Tenable Network Security®, Inc., the leader in continuous network monitoring, today announced an agreement with AhnLab as an Alliance Solution Partner. The partnership provides customers with an enhanced ability to continuously monitor today’s extended networks while dealing with advanced malware threats and vulnerabilities that exist on all device types.
The solution combines Tenable SecurityCenter Continuous View (CV)™ with AhnLab Malware Defense System (MDS) in order to actively block malware bearing content, malicious traffic and outbound C&C traffic. AhnLab MDS delivers comprehensive threat protection against known and unknown malware, zero-day exploits, and advanced persistent threats, combining cloud-based security intelligence, multi-dimensional behavior based malware analysis and its patented DICA (Dynamic Intelligent Content Analysis) technology.
While many organizations choose to emphasize building defenses against perimeter-based attacks, attacks on an organization’s intranet can be just as damaging at affecting core infrastructure. The increasing complexity of modern software makes the appearance of new vulnerabilities inevitable and organizations need to be prepared to identify and manage any attacks against their network.
“Continuous monitoring is crucial to protecting a network universally in real time,” said Attley Ng, vice president, Asia-Pacific, Tenable Network Security. “Through Tenable’s integration with AhnLab MDS, customers gain additional power to actively identify vulnerable systems across their entire network and mitigate those vulnerabilities before attackers are able to take advantage.”
AnhLab’s customers can use the SecurityCenter CV dashboard to obtain a quick situation overview or drill down into any component to obtain more granular information. Additionally, dashboards can be customised to meet the unique reporting and monitoring needs of individual departments and organisations.
“Today’s advanced and targeted attacks are built to evade existing defenses and detection, so AhnLab offers a new line of sight into threats on networks and endpoints,” said Min Bae, vice president of Global Business Division, AhnLab. “We are excited that Tenable is making us part of their already strong defense against cyber threats for their customers in all sectors and around the world, enabling them to rapidly and confidently defend against these threats.”
Through the partnership, AhnLab joins the Tenable Edge Global Partner Network, which provides specialized training and resources that enable partners to meet Tenable’s channel requirements and best practices.
