Strategic Partnership focuses on streamlining secure audit and remediation capabilities within the Intelligence Community

Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), announced today it has entered into a strategic partnership with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the independent strategic investment firm that identifies innovative technology products to support the missions of the U.S. Intelligence Community. The agreement will enable Tenable to develop robust information security solutions that will assist the U.S. Intelligence Community in continuously staying ahead of emerging cyber threats.

"Tenable is a proven leader and innovator in the information security industry and the company’s technology capabilities are well aligned with needs we see in both the government and commercial markets," said Peter Kuper, Partner on IQT’s Investments team. “Our partnership with Tenable will provide our Intelligence Community customers with a unique opportunity to utilize and build upon Tenable’s innovative vulnerability management technology.”

The company's technology is the cornerstone for information 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. Tenable's USM platform 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.

"The U.S. Intelligence Community houses some of the most sensitive, mission critical information in the world,” said Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security.
