In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
— The cybersecurity industry has failed to adequately address customers’ needs for visibility and understanding of their security posture. The result? Billions of dollars in damage from threats like WannaCry and NotPetya, and devastating losses of personal information by companies such as Equifax. In 2017, Tenable publicly declared our commitment to address this by pioneering an emerging discipline called Cyber Exposure. Cyber Exposure will finally give security teams and CISOs not only visibility, but also a true understanding of their security posture – across all assets, in both technical and business terms. Tenable’s clarity of vision and commitment is unique in the vulnerability management market.
— Tenable.io, the world’s first Cyber Exposure platform, provides comprehensive vulnerability management, uniquely providing both breadth of asset coverage and depth of insight. It is the only solution to cover IT, cloud, IoT and operational technology (OT), giving organizations complete and centralized visibility over their entire attack surface.
— Tenable’s innovation is being recognized in the market, resulting in consistent growth of 45%+. No security vendor has been able to help customers close the Cyber Exposure gap – the difference between their full exposure and the subset they can see and manage – until now. Through our release of Tenable.io, Tenable is transforming vulnerability management to address the modern attack surface. We are enabling organizations to identify, analyze and remediate their security issues quickly and efficiently.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
In 2017, Tenable launched our vision for Cyber Exposure and backed it up with the release of Tenable.io, the industry’s first Cyber Exposure platform. Cyber Exposure is an evolution of vulnerability management that helps security teams measure their attack surface to accurately understand and reduce cyber risk.
Previously, outdated security approaches forced CISOs to make business-impacting decisions without the necessary visibility and understanding of their security posture. Just as CFOs manage with discipline and visibility into the state of financial accounts and activities, we aim to provide the same visibility and insight into the security status of an organization’s assets and networks, so CISOs can confidently and proactively manage their information security programs.
Tenable also released a series of innovative solutions in rapid succession, including the initial release of Tenable.io™; Tenable.io Container Security to securely enable DevOps processes by providing visibility into the security of container images before deployment; Tenable.io Web Application Scanning to safely and automatically scan web applications for vulnerabilities; and Industrial Security, a solution developed in partnership with Siemens to deliver continuous asset discovery and vulnerability detection for safety-critical operational networks. These innovative solutions are providing significant value for customers. One Fortune 100 retailer deployed Tenable.io to protect a million assets in 100 days and will present on it at Edge.
Tenable achieved record Q2-17 results with $50 million+ in billings, representing over 50% growth YoY. The third quarter also represented our sixth consecutive quarter of 45%+ billings growth. The company added more than 1,000 new customers during Q2, with now close to 24,000 customers in 160 countries. More than 50% of the Fortune 500, all 10 of the 10 largest U.S. technology companies, and 22% of the companies in the Forbes Global 2000 rely on Tenable.
