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."

Arkose Labs | January 30, 2023
Arkose Labs™, one of the worldwide leaders in bot management and account security, announced the launch of Arkose Email Intelligence™. This new tool prevents bots and bad actors from using fraudulent or dangerous email addresses to target online services and apps.
Legacy email intelligence systems are not optimized and are too costly to utilize in high-volume applications such as new account registration that are targets of bot-driven assaults. Arkose Email Intelligence combines email risk discovery with the industry-leading Arkose Protect, a bot detection and challenge platform, to create the first email intelligence solution.
This solution prevents bots and bad actors from using fake, throw-away, and other high-risk email addresses to develop synthetic online accounts and launch volumetric account takeover (ATO) attacks. In the second half of 2022, the creation of bogus accounts increased by 81% compared to the first half. Additionally, 11% of all attack attempt sessions were ATOs in 2022 and were of the same severity.
Extremely high market demand exists for an email intelligence service that is both highly effective and reasonably priced. Existing services are exorbitantly costly, often compelling CISOs and product teams to use email intelligence at restricted locations more profoundly in the user flow of an application, such as during the payment transaction. This trade-off leaves important occasions, such as the creation of a new account, exposed to assault and misuse by email addresses that are fake or high-risk.
Arkose Email Intelligence is meant to provide robust abuse protection at a much lower cost than previous industry solutions. This allows businesses to afford email intelligence beyond standard transactions.
In addition to combating automated and fraud farm attacks, Arkose Email Intelligence offers organizations over forty relevant data insights. These extensive data points and signals give a multidimensional perspective of the risk connected with the email address, allowing for additional threat assessment and decision-making.
About Arkose Labs
Arkose Labs is one of the industry leaders in bot management. Its novel method identifies genuine user intent and mitigates threats in real time. In addition, risk assessments and interactive authentication difficulties degrade the return on investment (ROI) behind attacks, ensuring long-term security and enhancing consumer throughput. The firm, headquartered in San Mateo, California, with operations in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia, San Jose, Costa Rica, and London, United Kingdom, placed 106th on the North American Deloitte Fast 500 list for 2022.
