BeyondTrust Collaborates with Oracle to Provide Security and Compliance for Virtual and Cloud Computing Infrastructure

BeyondTrust, the global leader in privilege delegation and authorization management for virtualization and cloud computing environments, today announced PowerBroker support of Oracle VM hypervisors and Oracle Enterprise Linux. BeyondTrust and Oracle have collaborated to provide granular control and monitoring of privilege delegation from hypervisor to guest – providing comprehensive security and compliance for systems managing mission critical data and applications.

“An important requirement for enterprises migrating mission critical data and applications to virtual and cloud environments is the ability to do so in a secure and compliant manner,” said Steve Kelley, EVP of Corporate Development for BeyondTrust. “Our collaboration with Oracle to secure privileged access to the entire virtual stack – from hypervisors to guests – provides reassurance to our mutual customers running their mission critical systems, databases and applications.”

The combination of PowerBroker with Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Linux offers customers the ability to configure and enforce granular policies related to delegated systems privileges, to monitor and record privileged system activity down to the keystroke, and to report on privileged entitlements. This solution provides customers with tangible benefits that include better efficiency in managing their virtual hypervisor and guest deployments, enhanced compliance and reporting to meet industry-specific requirements, and better security of mission critical systems, data and applications. The combination of BeyondTrust and Oracle technology helps remove key obstacles for enterprises which can lead to wider adoption of virtual and cloud infrastructure for mission critical data and applications.

“Oracle is committed to delivering the industry’s most comprehensive solution set for virtualization from desktop to data center,” said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. “BeyondTrust’s support of Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Linux provides unique security, compliance and manageability benefits to enterprises that can significantly enhance the experience of our mutual customer’s virtual and cloud-based deployments.”
