Wayne Hollinshead, director of channel sales EMEA, Tenable Network Security, said: “Wick Hill’s reputation for value added distribution and partner network, coupled with a proven track record of providing leading-edge enterprise security solutions, make them an ideal partner for Tenable as we continue to expand our position as the leading provider of continuous network monitoring solutions in the UK and globally.”

SecurityCenter Continuous View
SecurityCenter Continuous View, Tenable’s market-defining continuous network monitoring platform, brings together the unique sensors for vulnerability scanning, passive network monitoring and event data, and augments them with vulnerability and threat intelligence information to help take the pulse of your network at any time.

The recently launched SecurityCenter 5 delivers a new way to think about security assurance and risk assessment with the industry’s first ever Assurance Report Cards (ARCs). Tenable ARCS in SecurityCenter 5 help CISOs and security teams measure, analyse and communicate the effectiveness of their security programmes to C-level executives, board members and business managers, helping align security policies with business objectives.

Nessus is the most widely deployed vulnerability scanner in the world. It is available in Nessus Manager for enterprise users and Nessus Cloud (SaaS) versions.

Nessus Manager combines the powerful detection, scanning and auditing features of Nessus with extensive management and collaboration functions. Nessus Manager enables the sharing of resources including multiple Nessus scanners, scan schedules, scan policies, and most importantly, scan results among an unlimited set of users or groups controlled from a single central console.

Nessus Cloud combines the detection, scanning and auditing features of Nessus with multi-user support for enterprise teams and the flexibility of a cloud deployment. Nessus Cloud is also a PCI DSS Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) solution.

The recently launched Nessus Agents, available for both Nessus Manager and Nessus Cloud, addresses the unique security challenges that come with an increasingly mobile workforce. Agents help reduce the attack surface of your network by enabling portable devices, such as laptops, to be checked for vulnerabilities, configuration and compliance even when not connected to the network during scheduled assessments. Agents are lightweight, can scan virtual machines and help alleviate the credential headaches associated with traditional network scanning.
