BeyondTrust Cyber Defense for Ransomware

The BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) platform is comprised of three integrated solutions: Secure Remote Access, Endpoint Privilege Management, and Privileged Password Management.

Our solutions provide head-on, preventative protection against the most common ransomware and malware attack vectors, including insecure remote access pathways and privileged access, while also helping prevent or mitigate sophisticated edge cases that leverage social engineering, macros, and other vulnerabilities. Defend your organization against both client-side and server-side ransomware threats across on-premise and cloud environments.

Lock Down Remote Access and Eliminate Risky Use of RDP, VNC, and VPNs

Eliminate Backdoors and Unrestricted Access

BeyondTrust Secure Remote Access enables enterprises to lock down remote access and extend privileged access management best practices beyond the perimeter to vendors, remote employees, and service desks.

  • Manages and audits vendor and internal remote privileged access without the need for a dedicated VPN solution.
  • Requires all connections to be brokered through a single access pathway to limit internet-exposed ports and reduce the attack surface.
  • Implements granular, role-based access to specific systems with defined session parameters, eliminating inappropriate privileged access.
  • Automatically injects secure, managed credentials to initiate remote access sessions—without exposing the credential to the end user.
  • Tightly controls, monitors, manages, and audits every remote session—with the ability to pinpoint and suspend or terminate suspicious sessions in real-time.

Ransomware is not magic – it can only run with the privileges of the user or the application that launches it. Therein lies its weakness, and our chance to leverage tools to contain it before it starts.

Stop Lateral Movement, Preventing Ransomware Attacks from Landing and Expanding

Protect Desktops, Servers, IoT, and other Devices

BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management is recognized by analysts as the industry’s leading solution for privilege elevation and delegation and application control. The solution manages and secures privileges across all types of endpoints---Windows, Mac, Unix, Linux, desktops, servers, IoT, ICS, SCADA, and more.

  • Prevent and mitigate ransomware, malware, phishing, and other attacks by removing administrative rights needed by ransomware to execute and enforcing least privilege for both IT and non-IT users
  • Enable just-in-time access models, minimizing standing privileges and the window of time any privileges can be used or misused
  • Apply privilege enforcement rules to web browsers, office applications, and document readers, etc. to block the primary entry point for attackers and the execution of child processes
  • Restrict the spread of ransomware payloads that do gain a foothold by eliminating lateral pathways and reducing the ability to elevate privileges in other applications

Protect Trusted Applications from Fileless Ransomware and Zero Day Threats

Bring Shadow IT Under Control by Securing and Controling Applications

While ransomware is commonly delivered via unauthorized programs, some strains leverage legitimate applications and macros, such as Microsoft Office, Adobe, and PowerShell. BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management stops ransomware and file-less (living of the land) attacks at the source by protecting rogue execution of these applications.

  • Exerts advanced application control that goes beyond allow lists and block lists to ensure only authorized applications and processes can execute or call other applications
  • Blocks malicious code at the source – email attachments, phishing links, compromised websites, and untrusted DLL loads from delivering ransomware payloads
  • Stops infected documents from leveraging script engines and exploitable utilities
  • Defends against fileless malware with Trusted Application Protection

Manage and Secure Privileged Credentials

Eliminate or Mitigate Password Cracking and Reuse, Pass-the-Hash, and other Credential-based Attack Vectors

Compromised credentials play a role in almost every IT security incident—ransomware is no exception. That’s why it’s critical to secure privileged credentials with an enterprise privileged password management solution. BeyondTrust Privileged Password Management:

  • Discovers, onboards, manages, rotates, and audits privileged accounts and credentials
  • Eliminates embedded and default credentials in scripts and applications used for automation and associated with machine identities
  • Consistently enforces strong password policy for humans and machines to protect your organization from password re-use attacks and other password exploits
  • Performs session management by recording interactive sessions for future playback, training, and identification of inappropriate activity
  • Enables just-in-time access to privileged accounts to eliminate standing privileges and always-on privileged accounts
