“We will be growing Tenable’s APAC operations aggressively, and hiring the best people to earn the respect of customers and Integration partners in Asia,” said Jackson. “Cyber attacks were up in 2014 and the world is growing more concerned about network security at all levels of business, so I’m excited for the opportunity to connect customers with the best continuous network monitoring and vulnerability management technology in the world to help them detect, assess and protect the security of their networks.”
