Get Continuous Visibility Into Your Cloud Assets, Vulnerabilities and Exposures
Eliminate Blind Spots and Secure Everything in the Cloud
- Your security team needs continuous visibility into your IT attack surface, including cloud environments.
- Legacy vulnerability management tools don't always work in the cloud, leaving you with blind spots and vulnerable to risks.
- Managing your risks in public cloud infrastructure is challenging, but understanding the role cloud assets play in your exposure management program will help you better protect your organization.
Growing From Vulnerability Management to Exposure Management
Managing Cyber Risk in a Dynamic, Cloud-native Infrastructure Requires More Than Legacy Vulnerability Management Tools
Netskope is a cloud access security broker (CASB) vendor whose patented Cloud XD technology gives clients 360-degree visibility into the cloud with data protection.
To manage the company's cloud-native infrastructure, the Netskope team wanted to evolve cybersecurity risk management from legacy vulnerability management to a more strategic approach for exposure management.
While looking for a more inclusive and holistic cyber risk management strategy, Netskope discovered a gap between what they wanted to accomplish and existing vulnerability management tools.
The team's goal was to move from vulnerability overload — data with no context and no insight to quickly prioritize risk and response — to a more effective way to manage cyber risk decisions.
For this transition, Netskope deployed Tenable for continuous visibility into cyber risk. With Tenable's advanced reporting, the company can now align its security goals to business objectives.

The highly dynamic nature of the cloud means now, more than ever, it's imperative to adopt cloud security vulnerability and remediation processes that are as agile and efficient as those you have for on-premises assets.
About 41% of organizations, according to a SANS Institute survey, have adapted — or are in the process of adapting — vulnerability management strategies for cloud environments.
While much of what you know about legacy vulnerability management is applicable for the cloud, there are several core differences.
Effective cloud security requires continuous vulnerability assessment, as well as constant attack surface insight and assessment.
This white paper explores the scope of vulnerability and threat management for cloud environments and offers tips about how you can:
- Find vulnerabilities in a hybrid or off-premises model with a cloud-native approach
- Understand DevOps infrastructure-as-code model
- Evaluate threats and protect your cloud data and cloud assets

Tenable Integrates With Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Security (GCP) Command Center
Comprehensive Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)
Tenable supports Google Cloud Security (GCP), Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide you with more visibility into your public and private cloud assets — all through a single dashboard. This means you can now better manage cyber risk across your entire attack surface, including the cloud, to reduce your organization’s cyber risk.
Aligning Cloud Security With The Cybersecurity Lifecycle
Cloud solutions are all about speed, scale and usability. While cloud infrastructure brings many benefits and flexibility to your organization, it can also increase your cyber risk. From asset discovery to benchmarking success, correlate your cloud security processes with the five phases of the cybersecurity lifecycle:
If your organization has moved processes and applications to the cloud, then you likely know it's built for speed and you can easily scale with it. And while that's great for business efficiencies, it can create new challenges for your security team by inadvertently increasing your cyber risks.
Tenable Cloud Security connects to your cloud providers to scan your assets without installing any agents into your runtime infrastructure. It also monitors the infrastructure deployments across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
If you're using legacy vulnerability management scanning tools for your cloud environments, you may have blind spots within your attack surface. Instead of those legacy tools, harden your cloud infrastructure based on Center for Internet Security (CIS) best practices.
From host to workloads and data, Tenable can help you find vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and other security issues across all your cloud assets so you can plan and prioritize for remediation.
Once you've assessed all of the assets across your cloud environments, you should prioritize which vulnerabilities pose the greatest threat to your organization.
Tenable enables you to automatically analyze those risks by evaluating threat intelligence, exploit availability and other vulnerability data so you can prioritize remediation for those most likely to impact your organization in the near future.
Once you've discovered all of the assets within your IT attack surface — including your cloud infrastructure and discovered your vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and other security issues — prioritize them for risk to quickly and efficiently remediate issues.
Tenable enables you to shift left so you can find vulnerabilities before they reach production. You can create secure machine and container images before deployment to prevent additional vulnerabilities and can integrate vulnerability management processes into your CI/CD systems. Additionally, bug-tracking and remediation tools that use APIs enable you to track bugs and seamlessly integrate remediation into your DevOps.
Finally, all of these steps align to determine your organization's cyber risk. You can use Tenable's advanced analytics and scoring to get a clearer picture of your actual organizational risk. From there, you can communicate your cloud security program success and weaknesses to key stakeholders and team members to plan for program growth and improvements.
Internal benchmarking will help analyze how your program measures up across departments. Industry peer benchmarking helps evaluate your processes against similar organizations. From here, you can align your security program goals with your organizational goals to facilitate stronger decision-making and planning.
Protect Your Cloud Environments With a Risk-Based Approach to Vulnerability Management
Legacy Vulnerability Management Tools Can't Meet All Your Cloud Needs
Cloud environments enable your business to quickly build and scale new infrastructure and rapidly react to customer demands. But without the right capabilities to detect and manage vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in an ever-changing environment, this speed and scalability can be a double-edged sword.
Legacy vulnerability management can't keep pace with this new paradigm, and point solutions lead to information silos without a unified view of all vulnerabilities.
Your security teams should adopt a risk-based vulnerability management approach to find all vulnerabilities across your attack surface so you can focus on the critical security issues that matter most — vulnerabilities attackers are most likely to exploit.
Here's a quick summary of how you can adopt a risk-based approach for cloud vulnerability management:
Identify cloud assets in a dynamic environment
Use scan templates and deployment models built for cloud providers and cloud-native infrastructure
Plan and execute vulnerability remediation based on business risk, using machine learning to correlate vulnerability severity, probability of exploitation and asset criticality
From development to operations, prioritize which exposures to fix first and leverage powerful integrations to optimize your entire vulnerability management lifecycle
Measure and benchmark cyber risk to make better business and technology decisions
