Tenable Network Security Unveils New Threat Hunting, Unknown and Shadow Assets, and Cybersecurity Framework Solutions at RSA Conference 2016

February 29, 2016

Columbia, MD

CEO Ron Gula declares Defense in Depth irreparably broken, says Tenable is reimagining the security model to deliver holistic security for the modern enterprise

Tenable Network Security, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, introduced three new solutions today that help customers transform their security and address common challenges as part of a strategic vision unveiled during the 2016 RSA Conference in San Francisco.

“The Defense in Depth model this industry has operated under for decades is irreparably broken,” said Ron Gula, CEO, Tenable Network Security. “With our history of innovation and breadth of integrations, no one is better positioned to reimagine and transform the security model with a unified approach that helps customers eliminate blind spots, prioritize threats and reduce exposure and loss. By introducing new solutions for Threat Hunting, Unknown and Shadow Assets and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, Tenable is taking the first steps toward delivering holistic security for the modern enterprise.”

The typical CISO deploys an average of 80 security tools in layers throughout their IT environment — including firewall, intrusion detection, SIEM, anti-virus, threat intelligence, vulnerability management, forensics investigation, and many other technologies. Combined, these diverse technologies create a defensive fortification around the network, but are often siloed and do not communicate with each other. This Defense in Depth model leads to gaps in security coverage, which is why even organizations with significant security investments continue to experience data breaches. At the same time, disruptive cloud and mobile technologies are transforming enterprise IT, reshaping the traditional attack surface and leaving many organizations struggling to keep pace.

“Companies that heavily invested in advanced security solutions are still having a great deal of difficulty
detecting and containing attacks,” said Robert Westervelt, information security analyst, IDC. “The right
approach should combine active scanning, continuous monitoring, log correlation and access control
anomalies to find patterns of activity that could indicate a potential attack. If organizations are provided
with a new security model and the tools to automate some of these processes, they would see added
situational awareness and the ability to address growing regulatory demands, as well as identify and
remediate potential security lapses that require the most attention.”

Tenable’s expanded strategic focus and its debut of three new solutions at the world’s biggest information security conference and trade show comes just four months after the security software company’s record $250 million Series B funding round led by Accel and Insight Venture Partners.

“We think Tenable is in a great position to become an even bigger player in the security industry,” said Richard Wells, managing director, Insight Venture Partners and Tenable board member. “The company’s focus on transforming security with a unified platform and a holistic approach for the modern enterprise reinforces our belief that Tenable is ready to seize the opportunity presented by the evolving security landscape.”
