BeyondTrust PowerBroker solutions recognized for innovative approaches to auditing and privileged access management

PHOENIX, January 4, 2016 – BeyondTrust, a global cyber security company that believes preventing data breaches requires the right visibility to enable control over internal and external risks, announced today that two privileged account management solutions in its PowerBroker portfolio were recognized by the 2015 Golden Bridge Awards for the innovation they bring to information security. PowerBroker for Windows was awarded Gold in the “Privileged Access Management Innovations” category and PowerBroker Management Suite received Gold for “Auditing Innovations.”

BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for Windows was recognized for its ability to reduce the risk of privilege misuse on physical and virtual Microsoft Windows servers and desktops. The solution ensures employee productivity by elevating application privileges as needed, without elevating user privileges. PowerBroker Management Suite was acknowledged for its real-time change auditing capabilities for Active Directory, File Servers, Exchange, SQL, and NetApp, in addition to other features. The solution helps organizations better understand user activity to meet compliance requirements.

“At BeyondTrust, we believe that network visibility is paramount to ensuring a healthy security posture of any organization, regardless of its industry,” said Brad Hibbert, CTO, BeyondTrust. “Once visibility is achieved, organizations can then take control of the risks posed internally by staff or externally from third parties. It is very gratifying for our PowerBroker solutions to be honored for security innovations based on these core company values.”

More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2015 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner and presentation on November 16, 2015 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, industry leaders, and judges.

The successes achieved from the Golden Bridge Awards add to a series of recent security accolades. Currently, BeyondTrust’s Retina CS Enterprise Vulnerability Management solution is nominated as a finalist in the “Best Vulnerability Management Solution” category of the 2016 SC Magazine Awards. Previously, 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. In addition, both PowerBroker for Windows and Retina CS were honored during Info Security’s Global Excellence Awards earlier this year.
