Flexibility. You can’t overstate the importance of flexibility in both delivering solutions to complex IT problems, and in responding nimbly to threats. That’s what the cloud brings: flexibility. It was with flexibility in mind that we released the first privileged access management and vulnerability management platform available in the Amazon AWS Marketplace in September 2016, and it is with flexibility in mind that today we join the Microsoft Azure Marketplace as well.
Our customers should expect this type of strategy and innovation from the overall Leader in the 2016 Forrester Privileged Identity Management Wave. In fact, Microsoft as well has validated this approach.
The BeyondTrust Azure instance is supported by a Bring Your Own Licensing (BYOL) that can be used with:
- PowerBroker Password Safe – Complete management of passwords including workflow, session recording, API access, and analytics
- PowerBroker for Unix & Linux – Command elevation and delegation for Unix and Linux systems
- PowerBroker for Windows – Least privilege and application control with patented technology for Microsoft Windows desktops and servers
- PowerBroker for Mac – Least privilege application management for Mac OS X
- Retina CS – Vulnerability assessment, regulatory reporting, and remediation

This means that customers can use our industry-unique cloud connectors for managing other cloud instances and passwords, and not only for Azure. Cloud platform support includes:
