BeyondTrust Solutions Earn Highest Recommended Rating from SC Magazine, Win Several Categories in Info Security Products Guide’s Global Excellence Awards

PHOENIX, March 21, 2016 – BeyondTrust, the leading cyber security company dedicated to preventing privilege misuse and stopping unauthorized access, today announced that the company’s PowerBroker privileged access management suite received the highest possible rating in SC Magazine’s annual Privileged Access Management Group Test. In addition, multiple solutions offered in the company’s PowerBroker privileged access management and Retina vulnerability management portfolios earned special distinctions from Info Security Products Guide’s 12th Annual Global Excellence Awards.

In SC Magazine’s annual Privileged Access Management Group Test published on March 1, 2016, PowerBroker privileged access management earned a 5-star rating – the highest achievable rating a reviewed solution can receive. In addition to its traditional quality and complete integration into the BeyondInsight platform, SC Magazine cited PowerBroker’s exceptional reporting and analytics capabilities as important strengths of the solution suite’s offerings. PowerBroker was also noted for its flexibility, which provides automation for dynamically managing systems as they are added to the environment. For this, PowerBroker received the Overall Recommended rating vs. all PAM tools reviewed.

SC Magazine Group Tests are conducted by SC Magazine Labs and external experts, and reviewed according to solution type. In Group Tests, solutions are observed around a common theme based on a predetermined set of SC Labs standards (Performance, Ease of use, Features, Documentation, Support, and Value for money). There are roughly 50 individual criteria in the general test process.

In addition to the recognition earned from SC Magazine, solutions within BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker and Retina portfolios were awarded for excellence in the 12th Annual Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards on February 29, 2016. The award series, acknowledged throughout the security industry as a standard of excellence in cybersecurity, recognized BeyondTrust as a leader in several solution categories. PowerBroker for Mac was selected as the gold winner in the “Identity Management” category, as was Retina CS Enterprise Vulnerability Management in the “Vulnerability Assessment, Remediation and Management” category. PowerBroker for Unix & Linux was recognized as a bronze winner in the “Best Products and Solutions for Finance and Banking” category.

“BeyondTrust is committed to developing and providing cybersecurity solutions that not only integrate with one another, but are considered best-of-breed in their own right,” said Brad Hibbert, CTO, BeyondTrust. “We are very proud of the contributions our company has made to the privileged access management space, and that SC Magazine has acknowledged this effort. In addition, the distinctions our individual solutions were given by Info Security Products Guide demonstrate the standards to which we hold ourselves for any solution we produce.”

The company’s latest solution accolades add to a series of recent recognitions. BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for Windows and PowerBroker Management Suite were awarded last year for innovations made in privileged access management and auditing by the Golden Bridge Awards. BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for Unix & Linux was recognized at the Government Security News’ Homeland Security Awards and Retina CS earned Frost & Sullivan’s Enabling Technology Leadership Award.
