Few industries share the same cybersecurity challenges as financial institutions. Banking and financial organizations often adopt new technologies to retain existing customers and win new ones, and are entrusted with protecting large amounts of sensitive personal data. And at the same time, banks and other finance organizations must comply with numerous regulations. Consequently, they are attractive targets for cyberattacks, financial fraud and data breaches.
Many financial institutions turn to Tenable for trusted, continuous monitoring to maintain their security and compliance obligations. The combined power of Tenable SecurityCenter CV and Nessus helps financial firms identify computing resources across their networks, including mobile and BYO devices, to paint an accurate picture of vulnerabilities and risks, and guide security analysts through their audit reporting and risk mitigation responsibilities.
