BeyondTrust Launches New Website

Posted July 6, 2011    Peter McCalister

I have tried to purposely keep this blog away from anything even remotely BeyondTrust sales-oriented and focus instead on the information, education and proof-points that examine the whys and hows of implementing least privilege across your extended enterprise. Today will be an exception.

BeyondTrust has been an industry leader for over 25 years in the privilege identity management space, and if you’ve followed some of our recent acquisitions, you may have guessed that we are expanding our reach. We believe that the next frontier is to protect from insider threats and secure the perimeter within.

Specifically, ensuring that physical and virtual desktops and servers, databases and infrastructure as well as private, public and hybrid cloud environments have authorization managed at a granular level in order to satisfy compliance and governance requirements while mitigating insider threats. So drop by our new site, browse around to uncover all kinds of information nuggets, tips and best practices for success and well as tools and software to ease your way into securing your perimeter within.
