BeyondTrust has announced its market-leading BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Windows and Mac solution is now available as SaaS (software-as-a-service), enabling organizations to stop malicious attacks by enforcing least privilege on endpoints while benefiting from the low total cost of ownership, rapid time to value, and reduced administrative burden of a SaaS solution. As organizations are challenged to secure endpoints that are now in employees’ homes, BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Windows and Mac allows them to secure user devices and limit privileges without hindering productivity or driving up calls to the service desk.
BeyondTrust Privilege Management provides the exact level of privileged access end-users need to perform day-to-day activities, such as installing and updating approved applications and printers, webcams, etc., without giving them full administrative rights. This just-in-time approach to privileged access allows employees working from home to access the applications and peripherals they need without having to contact the service desk. It also enables traditionally Windows-oriented service desks to manage an increasing number of Mac users created by bring your own device (BYOD) policies.
Privilege Management for Windows and Mac via SaaS enables organizations to:
Implement endpoint security to protect users that are vulnerable to malicious attacks like phishing, malware, and ransomware
Achieve rapid time-to-value with SaaS deployments and Quick Start policies for immediate risk reduction and fast deployments
Enforce least privilege policies across Windows desktops/servers and macOS
Empower employees with the access to applications they need for maximum productivity
Minimize costs from IT staff and infrastructure while reducing the burden on IT and Service Desk teams
Meet the requirements of security and compliance, displayed through dynamic dashboards
BeyondTrust Privilege Management is a tried and tested solution that provides unmatched time-to-value across the industry. The SaaS version can be deployed very quickly, and the unique QuickStart capability enables overnight policy implementation across all users, or groups of users, to immediately reduce the risk of unmanaged endpoints.
Privilege Management for Windows and Mac enables organizations to eliminate admin rights quickly and efficiently, without disrupting user productivity, unlike traditional privilege management products that can take months to properly configure.
“With full management capabilities in the cloud, BeyondTrust provides nearly 3,000 customers the best the cloud has to offer – high availability, security, access, and scalability,” said Dan DeRosa, Chief Product Officer at BeyondTrust. “As organizations adjust to manage the increase in remote endpoints on the network, BeyondTrust’s SaaS solutions feature rapid deployment while also allowing the flexibility only a subscription model can provide.”
Privilege Management for Windows and Mac is an integral part of the BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management portfolio. By uniting the broadest set of privileged security capabilities, BeyondTrust’s Universal Privilege Management approach simplifies deployments, reduces costs, improves usability, and reduces privilege risks.
