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."

Illumio, Inc., the Zero Trust Segmentation company, today launched the Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation ROI Calculator, a self-service tool that quantifies what an organization’s return on investment (ROI) on Illumio’s Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) platform would be, bringing more clarity into their decision-making process.
In a difficult economy, organizations need to understand and be able to show the impact of every dollar they spend, and they need solutions that deliver a reliable return on investment. By answering a few simple questions related to their specific business environment, respondents will receive a written assessment of the quantitative impact Illumio ZTS would have on their organization, which will arm decision makers with data to support further investment in cybersecurity initiatives that reduce risk and increase resilience to breaches.
Illumio recently commissioned a Total Economic ImpactTM of Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) study from Forrester Consulting, who interviewed Forrester analysts, Illumio stakeholders, and Illumio customers from organizations of varying sizes and industries to inform their findings. The study found that Illumio delivered a total benefit of $10.2 million over three years and paid for itself in six months for a composite organization. Additionally, over three years Illumio ZTS:
Reduced a cyberattack’s blast radius by 66 percent by restricting lateral movement, which saved $1.8 million via decreased overall risk exposure.
Drove $3 million in savings via tool consolidation and reduced firewall costs.
Saved $3.8 million by limiting unplanned downtime.
Increased InfoSec’s operational efficiency by $1.6 million by reducing the time and effort needed to implement security policy.
Delivered 111 percent return on investment.
“The security industry is moving from the prevention and detection eras to the breach containment era to minimize the impact of breaches on the broader organization,” said PJ Kirner, CTO and co-founder at Illumio. “With a challenging economy, CFOs and boards are asking security teams to quantify the return on their investments. With this ROI calculator, leaders can validate the impact ZTS would have on their specific organization, accelerating the implementation of core security strategies that augment prevention and detection technologies to reduce risk and increase resilience to breaches more quickly.”
