McAfee and BeyondTrust – Unified Endpoint Least Privilege and Security
About this White Paper
The volume and frequency of privilege-based attacks – ranging from opportunistic to sophisticated to targeted — are testing the limits of existing security controls and solution implementations. Why? The traditional “good guy versus bad guy” paradigm finds that foes are constantly outflanking defenses. But it’s the deeper why that really matters here, though: resource-constrained security teams, struggling with personnel, budget and technology are barely holding their ground when new attack vectors and vulnerabilities are discovered.
Security vendors and practitioners alike have traditionally responded to the ever-changing privilege threat landscape with updated tools, better identification methods, and best practices guidance. Unfortunately, these are reactive measures that continue to leave gaps in control.
While no one security vendor can provide every security tool an organization needs, integrated solutions working as a seamless partnership to the end user provides the next best thing to a “silver bullet” to solve these problems. Best of breed products, created by vendors specializing in specific security disciplines, can share information and provide key linkage of events to identify next generation threats. With this philosophy in mind, having a platform and common framework for integration becomes critical for success.
