BeyondTrust Integrates with McAfee for Secure Vulnerability Scanning
CARLSBAD, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
BeyondTrust, the leading provider of privilege delegation and
authorization management, today announced a technology integration with
McAfee (News - Alert) Vulnerability Manager and BeyondTrust's PowerBroker for Servers.
The integration will enable customers to manage user access and
privileges while expanding the coverage of security scans for a more
complete, accurate view of IT security and compliance across physical,
virtual and cloud environments.
McAfee Vulnerability Manager provides vulnerability assessment and
lifecycle management of an organization's networked assets. PowerBroker
enables system administrators to delegate privileges and authorization
without disclosing root passwords - preventing misuse of privileges on
desktops and servers in heterogeneous IT environments. The new
integration enables customers to use PowerBroker root delegation
functionality in conjunction with McAfee Vulnerability Manager's
authenticated vulnerability and compliance scans on Unix and Linux
systems. This allows system administrators to gain deep visibility into
device vulnerabilities while maintaining UNIX security best practices so
they can delegate privileges and authorization while recording all
interactions, including keystroke information, for auditing purposes.
"With PowerBroker and McAfee Vulnerability Manager working in unison, a
company can get a single, risk-prioritized view of vulnerabilities and
compliance deficiencies across all Unix/Linux server environments," said
John Mutch, CEO of BeyondTrust. "McAfee and BeyondTrust combined
enhanced security practices to proactively deploy compliance best
practices, while strengthening the protection of mission critical data."
"Our mutual customers that have standardized their root delegation on
PowerBroker can now leverage this integration with McAfee Vulnerability
Manager to further improve the management of access to systems while
scanning for vulnerabilities and compliance checks on a global scale,"
said Stuart McClure, general manager of Risk and Compliance at McAfee.
"Additionally, many organizations have deployed McAfee and PowerBroker
to secure their private cloud infrastructures in order to carefully
analyze business and security requirements, and evaluate the depth and
reliability of security features and cloud service levels."
