Tenable has announced new product innovations in Tenable.sc (formerly SecurityCenter) and Tenable.io to continuously discover and assess known and unknown assets across on-premises and cloud environments from a single platform at no extra charge.

The latest releases are based on Tenable’s industry-leading Nessus Network Monitor (NNM) for passive network monitoring, which has been a pioneer in continuous monitoring for over 10 years with one of the industry’s broadest asset coverage.

Tenable’s latest offerings enable customers to not only automatically detect every asset across their computing environments, but also assess them for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. This new functionality is available in the base Tenable.sc and Tenable.io products, eliminating the need for multiple applications and data silos.

With the new features customers can use NNM within Tenable.io and Tenable.sc to continuously monitor their networks to discover rogue assets without the need to consume a product license. This capability will help security teams eliminate blindspots due to previously unknown assets or new assets added to the network between scans. This capability will be available in Tenable.sc and Tenable.io in 2019.

The latest update also allows rogues asset automatic assessment. This means that customers can automatically assess rogue assets without manual intervention by enabling security teams to define their own policies for scanning newly-discovered assets. This will help organisations improve their overall security posture while decreasing operational costs of manual processes. Rogue Asset Automatic Assessment is generally available in Tenable.sc and will be available in Tenable.io in Q3 2019.

Lastly, it has Tenable Cloud Connector auto-discovery, which provides live visibility into AWS, Azure and GCP cloud workloads as they are continuously deployed and turned off. With Auto-Discovery, customers can automatically collect and track assets from all member accounts associated with the master account without any manual intervention to ensure full visibility across cloud environments. Auto-Discovery is now generally available in Tenable.io.

“A strategic Cyber Exposure program provides unified visibility into where all assets are located and to what extent they’re exposed, which is increasingly difficult to do with transient devices like cloud, mobile and IoT,” said Renaud Deraison, CTO, Tenable. “We are committed to helping customers on their Cyber Exposure journey to provide complete visibility across their attack surface, including both known and unknown assets, ultimately eliminating dangerous blind spots before they can be compromised.”
