Tenable – Empowering Organizations to Understand and Reduce Their Cybersecurity Risk

Tenable – Empowering Organizations to Understand and Reduce Their Cybersecurity Risk

Cybersecurity is one of the existential threats of our time. New types of connected devices and compute platforms, from Cloud to IoT, have exploded the cyber-attack surface. And more tools collecting more data doesn’t equate to actionable insight for the CISO, C-suite and Board of Directors. The old way of simply scanning on-premises IT devices for vulnerabilities is no longer enough. It’s time for a new approach.

Tenable is the Cyber Exposure company. Over 30,000 organizations around the globe rely on Tenable to understand and reduce cyber risk. As the creator of Nessus®, Tenable extended its expertise in vulnerabilities to deliver the world’s first platform to see and secure any digital asset on any computing platform. Tenable customers include more than 50 percent of the Fortune 500, more than 30 percent of the Global 2000 and large government agencies.

Next-Generation Cybersecurity Management Services Offered

Tenable.io: Get a risk-based view of your entire attack surface—from IT to cloud to containers—so you can quickly identify, investigate and prioritize vulnerabilities. Managed in the cloud and powered by Nessus technology, Tenable.io provides the industry's most comprehensive vulnerability coverage with the ability to predict which security issues to remediate first. It’s your complete end-to-end vulnerability management solution. Active scanning, agents, passive monitoring, cloud connectors and CMDB integrations provide unified visibility and a continuous view of all of your assets—both known and previously unknown. With coverage for more than 65K vulnerabilities, Tenable has the industry’s most extensive CVE and security configuration support to help you understand all of your exposures.

Nessus: It is trusted by more than 30,000 organizations worldwide as one of the most widely deployed security technologies on the planet and the gold standard for vulnerability assessment. Powered by Tenable Research, Nessus delivers the industry’s broadest vulnerability coverage with new detections continuously added to the platform. Predictive Prioritization prioritizes the most critical security issues so that you don’t have to. Nessus was built from the ground-up with a deep understanding of how security practitioners work. Every feature in Nessus is designed to make vulnerability assessment simple, easy and intuitive. The result: less time and effort to assess, prioritize, and remediate issues. The Tenable Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR) helps you zero in on the vulnerabilities that matter most by combining vulnerability information, threat intelligence and data science. VPR can be found in Nessus Professional Top 10 reports and within a VPR Top Threats tab for a particular scan.

Tenable.sc: Get a risk-based view of your IT, security and compliance posture so you can quickly identify, investigate and prioritize vulnerabilities. Managed on-premises and powered by Nessus technology, the Tenable.sc suite of products provides the industry's most comprehensive vulnerability coverage with real-time continuous assessment of your network. It’s your complete end-to-end vulnerability management solution. Tenable’s Predictive Prioritization technology combines vulnerability data, threat intelligence and data science to give you an easy-to-understand risk score so you know which vulnerabilities to fix first.

Tenable.ad: Behind every breach headline is an insecure Active Directory (AD) deployment. AD has become the favored target for attackers to elevate privileges and facilitate lateral movement through leveraging known flaws and misconfigurations. Unfortunately, most organizations struggle with Active Directory security due to misconfigurations piling up as domains increase in complexity, leaving security teams unable to find and fix flaws before they become business-impacting issues. Tenable.ad enables you to see everything, predict what matters, and act to address risk in Active Directory to disrupt attack paths before attackers exploit them.

Tenable Lumin: For the first time ever, you can visualize and explore your Cyber Exposure, track risk reduction over time, measure the effectiveness of your security operations and benchmark against your peers. Use Tenable Lumin, an advanced visualization, decision support, analytics and measurement solution, to understand and reduce your Cyber Exposure. Lumin transforms vulnerability data into meaningful insights to help you manage cyber risk across your entire organization.
