Tenable gives CISOs the right tools to continuously measure security program effectiveness, identify gaps and take decisive action against cyber threats in mobile, cloud or on-premises environments
Tenable Network Security, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, announced today a new solution that helps organizations measure security program effectiveness to gain board-level buy-in and optimize defenses to improve overall security.
"By 2020, 100 percent of large enterprises will be asked to report to their board of directors on cybersecurity and technology risk at least annually, which is up from today's 40 percent," noted Gartner in the March 2016 report How to Build an Effective Cybersecurity and Technology Risk Presentation for Your Board of Directors by Paul Proctor, Jeffrey Wheatman, and Rob McMillan.
With the Tenable Security Assurance solution, organizations are able to use the industry’s only Assurance Report Cards (ARCs) to bridge the gap between technical controls and business priorities. This comprehensive set of dashboards, metrics and reports presents executives with a holistic view of the overall security program so that they can quickly understand the organization’s security and compliance posture.
“If organizations want a clear picture of their security status, they need to help security practitioners and their board of directors to speak the same language,” said Matt Alderman, vice president of strategy, Tenable Network Security. “Our new Security Assurance solution gives organizations the critical context needed to deploy a comprehensive top-down security program that aligns day-to-day security operations with strategic business objectives, helping them to identify gaps and improve their security posture.”
Tenable’s ARCs provide the following capabilities:
Measure Security Assurance: Deliver unparalleled visibility into the security posture for all systems and devices in the entire enterprise environment via advanced analytics and configurable dashboards/reports.
Optimize Defenses: Ensure security systems are configured properly and performing as expected by auditing security system configurations and activity across on-premises, cloud networks and mobile devices.
Ensure Compliance: Measure effectiveness based on security policies and controls that align with compliance mandates, company policies and industry regulations.
