BeyondTrust offers privileged account management and vulnerability management on one unified platform - BeyondInsight. PowerBroker is the privileged account management technology and Retina is the vulnerability management part. PowerBroker is used to enforce access rights to key systems, applications and data, ensuring that no person is given excessive privileges. Retina enables organisations to assess the likelihood and severity of risks in order to prioritise remediation activities. Customers can use each of its products in standalone mode, or in combination.

Together, they form a unified security software platform that shares common platform management tools to deliver centralised visibility over internal and external risk. The components of the platform share the use of BeyondInsight's Clarity advanced threat analytics capabilities, which collects and aggregates, correlates and analyses information related to potential threats, then reports on high-risk accounts and assets seen so that remediation action can be taken.

With its headquarters in Arizona in the US, BeyondTrust operates worldwide, with offices in Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
