BeyondTrust has expanded its PowerBroker solution to support Windows 8.
According to the company, PowerBroker for Windows 5.5 allows users to more effectively manage the risk of their Windows systems with its Retina CS threat management console that provides robust, enterprise-ready analytics and reporting capabilities for PowerBroker Windows deployments.
It said that this new release will allow IT organisations to benefit from system and application vulnerability data to make more informed security strategy decisions based on a system's overall risk and susceptibility to attacks.
Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product engineering at BeyondTrust, said: “The high velocity of change in today's enterprise infrastructure often means security teams are making critical business decisions based on threats, regardless of the actual context of those threats.
“This new product release allows organizations to make more effective security decisions, by delivering the context that can only be provided by fusing both vulnerability and privileged identity information.”
