Tenable Selected for DISA’s ACAS Vulnerability Management Solution
Tenable’s Unified Security Monitoring platform is the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) vulnerability management solution deployed DoD-wide as the Assured Compliance Assessment Solution (ACAS). Implementation is now underway for products within ACAS, including Nessus®, SecurityCenter™, and the Passive Vulnerability Scanner™ .
The award means Tenable’s products will be deployed across the entire Department of Defense and select Federal intelligence agencies. That broad deployment provides the DoD a comprehensive view of network configuration, compliance, and risk.
Among the reasons for the Tenable’s selection:
- Scalability - The DoD is able to ensure comprehensive coverage of their network; one of the largest and most complex in the World. Unique Tenable capabilities like distributed scanning and management enable efficient scanning performance, while ensuring everyone in the chain-of-command has visibility into essential data.
- Continuous Monitoring - Emerging, transient, risks like mobile devices, virtual systems, and cloud-based applications and services leave competitive tools in the dark. With Tenable’s unique passive vulnerability detection, the DoD can now continuously monitor networks, learning immediately of vulnerabilities, errors and security exposures, and policy violations. Traditional scanning only provides point in time assessments (weekly, monthly, or even less frequently). Tenable’s Passive Vulnerability Scanner delivers full coverage, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
- Quality of Research - Tenable coverage goes deep and wide, and we’ve adapted our solutions to ensure our research is better integrated with the DoD’s existing systems. Analysts can quickly and easily respond to risks and mitigate problem more effectively.
