Why XM Cyber Is Integrating with Tenable.io

By providing critical attack-centric context, XM Cyber helps extend the power of Tenable’s cyber exposure platform

Like peanut butter and jelly, some things are good in isolation but great when they are combined.

In the world of cybersecurity, joining the power of two advanced technologies together often delivers similar improvements. By integrating one platform into a new ecosystem, you can extend the power of that ecosystem – and unlock a range of powerful new benefits for customers.

An Exciting New Integration

Here at XM Cyber, we recently announced a new integration with Tenable.io as part of their cyber exposure ecosystem. As a result of this new integration, our industry-leading and award-winning attack path management platform will enhance Tenable’s solution with risk-free and continuous attack modeling.

This will enable security teams to see the full path of a potential attack by providing critically important attack path intelligence that pinpoints the key entities, assets, or devices that many attack paths can traverse through to breach an organization’s critical assets. By using XM Cyber technology, you can see your own environments “through the eyes of an attacker”.

This means Tenable customers get visibility into the key vulnerabilities that have the highest risk to their critical assets, allowing them to prioritize remediation efforts – and take immediate steps toward protecting their “crown jewel” assets.

Reducing Cyber Risk

Tenable has integrations with a variety of security and IT operations technology partners as part of its cyber exposure ecosystem. Tenable, alongside its ecosystem partners, creates the world’s richest set of cyber exposure data to analyze, gain context and take decisive action to better understand and reduce cyber risk.

As the global leader in attack path management, XM Cyber brings a new approach that uses the attacker’s perspective to find and remediate critical attack paths across on-premises and multi-cloud networks. The XM Cyber platform enables companies to rapidly respond to cyber risks affecting their business-sensitive systems.

How This Partnership Extends the Power of Tenable

XM Cyber’s platform is designed to help strengthen many aspects of an organization’s security posture. As a vulnerability detection platform, Tenable provides reliable information about the vulnerabilities to which the client’s network and devices are exposed.

By working together, XM Cyber and Tenable will provide clients with an even deeper understanding of their risks and how to mitigate them.

Specifically, our integration extends the power of Tenable’s offerings by providing the following:

  • Users now can determine whether business-sensitive critical assets are at risk.
  • XM Cyber allows for the identification of choke points. This allows users to learn whether an asset is located at a critical intersection through which many attack paths traverse. Identification of choke points ultimately helps prioritize remediation.
  • XM Cyber also includes vulnerabilities from Tenable, something that will enrich our attack modeling engine.

In Conclusion

XM Cyber, the global leader in attack path management, brings a new approach that uses the attacker’s perspective to find and remediate critical attack paths across on-premises and multi-cloud networks.

The XM Cyber platform enables companies to rapidly respond to cyber risks affecting their business-sensitive systems by continuously finding new exposures, including exploitable vulnerabilities and credentials, misconfigurations, and user activities. XM Cyber constantly simulates and prioritizes attack paths putting mission-critical systems at risk, providing context-sensitive remediation options.

By working with partners such as Tenable, XM Cyber can bring the benefits of its advanced attack path management technology to bear in new and exciting ways – and ultimately help today’s organizations keep their most valuable assets safe from sophisticated and dedicated attackers.
