Tenable: The World's First Cyber Exposure Platform


We all live in a world which is networked together, from internet banking to government infrastructure, and thus, network protection is no longer an optional extra. Cyber-attack is now an international concern, as high-profile breaches have given many concerns that hacks and other security attacks could endanger the global economy.

Cybersecurity over the years has become very essential for the ongoing threats. New types of connected devices and compute platforms, from Cloud to IoT, have exploded the cyberattack 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.

Today, over 30,000 organizations around the world rely on us to help them understand and reduce cybersecurity risk. The company’s goal is to arm every organization, no matter how large or small, with the visibility and insight to answer four critical questions at all times: Where are they exposed? Where should they prioritize based on risk? Are they reducing their exposure over time? How does it compare to its peers?

A decade ago, the company pioneered the IT Vulnerability Management market as the creator of Nessus®, which is now the world’s most widely deployed IT vulnerability assessment solution. Given the rising severity and frequency of cyberattacks which commonly occur due to a lack of basic cyber hygiene, assessing IT devices for issues has never been more important.

But now Tenable is in a new era. Digital transformation has opened up a whole new world of Cloud, DevOps, Mobility and IoT, where everything from containers to conference systems to power grids are now connected devices and part of the new, modern cyberattack surface. An attack surface which is continually expanding and contracting, like a living organism, making it extremely difficult to secure.

Just as the firm pioneered the IT Vulnerability Management market, it is once again at the forefront of innovation in this new era to help organizations of all sizes rethink how they secure the modern digital enterprise as the pioneer of the emerging Cyber Exposure market., the world’s first Cyber Exposure platform, arms Security with the visibility to see their entire cyberattack surface at all times (from IT to Cloud to IoT to OT) and arms the CISO, C-suite and Board of Directors with the insight to focus on the issues which matter most and make better strategic decisions.
