Tenable Achieves FedRAMP Authorization

October 7, 2021

Columbia, MD

Tenable®, Inc. the Cyber Exposure company, today announced it has achieved authorization from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) for its cloud-based vulnerability management platform, Tenable.io®. The U.S. federal government can now deploy Tenable.io and Tenable.io Web Application Scanning across various departments and agencies. Tenable’s sponsoring agency is the International Trade Administration (ITA). 

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program enables agencies to rapidly adapt from old, insecure legacy IT to mission-enabling, secure and cost effective cloud-based technology. 

“Federal agencies are increasingly adopting cloud-smart strategies as they modernize their legacy IT infrastructure. This means the ability to efficiently procure, deploy and maintain secure cloud-based products is mission-critical,” said Bob Huber, Chief Security Officer, Tenable. “We’re excited to offer Tenable.io to our federal customers as they future-proof their technology investments for the digital age.”

Powered by Nessus® technology, Tenable.io provides the industry's most comprehensive vulnerability coverage with the ability to understand cyber risk and predict which vulnerabilities need to be remediated first. It continuously tracks and assesses known and unknown assets and their vulnerabilities in customer environments to provide a risk-based view of the entire attack surface — from IT to cloud to web applications. 

“As a trade agency with offices across more than 100 U.S. cities and in 75 international markets, our top priority is to ensure our staff and the U.S. business clients we serve are able to collaborate in safe and secure ways with the latest, cutting-edge technology and software,” said Joe Ramsey, Chief Information Security Officer, ITA. “Following Tenable’s FedRAMP authorization, we can confidently deploy Tenable.io across our environments, bringing increased visibility, accuracy and analytics to our vulnerability management program.” 

The FedRAMP authorization follows the company’s Common Criteria certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) for Tenable.sc and the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for Tenable’s Information Security Management System (ISMS).
