BeyondTrust Expands Privilege Management Capabilities

BeyondTrust has announced key enhancements to BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix and Linux and BeyondTrust Active Directory Bridge to help customers defend against growing Linux threats.

BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix and Linux enables admins to easily set up policies that allow and deny actions and use policy-based controls to elevate privileges as needed. In its latest release, the solution integrates natively with sudo via Sudo Manager feature. With this integration users now have:

  • Central storage and administration of sudoers policy files
  • A secure and efficient way of distributing sudoers policy files over multiple systems
  • Native protection of the integrity of generated logs
  • Provision for remote login to remote servers
  • Centralized searching, analytics and reporting
  •  A web-based management platform
  • This native integration gives customers unprecedented granular control over Linux workstations through centrally managed sudo policies while extending protection to their entire Linux estate.

BeyondTrust extended support for Azure AD

Many organizations have moved to Azure AD to accelerate the adoption of cloud resources and easily integrate SaaS applications into their security infrastructure. To support customers’ cloud migration journeys, BeyondTrust Active Directory Bridge now enables users to authenticate to an Azure AD tenant in addition to Active Directory in a hybrid mode. With this capability organizations can leverage a seamless single sign-on (SSO) experience using their existing Active Directory infrastructure, reducing management complexity and improving the organization’s identity security posture.

BeyondTrust AD Bridge enables customers to leverage their existing investment in Active Directory to consistently manage and secure on-premises and cloud-based Linux resources. Extending familiar and effective Active Directory controls and policies to Linux enables organizations to unify their environments and drive consistency to support governance and compliance.

Support for Kibana Dashboards

BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix and Linux now also includes an Elasticsearch SIEM integration that brings a unified visual search experience. Customers can index log data from Privilege Management for Unix and Linux and Active Directory Bridge into Elastic, along with other log sources, to analyze and visualize data in a more efficient way, through dashboards, charts or built-in apps. This enhanced visual experience helps teams be more precise, efficient, and quickly act on potential remediations. Kibana dashboards can also be leveraged to improve defense capabilities to better detect suspicious and abnormal activities, and to automate analytics to address compliance requirements.

“By integrating BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix and Linux and BeyondTrust Active Directory Bridge with Elasticsearch, we provide a unified search experience for admins to quickly and easily find everything they need,” said Sam Elliot, Senior Vice President of Product Management at BeyondTrust. “Together with the other expanded capabilities, BeyondTrust solutions further enable our customers to achieve their security goals with least privilege enforcement that doesn’t slow down end users.”

BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix and Linux 22.3 is now available.
