Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced the industry’s first integrated Cyber Exposure solution to provide a unified view of cyber risk spanning information technology (IT) networks and operational technology (OT), from enterprise applications to industrial control systems. For the first time, security leaders can rely on a single platform to measure, manage and reduce cyber risk across both IT and OT environments with Tenable Industrial Security™ now integrated with Tenable.sc™ (formerly SecurityCenter) for vulnerability management on-premises.
Digital transformation means that the days of fully air-gapped OT assets are largely gone. Modern OT environments increasingly interconnect with IT, resulting in a complex, sensitive and vastly expanded attack surface. As effective risk management is built on a unified understanding of the entire IT/OT attack surface, organizations are shifting responsibility for OT security to the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
Yet traditional IT security solutions lack the ability to continuously discover and assess sensitive OT assets. Conversely, most OT security solutions don’t translate to the world of IT. This lack of holistic visibility creates security blind spots and increases the chances of mission- and safety-critical systems being compromised or taken offline. An attack on a high-value OT asset, for example, may begin by compromising a traditional IT asset and then moving laterally.
