Columbia, MD

Latest Relationship Grants FAA Access to the Leading Enterprise Security Platform, SecurityCenter Continuous View

Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in real-time vulnerability management, today announced that it is an approved SAVES vendor, contracted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) through its channel partners Iron Bow Technologies and Unicom. Under the SAVES (Strategic Sourcing for the Acquisition of Various Equipment and Supplies) program, the FAA will now have access to Tenable’s SecurityCenter Continuous View platform, which provides customers with real-time security and compliance intelligence.

“Expanding our relationship with FAA is a significant feat for us,” said Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security. “Given the growing number of cyberattacks and hack attempts against significant companies across the country, it is imperative for organizations like the FAA to take the necessary steps to make sure their network is not compromised. We look forward to partnering with the FAA on this.”

For organizations with large and complex networks, SecurityCenter Continuous View offers active scanning, passive network monitoring, security information and event management (SIEM) in a unified platform – eliminating the need for custom integration, manual data normalization, and point product management. Its features and benefits include (but are not limited to):

  • Automatically identifying sophisticated attacks through real-time normalization and correlation of vulnerability, threat intelligence, malicious process detection, and anomalous communication relationships
  • Unlimited active scanning with Nessus® and mobile device detection and scanning using a centralized database for faster and more efficient scans
  • Delivery of advanced analytics including extensive dashboards, built-in and customizable reports that aggregate scan data to help identify and respond to security and compliance issues
