BeyondTrust is exiting the vulnerability management market after reviewing its products within the market. BeyondTrust was trying to make sure that there is strategic and business alignment with the program. BeyondTrust’s vulnerability management offering was deemed to not be core to its leadership in the privileged access management (PAM) space and thus will be discontinued. Tenable has, according to BeyondTrust, a proven track record of product innovation in vulnerability management and extensive investment into vulnerability research.
A consolidation of scope is valuable to small businesses and enterprises alike. BeyondTrust understands the comparative advantage of limiting its product field. There is no need to continue offering a product and spending resources on its development if it is not showing a return on investment. Partnering with another vendor to close any gaps in areas that need improvements benefits BeyondTrust and its customers in the end – customers get better products for their needs.
Current BeyondTrust members should consider switching to Tenable to have a current version of a vulnerability management solution before the June 30 or December 31 deadlines. Check out Info-Tech’s Product Scorecard on Tenable to see if Tenable is the right fit for your business as a vulnerability management tool.
If you’re still developing a vulnerability management program, ensure you’ve done the work of identifying and assessing the risk of your current vulnerabilities before you implement a solution.
