We are delighted to announce that BeyondTrust achieved first place for the 2019 ASTORS Platinum Award for Privileged Access Security. This comes as we look to close out a huge year in our story, and continue to drive innovation and build on our technology leadership in the privileged access management space.

What Are the ASTORS Awards?
The ‘ASTORS’ Award program is an annual competition run by American Security Today, which focuses on new and evolving homeland security threats. ASTORS is the largest and most prestigious U.S. Homeland Security awards program in the industry, and serves to acknowledge and reward the most cutting-edge security solutions on the market today. More specifically, it’s intended to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that help keep The United State of America secure by delivering enhanced value, benefits, and security intelligence to end users across a variety of homeland security, enterprise, and public safety markets.
This year’s ASTORS featured a compelling keynote address by William (Bill) Bratton, former police commissioner of the NYPD, the BPD, and former chief of the LAPD, on the history of policing in America and the evolution of critical communication capabilities in the post 9/11 landscape.
Thousands of government, security industry, and public safety professionals convened in New York City to meet with experts from over 350 industry-leading innovators and technical reps, at the Northeast’s largest physical and IT security trade show to check out the latest in security technologies.
