BeyondInsight Reports: All The Difference In The World

Post by Morey Haber February 7, 2014

Last week, we announced the release of the BeyondInsight IT Risk Management Platform, which provides a central environment for managing several of our PowerBroker Privileged Account Management and Retina Vulnerability Management solutions.

A quick look at the BeyondInsight Analytics and Reporting module uncovers a startling revelation for our competitors and a hidden gem for our customers. I have no bones about stating it outright: BeyondInsight has the best reporting in the industry and is the only solution that ships with a built-in, structured, big-data warehouse – at no additional charge.

BeyondInsight adds significant new reports and report enhancements that deliver context-aware security intelligence based on vulnerability data (asset risk) and privileged account data (user risk).

In this post, I’ll highlight three BeyondInsight vulnerability management reports, and we’ll continue next week with examples of how BeyondInsight’s vulnerability management capabilities enrich analytics and reporting on the privileged account management side of the house.

Combined Executive Dashboard Reports
BeyondInsight has several new Executive Reports that combine elements from throughout the solution into a single report. This creates new executive views that have been commonly requested by clients and business partners alike. In addition, subscriptions to these, and all other reports, can be modified on-the-fly to customize delivery and timing based on an individual’s needs through a new Subscription Editor.

Vulnerability Exposure Report
The Vulnerability Exposure Report lists the percentage of vulnerable assets and asset totals per vulnerability based on a Smart Group. As with all BeyondInsight analytic reports, each of field allows complete drill-down to reveal vulnerability and asset details.

Remediation Report by Asset
The Remediation Report by Asset simplifies the patch management process for operations teams. The report groups operating systems and assets, listing the detected vulnerability and applicable patch – if available. Operation teams can use the patch information to directly remediate the asset with third-party tools . If no public data is available, the report indicates that further actions are needed to correct the anomaly. This eliminates false positives in the remediation cycle and provides concrete guidance when available.

By unifying and correlating user and asset-based risk, BeyondInsight can make all the difference in the world in helping you to better understand – and act on – the unique risks facing your organization. Stayed tuned for future posts on BeyondInsight, and learn more here in the meantime.
