Tenable | March 13, 2023
Tenable®, the Exposure Management company, announced unveiling new features within Tenable OT Security, delivering greater protection for operational technology (OT), industrial control systems and critical infrastructure, regardless of deployment size or environment configuration.
The new feature keeps the CISO's organization front and center, making it easier to protect and maintain governance of the whole attack surface using the same tools and processes throughout their infrastructure, whether IT, OT, IoT, the cloud, or other platforms.
Tenable is ideally positioned to assist its customers in meeting their security needs by offering an all-encompassing solution for securing mixed environments. This latest update enhances Tenable OT Security's vulnerability detection capabilities with an improvement to the OT active scanner and a tighter integration with Tenable's Nessus, the market-leading vulnerability scanning solution. Tenable OT Security now provides companies with unparalleled scanning capabilities by leveraging the technology relied upon by over 40,000 security teams worldwide.
Key new capabilities include:
Increased Asset Discovery and Visibility
Advanced Vulnerability and Threat Detection
Enhanced Dashboards and Reporting
Amir Hirsh, General Manager of OT Security, Tenable, said, "We consistently hear from CISOs that they have been tasked with security for mixed environments that include both OT and IT technologies, but they don't have the requisite visibility to secure either well. The new capabilities added to Tenable OT Security provide our customers with full visibility, security and control of all their environments and assets, in one consolidated view." He added, "Now, our customers can leverage the full strength of Tenable OT active scanning, tightly integrated with embedded Nessus scans for IT assets, to create a clear view of all assets, their vulnerabilities, risk score, attack path analysis and more."

BigID | March 17, 2023
BigID, the leading platform for data security, compliance, privacy, and governance, today introduced purpose-built AI and ML-based data discovery and classification capabilities designed to quickly and easily detect secrets across enterprise data and reduce risk from potential data breaches and leaks.
Secrets - including as API keys, tokens, usernames and passwords, and security certificates - are commonly shared, cloned, and distributed across enterprise data environments as a means for better collaboration and efficiency. Unfortunately, the proliferation of secrets across these environments increases the attack surface and quickly raises security risks. Data containing secrets can inadvertently get pushed into production, while other secrets can be exposed to internal and external bad actors.
With BigID's native secrets detection capabilities, organizations can:
Scan for secrets across the entire software development ecosystem including GitLab, GitHub, Jira, Confluence, Powershell scripts, Slack, and hundreds of other data sources across the environment
Detect secrets faster and more accurately using patented AI and ML-based data classification techniques
Proactively protect secrets with streamlined and automated remediation to continually mitigate the threat of exposure
"Secrets-in-code remains one of the most overlooked vulnerabilities in security, despite being a priority target in some of the biggest breaches of late," said Tyler Young, CISO at BigID. "BigID's purpose-built AI and ML-based data discovery and classification give security teams speed and confidence to protect secrets from unwanted exposure so they don't become another headline."
BigID enables organizations to know their enterprise data and take action for data-centric security, privacy, compliance and governance. Customers deploy BigID to proactively discover, manage, protect, and get more value from their regulated, sensitive, and personal data across their data landscape. BigID has been recognized for its data intelligence innovation as a 2019 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, named to the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100, the 2021 Inc 5000 as the #19th fastest growing company and #1 in Security, the 2021 and 2022 Deloitte 500, and an RSA Innovation Sandbox winner.
