Tenable Solutions Successfully IRAP Assessed, Reinforcing Commitment to Cybersecurity Excellence Among Government Agencies

Assessment completion allows government entities to harness the value of Tenable Vulnerability Management and Tenable Web App Scanning at a PROTECTED level

December 11, 2023 · Australia

Tenable®, the Exposure Management company, today announced that two of its solutions, Tenable Vulnerability Management and Tenable Web App Scanning, have been successfully assessed at a ‘PROTECTED’ level by the Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP), an initiative by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). 

The IRAP assessment is an independent evaluation of the implementation, appropriateness and effectiveness of a system’s security controls. As the foremost organisation in the exposure management category, Tenable’s completion of this assessment not only reinforces the company’s commitment to upholding the highest standards of cybersecurity compliance benchmarks but also assures government agencies that effective security controls are in place. Tenable's solutions are validated for their ability to safeguard sensitive data, particularly as government departments increasingly shift their workloads to the cloud. 

"The persistent breaches targeting government systems, critical infrastructure and information networks represent a genuine menace to Australia's national security,” said Robert Huber, chief security officer and head of research at Tenable. “The IRAP program stands as a pivotal assurance mechanism, ensuring technology solutions like Tenable’s adhere to the rigorous cyber standards of the Australian government. The successful completion of this assessment solidifies Tenable's commitment to advancing national security interests while upholding the highest echelons of security and compliance for critical government initiatives.”
 

With their agile, cloud-based flexibility and rigorous data isolation protocols, Tenable solutions navigate the complex terrain of dynamic assets often encountered in cloud and container environments. Going beyond vulnerability identification, Tenable's exposure management platform translates raw vulnerability data into actionable business insights, effectively mitigating cybersecurity risks. These capabilities are integral for Australian organisations looking to comply with the Australian Cyber Security Centre’s (ACSC) Essential 8 strategies.


"As organisations increasingly navigate the cloud landscape, the proliferation of cybersecurity solutions becomes evident," noted Scott McKinnel, Tenable ANZ's Country Manager. "The real challenge frequently lies in distilling actionable insights from the extensive data available. Tenable champions a paradigm shift, moving beyond the conventional practice of solely scanning on-premises IT assets for vulnerabilities. Instead, it advocates for a context-driven analytics approach, empowering cybersecurity teams to anticipate and proactively thwart threats."
