“In today’s computing environments, enterprises see the need more than ever to ensure that their networks are secure both inside, as well as outside the perimeter,” said Raymond Tan, NetworkWorld Asia. “As such, we are pleased to see that our readers have voted BeyondTrust as their leading choice for overall privilege management and secure access to keep sensitive data out of the hands of cyber criminals.”

The 13th Readers’ Choice Rising Star Awards recognize both established and new solution providers that have made the most impact on Asian end-user organisations in 2018, based on votes from readers.

Hackers recognise the benefit of privileged credentials, and with these keys cyber criminals can access sensitive data, leading to fallout from data breach fines, compliance violations, or loss of reputation. BeyondTrust PowerBroker is a favorite amongst network administrators. Security professionals rely on BeyondTrust to protect privileged accounts.

“An attacker can’t move laterally within a network without a user’s admin privileges,” said Morey Haber, Chief Technology Officer at BeyondTrust. “That’s why it’s important to acknowledge that Privilege Access Management is more than password management—it’s also about ensuring that everyday users don’t have excessive privileges.”

Eddie Stefanescu, Regional Director for APAC at BeyondTrust confirmed the importance of such an achievement in the region. “We’re proud to be recognised as the emerging leader for privilege access management and secure access solutions in Asia Pacific by the NetWorkWorld Asia’s readers. This means that our solutions are helping customers better secure their organisations and hopefully preventing data breaches from causing havoc in our region.”
