Agencies are embracing a zero trust approach to secure data and systems in a perimeter-less world. Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a foundational technology for enabling zero trust. BeyondTrust PAM solutions provide a relentless, blended defense against external and internal threat actors, while helping enable a zero trust security posture.
To meet the access and usability demands of modern users, agencies are moving toward a security posture that’s centered around the zero trust principle of “never trust, always verify.” Agencies must ensure only the RIGHT users, have access to the RIGHT data, at the RIGHT time.
A zero trust security posture reduces the threat surface and minimizes the threat windows during which attackers can inflict damage, helping to protect against everything from simple malware to advanced persistent threats.
BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management solutions help enable NIST's seven core tenets of zero trust identify and secure every privileged user (human, non-human, employee, vendor), asset, and session across your digital estate. Control the who, what, when, why, and where of access.
Reduce your attack surface, minimize threat windows, and improve protection against ransomware, malware, advanced persistent threats, insider threats, and more.
BeyondTrust solutions are deployed in and help secure all cabinet level Federal Civilian agencies and over 100+ Defense Department environments. We are trusted across all 4 branches of the DoD, including the 4th estate, with ATO’s both on the classified and unclassified side.
Explore this guide to discover how BeyondTrust is used by public sector security and IT teams to deliver user flexibility while sustaining a zero trust architecture, discovering, inventorying, and categorizing all assets and accounts. This includes applying just-in-time access models to deliver elevated access in tightly controlled environments.

Federal and state grants are part of the budget picture for nearly every public sector agency in the country. However, many agencies are understaffed for grants development or simply lack experience with grant programs.
The Carahsoft-BeyondTrust Grants Support Program, supported by the Grants Office, provides public sector agencies, educational institutions, and hospitals with grants information, customized funder research, and consultation that will help develop project ideas, get technology-rich projects funded, and even expand initiatives that are already in the works.

We needed to find a tool to enable remote work as effectively, securely and quickly as possible, to be able to facilitate the critical business of government.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) Zero Trust Maturity Model Version 2.0 identifies access management as a core function within the Identity Pillar of their model, bringing the need for Privileged Access Management (PAM) into clear focus. Using these categories as an evaluative tool, an organization can pinpoint the maturity stage of their current Zero Trust Architecture and understand what steps to take to progress.
Dive inside this report to explore access management best practices, analyses of the new zero trust Access Management maturity category, and the substantial impact that Privileged Access Management capabilities can have for organizations on their journey towards Zero Trust.
Today, the United States Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) and US Cyber Command Zero Trust initiative are working toward eliminating malicious actors and their lateral movement abilities by 2027. As the initiative progresses, several key challenges have been identified within several Identity, Credential, & Access Management (ICAM) programs across the institution and its agencies. This has revealed a significant limitation to current Privileged Access Management (PAM) capabilities within many Department of Defense organizations.
Dive inside this whitepaper to discover the ways in which BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management can empower agencies with robust access management, secure remote access, and credential management capabilities to overcome current DoD limitations.
Today, operational technologies and traditional IT networks interact heavily with one another, allowing remote control and access to OT systems. This may increase efficiency, but comes at a heavy cybersecurity cost.
Several experts in the field recently sat down to discuss the growing OT/IT convergence challenge, possible solutions, and recommendations for the future. Read this whitepaper to discover key points from this discussion.
Zero trust assumes there is no implicit trust granted to assets or
user accounts based solely on their physical or network location (i.e.,
local area networks versus the internet) or based on asset ownership
(enterprise or personally owned). Authentication and authorization (both
subject and device) are discrete functions performed before a session
to an enterprise resource is established.
Read this whitepaper to learn how BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions map into guidelines set forth in the NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-2017 on Zero Trust Architecture.
NIST Special Publication 800-53 provides a catalog of security controls for all U.S. federal information systems except those related to national security. The purpose of the NIST 800-53 is to provide guidelines and best practices for protecting the government’s sensitive information and the personal information of citizens from cyberattacks. This special publication is authored by the Joint Task Force.
In this whitepaper, we highlight some of the key NIST control families and explain how BeyondTrust PAM solutions enable you to meet the requirements.
Government agencies, and private sector organizations that support these agencies, can have confidence that BeyondTrust Remote Support and BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access have met the rigorous requirements of FIPS 140-2 Level 1. BeyondTrust is the only remote support and privileged remote access solution available with this certification, enabling organizations to meet these extensive compliance requirements.
