iTWire last week interviewed Tenable’s Dick Bussiere and was not surprised at his assertion “Design hybrid and cloud networks to be safe but assume they will be compromised.”
The company announced today that it has joined the Amazon Web Service (AWS) Partner Network (APN) as launch partner for the new APN Security Competency.
Tenable’s Nessus is pre-authorised for vulnerability, compliance and threat assessments of AWS environments. Customers are able to leverage the power of Nessus—including the industry’s largest collection of network security checks and configuration and compliance audits— to ensure critical IT applications are hardened and secure.
Because Nessus solutions are available in the AWS Marketplace as pre-built virtual appliances, customers are able to deploy Nessus quickly and easily.
“Nessus is the most widely deployed vulnerability management solution in the world,” said Ron Gula, CEO, Tenable Network Security. “With Nessus available on the AWS Marketplace, AWS customers are able to deploy a more seamless configuration and vulnerability management solution across both cloud and on-premises environments.”
The APN Competency Program provides AWS customers with industry-leading APN Partners who have demonstrated technical expertise and innovation in specialized solution areas including infrastructure security, policy management, identity management, security monitoring, vulnerability management and data protection.
