U.S. Department of Defense Extends Vulnerability Management Contract with BeyondTrust for Tenth Consecutive Year

BeyondTrust, the security industry's only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, today announced the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has chosen to extend their contract with BeyondTrust to provide critical vulnerability assessment and management solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The relationship between BeyondTrust (through the acquisition of eEye Digital Security) and the DoD dates back to 2004 and provides coverage for every networked asset across all branches of the US Armed Services including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

This contract extension allows BeyondTrust to continue providing the DoD with full visibility of vulnerability, configuration and compliance requirements. It also makes BeyondTrust's award-winning Retina Network and Retina CS technology available to agencies operating under the Assured Compliance Assessment Solution (ACAS) program that need to confidently deploy a scalable vulnerability management solution. Retina CS is the centerpiece of the BeyondTrust's vision of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, aimed at helping commercial and government organizations answer the most persistent questions in IT – what to fix first, what to fix next and why should we fix it. Retina CS does this through unparalleled security intelligence and analytics for the entire IT landscape, including support for emerging technology investments such as cloud and mobile computing as well as virtualization.

"We are honored to continue our strong relationship with the DoD by providing all branches of the Armed Forces with a solution that has met their requirements for the past decade and is designed for highly complex, and heterogeneous government agency infrastructures," said Kevin Hickey, president and CEO at BeyondTrust. "We have a long and distinguished history as a provider of threat management and compliance solutions for both government agencies and enterprise commercial organizations. Our goal is to help our customers make better informed security strategy decisions by way of our technology."

BeyondTrust is an industry leader in vulnerability management and privileged account management with nearly two decades of experience helping sophisticated organizations protect themselves from cyber-attacks. The company is committed to serving government customers by providing innovative security and compliance solutions that support for SCAP, FDCC, and DIACAP initiatives.
