Tenable widens vulnerability management partner drive

Tenable Network Security is aiming to give its ongoing European expansion programme a boost with its Tenable.io partner ecosystem, which is designed to allow customers to have an improved view of vulnerability data.

“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, chief technology officer, 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 an application programming interface (API) and software development kit (SDK) to help customers and partners with the export and import of vulnerability, asset, threat and other data. And Tenable is working closely with technology partners to deliver a wide range of pre-built integrations.

“As organisations 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.”

Pedro Abreu, chief strategy officer, ForeScout Technologies, said: “The proliferation of IoT devices connecting to the network significantly expands the attack surface and creates visibility gaps for enterprises. 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.”

 

Starting in the US, Tenable says it now has more than 20,000 enterprise customers worldwide, with regional offices in the UK and Germany. European channel expansion started in earnest with the appointment of Wick Hill - now a division of Nuvias - as a distributor in the UK almost two years ago.
