Tenable expands support for leading cybersecurity frameworks

By Staff Writers

Outgoing US president Barack Obama issued executive order 13636 in February 2013, directing the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to work with stakeholders to develop a voluntary framework — based on existing standards, guidelines, and practices  for reducing cyber risks to critical infrastructure.

Tenable Network Security,, a global leader in transforming security technology for the business, has expanded support for the industry’s top three security frameworks, Centre for Internet Security Critical Security Controls (CSC), ISO/IEC 27001/27002 (ISO 27K) and the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (CSF), enabling organisations to automate technical controls and improve security effectiveness.

According to the Trends in Security Framework Adoption Survey, a research study conducted by Dimensional Research on behalf of Tenable, 44% of organisations use more than one cybersecurity framework. A total of 35% of these are not using any framework plan to adopt one or more of them in the next year. Tenable offers a simple and flexible way to implement and maintain the technical controls of the world’s three leading security frameworks, helping customers move away from periodic compliance to a security model based on continuous conformance.

“Organisations are constantly looking for ways to streamline and maintain their security operations,” said Gary Hayslip, deputy director and chief information security officer, city of San Diego, California. “The ability to automate and simplify conformance to the leading security frameworks helps CISOs determine if their security controls are inadequate, and then develop an ongoing improvement plan to track progress and communicate overall security status to the c-suite.”

With Tenable, organisations, including those adopting multiple frameworks, have access to out-of-box reports, dashboards and assurance report cards (ARCs) to efficiently automate and demonstrate conformity to industry best practices. Customers also benefit from broad coverage across the entire IT environment, including physical, virtual and cloud systems, giving them the continuous visibility and critical context needed for a holistic view of their security posture.

“Cybersecurity has become a top boardroom priority and CISOs are under tremendous pressure to provide the assurance to the board that proper security controls are in place and operating effectively,” said Cris Thomas, strategist, Tenable Network Security. “Tenable alleviates this pressure by giving organisations the right measurement tools to communicate the security controls of the leading frameworks, helping them mitigate risk and better protect the network.”
