BeyondTrust launches solution to combine session monitoring with vulnerability and identity management

Share this article:

BeyondTrust has announced the launch of version 6.0 of its PowerBroker for Windows solution, to offer session and file integrity monitoring capabilities.

The company said the new product includes an ability to leverage privilege and vulnerability data scanned by its Retina CS threat management console, which will allow users to take a system's overall risk into context when deciding what level of privileges a user or system should be given.

Also included is session monitoring capabilities to record, track or disallow user activity on a per application basis.

Brad Hibbert, vice president, product strategy and operations at BeyondTrust, said: “Security teams more often make critical business decisions based on threats after the fact, regardless of addressing the context of those threats.

“This new product release allows organisations to make more effective security decisions, by delivering the context and monitoring tools to effectively mitigate vulnerabilities and control access in Windows systems.”
