April VEF Participant Wins a Apple iPad mini

Posted April 24, 2014    Qui Cao

Every month we host our Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) webinar. This is a time where our experts share valuable insight regarding new vulnerabilities that are discovered and the actions that need to be taken as a result. It’s a quick way to get up to speed on current potential risks to your organization and a way to explore the impact that high-risk vulnerabilities and exploits have on network environments and infrastructures. BeyondTrust is committed to helping security administrators reduce the workload they face by making this information easily accessible and by clearly presenting all required information to our audience.

If you haven’t attended a VEF before, I encourage you to sign up and join our next one in May. Not only will you receive a complete analysis of recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors but you could potentially win a Apple iPad mini from us!

Our April winner, Wayne Ajimine, was awarded with a new iPad mini for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Wayne:

“Knowledge is power and provides ability fight the good security fight.  BeyondTrust VEF’s help provide that knowledge fuel.”

I’ve always worked in the technology field ever since finishing Tech School.  Spent over 21 years working at a POS company doing pretty much everything. I finally left that job and got my first real exposure to an Enterprise environment 7 years ago, managing firewall systems.  I’ve been working in Information Security only for the last 3 years.  So I’m still new at this but it has been a great and interesting challenge.

Again, congrats to Wayne and thank you to all for being continued supporters of BeyondTrust and security for all. Don’t forget to join us at our next VEF and you too could possibly take home a new iPad mini! Sign up here.

8 Reasons Your Privileged Password Management Solution Will Fail

Posted September 18, 2014    Chris Burd

Leveraging complex, frequently updated passwords is a basic security best practice for protecting privileged accounts in your organization. But if passwords are such a no-brainer, why do two out of three data breaches tie back to poor password management? The fact is that not all privileged password management strategies are created equal, so it’s critical…

Posted September 11, 2014    Chris Burd

There are many things in life that get changed regularly:  your car oil, toothbrush and hopefully, your bed sheets.  It’s rare that you give these things much thought – even when you forget to change them. But what if you’re forgetting something that can cost you millions of dollars if left unchanged for long periods…
