Immunity and DSquare partner with Tenable to offer bundled penetration testing and compliance suite
Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in unified security monitoring and creator of the popular and award-winning Nessus® vulnerability scanner, today announces a new partnership with Immunity, Inc. and DSquare Security, LLC. The partnership allows new customers to procure the Nessus ProfessionalFeed, the award winning CANVAS penetration testing tool and cutting edge exploit content from Immunity at a very competitive price point.
“This offering should be very pleasing to consultants and organizations which perform penetration testing and compliance auditing”, says Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable. “By leveraging Nessus and CANVAS, auditors and system owners can automate the process of penetration testing, patch auditing, configuration auditing and vulnerability scanning.”
Justine Aitel, Immunity’s CEO, added that Immunity CANVAS will complement Tenable Nessus in verifying the existence of vulnerabilities. “This is the first time that the industry’s leading vulnerability scanner and penetration testing tools have been offered in a single bundle. The combination will help our customers measure real-world exposure in a manageable way.”
DSquare also added that “to address the missing link between Nessus and CANVAS, DSquare has developed a specific tool for this bundle to easily find and use the right exploits from CANVAS for the vulnerabilities detected with Nessus. With this bundle, our customers will be able to gain an objective understanding of their IT security.”
“Especially in a down economy, combining vulnerability scanning and penetration testing into an integrated package makes increasing sense, as consultants and in-house IT staff work to get the most possible value from existing software. Immunity’s CANVAS and Tenable’s Nessus are mature and powerful products”, says Nick Selby, VP and Research Director of The 451 Group. “We believe that these two products bundled together offers good value and highly complementary functionality.”
The bundle is available for purchase from Immunity. Further information on ordering the bundle can be found on Immunity’s website (http://www.immunityinc.com/products-bundle.shtml). Customers purchasing the bundle receive a full one year subscription to the Tenable ProfessionalFeed, CANVAS and exploit content from D2.
