What is The Forrester Wave?

The Forrester Wave is an evaluation of vendors in the software, hardware, or services markets, driven by the analysis of data collected from the marketplace. In the 22-criteria evaluation of the 12 most significant vulnerability risk management providers, Forrester analysts researched, analyzed, and scored each participant. The report details how each provider measures up, and provides security and risk (S&R) professionals with deep insights into selecting a vendor that best meets their needs.

How BeyondTrust fared in The Forrester Wave: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q1 2018

The inclusion criteria for this Forrester Wave are grouped into three high-level categories: Remediation prioritization based on threat intelligence, substantial enterprise level experience and significant mindshare with Forrester clients. The Forester Wave evaluation gave BeyondTrust the highest possible scores for the following evaluation criteria:

  • Endpoint Agent Integration
  • Total Cost of Ownership
  • Product Roadmap

BeyondTrust believes that the results of this vendor evaluation speak to three of its core differentiators.

Value Delivered

The report states, “BeyondTrust supports a robust set of features at an incredible price point.” And “If you’re looking for a cost-effective solution for scanning your infrastructure with risk and compliance reporting, this is an excellent choice.”

BeyondTrust has long delivered the most value and tremendous ROI, and we believe this report validates that.

Reporting

The report states, “The asset management and reporting capabilities of the BeyondInsight product differentiate by giving customers a holistic view of the security posture of all the groups within the organization; the service-level agreement (SLA) reporting even has an email subscription capability so stakeholders can have regular updates without logging into the dashboard.”

Unless delivered in a consumable way that quickly enables security leaders to make decisions, data is useless. It’s the information delivered via robust reporting that BeyondTrust delivers.

Customer Focus

The report states, “Client feedback is positive with regard to BeyondTrust’s responsiveness to both feature requests and support issues, and professional services are available as needed.”

BeyondTrust actively engages with customers throughout the customer lifecycle ensuring that we deliver what we promise.

Vulnerability management continues to be a fundamental security layer that spans on-premise, cloud and IoT systems. Properly enabled vulnerability management therefore mitigates risks to these assets by reducing attack surfaces, creating barriers to lateral movement, and through proactive threat detection – capabilities that are built-in to the Retina enterprise vulnerability management platform.
