Study Group Deploys Tenable Network Security to Protect Academic Community

July 9, 2014

Columbia, MD

Tenable SecurityCenter CV Gives Vulnerability and Threat Visibility for Study Group Data Centers in a Unified Console

Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in continuous network monitoring, today announced that Study Group has deployed the Tenable SecurityCenter Continuous View (CV)™ solution which provides organizations with a platform to continuously monitor for critical vulnerabilities and threats.

The proactive continuous monitoring security solution from Tenable Network Security replaces Study Group’s patch management system, which was unable to continuously monitor its network for new devices and vulnerabilities. At the same time, Study Group decided to take proactive steps to protect its 50,000 international students, teachers and staff and ensure ongoing business continuity following a surge in hacking attempts.

Craig Coleiro, Global IT Operations Director, Study Group, explained, “We reviewed several solutions and concluded that what was needed was a technology which could identify and show the risks, mitigations, incidents and logs while also monitoring the level of security and enabling us to take necessary steps to improve it continuously.”

At the same time, Study Group wanted a solution that would give it the ability to monitor its network 24x7 for new vulnerabilities, devices and incidents. The solution also needed to be able to send alerts and reports identifying business risk.

“Another highly valued attribute of any solution was the product’s capacity to conduct credentialed scanning to identify vulnerabilities in applications installed on workstations and servers instead of just finding vulnerabilities from the outside on ports and services running on a device. This, in turn, would help the organization identify which systems posed a larger risk when compared to others,” says Coleiro.

Finally, Study Group sought a solution that would provide the organization with the ability to monitor and track compliance to ascertain best practice configurations within its network.

“We looked at several solutions, but following a proof-of-concept with Tenable SecurityCenter Continuous View, we believed that this solution was the best suited to achieve our organizational requirements around information security. Specifically, we required a product that could identify vulnerabilities, incidents and logs in one console enabling us to conduct quick analysis and quick response. Tenable’s SecurityCenter CV appeared to be a great choice.”

“Continuous monitoring for vulnerabilities and threats across all network assets is essential to protect today's information systems,” said Attley Ng, vice president of Asia-Pacific, Tenable Network Security. “Having a platform to bring all the data together to achieve this makes it possible for organizations to identify vulnerabilities, reduce risk and ensure compliance continuously.”

Tasked with the project management and successful deployment of Tenable’s SecurityCenter CV was Sydney-based Content Security, a trusted security advisor to Study Group for several years.
