Redesigned to meet the requirements of today's enterprise environment, the new version is fully integrated into the BeyondInsight IT Risk Management Platform.

The result is a single, contextual lens through which IT and security teams can view and address both user and asset risks.

Asset and Account Discovery: delivers enterprise-wide visibility and control by identifying and profiling systems and accounts to bring under management
Dynamic Rules and Asset Groupings: streamlines management of large environments
Data Warehouse: enables historical correlation, trending and analysis of key metrics for audit and compliance needs
Password Age Report: enables customers to identify stale passwords that could be in possession of former employees, partners or other stakeholders
Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): supports a lightweight, self-service portal for requesting password access, managing requests, and replaying recorded sessions
As shared by analyst firm
Included standard with version 5.2, BeyondInsight extends Password Safe's robust access control and session monitoring capabilities with best-in-class discovery, reporting and analytics capabilities. This combination enables operations teams to:
Discover all known and unknown assets, shared accounts, and service accounts
Bring discovered assets and accounts under Password Safe management
Analyze password ages and proactively report policy violations
Dynamically set permissions for managed accounts
Manage checkout workflow with connectivity to managed systems through native desktop tools, via protocols such as RDP & SSH
