A simple UI allows PowerBroker for Windows users to define regulatory compliance, risk and age in relative terms.How is PowerBroker for Windows so vulnerability savvy? Simple: BeyondTrust Retina. Without any additional licensing, PowerBroker uses a subset of the Retina Network Security Scanner’s vulnerability database to evaluate applications as they are launched and take runtime actions based the rules and policies that you create. These actions can be passive, allow privilege escalation to administrator, remove administrative permissions, or even prevent the application from launching – all in real-time based on the application’s published vulnerabilities. Since vulnerabilities and risk evolve everyday, the BeyondInsight IT Risk Management Platform seamlessly allows PowerBroker agents to process the latest application-based vulnerabilities list as a part of its normal reporting communications. Rules can be vendor or compliance specific, or generic enough to catch all relevant vulnerabilities upon launch. The result is real-time application vulnerability assessment and application management. Vulnerability-Based Application Management is a natural extension of other technologies we already know in the space: Network Access Control (NAC), Access Control List (ACL), and plain whitelist or blacklist Application Control (AC). Applications can be measured for risk and permissions decided based on that risk. Whitelisting and blacklisting methodologies based on hash databases do not consider the application vulnerabilities, and traditional privilege identity solutions fail to consider application risk as a part of the least-privilege model. With PowerBroker for Windows and Vulnerability-Based Application Management, BeyondTrust is changing the way Application Control should be implemented. Learn more about PowerBroker for Windows.
