Last week Tenable Chief Product Officer Nico Popp briefed me on a new approach to cybersecurity Tenable released today, October 4, 2022. 

Three main ideas

  • Exposure – Be proactive, there is now a larger attack exposure, key is provide visibility of exposure
  • Management – security suppliers give a lot of stuff, but the key is how to operationalize
  • Platform – contextualize exposure

New capabilities in Tenable One:

  • Lumin Exposure View – Provides clear insight into an organization’s security exposure and allows security teams to answer critical questions such as: “how secure are we?” and “where do we stand in our preventative and mitigation efforts?”
  • Attack path analysis (APA) – Provides insight into the attacker’s mindset by monitoring gaps across endpoints, identity privileges and cloud deployments to proactively visualize attack paths
  • Asset inventory – Provides a centralized view of all assets, including IT, cloud, Active Directory and Web applications

Tenable is launching Tenable One, an exposure management platform that breaks down silos by bringing together internal data from Tenable’s tools and external exposure data from other sources, to provide one unified view into an organization’s assets and vulnerabilities across the attack surface. With Tenable One, Tenable has become a cloud and analytics-led platform-first company.

What is exposure management? This new category moves away from offering a “choose your own adventure” menu of self-limiting and siloed tools. Often referred to as the opposite of XDR, exposurement management allows security pros to gain a complete picture of their exposure and better allocate time/resources to focus on legitimately reducing risk.
