ATLANTA, June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BeyondTrust, the worldwide leader in Privileged Access Management, today announced the latest release of BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Windows and Mac, formerly Avecto Defendpoint. Now integrated with BeyondTrust’s BeyondInsight platform, organizations can achieve critical security and compliance requirements of enterprise-wide least privilege more quickly and easily than ever before. BeyondInsight is a unified platform combining privilege and vulnerability management solutions, enabling IT professionals and security experts to work together with increased visibility and enhanced efficiency.
According to Gartner’s Top 10 Security Projects for 2019, Privilege Access Management (PAM) is first on the list of priority security projects for organizations that have already adopted all basic security measures. Analysis from BeyondTrust’s recent Microsoft Vulnerabilities Threat Report supports Gartner’s top security priorities, finding that enforcing least privilege and removing admin rights from users eliminates 81% of Microsoft vulnerabilities.
With the release of BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Windows and Mac, true enterprise-wide PAM can be deployed in weeks, not years, based on BeyondTrust’s unique Quick Start methodology and BeyondInsight platform integration.
Key capabilities with this integration include the following:
In addition to the BeyondInsight integration, BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Mac includes the ability to allow non-admin users to install and uninstall applications in the /Applications/directory. This key requirement further empowers Mac users to work safely and securely under least privilege, while giving IT admins central policy control. The solution now also includes the ability to assign elevation and application control at the computer level based on the host name, IP address, or IP range. Using innovative methods to hook into the operating system, the release of the Mac client drastically improves performance, stability, and security.
“This release marks a key milestone along the path started late last year as we brought four companies together to create the most powerful and easy to deploy PAM solution on the market,” said Morey Haber, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Security Officer at BeyondTrust. “With the power of the leading privilege management solution now coupled with BeyondTrust’s BeyondInsight platform, organizations have the most comprehensive, robust, and granular privilege management solution for Windows and Mac available today.”
