Safe & Tenable Join Forces to Empower Organizations to Quantify Risk in Today's Expanding Attack Surface

As businesses expand their digital presence, especially with the accelerated adoption of Generative AI implementations, the attack surface is exploding more rapidly than its risks can be managed. Current market solutions fail to effectively manage the escalating attack surface, leaving security analysts inundated with high and critical vulnerabilities across their enterprise. The absence of a data-driven method for prioritizing risk management results in a heavy reliance on guesswork and subjective assumptions. Research reveals that organizations utilizing a CVSS 7+ strategy waste 76% of their time on vulnerabilities with minimal risk, neglecting 44% of the most critical vulnerabilities in their environment.

A proven way to prioritize risk treatment is to quantify its financial impact on the business’s bottom line. Yet, this remains a critical gap, hindering effective risk management and resource allocation. Addressing these challenges requires a strategic approach that leverages advanced risk assessment tools and techniques. Safe Security has partnered with leading exposure management platform Tenable to facilitate enterprise cybersecurity requirements. SAFE brings the power of cyber risk quantification to Tenable’s expansive exposure management portfolio so customers can seamlessly include their enterprise-wide vulnerabilities with the overall Cyber Risk Quantification and Management platform.

The Value of SAFE x Tenable

Safe integrates with Tenable Vulnerability Management and Tenable Security Center to seamlessly aggregate enterprise-wide vulnerabilities, determine the likelihood of a successful attack, and calculate its potential financial impact. “We are very excited to partner with Tenable,” said Saket Bajoria, Chief Product Officer, Safe Security. “The integration of SAFE and Tenable helps customers leverage their investment in a leading vulnerability management solution by including its top risk and vulnerability identification and prioritization findings into the Cyber Risk Management platform that SAFE provides.”

Mutual customers will benefit from:

  1. Enterprise-wide Cyber Risk Management

    One of the key benefits of the SAFE and Tenable integration is the ability to consolidate cyber risk assessment in a single platform. With SAFE as the main Cyber Risk Management tool, organizations can gain a holistic view of all their cyber risk assessments in one place, consolidating the top issues detected by Tenable into the overall risk posture provided by SAFE. By combining issues detected with assessments of assets, workforce, and third parties, organizations can get an overall Breach Likelihood and Financial Risk impact, giving them an accurate representation of their risk and the ability to manage and reduce it in one platform.

  2. Enhanced Actionable Insights Across Your Entire Attack Surface

    Another advantage of the SAFE and Tenable integration is the prioritized actionable insights it provides across the entire enterprise attack surface. Risk teams can view the current posture across their attack surface and plan for risk reduction using the actionable insights provided by SAFE. With consolidated signals from all sources, including Tenable, organizations can prioritize the most critical issues and take action to mitigate them, reducing the likelihood and impact of potential breaches.

  3. Scenario-Specific Risk Assessment

    The SAFE and Tenable integration enables organizations to assess the likelihood of specific scenarios, such as ransomware or data compromise. Tenable provides prioritized insights for exposure management, and Safe adds an overlying layer of prioritization for additional risk issues. The integration can help security teams focus on the most critical scenarios and allocate resources more effectively to reduce the likelihood of these risks.

  4. Granular Asset Management

    The SAFE and Tenable integration also offers granular asset management capabilities. The integration pulls the desired asset tags from Tenable into SAFE, enabling teams to group their assets by application or business unit. This helps team-specific risk assessments and manages a unit's overall risk. Businesses can also use this approach to identify issues at a more granular level and take action to mitigate the risk.

The highlight of this partnership is that the SAFE platform assigns a potential financial impact with a $ value and likelihood metric to the findings from Tenable’s exposure management platform, creating a holistic risk picture for enterprises with both platforms. SAFE’s real-time, data-driven approach empowers enterprises, boards, regulators, and cyber insurance carriers to understand cyber risk in an aggregated and granular manner. The integration with Tenable is another step towards helping organizations build an AI-fueled, quantified, and dynamic cyber risk management culture.

SAFE integrates with the world's leading technology platforms to quantify cyber risk. It ingests real-time telemetry via read-only APIs from 50+ technology tools.
