New Amazon Marketplace edition brings flexibility and security to cloud environments
PHOENIX, September 14, 2016 – BeyondTrust, the leading cyber security company dedicated to preventing privilege misuse and stopping unauthorized access, today announced that it has expanded its cloud offerings with two new programs and capabilities. BeyondTrust announced the BeyondTrust Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program and an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) of BeyondInsight available on the Amazon Marketplace.
80% of security breaches involve privileged credentials, and with this announcement, BeyondTrust customers have yet another method in which they can leverage the power of its solutions to mitigate that threat whether deployed on-premise, on virtual devices, in the Cloud or from a Managed Services Provider.
Until now, no privileged access management (PAM) solution has existed for Managed Service Providers to offer to their customers. By offering market-leading, validated solutions to MSPs, BeyondTrust fills this gap in coverage that MSPs and their customers have experienced in the past.
Additionally, the Amazon Marketplace image of BeyondInsight – BeyondTrust’s platform for privilege and vulnerability management – provides a much-needed service for businesses moving into a public cloud, and for those organizations seeking to avoid managing on-premises technology.
First and only fully MSP-enabled PAM solution
With today’s announcement, BeyondTrust becomes the first fully MSP-ready PAM solution. With choices in the past being limited to less mature, less feature-rich on-premise or cloud solutions offered by point tool providers, BeyondTrust is breaking that mold, enabling managed services providers to extend their offerings using a proven, turn-key service catalogue across both vulnerability and privilege management, including services such as:
- Enterprise Password Management Service
- Enterprise Session Management & Recording Service
- Secured SSH Key Management Service
- Secured Application Password Management Service
- Privilege Management for Desktops as a service
- Privilege Management for Servers as a service
- Core Infrastructure Privilege Service
- Enterprise Vulnerability Scan Service
These services enable MSP customers to:
- Have anytime, anywhere, secure privileged access by anyone
- Limit the potential damage of a breach by removing excessive user rights without impacting productivity
- Audit and report on privileged activity across any asset or application
- Find, cycle and monitor the use of employee and third party passwords, including for applications, operating systems, cloud resources, and databases
- Secure third party access for contractors and temporary employees
- Secure network management devices and critical infrastructure
- Secure and inform privileged elevation across all major platforms from Unix and Linux, to Windows and Mac OS
- Find and fix security vulnerabilities across their environment
- Identify unusual user behavior and enable preventative action
“With the number of data breaches involving privileges growing every day, Managed Security Service Providers need to have proven solutions to protect their clients,” said Darren Calman, vice president of business development at Simeio Solutions, a leading provider of Identity and Access Management services and solutions. “The BeyondTrust solution helps us improve our customers’ security by offering them privilege and vulnerability management in a variety of deployment models, including as a service, with flexible subscription pricing models.”
First and only PAM solution available in the AWS Marketplace
BeyondTrust is the first and only PAM solution available on the Amazon Marketplace. By enabling BeyondTrust’s PAM and vulnerability management solutions in the cloud, the Amazon image instance can meet objectives for rapid deployment, secure access, and a cost effective solution to eliminate the threats of excessive privileged access. The solution is the first of its kind that enables a BeyondTrust customer to “Bring Your Own License” and quickly and seamlessly stand up an image of PowerBroker Password Safe, PowerBroker for Unix and Linux, PowerBroker for Windows, PowerBroker for Mac and Retina CS in Amazon’s cloud marketplace. Not only can customers utilize this offering, but service providers can deliver these services to their customers, reducing overhead and potentially reducing the total cost of ownership of implementation.
“BeyondTrust is dedicated to providing our customers with the most full-bodied cloud solutions available by leveraging capabilities that are full-featured, mature, and market-leading,” said Brad Hibbert, CTO at BeyondTrust. “By now offering these new capabilities for managed services providers, as well as providing the first and only PAM solution in the Amazon Marketplace, we have not only reinforced our commitment to the cloud, but to our customers as well.”
The BeyondTrust Managed Services Provider Program and the Amazon Marketplace version are available now.
