Tenable Announces Availability Of Frictionless Assessment In AWS Marketplace
AWS re:Invent — Tenable Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced that its groundbreaking Frictionless Assessment capabilities in Tenable.io, for vulnerability management in the cloud, are available in AWS Marketplace. Customers can now quickly and confidently harness the benefits of cloud-first environments without the need to deploy periodic scans or even agent-based approaches.
“Cloud computing delivers a massive competitive edge thanks to benefits from efficiency to scalability to mobility and speed. But legacy security tactics were built for a much slower, on-premises world and have no place in the cloud, where workloads can change by the second,” said Renaud Deraison, chief technology officer and co-founder, Tenable.
Frictionless Assessment from Tenable is a revolutionary approach to vulnerability management for modern assets. Frictionless Assessment leverages native technologies deployed as part of the cloud asset to continuously assess instances for vulnerabilities. Customers will be able to evaluate cloud assets without interruption, quickly detecting new vulnerabilities as their environment changes without ever having to schedule a scan or deploy an agent.
This capability will launch first on Amazon Web Services (AWS), using AWS Systems Manager Run Command, to add an additional layer of security by allowing users to remotely and securely manage the configuration of their cloud instances without interruption. With the life of cloud workloads commonly measured in hours, Frictionless Assessment is designed to solve a key challenge of achieving and maintaining accurate visibility into cyber risk across all cloud-based assets.
Frictionless Assessment is being rolled out to customers in a phased approach by region and is now generally available to customers in Asia Pacific. Those customers can purchase Tenable.io with Frictionless Assessment in AWS Marketplace. Frictionless Assessment will be generally available to all customers later in the fourth quarter.
