$50 Million Series A Investment in Tenable from Accel Partners

by Ron Gula on September 5, 2012

I am extremely pleased to announce that Tenable has received its first institutional round of funding: a $50 million investment from Accel Partners . The investment will help us continue to develop and improve our solutions and improve our customers’s experience. Tenable celebrates its 10 th anniversary this month. During that time, we’ve made Nessus the number one trusted vulnerability scanner in the world with more than 1 million users across 150 countries. We did this though a combination working closely with our community and continually adding improvements to make our users’s lives easier and through our own innovation to push Nessus to do even more than vulnerability assessments. Today, Nessus not only detects vulnerabilities, it finds malware , botnets , credit cards, configurations that will get you hacked or fined and most recently, issues with your iPhone and Android devices. Tenable’s SecurityCenter, our enterprise platform for Nessus, has also become the preferred enterprise security solution for nearly 1,000 enterprise customers including the entire U.S. Department of Defense . We have changed the vulnerability management paradigm through our unique combination of scalable network vulnerability monitoring, vulnerability scanning and log management. It has helped our customers break down traditional security silos, have a unified view of their security posture and respond quicker to incidents and audits than was previously thought possible.
