Technology integration between Tenable and Thycotic increases efficiency for vulnerability assessments using privileged accounts
Tenable Network Security®, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, today announced a technology alliance partnership with Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 3,500 organizations worldwide, bringing customers a more simplified and secure credentials management solution.
Security administrators are often bogged down with the logistical details of conducting credentialed network vulnerability assessments, from gaining access to privileged accounts to navigating through constantly changing usernames and passwords. This technology integration removes the credential management burden that accompanies vulnerability management practices.
“Tenable is committed to helping organizations of all sizes prioritize threats and weaknesses and reduce exposure and loss across all IT environments,” said Matt Alderman, vice president of strategy, Tenable Network Security. “Password management for credentialed scans can be challenging, and without authenticated scans, customers can miss local vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and other security issues that expose hosts to compromise. This integration helps our customers more easily manage credentials to run authenticated scans, giving them the visibility they need to manage security threats across all of their assets.”
The integration between Tenable Nessus® and Thycotic’s Secret Server makes managing credentialed scans seamless and secure. Accounts are centralized and securely stored in Thycotic Secret Server, and Tenable requests them at run time, ensuring customers have the correct access every time without the hassles of manual credential management.
“Thycotic is committed to protecting our customers’ privileged accounts, while still being a fast to deploy, easy to use, scalable enterprise-class solution,” said Ben Yoder, product manager, Thycotic. “In partnership with Tenable, we can now enable organizations to easily perform credentialed scans to find the most accurate vulnerability information without compromising accountability or control of privileged credentials.”
