COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a release issued under the same headline yesterday by Tenable®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TENB), please note that in the second paragraph the hyperlink has been changed and the text has been updated. The corrected release follows:

Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced an enhanced Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) portal to supercharge partners’ cloud-based vulnerability management offerings with®. The updated portal will enable MSSPs to self-provision and self-service their own instances, up to 1,000 assets, empowering partners to build and launch vulnerability management services in the cloud within minutes.

In 2021, there will be an estimated 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. This widening skills gap comes at a time when organizations are struggling to get their hands around distributed work environments, new technologies and legacy IT. As a result, many are turning to MSSPs as their trusted advisers to secure these increasingly complex and dynamic environments.

“MSSPs have become the cybersecurity backbone of small-to-medium-sized businesses and Fortune 500 enterprises,” said Mark Thurmond, chief operating officer, Tenable. “With such a massive, untapped market opportunity, the MSSP portal will enable partners to spin up their own cloud-based vulnerability management services in minutes. Our commitment to and partnership with MSSPs reflects our conviction that speed is strategic, especially in the cloud.”

The portal will be available to Tenable’s more than 350 MSSP partners, including 16 of the top 20 providers according to Gartner market share data*, and will include the following key features:

  • Multi-Tenancy Console: Partners can self-provision and self-service each of their customers’ containers — from managing to monitoring to reporting — within one unified interface. The MSSP onboarding process will also be fully automated with the ability to dynamically assign new containers to partners’ MSSP Portals at the time of provisioning.
  • Single Sign-On: Partners only have to maintain a single set of user credentials to service all of their customers. After a single authentication, security service analysts will be able to securely access specific customers’ containers with the click of a button. Partners will also have the ability to restrict access to individual customer instances so that security analysts can only view customer environments they are responsible for.
  • Enterprise-Grade Data Security: The portal is a management layer that works on top of the company’s standard architecture which adheres to stringent security requirements. This means customer data is still 100 percent contained within their own container, fully encrypted and not accessible by any other parties. The portal will also enable role-based access control to restrict account access to only authorized users.

“Tenable’s newly enhanced MSSP portal provides our team with multi-tenant management capabilities and all from one portal,” said Rob Watson, Vice President of Security Services for eSentire, a leading global Managed Detection and Response (MDR) security services provider. “For example, we can log into all of our customers’ cloud containers, and it greatly reduces the need to manage multiple credentials per end-user container. This and other new functionality simplifies the overall delivery of our MDR security services.”

The MSSP portal enhancements are being rolled out in a phased approach. All enhancements will be available by the end of Q1 free of charge to all qualified MSSP partners.
