Mobile SDKs (software developments kits); love them or hate them, they're here to stay. They provide our apps with all sorts of functionality that would be incredibly time consuming to build, and they give us another means to monetize our apps. While it would be difficult to argue that SDKs aren’t useful, it’s also hard for developers to get a good idea of the amount of resources used by each SDK once the app is in production ...
Tenable Network Security announced the latest release of its cloud-based Tenable.io platform, delivering new and enhanced capabilities to empower organizations to understand and reduce their cyber risk across the full range of traditional and modern assets.
“Massive shifts in computing have left enterprises struggling to gain visibility into their exposure areas. The rise of IoT and the convergence of IT and OT are only compounding the issue,” said Dave Cole, Chief Product Officer at Tenable. “The vulnerability management tools of yesterday are falling short in providing CISOs with a complete and reliable view of the entire modern attack surface so they can take a proactive approach to managing the security challenges of today and tomorrow.”
With Tenable.io, organizations have complete and centralized visibility over the full range of traditional and modern assets. Powered by Nessus sensors and third party data collection technologies, Tenable.io provides the industry’s greatest breadth and sophistication of asset discovery and vulnerability identification across the entire elastic attack surface - spanning IT, cloud, OT and IoT - all within a single platform. Only Tenable.io arms security teams and chief information security officers (CISOs) with the visibility required to understand cyber risk across the entire attack surface at the pace of innovation and digital transformation.
New and Enhanced Capabilities of the Tenable.io Platform:
- General Availability of Tenable.io Container Security: Tenable.io Container Security seamlessly and securely enables DevOps processes by providing visibility into the security of container images as they are created. Through integration with the container build process, it provides vulnerability assessment, malware detection and policy enforcement prior to container deployment — enabling security teams to turn a blind spot into a strength.

- Nessus Network Monitor Support for IT, OT and IoT Assets: Nessus Network Monitor (formerly Passive Vulnerability Scanner or PVS) passively analyzes network traffic to provide continuous visibility into managed and unmanaged assets on the network, including IT, OT and IoT assets. It includes new capabilities for asset discovery and vulnerability identification on critical infrastructure and embedded systems, such as ICS and SCADA systems, which require a non-intrusive approach to vulnerability management. Nessus Network Monitor provides coverage for operational technologies in a variety of safety-critical infrastructure industries, including oil and gas, energy, utilities, public infrastructure, manufacturing, and medical/healthcare. Supported protocols include Bacnet, CIP, DNP3, Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, Siemens S7, ICCP, IEC 60870-5-104, IEEE C37.118, OpenSCADA, and more. Request a free trial of Nessus Network Monitor.
- Shadow Brokers, WannaCry and Intel AMT Scan Policy Templates: Tenable.io includes pre-built scan templates for identifying systems exposed to all Shadow Brokers exploits, including WannaCry, EternalRocks and any new versions of these attacks, as well as a check for the recent Intel AMT vulnerability (INTEL-SA-00075).
- Tenable.io Web Application Scanning: Q new product within the Tenable.io platform that safely and automatically scans web applications to accurately identify vulnerabilities, will be generally available on July 14, 2017.
