Context-aware security intelligence provider BeyondTrust has released PowerBroker 6.0 for Windows. PowerBroker is a clever identity management solution that helps IT admins to decide what level of privileges should be assigned to a certain user or system.PowerBroker leverages vulnerability data scanned by the company’s Retina CS Threat Management Console to ensure maximum efficiency.
The solution also allows customers to record user activities, create policies via Retina CS, and monitor file integrity. PowerBroker 6.0 has a redesigned Windows 8 "metro" user interface.
"Security teams more often make critical business decisions based on threats after the fact, regardless of addressing the context of those threats," said Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product strategy and operations at BeyondTrust.
"This new product release allows organizations to make more effective security decisions, by delivering the context and monitoring tools to effectively mitigate vulnerabilities and control access in Windows systems."
