PHOENIX, August 24, 2017 BeyondTrust, the leading cyber security company dedicated to preventing privilege abuse and stopping unauthorized access, today announced that for the fourth straight year, it is listed as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s August 2017 Market Guide for Privileged Access Management (PAM).

“Managing administrative rights and removing privileges is the only reliable way to stop insider privilege abuse and misuse, and modern threats such as ransomware”, said Kevin Hickey, president and CEO at BeyondTrust. “With BeyondTrust, our single, modular platform provides a complete Privilege, Password and Vulnerability Management solution to address insider abuse and misuse that avoids the expense and hassle of cobbling together point solutions.”

Gartner is the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company. It offers expert, objective, and rigorous insight reports on virtually all areas of information technology.

In the guide, Gartner divides the PAM market into two primary solution groups:

  • Privileged Account and Session Management (PASM)
  • Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management (PEDM)

BeyondTrust is represented across both solution groups with a large market share.

“We feel BeyondTrust delivers the most complete and integrated privileged access management platform on the market,” said Brad Hibbert, chief technology officer at BeyondTrust. “By uniting best of breed capabilities in a single pane of glass that many alternative providers offer as disjointed tools they charge separately for, the PowerBroker platform simplifies deployments, reduces costs, improves system security and closes gaps to reduce privileged risks.”
