Announcing the successful acquisition of Bit Discovery
Today Tenable announced the successful close to its acquisition of Bit Discovery, Inc. (Bit Discovery), a leader in external attack surface management (EASM). Combining Tenable’s market-leading Cyber Exposure solutions with Bit Discovery’s EASM capabilities will provide customers with a differentiated 360-degree view of their full attack surface - both inside out and outside in - to identify and eliminate areas of known and unknown security risk.
Discovering and gaining insight into every part of an organization's digital footprint is an essential step for any effective cybersecurity program. Discovery has never been more critical, given the reliance on internet-facing services, applications and APIs. Modern organizations require continuous monitoring of their complete attack surface and context-aware intelligence on where to prioritize remediation efforts. The newly-announced Tenable.asm, which integrates the full capabilities of Bit Discovery’s technology, will continuously map the entire internet and discover connections to an organization's internet-facing assets, whether internal or external to their networks, to assess the security posture of their entire external attack surface. Tenable.asm will be available for purchase early in the third quarter of 2022.
Tenable is also integrating foundational quarterly attack surface discovery into its existing market-leading cyber exposure solutions at no additional cost to Tenable customers. New capabilities will be included in Tenable.io, Tenable.sc and Tenable.ep early in the third quarter of 2022.
