Authenticated credential management

Tenable Network Security : 21 June, 2016  (New Product)
Partnershipt between Thycotic and Tenable simplifies credential management and authenticated assessments.
Authenticated credential management

Tenable Network Security has announced a technology alliance partnership with Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) products for more than 3500 organisations worldwide, bringing customers a more simplified and secure credentials management approach.

Security administrators are often bogged down with the logistical details of conducting credentialed network vulnerability assessments, from gaining access to privileged accounts to navigating through constantly changing usernames and passwords. This technology integration removes the credential management burden that accompanies vulnerability management practices.

“Tenable is committed to helping organisations of all sizes prioritise threats and weaknesses and reduce exposure and loss across all IT environments,” said Matt Alderman, vice president of strategy, Tenable Network Security. “Password management for credential scans can be challenging, and without authenticated scans, customers can miss local vulnerabilities misconfigurations and other security issues that expose hosts to compromise. This integration helps our customers more easily manage credentials to run authenticated scans, giving them the visibility they need to manage security threats across all of their assets.”

The integration between Tenable Nessus and Thycotic’s Secret Server makes managing credential scans seamless and secure. Accounts are centralised and securely stored in Thycotic Secret Server and Tenable requests them at run time, ensuring customers have the correct access every time without the hassles of manual credential management.

“Thycotic is committed to protecting our customers’ privileged accounts, while still being a fast to deploy, easy to use, scalable enterprise-class product,” said Ben Yoder, product manager, Thycotic. “In partnership with Tenable, we can now enable organisations to easily perform credentialed scans to find the most accurate vulnerability information without compromising accountability or control of privileged credentials.”
