Tenable has upgraded the Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) portal to supercharge partners’ cloud-based vulnerability management offerings with Tenable.io.
The updated portal will enable MSSPs to self-provision and self-service their own Tenable.io instances, up to 1,000 assets, empowering partners to build and launch vulnerability management services in the cloud within minutes.
“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 Tenable.io 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.”
“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.”
Gary Jackson, VP for APAC, Tenable said, “Visibility into dynamic cloud environments remains a headache for security teams in India and the rest of APAC as many lack dedicated resources and expertise. And in a digital and distributed environment, no two cloud environments are run the same way – making the task even more complex. By turning to MSSPs who have the ability to supercharge their cloud-based vulnerability management services within minutes, organizations can be rest assured that vulnerabilities and misconfigurations are identified at cloud speed. The new features within the Tenable.io MSSP portal further support and solidify Tenable’s steadfast commitment to our partners in the APAC region.”
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.
The Tenable.io 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.
