IPv6 Requires Fundamental Change to Vulnerability Management Programs

This paper addresses the need for today’s organizations to actively manage and secure their computing environments relative to IPv6 systems and traffic, regardless of whether they are actively implementing the protocol. In addition, we will demonstrate how Tenable’s SecurityCenter platform delivers unmatched situational awareness and security for IPv6-enabled resources and the network traffic they generate.

Predicting Attack Paths

This paper outlines how to leverage Tenable's Nessus and Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS) to identify, in real-time, Internet-facing services that are exploitable, Internet browsing systems that are exploitable and trusted servers that are being managed by exploitable clients.

Strategic Anti-malware Monitoring with Nessus, PVS, & LCE

Tenable’s Unified Security Monitoring (USM) platform provides great flexibility in security and compliance monitoring of networks across multiple areas including system inventory, vulnerabilities, and corporate policy compliance. By monitoring system processes and network traffic, and correlating it with audit results of anti-virus configurations and malware scans, Tenable’s USM platform can identify a wide range of threats to an organization beyond vulnerability scanning.

Tenable Event Correlation

Correlation is essential in extracting context and intelligence from the reams of network event data available to security professionals. Tenable Network Security’s Log Correlation Engine (LCE) product offers multiple event correlation techniques to detect abuse, anomalies, compromise, and compliance violations.

Boosting Your Network Defenses with Tenable’s Integral Attack Path Analytics

Today’s networks are complex, interconnected systems. Organizations invest significant time and energy in developing, deploying, and maintaining defenses for sensitive systems and servers. But the complexity of the environment makes it easy to overlook indirect routes attackers can exploit to take control of processes and data. This paper outlines the challenges, provides processes security practitioners can follow to identify – and close off – these otherwise hidden attack paths, and describes the tools and capabilities needed to perform the job.

Vulnerability Management Evolution: From Tactical Scanner to Strategic Platform

Vulnerability scanners have traditionally been viewed as tactical solutions to the problems posed by the need to satisfy auditors and provide proof of compliance with a mix of regulatory and industry standards. But insightful security leaders have begun to realize that vulnerability assessment products — with the appropriate features and enhanced capabilities — can deliver much more than "check box" compliance. Today, these solutions can help managers make real inroads in optimizing the efficiency of their teams and in managing risk.
