BeyondTrust®, the security industry's only provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, continues to build momentum as the global leader in Privileged Account Management and Vulnerability Management. The company finished fiscal 2013 strong as it experienced its fourth straight year of record profitably as evidenced by EBITDA margins approaching 40 percent. Corporate growth has been influenced by a number of factors over the last six months including; significant product updates, noteworthy customer traction and market partnerships, industry accolades, and key executive appointments, to position BeyondTrust for continued market advancement and growth.
BeyondTrust announced the release of BeyondInsight™, a new IT risk management platform that unifies two foundational security methodologies: Privileged Account Management and Vulnerability Management. BeyondInsight provides a common dashboard interface for multiple BeyondTrust solutions, offering centralized asset discovery, reporting, analytics, and other platform capabilities that enable unprecedented synchronization and collaboration between IT and Security operations.
The company continued to strengthen its standalone offerings as well. For instance, version 6.5 of PowerBroker for Windows, a desktop and server privilege management solution, introduced industry-first Vulnerability-Based Application Management (VBAM)™ capabilities. This patent-pending technology enforces least-privilege access based on an application’s known vulnerabilities, as well as their age, potential risk, and impact on regulatory compliance initiatives – and is currently included in the PowerBroker for Windows Risk Compliance module.
BeyondTrust also expanded its Vulnerability Management solution suite with the introduction of BeyondSaaS, an easy-to-use, cost effective cloud-based vulnerability assessment service. This offering enables customers to address requirements for scanning externally facing web pages and IP addresses per the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and other regulations. The BeyondSaaS release followed the launch of Retina Network Security Scanner Unlimited, a full-featured, unlimited-IP version of the industry’s most mature solution for scanning internal IT assets – priced competitively at $1,200 for a one-year subscription.
Strategic Partnerships/Customer Wins
