Beyondtrust releases first of its kind solution

Phoenix, Az

Beyondtrust has released a first-of-its kind privilege management solution for network, IoT, ICS, and SCADA devices. Powerbroker for Networks rounds out Beyondtrust’s privilege management support, which includes privilege management for Windows, Mac, Unix and Linux endpoints, servers, applications, and now any device managed via SSH or Telnet.

With Powerbroker for Networks, Beyondtrust customers can realise the benefits of end-to-end least privilege faster and with less complexity across nearly all environments, including critical network devices.

Powerbroker for Networks is an agentless solution that controls what commands users can run, records sessions, alerts, and provides a complete audit trail of user activity on network devices via the command line. Delivered with a modular design that is highly scalable, Powerbroker for Networks’ architecture easily scales to hundreds of thousands of nodes without overburdening the network or administrators with overhead. With Powerbroker for Networks, organisations can manage large, distributed, and heterogeneous infrastructures while delivering optimal performance and without limiting activity. Powerbroker for Networks fully integrates with the central Powerbroker console, enabling customers to benefit from a single policy, management and reporting interface.

“Network devices – such as routers, switches, firewalls, IoT, ICS, and other SCADA devices – are critical for organisations to function, yet present open doors for external attackers and malicious insiders if not properly monitored,” said Brad Hibbert, COO, Beyondtrust. “To improve security on these devices, organisations must have control and visibility over privileged user activity. Since most network devices do not allow for the installation of agents, or are manufacturer-specific, Powerbroker for Networks fills an important gap.”
