BeyondTrust Access Extender

BeyondTrust Protocol Tunneling extends the remote connectivity and auditing capabilities of proprietary and/or 3rd party applications, such as integration control systems or custom database tools. BeyondTrust simplifies this complex task into a consumable process that removes the need for an intricate VPN solution.

BeyondTrust SUDO Manager

Shell Jump credential injection can be used in conjunction with SUDO.


BeyondTrust Vault is an on-appliance credential store that enables your users to access privileged credentials and inject them directly into an endpoint. Eliminate the need for users to memorize or manually track passwords, increasing productivity and security. Add privileged credentials to Vault manually, or try the built-in Discovery tool to automatically find and protect AD and local credentials.

The Vault certificate authority now generates short lived x.509 certificates to unlock just-in-time access to any endpoint that supports them (beyond just SSH), including Kubernetes, SMTP, LDAP, and any other protocol built on HTTPS.

The Vault Accounts tab in the Access Console enables users to check in and out Vault accounts that the administrator has defined. This enables users to leverage Vault accounts for session activity or locally on their own device, improving user experience and productivity by enabling access to Jump Items and Vault accounts from one location.

Cancel Access Request Users can cancel pending Jump Access authorization requests from the Web Console, providing more flexibility and control over the authorization process, extending the existing functionality of the desktop Access Console.
Canned Scripts Use pre-written scripts from either the Command Shell interface or the Screen Sharing interface, increasing session efficiency by automating common processes.
Cloud Access AWS KMS Support AWS Key Management Service (KMS) makes it easy to create and manage cryptographic keys and control their use in AWS services and applications. AWS KMS is a secure and resilient service that uses hardware security modules.
Command Filtering

Protect against common user mistakes during SSH sessions by applying basic filtering to the input at the command line. For devices or B Series Appliances where agents are not practical or possible, command filtering provides an extra layer of control for administrators who need to provide access to that endpoint.

Command Shell Directly access the command shell for system diagnostics, network troubleshooting, or low-bandwidth access, without screen sharing.

Command Shell Display Settings

Command shell settings allow for changing the font, color, and size of the displayed text within the access console. Unicode characters are supported within a command shell.

BYOT Database Proxy

Privileged Remote Access can now proxy the Microsoft SQL Server protocol, enabling credential injection and improved auditing capabilities for Privileged Remote Access customers. There is a new setting under Protocol Tunnel Jump items for Database Tunneling.

CLI Tool for APIs

Privileged Remote Access customers now have a simpler method to leverage and interact with the Configuration APIs using a new CLI tool provided by BeyondTrust. When bundled with our expanded documentation, this new tool makes it easier to integrate your Privileged Remote Access instance with cloud environments or other infrastructure. It is available in the API Management section of /login.

Configuration APIs

This set of APIs enables Privileged Remote Access administrators to automate and orchestrate administrative tasks within /login and the Access Console. There are specific methods exposed via an API that enable a programmatic way to create, list, update, and delete certain configuration items in Privileged Remote Access. For example, administrators can use the API to create local user accounts or delete Jump Clients that have been offline for a specified number of days. Other enabled use cases include tasks for managing Jump Groups, Jump Items, Vendor Groups and Users, Group Policies, Vault Accounts, Vault Account Groups, and Personal Vault Accounts.

The Group Policy Configuration APIs (GET, POST, and PATCH) have been enhanced to allow administrators to read and set the access permission settings.

The Configuration API documentation can be found under /login > Management > API Configuration.

Privileged Remote Access administrators can now benefit more easily from the automation and onboarding improvements that come with the usage of existing Configuration APIs. In this release, these administrators now have prebuilt scripts that enable automation use cases more simply for specific situations, particularly Jump Item management and automation with AWS, AD, and Azure.

Configurable Login Banner

Configure a banner to display before users can log into either the /login interface or the /appliance interface. If the banner is enabled, then users attempting to access either /login or /appliance must agree to the rules and restrictions you specify before being allowed to log in.

The Login Agreement can be presented as part of the access console as a granular setting. Administrators can choose where this agreement is displayed, and the same message is presented when launching the access console or accessing the web administration interface.

Delegate Password Administration Delegate the task of resetting local users' passwords to privileged users, without also granting full administrator permissions.
Delegate User Management

Administrators can create a group policy type to onboard and manage vendors and other users. An assigned vendor admin for a policy can manage onboarding and offboarding of managed users for that policy.

Administrators can define up to 150 vendor groups.

HTTP Outbound Event Enhancements

Administrators can view the latest status of existing HTTP outbound recipients and have visibility into the number of events queued for each configured recipient.

Vendor Onboarding

Improved the user interface for vendor groups, providing more visibility and a streamlined workflow for vendor management. Administrators can see users requiring immediate action, and Vendor User expiration information can be displayed for each user.

Vendor Onboarding - User Registration Portal

Administrators can enable Vendor Users to request or sign up for access through a customizable portal page. This functionality is an addition to the Vendor Groups section on the Users & Security > Vendors page. Administrators can create and customize portal pages for specific vendors, allowing users to register for the access they need, when they need it. The Vendor Portal can be restricted to specific email domains as well as existing network restrictions for the vendor group. Vendor User self-registration through the Vendor Portal always requires approval for user creation by the defined administrator of the vendor group.

Vendor Group Increase

The vendor group limit is 150.

Vendors - PRA Admin Granularity

PRA administrators have the option to delegate all notifications and workflow approvals to any PRA user in an associated vendor group. PRA administrator privileges are still required to change security and configuration settings for the vendor group. Previously, all vendor groups required a full PRA administrator to be the recipient of notifications and approvals.

Vendor User Expiration Notification

Vendor Users can be notified of an upcoming expiration date as well as a notification of expiration. The PRA administrator or the PRA user overseeing the vendor group can extend a Vendor User’s expiration date before it is expired. Additionally, vendor administrators can reactivate expired Vendor Users. User activation was limited to the PRA administrator overseeing the vendor group in previous versions.

Vendor User Password Reset

Vendor Users can now receive a password reset link. Anyone who can edit the Vendor User page can click the Email Password Reset Link button.

Notification and Approval Workflows

Notification and approval workflows are available for user onboarding. This decreases manual administration of vendor management and allows faster access for new users.
Message Broadcast Send a pop-up message to all users logged into the access console.
Multi-Factor Authentication

Gain the security of multi-factor authentication for your local and LDAP user accounts by enabling time-based, one-time passwords. When logging into BeyondTrust, users must provide a one-time password generated by a separate device or authentication app.

Multiple /appliance User Accounts

Create multiple user accounts for the /appliance interface. Set rules regarding account lockouts and password requirements. SAML can also be used to log directly into /appliance.

Search Functionality in /login

Users can search for specific sections and settings throughout the administrative interface. This functionality allows easier discovery and access to various information and configuration that would have previously been more difficult to find. This functionality is available everywhere in the /login interface.

Scheduled Discovery

The Vault administrator can define a preset day and time to automatically run Vault domain discovery jobs. This feature can provide continuous visibility for administrators regarding domain accounts, endpoints, and local accounts associated with discovery jobs. Accounts and endpoints found in the new discovery job can then be imported into Vault for management.

Service Account Management

Vault can discover and import Windows service accounts for management. Administrators can leverage this new discovery functionality to gain visibility into the service accounts in the domains managed by Vault, as well as the descriptions and associated services for the accounts.
Session Permission Policies Customize session permissions to fit specific scenarios, not just specific users. You can change the permissions allowed in a session based on the specific endpoint being supported. Session permission policies provide flexibility in building the security model for each specific scenario.

Session Policies for All Jump Items

Administrators can assign session policies to all Jump Items, enabling additional granularity for Jump Item policies.
Teams Create teams based on skill set or experience level.
Team Collaboration Define how multiple teams may interact.
Templates Copy an existing security provider, session policy, or group policy to create a new object with similar settings. You also can export a session policy or group policy and import those permissions into a policy on another site.
User Accounts Create an unlimited number of named user accounts.
User Account Details Reporting Export account information about your user accounts for auditing purposes.
User Collaboration Define session sharing options.
User Login Schedule

Exert control over access console availability to specific users by restricting when users are able to log in.

Vault Account Groups

Vault administrators can organize Vault accounts into account groups, providing a better management experience for Vault admins. Admins can assign account groups to group policies, rather than only individual Vault accounts, and Vault accounts can be assigned to an account group during the import process.

Vault Accounts associated with Endpoints

Vault accounts are automatically associated with endpoints, providing a better user experience when injecting credentials into Privileged Remote Access sessions. Admins use the Vault Discovery and Import functions to bring accounts and endpoints under Vault management. Once under Vault management, the credential-to-endpoint association automatically occurs for the relevant Jump Items. Users are presented with the associated Vault accounts when injecting during session initiation.

Vault – Auto Update Stale Data

Discovery jobs can automatically detect and update stale read-only attributes on accounts, endpoints, or services that have been onboarded into Vault.
Vault Bulk Rotation Users and administrators can select groups of Vault credentials and perform a password rotation on all credentials in the selected group, with just one click. This functionality provides administrators with a simple and efficient method to rotate user-selected groups of credentials or all Vault credentials at once, making it simpler to manage large numbers of credentials with Vault, while eliminating the need for time-consuming manual rotation of individual credentials.

Vault – Account Policies

Vault account policies can be assigned to Vault accounts or Vault account groups, providing administrators with additional granularity regarding Vault account settings. Vault account policies can define whether the account is included in scheduled password rotation, the account’s maximum password age, automatic rotation after check-in, and whether the account is available for simultaneous checkout.

Vault - Account Rotation Entra ID Domain Services

Privileged Remote Access enables organizations to properly manage and inject credentials managed by Entra ID Domain Services. Administrators can now leverage the Vault to rotate account credentials managed by Microsoft Entra ID Domain Services. This new functionality is an addition to the existing ability to discover credentials managed by Entra ID Domain Services.
Vault Configuration APIs List Vault accounts with the Vault Configuration API. Vault administrators can also create generic username/password and username/SSH key accounts using the API. This provides a programmatic way to onboard Vault accounts that can't be automatically discovered through Domain Discovery (Active Directory).

Vault - Configurable Columns

Vault administrators can customize and configure the columns which are shown on the Vault Accounts page.

Vault-Configurable Password Length

Vault administrators can define the password length requirements for Windows local, domain, and Microsoft Entra ID accounts currently managed by Vault. Administrators can define these requirements by navigating to the /login > Vault > Options page.
Vault Domain Filtering

Users can traverse Organizational Units (OUs) within the targeted Active Directory Domain when using the Vault Discovery functionality. Vault Discovery allows administrators to discover credentials in the specified network. Administrators can then import credentials into Vault, enabling users to inject and use the discovered credentials within Privileged Remote Access sessions. Being able to traverse the OU's provides greater flexibility, while saving time and resources. Instead of running a general discovery to the domain, admins can specifically target the OUs of the teams and credentials that they wish to manage with Vault, decreasing the amount of managed credentials in Vault, and making it easier to use and control the most important credentials.

Vault – Jump Item Association

Administrators can limit the credentials available for injection in a Jump session by associating Vault accounts and Vault account groups with Jump Items. Associations can be direct or dynamic with the help of match criteria based on Jump Item properties.

Vault Personal Accounts

All Privileged Remote Access users can create private generic accounts in their own private Vault. This functionality allows users to manage their own Vault accounts privately for use during Privileged Remote Access sessions. The maximum number of personal accounts per user is 50.

Vault - Search Discovery Results

The Vault Discovery Results page in /login provides a search field to make it easier to find the endpoint, account, or service you're looking for. The discovery results also include two additional endpoint columns: Distinguished Name and Operating System name.

Vault Scalability

Vault can now import, rotate, and manage up to 60,000 accounts.

Vault - Windows Service Account Rotation

Vault can rotate Windows service accounts (local and domain). In addition to account rotation, Vault can restart any services associated with the service account. This feature provides Vault administrators with visibility and control over Windows services and service accounts, improving their security posture and quality of service. Service cluster password rotation is not supported in this release.

SSH Certificate Authority for Vault

The SSH Certificate Authority for Vault provides a new solution to secure and manage SSH keys. By providing a unique short-lived private key for each SSH request, the user never receives the actual private key that is trusted by the endpoint.
Jump Client Discovery and Rotation Jump Clients can perform discovery and rotation of local credentials (Windows only). This functionality allows administrators to manage machines individually and set who has access to those machines without the need to set up a local or shared account on the remote system. This feature is to complement the use of Jumpoints in the network for domain-based rotation but also allow for more singular control over smaller groups of machines.

License Reporting and Auditing

Keep track of the number of endpoint licenses used. You can download a zip file containing detailed information on your BeyondTrust license use. This file contains a list of all Jump Items (not counting uninstalled Jump Clients), daily counts for Jump Item operations and license usage, and a summary for the B Series Appliance and its endpoint license usage and churn.

RDP Session Forensics A setting for RDP Jump Items provides administrators with additional logging details for RDP Jump sessions. Users can leverage this functionality by enabling the Session Forensics setting in the RDP Jump Item properties. This feature captures additional session events, such as Focused Window Changed Even and Mouse Click Event. RDP Session Forensics enhances security by providing administrators with RDP Jump session details that previously were only supported in Jump Client sessions.
Reporting Permissions Manage each user's reporting privileges.

Jump Item Reporting

Administrators can now leverage a new report type specific to the administration and configuration of Jump Items. For example, reports can be run for historical Jump Item events, such as creation, deletion, copy, move, etc.
Session Forensics

Session Forensics is a powerful feature that allows you to search across all sessions based on session events. The feature empowers administrators to quickly and effectively identify critical security events, and aids in the prevention of potential security breaches, as well as evidence discovery. Searchable events include chat messages, file transfer, registry editor, session foreground window changed, and shell recordings. Successful matches in stored shell recordings automatically take the user to that point in time in the recording.

GDPR Pseudonymization Support

Allow your organization to meet its GDPR initiatives with pseudonymization and consent support in BeyondTrust. BeyondTrust administrators can respond to Right to Erasure requests by searching for specific criteria supplied by the requester. Once reviewed, the results can be anonymized with an automatically generated term or a custom replacement.

Session Anonymization Improvement

Administrators using the anonymization functionality can now run additional anonymization jobs on the same session reports in case a detail was missed in the initial effort. This helps administrators honor a user's right to erasure requests more quickly.


Feature Name Description

Auto-Update Process for Hardened Linux

During the update process, clients now download the update to their own install location and begin the update from there. By executing from the same location, the proper permissions are already in place and allow the update process for hardened Linux systems to be more seamless for Privileged Remote Access administrators.

Features for System Administrators

Mass Deployment

Install BeyondTrust applications on multiple systems simultaneously.

Feature Name Description
Extractable Access Console Download a mass-deployable access console to distribute to users prior to or in parallel with upgrading the B Series Appliance.
Mass Deployment Installers Create mass deployable installer packages for access consoles and Jump Clients.
Mass Import of Endpoints When creating a large number of Jump shortcuts, you can import them via a spreadsheet in the /login interface or via the API. Importing Jump Items saves time and effort over manually adding each one in the access console.

Feature Name Description
LDAP/Active Directory Use LDAP/Active Directory to manage BeyondTrust users.
RADIUS [Multifactor] Use RADIUS for authentication.
Kerberos [Single Sign-on] Use Kerberos for single sign-on.
Let's Encrypt Support Let's Encrypt is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). It is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA). In /appliance, you can request and automatically renew SSL/TLS certificates used by your B Series Appliance. Let's Encrypt is configured in the SSL/TLS Configuration section in /appliance for on-premises deployments and the Appliance tab for Cloud deployments.

SAML [Single Sign-on]

Use SAML with an Identity Provider to authenticate BeyondTrust users. Admins can set launching the /login or the /console interfaces after using an IdP. SAML can also be used to log directly into /appliance.
