WALLIX partners with Beyond Security to automate authenticated vulnerability scans
Paris, 13th May 2020 – WALLIX (Euronext – ALLIX), cybersecurity software solutions publisher and expert in privileged access management (PAM), announced today that it has partnered with Beyond Security, a global leader in automated penetration testing and vulnerability scanning. The partnership between WALLIX’s flagship product, the WALLIX Bastion, and beSECURE simplifies credentialed scanning across complex environments by offering organizations the trusted scanning capabilities they’ve come to rely on at the same time as a secure place to store credentials outside of the beSECURE platform.
Empowering beSECURE to securely connect to a device for authenticated vulnerability scans
“This integration relies on the use of the WALLIX Password Manager to automate authenticated vulnerability scans. It enables beSECURE to connect to the device in confidence for authenticated vulnerability scans,” explains Emmanuel Pierre, Product Manager at WALLIX. “This positions us in a pivotal role for global customers’ asset security”.
Performing authenticated scans can be an arduous process for large enterprises due to zero trust security methods which, while helping companies meet compliance standards and prevent security threats, often complicate access for security teams who frequently work as outside contractors. The difficulty of gaining the required credentials or having to reset constantly-changing usernames and passwords may cause large organizations to choose other scanning methods that may not be as secure and may not provide a complete list of vulnerabilities detected.
The WALLIX Bastion and beSECURE deliver credential-based vulnerability testing in a safe, secure and seamless manner
“We’re proud to partner with WALLIX, a specialist in privileged account management,” said Aviram Jenik, Beyond Security co-founder and CEO. “Together, the WALLIX Bastion and beSECURE deliver credential-based vulnerability testing in a safe, secure and seamless manner.”
Chad Carter, VP Sales US at WALLIX adds, “Furthermore, these two agile solutions facilitate a rapid integration with no additional maintenance cost for the client.”
Clients using both Beyond Security’s beSECURE and the WALLIX Bastion will be able to store secure passwords and SSH keys in an encrypted vault which can be accessed any time they need to retrieve credentials for authenticated scanning. The combined solutions will protect the security and control over privileged accounts while allowing rapid deployment of the in-depth credentialed scanning that can detect policy violations, missing patches, and other security issues not detectable via a regular scan.
A software company providing cybersecurity solutions, WALLIX Group is the European leader in privileged account governance strong presence in the United States. WALLIX’s U.S. headquarters are in Boston.
In response to recent regulatory changes and the cyber security threats affecting all companies today, WALLIX’s solutions help users defend against cyberattacks, theft and data leaks linked to stolen credentials, and abused privileges. It is the first market solution to have been awarded first-level security certification (CSPN) by France’s National Cybersecurity Agency (ANSSI) and thus meet all of the criteria for regulatory compliance. Listed on the Euronext under ALLIX and distributed by a network of more than 170 resellers and trained and accredited integrators, WALLIX accompanies more than 1000 companies in securing their digital future.
