MSSP and mobile support added by BeyondTrust

Share this article:

BeyondTrust has announced the launch of multi-tenant support for MSSPs and a context-aware management solution for mobile devices.

BeyondTrust said that Retina CS 3.5 includes enhanced protection agent deployment and policy management for multi-tenant support for mobile connectors and Retina Insight.

According to the company, Retina CS is a vulnerability management solution that integrates private cloud security into existing vulnerability management practices, providing organisations complete visibility and management of all vulnerabilities.

The new version, Retina CS 3.5, allows users to visualise the before and after effects of remediation recommendations, as well as the ability to view resources within the organisation, such as mail and database servers, domain controllers, new assets and critical mobile vulnerabilities.

Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product engineering at BeyondTrust, said: “A recent Gartner report advises that organisations looking to invest in cloud infrastructure by leveraging an MSSP should have the provider also support the security for the cloud offering.

“MSSPs can offer a new level of security and comfort to their client base with Retina CS 3.5 by providing security risk discovery, prioritisation, remediation and reporting across their dynamic IT infrastructure, helping to close critical security gaps.”

Retina CS 3.5 also includes a connector to BeyondTrust's PowerBroker mobile solution. According to the company, PowerBroker Mobile is the first product to integrate Retina CS technology since the successful acquisition of eEye Digital Security and integrates context-aware management with vulnerability and patch information.

PowerBroker Mobile offers coverage for Android, Apple iOS, BlackBerry and ActiveSync devices, and is a mobile device provisioning and configuration platform, with policy management for virtual private networks (VPNs), email, passwords, device encryption, remote locking GPS tracking and remote wipe, according to BeyondTrust.

Hibbert said: “With PowerBroker Mobile we're bridging policy management and mobile health by taking vulnerability assessment information as part consideration. Our goal is to provide organisations with a solution that easily integrates management functionality with security information, for any user that brings their own devices to work.

“Managing the health and risks associated with mobile devices shouldn't be so costly and complex and that's why we're introducing PowerBroker Mobile to the market.”
