In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

- Unlike traditional vulnerability scanners and management systems, Kenna leverages both external and internal data from enterprise assets and “in the wild” threat intelligence. This real-time, reality-based context enables Kenna to prioritize vulnerabilities by their impact on the business to assure that work is prioritized to optimally and demonstratively improve security posture. This Data Science and “in the wild” context approach behind Kenna is unique – no other company has achieved the results that Kenna has to date, or is as widely deployed in more than 350+ IT departments.

- Kenna extends its proactive cyber risk to predictive cyber risk with its Exploit Prediction capabilities that leverage Kenna Cyber Risk Context Technologies™. Kenna Exploit Prediction model has been third-party tested (https://www.kennasecurity.com/prioritization-to-prediction-report/) to deliver greater efficiency, far less effort, fewer false positives, and better coverage of an organization's attack surface over other common vulnerability remediation strategies.

- Kenna Security’s patented technologies cover vulnerability identification based on breach data, internet breach correlations, and ordered computer vulnerability remediation reporting. (https://www.kennasecurity.com/news/kenna-security-granted-patent-for-machine-learning-methods-used-to-predict-exploits/) These protected technologies are all necessary to compute risk for IT assets and risk-based remediation.

Overview

Kenna’s risk-based approach to vulnerability management evolves an outdated model that is not suited to today’s security challenges and leaves organizations scrambling to improve its security against a seemingly endless wave of threats.

For decades, industry practice has been to introduce and sell more equipment or products that deliver more “live” information or protection. But preventing data breaches requires more than “prevent and react” solutions. Enterprise security and IT staff are overwhelmed by the amount of vulnerabilities that are discovered during infrastructures scanning and audits. They need to understand which threats represent the greatest risk to their organization, so they can be addressed before a successful attack happens. Traditional solutions provide the data, but not the context needed to evaluate which vulnerabilities to remediate.

Kenna’s innovation enables our customers to intelligently predict, prepare and pre-empt likely attacks on their organization before they happen. Unlike its competitors, Kenna offers the only technology that looks beyond the organizational level to identify which of the multitude of vulnerabilities are most likely to pose a threat. Through advanced and patented data science and predictive modeling, Kenna prioritizes the vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk based on actual threat activity globally and can also predict the likelihood of future exploits being developed for newly identified vulnerabilities. The result: Companies are able to identify and patch security vulnerabilities before a hack occurs, proactively protecting the organization.
