Tenable Inc, the cyber exposure company, has been named a leader in Forrester’s report, “The Forrester Wave: Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Solutions, Q4, 2021”
In its first-ever ICS Security Solutions Wave, Forrester evaluated vendors’ capabilities across 27 different criteria and categorised them as Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders and Challengers. As one of only three leaders, Tenable received the highest possible scores (5.0) in seven criteria, including ICS protocol support, vulnerability risk management for operational technology, execution roadmap, innovation roadmap, planned enhancements, commercial model and product security.
As escalating attacks on critical infrastructure continue, organisations struggle with gaining unified visibility across their dynamic environments of legacy operational technology (OT), internet-connected ICS and modern IT. To address this challenge, Tenable.ot allows organisations to benefit from the efficiencies and cost savings of converged IT and OT environments in a risk-informed way. By providing a detailed, threat-based score optimised for both IT and OT assets, Tenable delivers greater security and risk-based intelligence across mission- and safety-critical environments. Tenable.ot was recently added to the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program Approved Product List (APL), allowing federal agencies and departments to purchase Tenable.ot through the CDM Program using the General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule.
“The rush to modernise critical infrastructure and the ICS that underpins it has converged the worlds of IT and OT. It’s no longer adequate to address the security of these environments in a siloed, disjointed fashion,” said Nico Popp, chief product officer, Tenable.
