearer, more-informed picture of enterprise risk; especially for best practices and regulatory compliance.
