COLUMBIA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tenable Network Security®, Inc., the leader in continuous monitoring of
vulnerabilities, threats and compliance, today announced its latest new source of threat analytics through an
integration with ThreatGRID’s malware analysis and threat intelligence solution. This integration enhances
Tenable’s dynamic library of known threats from the industry’s top 25 antivirus vendors, improves accuracy and
reduces the time to detect advanced malware that bypass traditional security controls.
“Today’s advanced and targeted attacks are built
to evade existing defenses and detection, so
ThreatGRID offers a new line of sight into
threats on networks and endpoints”
The addition of ThreatGRID’s securely crowdsourced intelligence gives Tenable customers a high-impact
edge to stay ahead of advanced threats. In particular, the solution enhances customers’ ability to detect
persistent malware, finding systems that have been infected even when the malware is dormant during the
time of audit. Tenable continually adds new sources of intelligence to its SecurityCenter Continuous View™
and Nessus® platforms, making them uniquely able to identify advanced threats that are exploiting vulnerable
assets, and identify those assets already compromised. Unlike other solutions, Tenable’s SecurityCenter CV
platform allows customers to do all of the following:
Analyze running processes to detect suspicious and malicious processes on
physical and virtual operating systems
Identify devices on the network communicating with known botnets and CnC
Highlight complex threats, trojans, botnets and other sophisticated malware
Discover configuration files that were altered by malware
Tenable Integration with ThreatGRID Enhances Detection of Persistent
Tenable Customers Gain Access to ThreatGRID Content that Enriches Log Data
enabling them to more quickly and accurately defend against advanced threats
Monitor registry settings for signs of compromise
Audit AV tools to ensure they are operational and up-to-date with the latest
Tenable’s risk-aware threat management model combines vulnerability data from continuous monitoring with
threat intelligence from known and rapidly changing malware. This not only provides 100% vulnerability and
threat visibility, but also prioritizes detected threats to critical, vulnerable assets.
ThreatGRID boosts Tenable’s malware detection by securely crowdsourcing and analyzing a large volume of
malware to provide high fidelity threat intelligence content with global and historical context. Tenable uses
ThreatGRID content to enrich data generated from multiple sources to improve the speed and quality of
detection of advanced attacks.
“As we add new sources of threat intelligence, we look to help customers make fast, smart risk decisions that
protect their organizations from threats that bypass point security product deployments,” said Ron Gula, CEO of
Tenable Network Security. “Our integration with ThreatGRID brings important crowdsourced intelligence into
our platform.”
“Today’s advanced and targeted attacks are built to evade existing defenses and detection, so ThreatGRID
offers a new line of sight into threats on networks and endpoints,” said Dov Yoran, Co-founder and CEO of
ThreatGRID. “We are excited that Tenable is making us part of their already strong defense against cyber
threats for their customers in all sectors and around the world, enabling them to rapidly and confidently defend
against these threats.”
