Vulnerability management provider Tenable and IT management platform Splunk have launched a new partnership designed to help security teams better correlate events, take action on flaws and meet compliance standards.
The partnership combines Tenable’s vulnerability management insights with Splunk’s log and flow consolidation capabilities to help simplify risk prioritization, accelerate threat response and reduce overall risk.
The companies hope the combined solutions will help security teams get ahead of cyber risk by reducing alert fatigue and giving them more time to address issues proactively instead of responding to incidents.
Tenable will give Splunk customers full visibility into their assets and continually assess those assets for exposures and vulnerabilities, assigning each weakness a vulnerability prioritization rating that signifies relative risk to the business.
This rating system will be paired with the log and flow consolidation capabilities provided by Splunk, giving customers correlation data and advanced analytics for incident response and helping them to prioritize and focus security event investigations on the biggest risks in one dashboard.
The capabilities are now available for joint customers.
“Together with Tenable, we provide our joint customers the ability to detect, investigate and take action on vulnerabilities to their technology assets,” said Hitu Chawla, GVP, partner strategy and solutions at Splunk, in a statement. “We’ve launched this partnership with Tenable because of its effective exposure management capabilities and commitment to helping customers understand and reduce business risk.”
“Uniting Splunk’s log and flow consolidation capabilities and Tenable’s visibility and vulnerability data, organizations can respond quickly to actual risk, rather than perceived risk,” said Ray Komar, vice president of technical alliances at Tenable, in a statement. “With this data at their fingertips, cybersecurity teams can address security incidents faster, freeing up their time to focus on other meaningful initiatives.”
