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."
