PORTSMOUTH, NH. – May 26, 2009 — BeyondTrust Corporation, the first provider of Least Privilege Management solutions, announced today that it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring 100 North America Award. Winners were selected by Red Herring from a pool of over 1,200 companies based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation and management. This recognition reflects BeyondTrust’s unprecedented success over the past year, during which the company’s revenues grew by 90 percent, and order volume, revenues and sales bookings all set company records. BeyondTrust was one of only eight companies to win from the category of "Security & Defense. "
"It is a true honor to be recognized as a leading technology company in North America by Red Herring," said John Moyer, CEO, BeyondTrust. "This award validates our success in delivering innovative solutions to eliminate administrator rights throughout the enterprise. We could not have accomplished this tremendous achievement without the dedication of our entire team to helping customers effectively implement the security best practice of Least Privilege."
BeyondTrust enables organizations to remove administrator rights and still allow end-users to run all required Windows applications, processes and ActiveX controls that are needed in order for end-users to do their jobs. Eliminating administrator rights is one of the most effective ways for enterprises to meet compliance mandates and reduce their vulnerability to attacks by spyware, malware and malicious users.
Over the past year, BeyondTrust has benefited directly from increased corporate focus on compliance, data breach prevention and IT labor cost reduction, which are all addressed by adopting a Least Privilege security approach in which employees run without administrator rights. BeyondTrust has also experienced rapid adoption of its Least Privilege Management solutions across all segments of the government sector based on compliance pressures related to the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) mandate. More than 500 customers worldwide have selected BeyondTrust Privilege Manager because it makes it easy to enforce Least Privilege security in an enterprise Windows environment without impacting an employee’s ability to do their job.
