BeyondTrust unveils privilege management solution
PowerBroker for Networks is an agentless solution
Cybersecurity company BeyondTrust has unveiled its privilege management solution for network, IoT, ICS, and SCADA devices.
PowerBroker for Network 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.
The solution enables BeyondTrust customers to experience the benefits of end-to-end least privilege, faster and with less complexity across almost all environments, including critical network devices.
"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," he added.
PowerBroker for Network controls what commands users can run, record sessions, alerts and provides a complete audit trail of user activity on network devices via the command line. Additionally its architecture easily scales to hundreds of thousands of nodes without overburdening the network or administrators with overhead.
Furthermore, organisation will be able to manage large, distributed, and heterogeneous infrastructures while delivering optimal performance and without limiting activity. It also fully integrates with the central PowerBroker console, enabling customers to benefit from a single policy, management and reporting interface.
