Posted November 4, 2013    Morey Haber

In the next few weeks, you will see the BeyondTrust marketing engine hit warp speed. Pure power and energy will drive this unstoppable force showcasing the next generation of BeyondTrust technology.  BeyondSaaS is an easy-to-use, self service, cloud-based vulnerability assessment scanning solution that addresses perimeter-based assets currently not addressed due to cost or incomplete vulnerability management deployments. BeyondSaaS uses BeyondTrust’s Retina technology in the cloud, so you get the same market-leading coverage, reporting, and accuracy that you use on your internal network for perimeter assessments and management. A brand new interface, robust scalability, and complete multi-tenant data isolation keeps scan times fast, accurate, and secure.

  • The environment can support multiple identity providers, including cloud synchronized Active Directory for single sign on
  • The technology is the first system to use HTML 5 with full support for mobile devices including phones, tablets, and Windows 8.1
  • Supports vulnerability and web application vulnerability assessment
