Tenable Unveils New Innovations for Cyber Exposure Analytics

May 24, 2019

ATLANTA, GA at Edge 2019 / MUMBAI, India – May 24, 2019 – Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today unveiled new innovations to its Cyber Exposure analytics capabilities in Tenable Lumin™. These innovations leverage machine learning to automatically correlate vulnerability and threat data together with asset criticality in a single platform. For the first time, organizations can accurately score, trend and benchmark their cyber exposure based on the likelihood the exposure will be exploited and the business criticality of the impacted assets. This will enable organizations to evolve from a technology – to a risk-based approach to prioritize remediation, communicate to the business and make data-driven decisions to reduce cyber risk.

Tenable has unveiled the following innovations for Cyber Exposure analytics via Tenable Lumin:

Cyber Exposure Score:

The Cyber Exposure score is an objective measure of cyber risk, derived through data science-based measurement of vulnerability data together with threat intelligence and asset criticality. The score is automatically generated through machine learning algorithms which combine the Tenable Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR), for the likelihood of exploitability, with the Tenable Asset Criticality Rating (ACR), for the business criticality of the impacted asset. Organizations can also leverage scoring to trend improvement over time as a measure of security program effectiveness.

Cyber Exposure Benchmarking: Organizations can use the Cyber Exposure score to benchmark themselves against industry peers and measure their overall cyber risk posture. Tenable has the industry’s most extensive vulnerability intelligence, processing over 1.5 billion instances of vulnerabilities per week, which is coupled with data science to create its benchmarking knowledge base. Organizations can also drill down to benchmark internal groups against each other by business unit or geography, for example.

Remediation Guidance Workflow: Security teams will receive a list of the top recommended remediation actions to reduce the organization’s cyber exposure. For additional information, teams can drill down into specific vulnerabilities or assets for business and technical context to enable more effective remediation.

As Cyber Exposure continues to rise in strategic importance, the fundamental question facing organizations is ‘how secure are we?’ These innovations fill a huge void in the industry by enabling organizations to apply business impact and risk data to answer this question with confidence,” said Ofer Ben-David, Chief Product Officer at Tenable. “Extending our deep expertise in vulnerabilities to create an objective measure of cyber risk will help transform how cyber-related technology and business decisions are made.”

Tenable unveiled these innovations today at Edge 2019, its annual user conference. They will be available to customers starting in Q3 2019 as part of the Tenable Lumin beta. Tenable Lumin will be generally available in the second half of 2019.

Tenable Expands Cyber Exposure Ecosystem

May 24, 2019

ATLANTA / MUMBAI, India – May 24, 2019 – Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced the expansion of its Cyber Exposure ecosystem with 19 new and enhanced technology integrations. The integrations span industry-leading Mobile Device Management (MDM), public cloud infrastructure, SIEM and IT Service Management solutions to deliver greater visibility across the modern attack surface plus integrated security and IT workflows for faster detection and remediation.

We’ve built the Cyber Exposure Ecosystem with best-of-breed technology partners with one goal in mind – to help digital organizations see, understand and reduce their cyber risk holistically – and quickly – across the entire modern attack surface,” said Ray Komar, Vice President of Technical Alliances, Tenable. “We’re bringing point solutions and data sources together so our customers can more efficiently manage and reduce their risk.”

Partners of all sizes can easily integrate their solutions into the Cyber Exposure ecosystem with Tenable’s open platform. A sample of new and enhanced integrations across the Tenable.sc™ (formerly SecurityCenter) and Tenable.io® platforms for vulnerability management on-premises and in the cloud, respectively, include:

MDM:

Tenable has released new integrations for Tenable.io with BlackBerry Manager and Microsoft Intune along with updated integrations for both Tenable.io and Tenable.sc with Microsoft ActiveSync, Airwatch by VMware, MobileIron and IBM MaaS360. These integrations pull mobile asset data from the respective MDM applications for better visibility into and assessment of mobile device vulnerabilities.

Public Cloud Infrastructure:

The Tenable.io Cloud Connectors for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure Cloud Connectors now include enhanced enterprise features such as multi-account auto-discovery to ensure fast and complete asset visibility across enterprise accounts on the three most widely deployed public cloud (IaaS) platforms. Tenable.io Cloud Connectors also now support role delegation for AWS to facilitate better, more secure, authentication.

SIEM:

Tenable has released updated integrations with Tenable.sc and Tenable.io and Splunk® products that enhance vulnerability correlation with machine data, as well as simplify reporting and dashboards. Further, Tenable and Splunk customers can surface-up the high-risk vulnerability data from Tenable into Splunk Enterprise Security (ES). This triggers automated playbooks that can be orchestrated through the entire workflow for identification, enrichment, triage, remediation and reporting via Splunk Phantom®, a Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) solution. This creates a robust and unique risk-based alerting methodology to allow customers to better stack, rank and prioritize their alerts while enabling automation to dramatically decrease resolution times.

Tenable also recently became the first partner to integrate its vulnerability management solution with Chronicle. Integration with Tenable.io enriches Tenable’s vulnerability data with Chronicle assets and alerts, delivering deeper insights into security issues and faster response time.

IT Service Management:

Tenable recently enhanced its integration with ServiceNow, adding its Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR) to ServiceNow Security Operations to help joint customers prioritize, filter and view vulnerabilities for remediation based on the actual risk they pose to the business. Customers can also sync their vulnerability data 400 percent faster by ingesting multiple Tenable vulnerability data streams simultaneously into ServiceNow Vulnerability Response and the ServiceNow CMDB. The enhanced integration introduces a single integration app for both Tenable.io and Tenable.sc.

Tenable has also added support for Tenable.sc to the existing Tenable.io integration with Atlassian’s Jira Core, Jira Software and Jira Service Desk to automatically open tickets for vulnerabilities that Tenable identifies and close them once they have been resolved, providing a cohesive and trackable remediation process.

Planning Freedom for FTTH Network Operators

May 22, 2019

  • R&M at ANGA COM 2019 
  • Planning a POP distributor frame in a container design

Wetzikon / Gummersbach / Cologne / BENGALURU, India – May 22, 2019 – R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is providing broadband network operators with greater planning freedom. At ANGA COM 2019 in Cologne (June 4 to 6) the cabling specialist will be showing Fiber to the Home suppliers how they can use and extend their fiber distribution hub units in a greater number of ways. The German R&M subsidiary can be visited at stand G30 in Hall 7.

At the stand, R&M will be simulating a POP fiber distribution station in a container design. In the future, R&M will take care of the entire construction of such FTTH distribution hub units for the network operators. The service portfolio ranges from individual planning to the assembly-ready delivery of the distribution station.

An example of the planning freedom made possible by R&M is the Optical Distribution Frame (ODF) with the newly developed PRIME modules. These make it possible for FTTH suppliers to initially equip their networks to suit local requirements and then to extend them later as required – following the pay as you grow principle. This approach makes it possible to plan with manageable investment costs. Network operators can react quickly to local FTTH demand and technical progress and scale broadband networks to suit requirements.

PRIME is a high density distribution platform which can be assembled, adapted and extended like separate blocks. At maximum capacity, PRIME modules can connect up to 5,376 optical fibers in one ODF. And that is setting new standards on the FTTH market. Above-ground street cabinets and cramped basements, main distributor frames, central offices and POP sites are some of the most important locations for the PRIME ODF racks.

Furthermore R&M is also presenting the extended Polaris range at ANGA COM. The outdoor boxes help network operators to connect and manage the growing number of FO cables in the tightest of spaces. They accommodate everything required at or in customer buildings: drop or subscriber and patch cords, fiber or loose tube storage, modules for trays as well as splice, splitter and patch connections. Multi-part slotted seals make it easier to insert the cables. They no longer have to be threaded through the seals – as is the case with conventional boxes.

The modular principle of the boxes makes it possible to gradually adapt fiber optic supply to market requirements. FTTH suppliers can configure them freely and fill them at a later date. The boxes are used to create every typical topology in the access network area. They can be used in all kinds of premises from a family home to a residential estate. Within buildings, the boxes are suitable for building entry points, risers, floor distributors and optical termination outlets.

A new CCC FO housing is also available. It is particularly suitable for the area of FTTx networks, whose need for flexible and extendible cabling solutions is constantly growing.

For the first time, R&M is presenting its own FO cable production at a German trade show. The cable plant in the Czech Republic offers a wide portfolio of products and variants. One of its focal areas is manufacturing cables to suit individual customer requirements.
