BeyondTrust provides intelligent identity and access security that works cross-cloud to streamline protection, minimize the attack surface, and eliminate gaps in identity and privilege protection.
"Another benefit of moving to the cloud is that BeyondTrust will handle updates from now on. Not having to perform updates myself (and not having to schedule downtime for those updates) is a huge benefit. Not having to perform updates manually—and not having to schedule downtime for those updates—is a huge benefit."
—David Lokke, Senior Systems Administrator, Premier Bankcard
“Getting BeyondTrust in the cloud was a great idea for disaster recovery and continuity planning. It also put BeyondTrust fully in my department’s control without having the appliance under the purview of our central IT department.”
—Brian Bard, Business & Technology Analyst, UNCC
"Between our larger cloud initiative and the Password Safe integrations with our other BeyondTrust solutions, adopting Password Safe seemed like a smart move—especially given our AWS migration. Password Safe could connect straight to the Privileged Remote Access device and, from there, go to AWS. It would make things easier and more seamless, offering a better experience for our vendor partners."
—David Lokke, Senior Systems Administrator, Premier Bankcard
The first step in gaining control over cloud assets is discovery. BeyondTrust Password Safe performs continuous discovery and inventory of assets across cloud, physical, and virtual environments.
Discovery in the cloud includes all online and offline instances, devices, servers, virtual machines, identities, users, accounts, credentials, and privilege-related risks (default passwords, etc.).
After discovery, Password Safe auto-onboards all assets, allowing you to bring privileged accounts under centralized management. You can even integrate with existing identity providers, cloud identity stores (i.e. Azure Active Directory), and MFA platforms.
BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access addresses privileged access security gaps in the cloud by inserting a secure layer with full session monitoring capabilities. The embedded Chromium-based browser works seamlessly across cloud providers. This cross-cloud Bastion host eliminates the need to set up a virtual desktop environment.
The solution also enables remote access to internal systems and back-end cloud infrastructure, and secures,
manages, and audits access for vendors and internal privileged users.
Privileges are necessary for IT admins and other users to do their jobs. Applications, systems, and assets also need them to operate properly. Administrative privileges, even temporary ones, can provide attackers with the means to land and expand within the cloud environment.
BeyondTrust's endpoint privilege management solutions enforce least privilege and remove admin rights, while still empowering users to do their jobs. Securely delegate tasks and authorization across cloud, hybrid cloud, virtual, and on-premises environments, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and more.
BeyondTrust offers advanced application control and data security capabilities. Customers gain advanced protection against zero-day threats and fileless ransomware attacks that may leverage legitimate applications.
The sprawl of different clouds and proliferation of human and machine identities creates a rich attack surface with many gaps for attackers to exploit. Increasingly, even the identity infrastructure, such as IAM tools, are at risk. BeyondTrust Identity Security Insights provides a centralized view of identities, accounts, and privileged access across your IT estate. Leverage cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM) capabilities to zero in on and mitigate cross-cloud privileged access risks.
Also unlock next-generation identity threat detection and response (IDTR) capabilities to see and mitigate disrupt complex attack chains and ensure least privilege is intact across your complex environment, and identities are protected everywhere.
BeyondTrust Remote Support provides the most powerful, comprehensive, and secure solution in its class. Centralize help desk remote access activity, both on-premises and in cloud environments—without the need for a VPN or other tunneling technology. The solution enables secure session management, with the ability to proxy access to RDP, SSH, and Windows/Unix/Linux hosts.
|Cloud Computing Security Threats||BeyondTrust's Solution|
|Data Breaches||Protect against the leading attack vectors for cloud security incidents, including credential theft, privilege abuse, compromised remote access, and lateral movement.|
|Misconfiguration and Inadequate Change Control||Enforce appropriate access and established workflows for change control. Enable the security team to discover misconfigurations in privileged accounts.|
|Lack of Cloud Security Architecture and Strategy||Provide complete asset discovery to ensure all deployed active resources adhere to cloud security architecture, strategy, and governance.|
|Insufficient Identity, Credential, Access and Key Management||Discover, onboard, and manage all types of human and non-human passwords, keys, secrets, and other credentials across the cloud. Securely inject credentials into sessions without revealing the passwords, and monitor every session involved in privileged activity. Automatically rotate secrets to manage credential threat and provide obfuscation.|
|Account Hijacking||Protect credentials and enforce password security best practices, such as complex passwords and password rotation. Prevent and mitigate attacks such as pass-the-hash, password reuse, and many others. Also, apply robust session monitoring and management with the ability to pause or terminate suspicious sessions.|
|Insider Threat||Enforce least privilege across all users and implement advanced application control to limit lateral movement and privilege escalation. These controls restrict the activities a user can perform or execute to the minimum necessary, protecting against both malicious and inadvertent actions or errors. Command and script filtering and session monitoring/management capabilities provide additional protection against inappropriate activity.|
|Unsecure Interfaces and APIs||BeyondTrust eliminates credentials embedded in code, centrally vaults all secrets using a secure API, and rotates credentials to prevent re-use attacks.|
|Weak Control Plane||Proxy access to the control plane. Eliminates unnecessary privileges and only enables the minimum privilege needed for administration. Manages, monitors, and audits control plane sessions. Enforces credential security best practices for all accounts accessing the control plane.|
|Limited Cloud Usage Visibility||Discover and onboard all cloud assets. Monitor, manage, and audit all privileged sessions in the cloud, including for CI/CD DevOps automation. Provide a holistic view of identities, across clouds.|
|Abuse and Nefarious Use of Cloud Services||Enforce least privilege to limit activities to only what is authorized. Prevent privileged credential theft. Enforce advanced application control to ensure only approved applications are running, and only with the minimum necessary privileges. Gain visibility and security around shadow IT resources. Command and script filtering ensure only the right commands can be executed, and only within the proper context.|
