Tenable.io Achieves StateRAMP Authorization as Part of Our Commitment to Protect State and Local Governments
StateRAMP-authorized cloud solutions like Tenable.io meet stringent security and compliance standards.
Increasingly targeted by cyber criminals, state and local governments (SLGs) need highly-secure cloud solutions. StateRAMP authorization, which involves a rigorous security and compliance evaluation, helps SLGs reduce risk and efficiently verify the security of their cloud solutions.
Today, we’re excited to announce that Tenable.io is StateRAMP authorized, meaning our SLG customers can have peace of mind knowing that our vulnerability management solution meets the strict cybersecurity standards required by federal and SLG agencies.
Achieving this milestone is part of our continued commitment to providing secure, compliant products to help our public sector customers keep their data safe and protect against breaches.
Cybersecurity stakes keep climbing for SLGs
SLGs are on the front lines of cybersecurity. They hold access to sensitive databases and PII, and often oversee critical infrastructure. To meet citizens' needs, SLG agencies are embracing digital technologies from mobile to IoT to cloud. With the increased amount of sensitive data to protect and an expanded attack surface, it’s no surprise that cyber attacks against SLGs are becoming more prevalent.
To help SLG CISOs and security leaders identify truly secure and compliant cloud solutions, the State Risk and Authorization Management Program (StateRAMP) was launched. This new program provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud service providers (CSP) at the state level. The security verification model is based on the NIST SP 800-53 control framework and is modeled, in part, after FedRAMP.
Tenable.io’s StateRamp authorization
Tenable is excited to be a part of StateRAMP’s effort to secure state and local governments. Our StateRAMP active solution, Tenable.io, provides risk-based vulnerability management so you can:
- Get full visibility into the assets and vulnerabilities across your attack surface
- Continuously track and assess known and unknown assets— and their vulnerabilities, even dynamic assets like mobile devices, virtual machines and cloud instances
- Proactively identify and prioritize vulnerabilities with the highest impact to your organization
- Get immediate insight and visualizations into your security posture
With both StateRAMP and FedRAMP authorizations, you can be assured that Tenable.io is a secure, effective and tested cloud-based vulnerability management solution that meets the high security and compliance standards of Federal and state and local government agencies.
