What is The Forrester Wave?

  • Endpoint Agent Integration
  • Total Cost of Ownership
  • Product Roadmap

BeyondTrust believe that these results highlight three of its core differentiators – as follows.


The report states, “BeyondTrust supports a robust set of features at an incredible price point.”  An,d “If you’re looking for a cost-effective solution for scanning your infrastructure with risk and compliance reporting, this is an excellent choice.”

BeyondTrust has long delivered the great value and tremendous ROI, and they believe this report validates that.


The report mentions, “The asset management and reporting capabilities of the BeyondInsight product differentiate by giving customers a holistic view of the security posture of all the groups within the organisation; the service-level agreement (SLA) reporting even has an email subscription capability so stakeholders can have regular updates without logging into the dashboard.”

Unless delivered in a consumable way that quickly enables security leaders and practitioners to make decisions, data is useless.  But information delivered via robust reporting is where value can be found.

Customer Focus

The report states, “Client feedback is positive with regard to BeyondTrust’s responsiveness to both feature requests and support issues, and professional services are available as needed.”  BeyondTrust actively engage with clients throughout the customer lifecycle.

Vulnerability management continues to be a fundamental security layer that spans on-premise, cloud and IoT systems.  Properly enabled vulnerability management mitigates risks to these assets by reducing attack surfaces, creating barriers to lateral movement, and via proactive threat detection.  These capabilities are directly built-in to the Retina enterprise vulnerability management platform.
