Vulnerability management software provider Tenable is releasing Tenable One, a new exposure management platform designed to unify discovery and visibility into all assets and asses their exposures and vulnerabilities across the entire attack surface for proactive risk management.
The company says Tenable One combines vulnerability management, external attack surface management, identity management and cloud security data to help security teams identity weaknesses before attackers can exploit them. By continuously monitoring IT environments from across traditional assets to cloud and identity systems, the solution delivers context-driven risk analytics so security teams can take a more proactive preventative approach rather than having to scramble to react to security risks.
Following the recent steps of many other security companies, the unified Tenable One platform is designed to help companies cut down on the number of point solutions, as the average large organization uses more than 130.
According to Tenable, the new platform helps organizations translate technical asset, vulnerability and threat data from both on-premises and cloud-based assets into actionable intelligence and business insights for the technical practitioner and business decision maker alike by giving clear and easy-to-decipher metrics that easily communicate cyber risk.
Drawing upon the vulnerability management data set from Nessus, Tenable One aggregates vulnerability data across IT infrastructure, web apps, public cloud and identity systems to help IT and security leaders anticipate the consequences of a cyberattack.
The company says the Tenable One solution will deliver three new capabilities it calls “foundational to exposure management programs,” including a Lumin Exposure View that gives clear insights into an organization’s cyber exposure and helps security teams surface and answer critical questions about security posture, Attack Path Analysis to help security teams focus on mitigating areas of highest risk, and Asset Inventory that gives users a centralized view of all assets.
Hackers don’t take a siloed approach to exploiting attack surfaces, so security teams shouldn’t either, says Glen Pendley, chief technology officer at Tenable.
“A platform approach to exposure management is the real game changer, surpassing the ineffective and expensive point solution approach that the industry has taken for decades,” Pendley says. “Tenable One delivers holistic insight into exposures that can serve as a true north for security teams.”
The platform comes with a single license that gives customers the ability to adjust their asset allocations across vulnerability management, cloud security, AD security and web app scanning tools as their business needs change. It is available today in both standard and enterprise versions.
