Recent security breaches in major organisations have highlighted the difficulties of protecting networks in an ever-changing dynamic IT landscape. While companies have invested in multiple, preventative security technologies such as authentication, anti-virus, automated patching, next generation firewalls and security event management, cyber criminals have taken advantage of blind spots that have increased as networks have become ever more complex and distributed.
Tenable Network Security, Inc. helps reduce the attack surface of your business-critical networks through continuous network monitoring, giving businesses the assurance that all their other existing IT security investments are working as promised. Tenable products can monitor activity and identify risk throughout the modern IT landscape, including devices that you may not know about, portable devices, virtual systems and cloud applications.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, which has just been appointed UK distributor for Tenable, commented: "Organisations have been making increased use of penetration testing to deal with the growing threat scenario. However, they are now becoming more aware of the need for continuous network monitoring, to ensure their organisation is confident about its security preparedness, in terms of cyberattack, and the ability to meet compliance requirements. This is very important, not just for the security team, but also for the whole board."
Wayne Hollinshead, director of channel sales EMEA, Tenable Network Security, commented: "We're excited to be working with an established partner like Wick Hill to grow our presence in the UK and deliver world-class customer service to match our world-class continuous network monitoring and vulnerability management solutions.
In today's evolving IT landscape, organisations with successful security programs are those that have knowledge of their networks and are able to prioritise security as a business objective. By providing a continuous assessment of comprehensive network health and security, Tenable gives customers the ability to always know the status of their networks—from the exact number and type of asset deployed, to every instance of an unpatched vulnerability across the entire enterprise."
Wick Hill will sell the full range of Tenable solutions, including SecurityCenter Continuous View, which provides a comprehensive and integrated view of network health, Nessus Manager, Nessus Cloud and Nessus, the global standard in detecting and assessing network data.
