Tenable, Inc. and ServiceNow have rolled out a new alliance linking the Tenable Cyber Exposure Platform with ServiceNow’s security operations.
The combined solution is intended to enhance security visibility by automatically discovering IT, Cloud, and IoT assets, assessing potential vulnerabilities, linking vulnerabilities with an asset’s business criticality, and prioritizing issues based on this data to accelerate remediation. Joint customers can run automated workflows to solve their most vulnerable items first. In addition, the integration can trigger an automatic re-assessment of the asset to provide validation that the issues were sufficiently resolved, creating a complete, closed-loop remediation process.
“Security teams can’t declare ‘mission accomplished’ after the vulnerability scan alone,” said Sean Convery, general manager of ServiceNow’s security business. “Together, Tenable and ServiceNow give customers an understanding of business impact and security risk, so patching and other response actions can have maximum impact and accelerate remediation.”
The integration is available today between Tenable SecurityCenter and ServiceNow Security Operations on the ServiceNow Store, and it is expected to become available between Tenable.io and ServiceNow Security Operations later this year.
Digital transformation has led to a proliferation of technologies and computing platforms, which, in turn, has led to a growing number of security blind spots. This alliance is intended to mitigate this issue and break down organizational silos separating security and IT teams.
