Tenable Completes Acquisition of Bit Discovery and Announces Tenable.asm for External Attack Surface Management

COLUMBIA, MD., June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tenable Holdings, Inc. (“Tenable”), the Cyber ​​Exposure Company, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Bit Discovery, Inc. (“Bit Discovery”), a leader in external attack surface management (EASM). Tenable will launch Tenable.asm, a new solution that will provide all the functionality of Bit Discovery technology and allow customers to get a more complete 360-degree view of their entire attack surface so they can better understand how attackers could gain access through the internet and help prioritize remediation steps.

Gain visibility on invisible risks
An organization’s digital footprint extends far beyond its walls, as various services, applications, and APIs are accessed or reside on the Internet. To prevent new security vulnerabilities and to ensure proper organizational risk management, it is essential that organizations have visibility into and understand known and unknown assets on the Internet.

Modern organizations need continuous monitoring of their entire attack surface and contextual intelligence to know where to prioritize remediation efforts. Tenable.asm will continuously map the entire Internet and discover connections to an organization’s Internet resources, whether internal or external to their networks, in order to assess the security of their entire operating surface. external attack. When used with the rest of Tenable’s solutions, customers will be able to gain context of potential attack paths from external systems to critical assets across their organization, providing a comprehensive measure of their overall exposure. Tenable.asm is expected to be available for purchase in early Q3 2022.

Because the security of Internet-connected assets is a top priority and issue for CISOs, Tenable also integrates quarterly fundamental attack surface discovery into its existing market-leading cyber exposure solutions at no additional cost. for Tenable customers. New features expected to be included in Tenable.io®Tenable.sc™ and Tenable.ep™ in early Q3 2022. A new version of Nessus will also include asset discovery.

“Very few, if any, organizations truly understand their full digital footprint. One of the most common yet dangerous security breaches is misconfiguring something in the cloud and making it accessible to the internet. Organizations know less and less about which assets are exposed,” said Glen Pendley, Chief Technology Officer, Tenable. “Every business or government entity should have advanced features such as those found in Tenable.asm, but given the critical security importance of having ASM everywhere, Tenable ensures that its customers have at least one feature of fundamental discovery in the solutions they are already using.. This will allow them to identify points of vulnerability that were completely invisible until now, with the aim of preventing attacks rather than simply managing them.

Bit Discovery offers Tenable customers:

  • Discovery of previously unknown Internet-connected assets
  • Rich context and attribution for exposed domains, subdomains and other technologies
  • Continuous monitoring of the ever-changing external attack surface

Representatives from Tenable and Bit Discovery will be present at RSA Conference 2022 at the Moscone North Expo at booth #6245.
