means security teams are making critical business decisions based on
threats, regardless of the actual context of those threats," said Brad

security decisions, by delivering the context that can only be provided
by fusing both vulnerability and privileged identity information."

Windows, the BeyondTrust threat engine's patent pending virtual
application scans enable immediate alerting and threat prioritization of
vulnerable application usage enabling more proactive remediation of the
most critical and vulnerable assets.
