• BeyondTrust increased new bookings for public sector companies by 183% in 1H 2020
  • The company added more than 150 new public sector customers and expanded its solutions at nearly 800 federal, state, and local organizations

Atlanta, GA – August 5, 2020BeyondTrust, the worldwide technology leader in Privileged Access Management, today announced record H1 bookings within the public sector market, with hundreds of government agencies and universities selecting or expanding BeyondTrust’s solutions. BeyondTrust’s unique Universal Privilege Management approach has become even more relevant with the pandemic and resulting shift to work from home, particularly for government organizations who are trying to support staff, communities, healthcare workers, faculty and students.

The University of Utah is a customer using BeyondTrust’s suite of PAM solutions across its university security and IT teams. According to Chris Stucker, Associate Director for Identity and Access Management at University of Utah, “The university has a complex network of users, admins, and accounts, and we had to consider all the attributes, roles and access needed for undergrad and graduate students, facility, teachers, university hospitals or healthcare systems, and more. We needed a solution and a partner to implement a Just-in-Time (JIT) Privileged Access Management model. We need to enforce true ‘least privilege’ and ensure that users, processes, applications, systems, etc. have ‘just enough’ privileged access when needed, and for the least amount of time necessary.”

“We evaluated the market leaders and selected BeyondTrust as the best partner to help us manage our privileged access,” Stucker continued. “Our partnership with BeyondTrust is enabling remote workers to stay productive in a much safer manner during this pandemic. That lets our people focus on the University’s mission and values, like student success and teaching excellence. Managing our privileged access is critical, and BeyondTrust is a true partner in helping to shape a strategic plan for the University’s cybersecurity future.”

Stucker shared more about how the University of Utah is leveraging JIT PAM to mitigate risk during a recent webinar.

Adding to the challenge for government agencies, the compliance landscape is constantly evolving to keep pace with emerging threats to public sector systems. Cyberattacks are not only increasing in frequency, but also becoming more sophisticated and targeted. Moreover, government agencies and contractors must comply with a wide-range of federal, state, local and industry compliance initiatives and security controls. Non-compliance may not only lead to substantive penalties, but a heightened risk of a security breach that leads to data loss, downtime, and other damages.

BeyondTrust solutions helps public sector agencies meet a number of security initiatives and mandates, including:

FISMA SP 800-53, SP 800-171, and SP 800-137
