BeyondTrust Announces PowerBroker ESX Datacenter Virtualization Packaging

May 24th, 2011

Special Offer for Solution to Ensure Privileged Access Compliance in ESX Virtual Infrastructures

AGOURA HILLS, Calif.May 17, 2010 – BeyondTrust, the leading provider of Privileged Access Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced a special offering of privileged identity management capabilities as part of BeyondTrust’s partnership with VMWare also announced today. With the PowerBroker ESX Datacenter Virtualization package, which includes centrally managed PowerBroker licenses for 10 ESX Hypervisors and 100 Guest VMs, customers can ensure secure privileged access and compliance for virtual infrastructures in their VMware powered datacenters. The packaging is aggressively priced to enable the secure and compliant migration of enterprise workloads to VMware powered datacenters.

“Most organizations we talk to have an impetus to harness virtualization cost savings, but are unclear about how they can proceed in a secure and compliant manner,” said Saurabh Bhatnagar, VP of Product Management. “Undermanaged privileges on the ESX hypervisor can be exploited to gain undetected access to highly sensitive data on guest VMs, or even bring down the entire virtual infrastructure. The PowerBroker ESX Datacenter Virtualization package protects against such risk exposure, strengthening the security and compliance posture of virtualized datacenters running VMware.”

The PowerBroker ESX Datacenter Virtualization package offers the following:

  • Granular policy driven control for “who” can access “which” infrastructure elements, from “where”, and to do “what”, for both the ESX hypervisor and guest VMs. These controls are essential for security and for support of compliance mandates and security standards like SOX, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, ISO 27001 and COBIT.
  • Two-click entitlement reports, as well as a programmatic role-constrain mechanism for segregation of duties, in support of compliance.
  • Detailed logging and reporting capabilities, down to indelible secure keystroke logs, for the entire virtual infrastructures, ensuring quick and flexible audit support and forensic analysis.
  • A special aggressively discounted packaged price for 10 ESX servers and 100 Guest VMs.

PowerBroker Virtualization for ESX has been successfully deployed by five of Fortune’s top ten commercial banks and two of Forbes America’s largest private companies, amongst others.
