The​ ​Kenna​ ​Risk​ ​Meter​ ​lets​ ​you​ ​know​ ​exactly​ ​what​ ​risk you​ ​incur​ ​across​ ​all​ ​your​ ​groups​ ​of​ ​assets​ ​by​ ​displaying the​ ​results​ ​of​ ​both​ ​your​ ​vulnerability​ ​scan​ ​data​ ​as​ ​well as​ ​external​ ​threat​ ​intelligence​ ​so​ ​that​ ​you​ ​can​ ​clearly see​ ​which​ ​assets​ ​are​ ​subject​ ​to​ ​active​ ​Internet breaches,​ ​exploits​ ​and​ ​zero-day​ ​threats.
● Kenna​ ​also​ ​helps​ ​customers​ ​shave​ ​hours​ ​off​ ​their remediation​ ​time​ ​by​ ​prioritizing​ ​the​ ​most​ ​important remediations​ ​based​ ​on​ ​real-world​ ​threat​ ​intelligence. Kenna​ ​correlates​ ​attack,​ ​threat​ ​and​ ​exploit​ ​data aggregated​ ​by​ ​its​ ​threat​ ​processing​ ​engine​ ​against customers’​ ​vulnerabilities​ ​twenty-four​ ​hours​ ​a​ ​day, seven​ ​days​ ​a​ ​week.​ ​Furthermore,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to achieve​ ​a​ ​certain​ ​risk​ ​score,​ ​Kenna​ ​will​ ​present​ ​exactly the​ ​vulnerabilities​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​remediate​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to get​ ​to​ ​your​ ​desired​ ​level.
● Kenna​ ​also​ ​makes​ ​reporting​ ​easier​ ​and​ ​better​ ​with asset​ ​tags​ ​and​ ​groups​ ​that​ ​help​ ​make​ ​data​ ​more relevant​ ​and​ ​allowing​ ​for​ ​customization​ ​of​ ​reporting, access,​ ​remediation​ ​and​ ​dashboards.​ ​Its​ ​unique tagging​ ​system​ ​offers​ ​greater​ ​flexibility​ ​by​ ​allowing users​ ​to​ ​organize​ ​assets​ ​right​ ​within​ ​the​ ​Kenna platform​ ​and​ ​enabling​ ​users​ ​to​ ​easily​ ​see​ ​the vulnerabilities​ ​for​ ​any​ ​part​ ​of​ ​their​ ​environment. Kenna​ ​Alerts​ ​provide​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​proactively​ ​stay​ ​on top​ ​of​ ​risk​ ​across​ ​the​ ​environment.​ ​Emails​ ​or​ ​in-app notifications​ ​let​ ​users​ ​know​ ​when​ ​risk​ ​reaches​ ​critical thresholds,​ ​or​ ​when​ ​most​ ​valued​ ​asset​ ​groups​ ​face new​ ​threats,​ ​so​ ​they​ ​can​ ​take​ ​immediate​ ​action.

Summary of Achievements

Kenna​ ​is​ ​an​ ​innovative​ ​vulnerability​ ​and​ ​risk​ ​intelligence platform​ ​that​ ​processes​ ​more​ ​than​ ​1​ ​million​ ​vulnerabilities each​ ​hour,​ ​helping​ ​IT​ ​teams​ ​prioritize​ ​and​ ​thwart​ ​would-be security​ ​threats.
Organizations​ ​today​ ​face​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​vulnerabilities​ ​–​ ​including malware​ ​exploits,​ ​out-of-date​ ​software,​ ​IT​ ​compliance​ ​issues, new​ ​technologies​ ​being​ ​introduced​ ​to​ ​the​ ​system​ ​and​ ​more​ ​- but​ ​are​ ​unable​ ​to​ ​prioritize,​ ​report​ ​and​ ​remediate​ ​them effectively​ ​across​ ​enterprise-wide​ ​systems.​ ​Traditional, human-powered​ ​monitoring​ ​and​ ​tracking​ ​in​ ​spreadsheets​ ​no longer​ ​works​ ​to​ ​address​ ​the​ ​speed​ ​at​ ​which​ ​change​ ​occurs​ ​and attackers​ ​advance.​ ​​ ​The​ ​modern​ ​enterprise​ ​needs​ ​data​ ​science at​ ​scale,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​way​ ​to​ ​measure​ ​risk​ ​that​ ​can​ ​be​ ​presented everywhere,​ ​including​ ​inside​ ​the​ ​boardroom.
Kenna​ ​knows​ ​how​ ​to​ ​solve​ ​these​ ​problems,​ ​and​ ​has experienced​ ​firsthand​ ​just​ ​how​ ​frustrating​ ​and​ ​challenging vulnerability​ ​management​ ​can​ ​be​ ​–​ ​the​ ​struggles​ ​with​ ​being unable​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​up​ ​with​ ​the​ ​volume​ ​of​ ​scan​ ​data,​ ​having​ ​to settle​ ​for​ ​inadequate​ ​security​ ​due​ ​to​ ​budget​ ​constraints,
picking​ ​a​ ​remediation​ ​list​ ​at​ ​random​ ​(and​ ​hoping​ ​for​ ​the​ ​best), and​ ​being​ ​unable​ ​to​ ​measure​ ​and​ ​report​ ​on​ ​efforts​ ​to​ ​reduce exposure​ ​to​ ​risk.
Kenna’s​ ​approach​ ​to​ ​threat​ ​and​ ​vulnerability​ ​management integrates​ ​the​ ​results​ ​of​ ​vulnerability​ ​scan​ ​data—Qualys, Nessus,​ ​Rapid​ ​7,​ ​and​ ​dozens​ ​more—with​ ​the​ ​results​ ​from​ ​8 different​ ​threat​ ​feeds.​ ​The​ ​result?​ ​A​ ​clear​ ​list​ ​of​ ​what vulnerabilities​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be​ ​prioritized​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​a company’s​ ​security​ ​posture.​ ​This​ ​also​ ​makes​ ​it​ ​simpler​ ​to report​ ​on​ ​activity​ ​and​ ​show​ ​the​ ​impact​ ​of​ ​remediations.
