The convergence of operational technologies (OT) and information technologies (IT) can expose major security gaps across cyber-physical systems. BeyondTrust enables organizations to secure industrial networks without disrupting operations, compromising safety or risking non-compliance.

  • Gain complete visibility over OT remote access, including vendor access
  • Onboard and manage all privileged identities, accounts, and credentials (passwords, SSH keys, secrets, etc.) for humans and machines
  • Enforce least privilege over access, endpoints, and sessions
  • Enable network segmentation and microsegmentation to limit lateral movement risk
  • Implement security best practices for vendor access, including credential management, least privilege, and session management
In this session, Diana Kelley explores the differences between IT and OT and the important characteristics that are shared across both. Rather than being at odds with each other, IT and OT teams can be better together.

BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access enables organizations to secure industrial networks while allowing the use of local tools to maintain user workflows, and without disrupting operations, compromising safety or risking non-compliance. Our solution provides secure, least-privilege remote access in a single, flexible solution that simplifies deployments and ensures maximum scalability—while empowering remote operators and vendors to be productive. Connect to any device via the GUI or protocol—from anywhere. The product also supports legacy connection methods through a secure tunnel.

Privileged Remote Access secures OT systems by:

  • Enforcing the philosophy of least privilege for remote access sessions
  • Treating managed devices with the same level of trust as an unmanaged device – which is zero
  • Providing application access independent of network access
  • Recording all activities performed using remote access and disabling functionality such as copy/paste
  • Enabling API security to protect the integrity of data being sent from IoT devices to back-end systems
  • Enforcing 2FA
  • Encrypting all communications between the user and the remote systems using TLS 1.3.

Applying the granularity of Privileged Remote Access to achieve Zero Trust objectives ensures all access is appropriate, managed, and documented, regardless of how the perimeter has been redefined.

Provide secure and scalable remote access for operators, suppliers, and third-party vendors ... without using VPNs or other legacy access tools. Using BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access as a replacement to your corporate VPN enables operators, suppliers or third-party vendors to access OT environments, eliminates remote access blind spots, reduces the attack surface, and drives productivity. Protect your processes and profits while significantly reducing security vulnerabilities and incidents.

BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access allows you to maintain logical and physical network separation for remote access to operational technologies, in compliance with the Purdue model.

BeyondTrust Password Safe is the most comprehensive enterprise password management solution and can ensure all accounts and credentials associated with any privileged access are onboarded and secured. The products comprehensive API unlocks high levels of automation and efficiency.

  • Continuous discovery, onboarding and management of passwords and SSH keys, injecting into sessions, masking them from end users.
  • Extend support to legacy platforms and non-human accounts (app2app, services, databases etc.)
  • Enables ‘break-glass’ access to credentials in case of unexpected solution downtime

BeyondTrust provides powerful endpoint privilege management and application control capabilities that help you quickly lock down OT environments, while maintaining user productivity and operations uptime. Protect endpoints across Windows, macOS, Unix, and Linux systems, as well as non-traditional endpoints, such as network devices, IoT / IIoT, ICS systems, virtual machines, and other devices found across OT environments.

  • Lock down your environment by removing admin rights across workstations and servers and and enforcing a strict allow list for supported terminals
  • Eliminate standing privileges and implement the principle of least privilege and a just-in-time access model across cyber-physical systems
  • Prevent accidental misconfigurations and other errors

Tenable.ot and BeyondTrust
Enables organizations to implement least privilege access across their OT environment, allowing users – including vendors – only the access appropriate to do their jobs – and no more.
BeyondTrust, Tenable.ot, and Ping Identity
Enables organizations to block access to OT devices from all assets (Windows, Linux, Mac), and to enable a just-in-time model to enable legitimate access.
ServiceNow and BeyondTrust
Allows organizations to create a single system of record and action for their OT environment, improving security, uptime and driving outcomes across your manufacturing operations.
BeyondTrust, SailPoint, and Tenable.ot
Combines to provide immediate insight into all accounts, entitlements, policies, and actions across all of your enterprise’s OT environment ensuring access always adheres to security and compliance protocols.

"The majority of the systems within the buildings being accessed are not traditional IT systems. They are building control systems, like smart elevators, surveillance systems and HVAC units where it is not possible to install antivirus software. We recognize that privileged access management is one of the most of important tenets of a modern cybersecurity program and a must-have for a zero trust architecture and robust BYOD security framework.”

With BeyondTrust’s Privileged Remote Access solution, we can make sure that access to any part of our infrastructure is impossible unless we say so... We can enforce a policy of least privilege by giving just the right level of access needed for their role; plus, the ability to schedule when vendors have access to which systems and for how long.

"This is the first time we have ever implemented a security product that made the end user’s job so much easier. Our building managers previously managed dozens of different credentials for staff and vendors. Password Safe centrally manages every credential, so they now have only one password for them, one password for vendors and one password for their staff."
