Award Highlights Tenable's Cybersecurity Innovation, Leadership, and Global Economic Success
Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), announced today that it has been awarded the Baltimore SmartCEO VOLT Award in the "Cyber Warrior" category, recognizing Tenable as the top mid-size cybersecurity technology provider in the greater Baltimore area. Tenable was selected for its unique approach to vulnerability assessment and network monitoring. The company is revolutionizing the security landscape by moving organizations from point-in-time risk awareness to real-time risk assessment — arming enterprises with the intelligence to make the best possible security decisions to safeguard their networks from internal and external threats.
Tenable Network Security is trusted by tens-of-thousands of security professionals worldwide and its SecurityCenter™ and Nessus® solutions are seen as the industry standard by IT security, compliance, and risk managers. The company's technology is the cornerstone for network security in many of the world's largest healthcare, financial, retail, and educational organizations and is currently being deployed across the entire Department of Defense and select federal intelligence agencies.
"Every year, a huge number of new software and network vulnerabilities are discovered and exploited. Organizations have to keep pace with these evolving, aggressive threats," said Ron Gula, CEO and CTO of Tenable Network Security. "All-the-time scanning — not point-in-time scanning — will inevitably become the de-facto standard for managing risk, so that businesses can keep their networks secure."
Tenable's SecurityCenter incorporates the world's most accurate vulnerability sensors — the award-winning Nessus vulnerability scanner and the Passive Vulnerability Scanner — with the industry's largest database of vulnerabilities, threats, and compliance data, delivering real-time network vulnerability intelligence and threat correlation.
"Tenable has firmly demonstrated ground-breaking innovation in the security industry and, with its success-driven implementation, has achieved an extraordinary competitive advantage," said Craig Burris, Founder and President of SmartCEO magazine. "We are privileged to share in their success, which has greatly contributed to the growth of our regional economy."
Tenable Network Security's continued success comes from its unique approach to helping enterprises and government agencies secure their networks from targeted attacks, internal misuse, and compliance violations. The company's Unified Security Monitoring platform is the only solution that provides continuous assessment and monitoring of vulnerability, patch, configuration, log, event, network, and threat intelligence across virtual, cloud, and mobile assets into a single database. Live dashboards, standardized reports, and 3D visualization automate analysis and reporting for executive management, auditors, and security practitioners.
