Integration Spotlight: Enhanced Security with Credentialed Vulnerability Assessments with Tenable

Written by Jordan True

July 7th, 2016

Organizations today are only barely scratching the surface when it comes to vulnerability assessments with unauthenticated scans. Unauthenticated scans still leave many unknowns that leave your organization vulnerable to attack.

Credentialed Vulnerability Assessments Made Easy

We are excited to announce our partnership and integration between Nessus® Cloud and Nessus® Manager with Thycotic Secret Server. The seamless integration provides a secure storage of privileged credentials in Secret Server and the automatic retrieval at scan time by Nessus®. This provides the ability to easily perform credentialed scans while having full accountability and control around your organization’s privileged credentials.  The integration also dramatically improves security by reducing pass-the-hash exposure, automates the entire process for all the devices on your network, and ensures all devices are scanned while being audited for later reporting.

Why Thycotic and Tenable

Incorporating a credentialed vulnerability assessment into your security program means your organization will have access to faster and more reliable information around detection and mitigation. No longer do your Security Administrators have to be burdened by the logistics around credentialed network vulnerability assessments.  Matt Alderman, vice president of strategy, Tenable Network Security said in the alliance release announcement, “Password management for credentialed scans can be challenging, and without authenticated scans, customers can miss local vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and other security issues that expose hosts to compromise. This integration helps our customers more easily manage credentials to run authenticated scans, giving them the visibility they need to manage security threats across all of their assets.”

Isn’t it time to make managing credentialed scans seamless and secure?

Learn more about the integration between Tenable Nessus® and Thycotic Secret Server during our upcoming ‘Automating Credentialed Vulnerability Assessments’ webinar on Thursday, July 19th. Register now!
