Tenable Expands Vulnerability Data

Tenable Network Security has added rich vulnerability data to its platform for better visibility into customer risk posture through the Tenable.io partner ecosystem.

“Solutions that exist in a silo fail to give security teams the visibility and context needed to accurately assess risk in a modern IT environment,” said Renaud Deraison, co-founder and CTO, Tenable. “That’s why Tenable.io was built from the start with openness and collaboration at its core, giving it the power and flexibility to meet the security needs of any business.”

Tenable.io delivers a fully documented application programming interface (API) and software development kit (SDK) to help customers and partners simplify the export and import of vulnerability, asset, threat and other data. In addition, Tenable is working closely with technology partners to deliver a wide range of pre-built integrations.

“As organizations accelerate their cloud migration initiatives, the new tools and applications used to connect to these dynamic IT environments also have the ability to expand the attack surface exponentially,” said Adam Bosnian, executive vice president, global business development, CyberArk. “The Tenable.io platform integrated with CyberArk privileged account security capabilities makes it easier for our customers to holistically manage and secure privileged application credentials, and consistently apply security policies across cloud and on-premises environments to reduce risk.”

Through the Tenable Technology Integration Partner (TIP) program, technology vendors can collaborate with Tenable to build joint integrations that draw on each company’s unique capabilities to help customers gain intelligent security visibility. Tenable has worked with Tenable.io launch partners BMC Software, Bradford Networks, CyberArk and ForeScout to give customers pre-built integrations with their complementary systems, including patch management, automation and orchestration, password vault and network access control solutions.

“Technology is evolving faster than the industry can keep up,” said Pedro Abreu, chief strategy officer, ForeScout Technologies. “The proliferation of IoT devices connecting to the network significantly expands the attack surface and creates visibility gaps for enterprises. ForeScout helps make the invisible visible. Our end customers have reported seeing up to 60 percent more devices on their network than what was previously known. The ability to leverage complementary capabilities from Tenable gives our end-customers the ease and flexibility to identify and mitigate threats faster, thereby improving their overall security posture and extending the value of existing security investments by interconnecting fragmented tools.”
